Scenes From A Memory

For nearly 25 years I’ve been a devoted and somewhat obsessed fan of Dream Theater. Recently, I had the privilege to be part of a radio interview on The Colin McEnroe show on NPR to talk about my “band obsession”. With so many years – and so many concerts – behind me, I thought it was time to do a little photo blog of a Dream Theater concert.

In 2009, as part of the Progressive Nation tour, I again scored front row seats. Most audiophiles would cringe at the thought of seeing a band live from the front row. Here, the sound is typically muddy, boomy and lacks the full spectrum – not the case at a Dream Theater show. DT gives its front row fans the benefit of full-spectrum, structured sound via dedicated speakers.

So, here are a select few shots from 300-plus from the front row of DT’s August ’09 show in Wallingford, CT. This night, no special equipment, just an iPhone. Enjoy.
