I met Dream Theater!

Sat 29 Sep – Dream Theater

Before the show DTNorway (the official Norwegian Dream Theater fanclub) had a pre-party in Oslo Spectrum. Nice to meet the people you "talk" to every day on the forum! The fanclub had been given 21 backstage-passes for a meet-and-greet with the band, and I was one of the lucky ones that won!

When Symphony X started to play, we were led down backstage (downstage??), and after a few minutes the band arrived. We then took photos with the band, before a small signing-session took place.

Backstage with Dream Theater. Me in front of Mike Portnoy:

I got my "Chaos in Motion" tour-book signed by the whole band, and got the chance to say hi and shake hands with all the members of the band. Extremely cool!

After the meet-and-greet it was back to the show, and I got to see the last two songs of Symphony X.

Then it was time for Dream Theater. Nothing much to say really... It is Dream Theater, and it was great as always! Very nice light-show this time, but other than that it was much like the other shows I've seen (except the new songs of course).

This was my fifth DT-show, and I will be back next time they visit Norway as well!

    I also have to point out that Symphony X did an awsome show before DT started to play. Really got the crowd going. Good job Symphony X.

    Too bad you had to miss out on most of Symphony X to meet DT, they truly played an awe-inspiring set! I wish they had time to play some more songs, though, like Smoke and Mirrors and even The Odyssey(*drool*) Russel Allen's voice made the hairs on my hand stand up.

    @DonniSharK: If you read closer you will notice that the last five songs were in a medley. They didn't play the whole five songs, but merged them together and played some bits of all of them. Can't remember exactly but I think the medley lasted about 10-15 minutes.
