"Fried Ears And Other Receipes By Dream Theater "




Ahhh, I love the feeling of Fried Ears in the morning. Mmmmm, tasty too.

DAMN, I had earplugs in & they were still hurting days after. I had no interest in any of the other bands so we got there just in time for DT. This, being my cherry-busting first experience at the House Of Blues, I had no idea what to expect sound & security-wise. As we're walking into the venue, what do I see? House security and their wand metal detectors. Well, they found my deck & after a little shuck-and-jive with the flunky ( who was clueless, he actually thought it was a radio ) I scoped out the sweet spot, dead center about 5 feet in front of the soundboard, and rolled tape. 

Knowing that MP takes into consideration the set-list from the last time they were in AC, I was just a bit curious as to what was gonna be played & man was I blown away. DT started almost immediately with The Root Of All Evil & collectively kicked the crowd's asses. Next up was A Fortune In Lies which I’d never seen live so that, for me,  was worth the price of admission. Panic Attack got the crowd super-hyped and I thought a damn pit was gonna form. Good thing it didn’t considering where I was positioned although I was not to be that lucky during Megadeth's set, but that’s another review.

Under A Glass Moon proved once & for all that JLB is just getting better as he gets older. The band was solid and on fire for Endless Sacrifice, Caught In A Web, Just Let Me Breathe & Never Enough, which is one of my favorite tracks off Octavarium. Home was up next ( featuring a belch from MP, not me ) & seemed to captivate the audience with the intro until they kicked in to the main riff when they got going again. As I Am into Pull Me Under ( with the wacky speed/slow section ) rounded out the set and had me ready for Megadeth, who, BTW, I last saw at Rikki Rachtman's Cathouse in L.A. on the Rust In Peace Tour. Now THAT was fucking metal !!

Prepare to have thy Ears Fried. ENJOY !!!!!!!!
