Dream Theater Blows Minds in Reno …


As the baby boomers get older and music has changed so much throughout the years, most of us are finding ways to hold on to those memories by staying loyal to bands that still stand the test of time … Dream Theater is one of those bands, and trust me, there aren’t many!

With 14 albums under their belt and countless tours spanning their years of magical greatness, it’s to no surprise that they continue to deliver performances suited for mastery in musicianship and wowing their fans. The 2019 Distance Over Time tour was the perfect example.

Act 1 started with their newly Untethered Angel and quickly established Dream Theater’s continued stance within the music industry as one of the top bands in their genre. Moving into A Nightmare to Remember and Fall Into the Light , then eventually Pale Blue Dot to end.

Act II began with a backing track (Metropolis, Part 2: Scenes From a Memory) and Regression was induced to crowd cheers. The familiarity fell true throughout the set with tracks such as Home and The Spirit Carries On bringing back memories of what DT is known for … and finally ending it with an encore At Wit’s End.

To wrap this up Dream Theater still possesses and controls the mind and definitely transports you into a journey that is sure to satisfy. I left feeling like I’ve been in Dejavu¬†and seems to spark my memory of a place I have already been to … and came back like an amazing vacation!! Truly a concert not to be missed.¬†
