The Downfall of Dream Theater in Perth

I’m not particularly a Dream Theater fan… and I didn’t have a ticket to see them on Australia Day. In fact I barely registered their visit to Perth at all, until Adrian sent me a link to this YouTube vid:

Which is pretty funny. Some poor Dream Theater fan got a bit upset (understandably) at all the stuffing around with the show, but managed to channel that frustration into some clever video editing.

What’s even funnier though, is that the band opened their show with the clip:

Everyone that I’ve spoken to that’s seen it, starts laughing or snorting uncontrollably at the point where the venue is compared to “a fucking tin shed that sounds like the inside of Lars’ snare”. That’s a drummer joke and a Metallica joke all rolled up in one. Gold.

  1. um, a “Dream Theater fan” would not get upset at seeing a 2 hour show that should have been 3-3.5 hours. The fact is that you rarely see anything near that long at a concert. The DT gig at Perth was absolutely nuts, the atmosphere and intensity that was generated by these guys was literally out of this world. That “Dream Theater fan” is clearly not a fan at all – just someone who is out to seek revenge for their poor, self inflicted less than ordinary life…
