July 18, Huntington, NY
It's a two night stand at the Paramount Theater here in Huntington, Long Island.
First time on the tour we've had two nights in the same place, and some musical variations are planned for the second night's show.
I guess this is a good time to show some photos I took last week - we've been rehearsing together with Dream Theater members, for two pieces that will only
be done in the second Huntington show: Liquid Tension Experiment's Paradigm Shift and King Crimson's 21st Century Schizoid Man.
Of course we didn't want to go public with that, so I've waited til now to put up these shots, from Holmdel, NJ.
Back to the present:
July 19, Huntington, NY
Back for a second show at the very nice Paramount Theater.
More rehearsals of the LTE piece for tonight...
Is it just me, or does Mike Mangini's drum kit look like a gekko?
A welcome visit from AnalogMan, whos pedals we all use
Here's the show:
Got a few shots of Dream Theater's show, before coming onstage to play ...
Doing Paradigm Shift, the Liquid Tension Experiment piece, was a blast. And a nice treat for this audience, since it's the only time on
tour we've done it.
But with all those notes, and the funk fingers on... taking photos was out of the question!
Then, after Dream Theater finished their regular set, Adrian Belew, Pat Mastelotto and I came on to join them for an encore piece:
21st Century Schizoid Man
For the next page, a treat: John Zocco, the bass tech for Dream Theater, is a very good photographer, and he's sent me some of his shots
of rehearsals and shows. Here's a page of his photos.
