Taper/Bootleger Notes: 2nd Row, 15 feet from stage.

This was an awesome show. Dream Theater played a great set of almost instrumental music. The set was a bit more than an hour long, which was very nice. Not too often to you get a great opening act, and then on top of it, let them play a decent set. Yes took the stage a little after 7:30, and I looked around and noticed that there still were not too many people in the crowd, which was quite sad. These guys played a solid 2 hour + set and I loved every minute of it. I would like to thank the spastic moron dancing in the aisle to the right of us. I hope he drops dead of a drug overdose. We spent most of the concert hoping he wouldn't whack into us. Then at some point, he thought he was at a Phish concert and starting blowing up balloons to pass through the crowd. Anyway, other than that, it was an incredible show.

The Recording: It was quite windy out, so I kept my mics way back in my collar, fearful of wind noise. When I got home to listen, it still sounded fine, much to my relief. This recording came out awesome. I cant really find much wrong with it. They Yes set sounds incredible IMHO. Only thing I would have liked is for the super clapper sitting next to us to have not been there.
