If you were at the concert on 03.12.2002 and would like to meet with other Dream Theater fans than this fanclub is for YOU!

The Kansas Ytsejam is a local UN-endorsed Dream Theater fan club for people living in Kansas and the surrounding states.

Mike V. and I, Mike D., started and arranged this so that Dream Theater fans could get together and talk about our favorite band, trade bootlegs, and discuss whatever progressive rock had to offer.

If you would like to know more information about us, just send email to sacredjade@angelfire.com and I will respond as soon as I can, and you'll be notified when we hold the next meeting.

The last time the KS Ytsejam met was: July 21, 2001

We usually meet in Kansas City since it is a fairly known location.  We meet on Saturday's in the afternoon at Applebee's in Overland Park (a suburb of KC).  We also post it to all the official forums as far in advance as possible so that we can accommodate everybody's schedule!


A review by the webmaster of the Kansas City Dream Theater show...

Here's the setlist from the Kansas City Dream Theater show which kicked some major ass!

Finally Free outro (taped)
The Glass Prison
Strange Deja Vu
Through My Words
Fatal Tragedy
Under A Glass Moon
Jordan Rudess Key Solo (which led right into)
Lines In The Sand (demo version) (Jordan almost has Derek's distorted guitar lead sound nailed -- this blew me away!)
Lie w/extended jam
The Spirit Carries On
Take The Time (w/excerpt from By Tor)


Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence (w/ the taped intro that had no guitars, bass, or drums... just Jordan's track. It was great to hear what he actually plays on that and I understand now why they went with tape instead of actually attempting it. And this whole song just totally ruled!)

Hollow Years
Pull Me Under

A couple things to note about this concert...

1. During Misunderstood, one of the monitors on the end by John Myung caught on fire! Once Portnoy saw this, he grabbed his microphone (while still playing drums) and did his Beavis impression -- "Fire! Fire! Fire!" There was no stopping Portnoy from having loads of fun during the whole evening!

2. During the extended jam in Lie, Mike (once again, having fun!) was throwing one of drum sticks back and forth with one of the sound guys on the side of the stage. Crazy!

Overall, this concert kicked so much ass!!!!! Petrucci was "ON" all nite! Does this man ever loose his edge? Think not! James was amazing as well. He kept his voice and composure all nite. Myung is not just a bass god, but *THE* bass god. And at a couple points in time he actually smiled and at others he MOVED! Jordan's new rotating keyboard stand is cool and (of course) he played flawlessly throughout 99% of the nite. And last, but not least, they all looked like they were having fun. Which made my experience even better.

My one (and only!) gripe with this concert is that it was a bit loud. That's it, that's all. Other than that, the concert, venue, and crowd were amazing. And after the concert, I got to meet and get pics with LaBrie, Rudess, and Myung. For some reason, Petrucci and Portnoy were nowhere to be seen, but that's for the next leg of the tour through the US.

I'd like to say "Thank You" to the following forum members that I met at the venue and concert that made this even more enjoyable!

Barryintexas, Mashtun, Drummer, JBN1 from the Portnoy forum.
SpaceDyeJess from the LaBrie forum.
and especially KSDreamer from the dt.net forum.
And all the Houston Ytsejammers as well.


A little something for any DT fan who is awaiting a concert....:
