I had the luck of seeing Joe Satriani & Dream Theater tonight perform tonight in Baltimore. Holy GOD. Joe Satriani was good. Nothing to memorable, but a good show, good performance. Dream Theater.. <b>WOW.</b> Highlights: John + John playing soccer during Ytse Jam - including solos. Dance of Eternity played approx. 2x it's normal speed. War Inside My Head -> The Test that Stumped them All played approx. 3x faster than normal speed (this was seriously insane to listen to. INSANE.) Jordan Rudess's rotating Kurzweil. Jordan Rudess getting beaned in the head with a drumstick during the really moving piano solo in The Spirit Carries On. Animal (from the muppets) playing gong. 2 LTE tracks back to back (medley). James LaBrie's voice didn't crack or falter once! Mike Portnoy. Period.. everything this guy did (playing, or 'playing' heh).. outrageous. Encore was Learning to Live (AWESOME).. no Change of Seasons though A++. If you have the chance to see this tour, SEE IT. It's worth the $50ish/ticket. Jordan Rudess nodded at me (hi-5's / handshake at the end..) JMs new signature bass is going to be a bit $$$.
