Re: Dream Theater

Anyone seen a setlist yet? It's looking pretty touch and go to see if the new CD "Black Clouds & Silver Linings" is going to land on my doormat before the show. Rat poop.

Re: Dream Theater

I don't really like the new CD. It's sort of the same stuff. Systematic Chaos was a lot better I thought.

But the concert will be awesome for sure. I'm seeing them in Toronto on 14 August!

Anyone seen a setlist yet? It's
In Gelsenkirchen, Germany (last night) Neal Morse opened with:
The Creation
Leviathan
We all need some light (/w mike on drums)
Author of Confusion/ I'm the Guy
Cradle to the grave
Lifeline

DT played right after:
In the presence of Enemies part 2
Beyond this life
Take the Time
A rite of passage
Hollow Years
Caught in a Web
Erotomania
Voices
Solitary Shell
Forsaken
As I am
Metropolis/learning to live/ ACOS

I'm a bit shocked that they almost didn't play anything from the new album.

BTW, I'm planning to take the train from eastern Switzerland, and I would REALLY appreciate a ride back to Zurich if anyone's heading that way afterwards.

Portnoy makes a different setlist for each show, so the set list won't be the same.

Where's everyone standing tonight? I wouldn't mind meeting some fellow fany. I've never been to the Wettingen place though, so I don't really know where it would be anyway.

Re: Dream Theater

Bozo, Rabina and I hoped to find you there, but we didn't see any deathmachine walking around.

Regarding the concert itself, I liked the playlist a lot and, surprisingly, it was very similar to that they played in Germany:

In the presence of Enemies
Beyond this life
Misunderstood
A rite of passage
Hollow Years
Erotomania
Voices
Solitary Shell (a long, jammed, fantastic version)
The Spirit carries on
Metropolis/learning to live/ ACOS

Re: Dream Theater

Cool gig - started at 20:15, over at 22:00, what's with the early times? Strange venue, very similar to the Eulachhalle in Winterthur (lousy acoustics in a concrete sports hall).

Favorite bit was the Rudess/Petrucci solo stint during the encore. These guys know their stuff - excellent!

Next time we will definitely have to meet. I was in a great spot for Cynic. Then afterward, I had to take a leak, and when I tried to get back to my original spot people were being dicks and wouldn't let me through. And with no one there "reserving" it for me and the inability to articulately argue I was already there, I just stood further back. Oh well, I'm tall.

I heard a couple of english speakers on the way out. You two weren't talking about fire safety on the way out of the show, were you?

I liked the playlist too. I was hoping for some stuff from the new album, but I was sated. The encore song was great, 2 of my favorites.

I'm hoping next time through they go with the "An Evening with..." format so they play 2 sets.

Yes we were. I had mentioned what a crush it was on the way out. Hey, there's always Porcupine Tree to look forward to in Wettingen this fall.
