notes by the taper
I am a relatively new Dream Theater fan (about 3 years) even though I'm going to turn 62 in a month. A friend of mine and I decided that as a bucket list item that we would try to see Dream Theater and pull out all the stops. In December this tour was announced and I get in on the pre-sale and get 2 Platinum VIP tickets to the Chicago show and then we wait for April 30th.

The day arrives and we do it up big with expensive hotel, reservations at Morton's Steakhouse (maybe we should have gone to Gibson's) and then the meet & greet with the band. The meet & greet doesn't start until 5pm so we have time to kill and decide to take the Chicago Theater tour at noon. It's interesting and then the tour guide takes the small group into the theater proper. At that point I lose interest in the tour and now I'm focused on the band's stage crew setting up for tonight's show. I take 30 photos or so (included here). They are nearly done and are testing lights and running white noise through the PA and testing the sub-woofers. Fun times!

Showtime arrives and we do the meet & greet (my first) and it was fun. The band was gracious and everyone was nice. Security, though, was tigjht with regards to cameras and recorders. When in line to go into the theater for the meet & greet they tell us we will be wanded as we go in, but lucky me the guy with the wand wasn't too diligent and missed me altogether. He gave my buddy a half-hearted wanding and we were in. After the meet & greet we could leave the theater and come back for the show, but I opted to stay as I didn't want to risk being wanded again. It all worked out fine.

The show was recorded from the 2nd row, 5 seats from the center on the left right in front of John Myung. I stuck the recorder in my shirt pocket and let 'er rip. There are some downsides to being that close when recording. The keyboards were lost at times or at low volume. I would imagine being back would have helped. Sometimes the guitar didn't seem loud enough either, but being up close to watch the band is quite incredible. I think the recording came out good. A lot clapping and some crowd noise in the expected spots.

I've included a folder of photos from that day. The stage set up ones aren't the best as my zoom wasn't that good. The meet & greet ones were not taken by me, but by Zippy, the meet & greet coordinator. I hijacked them to give you an idea of what the meet & greet was like in Chicago.
