To our patient fans in Madrid

    To our patient fans in Madrid:
     
    We apologize!  One of our trucks (well, the one carrying all of our video equipment) broke down somewhere between the Oporto and Madrid shows.  
     
    We agonized before the Madrid show about what to do. We hoped to load in the late truck and fix the video in time to give you both a) the full concert and b) the video experience we had planned for you. Despite our incredible crew’s best efforts though, we could not get the truck unloaded and the video completely up and running on time.
     
    We tried hard to ensure that you saw the entire length of An Evening With Dream Theater.  Much to our (and your) frustration though, we had to do the entire Madrid concert without fully operative video. Unfortunately, the time spent attempting to get the late truck in and the video up and running forced us to shorten our performance slightly; in the end, we had no choice but to adhere to Madrid’s strict curfew.
     
    Again, we apologize to all of our great fans in Madrid, and we thank you all for your patience and understanding.   Please know that we played our hearts out, and we sincerely hope that you still enjoyed DT and our Madrid show!
