Dream Theater: Live at Budokan 2004


Live at Budokan is a live recording released by progressive metal band Dream Theater in 2004, available on either 3 CDs, 2 DVDs, or 1 Blu-ray Disc. It was recorded at the legendary Nippon Budokan Hall on April 26, 2004 in Tokyo, Japan. Due to time constraints, the songs "The Great Debate", "Under a Glass Moon" and "Caught in a Web", which included an extended drum solo, were removed from the setlist at the last minute. On the DVD, during the credits, the song "Vacant" is played in the background, without LaBrie's vocals. During the first few minutes of the live concert Jordan Rudess had an equipment malfunction that played either the incorrect sound, no sound at all, or random notes.
