Great, great set and a very happy band :) I wonder if the second verse in TTT was removed for Jamesī sake, he sings quite high there.. Nice gig!

Well this'll explain the lack of I&W and Awake material on this tour if James voice can't supposedly "handle" the demands of singing those songs which i've been suspectiong for awhile. The second verse is the best part of TTT so if you're not gonna do it than why bother playing it? Do something off the album that James may be able to handle better. Or just have James sing the song at as high of a range as he can. I understand if he can't duplicate how it was done on the record but don't just cut the verse and give up on it.

He still does Pull Me Under and Metropolis. They did it all during the festival season. These Prog Nation sets are for the dedicated fans. They play their more famous material usually during longer or festival sets for people who haven't heard them before. This is the umpteenth time they play Copenhagen so odds are lots of the attendance has heard those Images songs a fair amount of times.
