Dream Theater – Live At Budokan

Dream Theater has finally gotten it right. Well, almost. After releasing a few other hit-and-miss video releases, throughout the past decade, we finally get a full length, DVD, concert video with world class production values. This DVD doesn’t suffer from the same problems as their previous videos, such as a phenomenal performance marred by a terrible production (Metropolis 2000), but ... Read More »

Rush 30th Anniversary Tour

Rush 30th Anniversary Tour August 3rd, 2004 Nissan Pavilion, Bristow, Virginia Rush may not be my favorite band in the world (top-five though), but they are most definitely my favorite band to see in concert. I have seen Rush in concert only four times, with the Grace Under Pressure, Counterparts, Vapor Trails, and 30th Anniversary tours, mostly because I was ... Read More »
