Dream Theater
Live Scenes From New York
The Story
"Live Scenes From New York" is a great way to experience the music of Dream Theater for the first time. Recorded live at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City on one evening (August 30, 2000), the package offers 3 full CDs (hours o' fun) just bursting at the seams with superb progressive rock and the amazing fingers of guitarist John Petrucci. As good as Petrucci is, you've got the powerhouse drumming of Mike Portnoy, unbelivable bass work from John Myung, and simply astonishing keyboards courtesy of Jordan Rudess. "Live Scenes From New York" also features over an hour of previously unreleased live music plus an enhanced CD containing video footage you can't get anywhere else. Even a Liquid Tension Experiment song is included - "Acid Rain".
