[quote=The Shaman]is the best song ever, by anyone. Period.
Such a positive, epic beautiful masterpiece of awesomeness.[/quote]
I totally 100% agree with this!
With so many great DT songs it is hard to pick just one favorite but Surrounded is it for me.
Seeing it live...there just is nothing else like it.

What a fantastic night at the Orpheum! We got into town just before 5:00 to grab some dinner and a beer before lining up for tickets & swag (SierraMark, did we bump into your & your 12 y/o coming down the steps from the Gov't Center Garage?). Good stuff, changed into the t-shirt when we brought the bags back to the car, no autographed band photo though. Seats were 8th row, #2,3 & 4 from the center aisle, which was the whole point! The half of Trivium we heard was very good. Amazing, amazing DT performance! It was a very structured, spot on set. The crowd had great energy.
Hopefully the come back to Boston on the 2nd leg of the tour. James hinted as such...fingers crossed! [/quote]
Nope, that was not me, we took the T from Alewife. I totally agree with your assessment of the show, it was great. My son totally loved it.
I also hope that they will be back on the second leg. I did see a rumor someplace that maybe it would be "an evening with" in the spring. That woudl be awesome!
It was Eugene Friesen. I never heard of him but apparantly he is a professor at Berklee, I assume that is where they know him from?
The show was great as Philba says. Alot of love towards Mike Mangini. At the end of the show mike pulled out his flip cam or whatever it was and was taking a video of the crowd...the place went nuts.
I was a very good show.
[quote=NHBobcat]I too am a relative late comer to the awesomeness that is DT, But it was a co-worker that introduced me to DT it was Train of Thought, man I was totally blown away so I had to get more =) It was quite awhile after ToT had come out so the first thing i got was the Score 20th Anniversary Tour DVD - WOW !!! mere words cant begin to describe how amazing that DVD is - IMHO the BEST live DVD ever made
I got my son hooked on DT with that DVD, so we vowed to see them live, sadly thru bad timing or whatever our efforts were thwarted so much to our excitement we were able to get tickets to the Boston show, a late Birthday present for me, my B'day is Oct. 3rd
I am very much hoping they will pull out something special with MM's triumphant return to Boston and also the band all met here at Berkley.
But i'm sure whatever they play we will not be disappointed - counting down the days and hours =)
Also I hear that DT will stay a bit after the show and chat with fans after the show, does anyone know where the busses park at The Orpheum in Boston ? My son and I would love to show our appreciation
Any info given will be much appreciated, Thanks !![/quote]
The busses park on Hamilton Street, that is the street directly in front of the Orpheum. I've seen DT at the Orpheum a number of time but have never had the chance to hang out to meet them and unfortunately this time will be no different.
Enjoy the show!
Philba1966, I think drop2d nailed it. I've been to quite a few DT shows in Boston and a couple in NYC (RCMH and with Maiden). I will be there next week, ninth row with my 12 year old son. He has been listening to DT since he was born. I have videos of him playing his play drum set along with Mike Portnoy on the LSNY.
I am very much looking forward to bringing my son to his first DT show, these guys are the greatest!
