Liquid Tension Experiment- 10th anniversary show - INCREDIBLE
Wow. What a goddamn concert. Unbelievable. I havent enjoyed a Dream Theater album too much since 2002 or so, but LTE has always been one of my favorite bands. The two cds they put out under the LTE name were absolutely sweet. But this show was something else. Everything was SPOT on, and the sound was fantastic. I haven't enjoyed a concert this much in a long time.
Afterwards, me and my buddy waited outside to meet the band. Longest wait I've ever had for a band...over an hour and a half but it was totally worth it. Got to meet John Petrucci, one of my favorite guitarists, plus Jordan Rudess and Mike Portnoy. Managed to get Petrucci to sign my Images and Words and Scenes cds, and my SFAM poster (along with Rudess and Portnoy). Plus, managed to score pics with Petrucci and Portnoy. Overall a fantastic night. They were all extremely nice, even after TWO back to back shows that ended overall at around 1:40 AM.
They played: Acid Rain, Biaxident, Kindred Spirits, When the Water Breaks, Osmosis, Paradigm Shift, Universal Mind, Another Dimension, Freedom of Speech, and State of Grace (I believe this was the setlist, plus some extended jams). Overall an amazingly good time!! If you can still see this show in Chicago and LA freakin' go!
