Dream Theater Plan South American Tour; Fave Live Cips

Posted on Wednesday, February 24, 2010 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments8 Comments

I recently talked to Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater for a little article on the band's upcoming South American tour. This chat put me in a progressive sort of mood so I popped on a little Dream Theater. I know these guys are huge in their respective circle...but it doesn't seem like anyone here every mentions them in comments as a favorite band or live experience. I've never seen a Dream Theater show so I can't comment - but I'm assuming it's pretty awesome.

With that - some of my fave Dream Theater live clips.

"The Glass Prison"



"Metropolis"

Dream Theater are one of my top five bands. But since this blog is about Glam, I never thought about mentioning them. I love Prog and Glam, but ususally I find both genres doesn't really mix with other people.

They are amazing live. I saw them quite a few times now, last time in October 2009. One of the best concerts last year. If you get a chance to see them, Allyson - don't miss it.

They are one of my TOP3 bands. I saw them live 7 times so far. The first concert was April 15, 1993, last one was October 19, 2009.

We also have a huge collection of cd's, dvd's and vhs. 50 releases so far, including all regular studio albums, live albums, singles, videos/dvd's and all official bootlegs (cd's and dvd's) available from YTSE JAM RECORDS.

My musical taste goes way beyond Glam. I never mentioned them here before because this is a website about Glam and not about Progressive Metal.

There's a reason Joe Satriani (I'm not worthy Satch,you rule!!) brings John Petrucci out on his G3 tour pretty regularly. The man can flat out melt a guitar neck when he gets going...

They're good, but a bit too perfect live. If that makes any sense. Like Rush.
I almost prefer a band that will screw up occasionally..

If'n it'll make anyone feel better, there is a 'glam'link to Dream Theater. Rod Morgenstein & Kip Winger both have worked with Jordan Rudess. See Jordan's solo albums "Rhythm of Time" and "The Road Home" for good examples of their collaborations.

Not only are Dream Theater so not Glam Metal, they are so unrock!

Just proof that you can have all the talent and chops in the world but it's still all about ideas.

I do applaud their covers of bands who are coincidently either Glam Rock or have influenced that genre as well as Glam Metal with songs from the likes of Queen and Led Zeppelin.

I haven't seen them in quite some time but what's up with the two singers? Was this just a one time deal or is that guy permanent?

That's Charlie Dominici, the singer on DT's first album "When Dream And Day Unite".

The video is taken from the 15th Anniversary DVD:
