I am yet to buy tickets for the Toronto show...which is weird because they´re one of my favourite bands.

Same here and I don't know why.

I saw the Astonishing tour and thought it was friggin' awesome. I almost wonder if subconsciously I'm afraid to see James attempt "Another Day" in front of my daughter and crash & burn :fury:

I wouldn't mind them honoring the anniversary, but at least give me a new tune or two to give me a reason for going.

Or just play Images and Words and The Astonishing. I'd be up for that.

“The Dream Theater show has been cancelled due to unforeseeable circumstances involving the size of the show production.”

I wonder what that means...their stage is usually just lights and a big screen in the back. Do they have their own mascot coming on stage now?

Did this happen for your show in Toronto?

Not that I'm aware of...but I haven't bought the tickets for it yet.

Kevin Moore did. This was the exact time when he decided he wanted to quit the band.

He deserved to be fired after that, it sounds daft. If I'd been in the band or the producer and I heard that bit I'd just say: "Ok STOP! Don't ever do that bit again. I want it wiped from the tapes. I want it gone!"

6:00 is a great tune, and I see nothing wrong with the 6:00 on a Christmas morning sample.

Even better live. Would have been great to hear Kevin do it live though.

There's negativity and there's constructive criticism. Bashing reckless abandon thoughts is not worth glancing at. I never ever read. If someone has intent on why they dig or not it's all good.

I've been labeled a DT HATER on here over the many years, yet I used to LOVE THEM!

"6:00" is one of the greatest songs ever made!!!  It's a fun song to play on my drums even though it's a tough one!  Love those octobans!

It means they ran out of tight leather pants for James to wear.

I like Dream Theater.

I've liked them a lot in the past.

I've cared for them a little less in the more recent pass.

I like them a lot more in the even more recent past, as in the past few weeks and especially days.

My dad and I just got Awake, which no one ever told me was their best album, or at least the best one that'd I'd have heard yet if I were to listen to it. IMO, blows Images away, great as Images is, blows ADToE away, as epic as that is, blows Octavarium away, great as the title track is, and blows 6DoIT away, great as the suite is. Probably blows the Astonishing away too, but I've still only gotten through half of that album.

Awake is my new favorite Dream Theater album, the mini suite with Voices in it might be my new favorite Dream Theater piece, and lastly Space-Dye Vest is so awesome. I should've gotten this thing YEARS  ago.

What do folks here think of Awake in comparison to the rest of their discography?

Awake is one of their best, and it's better than Images. Scenes and Awake are their two 90s albums that stand well above the rest.

I heard some of Scenes once, it sounded good, but I didn't pay much attention and didn't get all the way through it.

My favorites are When Dream And Day Unite Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence and Octavarium.

I like Awake a lot but not quite as much as those three.

Fair enough. It's certainly not for everyone, but since I got into metal over the past year, I think that's opened me up to loving Awake a lot more.

Awake is a great album. I just like those three better.

There are only two Dream Theater albums I'm not really into: Train Of Thought (like about half) and Systematic Chaos (Only dig Constant Motion, Repentance and Prophets Of War (Probably my favorite from that album.)

I've recently been made aware of how they've banned fans taking video at their shows....I don't know how I feel about that. The phones at concerts do get a little annoying but a sweeping ban on video seems very Draconian.
