Dream Theater – New Album Coming Soon | Official Site
I've seen DT countless times. Unfortunately the last two times at bloody Wembley Arena. The sound was truly abysmal. Seated row 5 block A4 with a speaker stack in your face gave monophonic, loud distorted sound albeit with a decent enough view. Labrie's soaring vocals were lost in the mush and any subtlety by anyone else stood no chance.
An "evening with" is an epic format but alas, gone are the days of Hammersmith Apollo with two nights, two different set lists and great sound.
I shall probably forgo any opportunity to see DT (or any band) ever again at Wembley Arena. It is THE shitest venue.
James, Jordan, Mike, John and John I implore you to move your London gigs to better venues that justify a. the ticket price, b. your talent, c. our loyalty.
Compare that with Steve Wilson or Steve Hackett at Royal Albert Hall, Rush at O2 or lets face it anywhere else. There is no comparison
