» From "Wembley!" // February 12, 2012 10:54:01 PM UTC
Yeah, after the stunning gig at Leeds O2 last year, we were really looking forward to the Wembley gig.
Didn't think much of the support band - the sound was far too poorly mixed.
Then on came Dream Theater.
We gave it 3 or 4 songs, then went to complain to reception about the accoustics. The woman there said 'yes it doesn't usually sound this bad' and gave us a couple of balcony tickets to see if that worked.
After giving it another two songs, we decided to give it up as a bad job and walked out, And we werent the only ones - a little congregation of 15-20 people were on the entrance plaza discussing the evenings events thus far.
To summarize - the sound was awful. No bass whatsoever - Myung may as well not have been there. From what we all worked out, the sound desk was probably manned by Mangini's mate through an Alba walkman as all you could hear were muffled drum booms. The keyboards and guitar were tinny and without substance owing to a lack of bass tones. And another point - why do DT feel the need to 'apologise' for Mangini being there? I can understand a special intro on Mangini's opening tour, but to STILL be saying at the start of the gig that 'this guy inspires us every day' is tantamount to admitting that 'this guy is however still playing with us'.
Very disappointing all round I'm afraid - sorry guys.
