It's not the density that's the problem, it's the lack of interested people.

Man, people can hate on DragonForce as much as they want but they sounded great when I saw them this last tour. Maybe they cleaned up their live sound or something but they sounded good and were entertaining as hell.

I have seen them multiple times, the first was amazing, and it was 4-5 years ago.
I saw them over the summer and they were not so good. Boring, I dunno, I just think they have lost it with the newly acquired 12 year old fanbase. One of them honestly had a guitar hero symbol on his guitar

Either way, you know what to do.

I'd like to second this. I've seen Dragonforce, first at Ozzfest and then at a show in Los Angeles at the Wiltern. The Ozzfest set was short and fantasic... loved it. No complaints and I wanted to hear a longer set. Be careful what you wish for... the longer set in Los Angeles was horrible for the exact reasons you've mentioned. I left asking why I enjoyed them so much at Ozzfest.

I've heard they they've sucked live, but lately I've also heard that they've gotten much better live. I guess I'll just have to (eventually) find out for myself. One day.

Yeah, I have a bunch of friends who saw them at Ozzfest and said they were excellent, while a different friend saw them at a club show and said they weren't great. Wonder what happened there.

At any rate, I might go out to the Providence show to meet up with a friend, depending on the quality of the opening acts.

I might be at the Providence show, depending on who the opening bands end up being. I honestly can't remember much of their Ozzfest set except that almost the entire crowd was sitting down (except a handful of people, including me), and now everyone loves them.
