Dream Theater -- Philadelphia, PA -- October 16th, 2011

First review, 14th time seeing DT....usually play Tower when headlining Philly but played at the smaller Merriam Theater downtown this time around. Some empty 4th level seats, but overall crowd was into the set. Periphery was playing 2nd of two night fill in slot for Trivium. They we kind of generic prog metal.

DT has been playing lots of new songs this tour and this night was no exception as almost half the set was from the new cd. Nothing from Black Clouds all tour from what I have seen. LaBrie was in good voice and rest of the band were their normal amazing selves. New drummer's solo spotlight was interesting and he is clearly enjoying playing in the band, though Portnoy's stage presence is missed. Highlights included Endless Sacrifice, Silent Man, Outcry, Breaking All Illusions
