I'm glad that I wasn't the only one to have experienced the awful sound at the gig. Yes, John F...I'm one of the "whining europeans".. As you seem to be one of the only concertgoers who felt that the sound was "superb", you must be related to the sound engineer, as he obviously thought the same......... (or are you the sound engineer?......)
I agree with Musiclovers. This was my first Dreamtheater gig, and I was not disappointed, however the sound was dreadful...... I was able to see the sound engineer, and he hardly moved a muscle all night, apart from during the first couple of numbers. He must have been hearing the same quality of sound as everybody else, but chose to do nothing about it. A real shame as it could have been so much better.. However....the quality of musicianship was outstanding and a joy to behold!!!!
