First off, I need to listen to some Katatonia, they put on a great show. Not sure exactly what they played, but I know they did Chrome, Day and Then a Shade, The Longest Year, My Twin and July. No Murder though :(

Opeth came on and was flawless. The Heritage songs to me sounded much better live (and heavier) then in the studio, particularly Folklore. The acoustic part wasn't too bad (besides Throat of Winter) but I definitely feel like it slowed down the mood a lot. Also, Mikael was freaking hilarious!! I don't plan on missing another Opeth show in my area, they just blew me away with their musicianship. Highlights for me were Face of Melinda, Porcelain Heart, A Fair Judgement and Folklore.

I saw them the previous night and I actually enjoyed Katatonia's set a lot more than Opeth's. But hearing "Face of Melinda" and "A Fair Judgment" were definitely the highlights of the night. The new stuff didn't do much for me, but I thought "Folklore" was by far the best of the Heritage songs.

Katatonia was amazing. Opeth was great too. But Katatonia, I'm convinced that Night Is the New Day is one of the best albums ever. And they played 5 songs from it. :D
