Dream Theater
Docks Club, Hamburg, Germany

October 2, 2005

Dream Theater is touring under the motto "An Evening With Dream Theater", and this evening could more properly be described as: "An Evening with Dream Theater in the sauna", because the Docks Club in Hamburg was PACKED. It was hot and moist... the temperature was high, the band in a excellent playing mood and the crowd loved it.

And when Dream Theater says an evening with, then they mean business... close to 3 hours of intense music. Starting off the set with 2 songs from their latest album "Octavarium" before the real treat began... playing a song from each of their albums, starting with an old Majesty song! WHAT! Yeah they played a song from the days before Dream Theater.

After a 15 minutes interval they came back and played their asses off... not a single song or note left anything to be desired for... one highlight after another came straight at you! James LaBrie, who I think didn't do so well before the break surely picked up pace and sang very well. "As I Am" and "Pull Me Under" was the perfect conclusion to this, once more, excellent live experience with Dream Theater.

They never lets me down, they are not only brilliant musicians, but also great entertainers, who gives the spectators something for the money every single time...!
