In Pictures: Dream Theater's Undeniably Epic Mumbai Performance

Posted at October 12th, 2017 | by Shivani Goel | in Entertainment, Featured, India Tour, Metal/Rock/Alternative

In case you were living under a rock and missed it, Dream Theater came to Mumbai on the 8th of October and created history for fans here. Apart from some extensive rain, thunder, and lightning (which only truly added to the experience), it was a herculean effort by Opium Events, which they pulled off pretty flawlessly. The rain was pouring down to such an extent that the concert had to be stopped a couple of times in the three hours that it ran overall, and it was a little disappointing in terms of magnitude of crowd. Such an iconic act should have seen overflowing stadiums, but I guess India has grown a bit past traditional rock acts.

A seriously epic moment was when they jammed As I Am + Metallica‘s Enter Sandman, and it was possibly the most high energy track of the show. The production, setup, and hospitality was minimal and on point, although a warm up band would have probably set the tone better than a repetitive playlist. Unfortunately due to it being a dry day, the event was alcohol free, but there seemed to be zero drug usage on the crowds which is a rare sight at music events/festivals now so that was a breath of fresh air.

Overall a pretty amazing event to attend with an act we can only dream of seeing. Check out the images below, shot by Anand Mohapatra Photography!
