Sorry for such a late response, Jakalou!
The show was amazing! I'm not sure what kind of venue the October 25th show will be in, but the Nokia Theater has assigned seating. Therefore, nothing got out of hand or crazy or mosh pit-ish (that could be a pro or con for you). Because Trivium was the opener for Dream Theater, the audience was a bit lame when Trivium was on. I'm not even the biggest fan, but Trivium was so much more interactive with the audience than Dream Theater was (and Trivium was a lot better too...in my opinion). (: They played for about 40-45 minutes, and started right on time at 8:00 pm. So, I guess you should get there and be seated before the start time.
I honestly hope that the October 25th show has more Trivium fans and/or more fans willing to listen and give Trivium a shot. Also, I guess Dream Theater fans tend to be a bit older, so they aren't really bundles of energy, to say the least. I think that is what I was most disappointed about. Trivium was trying so hard to get everybody to stand up and get into the music, but the Dream Theater fans weren't having any of it. Lame...
Oh, and random piece of information, but their merchandise tables sold shirts for $35 (I bought one for my boyfriend). Combine that with parking, and your wallet will be very empty...
I'm not sure though. Is the October 25th show 'Dream Theater with Trivium,' or is Trivium headlining their own show? I'm sure that will affect your experience. I have pictures and video if you'd like to get a feel for it! (: Let me know. Again, sorry this was such a late response. If you have any other questions or anything I can help you with, don't hesitate to ask. (: Either way, you'll have a BLAST!!! Bring your camera and prepare your ears. Haha. (:
