Dream Theater Concert: Sydney, Australia 2008

Posted by Atilla89 on January 30, 2008

So today I went to a Dream Theater concert. Let me just start by saying that it was one of the best concerts I have ever been to in my life. It went for something like 3 hours with song after song coming on with only a 15 minute break between sessions! The management were unorganised so people either sat wherever or moved around the main floor. I took photos and videos while in the seating and then for the 2nd half just went head banging in the front row (which was amazing by the way!). The audience were good, even if they were a bit docile by my standards (no pits or wall of deaths, just jumping and head banging). I also got a really awesome Dream Theater T-Shirt which I will wear often as it looks great. As always I don’t really remember the play list so any help in filling that in would be appreciated.

Edit: I am but my video’s are actually to big and YouTube is refusing to upload them. This means I won’t be able to put them on this blog, however I will try put 1 or more good photos on the site in the mean time. Thank you very much everyone for contributing to the set list, it is appreciated πŸ˜€

    What is the name of the songs that they play in the intro?

    i know the first one is the soundtrack of Psycho, but what is the one they play right before constant motion??

  14. Atilla89 said

    To tell you the truth, I don’t really know. Sorry about that, maybe someone else here can help you with that.
