Well, the gig was last night ... and it was amazing.
Dream Theater put on quite a show & Mike Mangini was outstanding on the drums - you'd think he'd been with the band for ages !!
My favourite track they played has to be "The Spirit Carries On" with John Petrucci playing an extended solo at the beginning. :) :) :)

There are some videos of the gig on Youtube, but they're all taken on phones, so the quality isn't too good.
Here's The Spirit Carries On vid : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXmPI4nAJq4
Revised on Friday with a better version with the intro ! ;)

I love watching this band live - their musicianship is just so top notch, it's a joy to see. ;D

Here's the setlist :

Dream Is Collapsing intro (Hans Zimmer song)
   
Bridges in the Sky
6:00

Great stuff, Jim ! :)

It sounds as if you had a great time. Another group that I'd love to see live myself. Thanks for the write-up, appreciated. 8-)
