Opeth didn't play. This is according to setlist.fm:

Black Tongue
Hand Of Stone
Crystal Skull
Dry Bone Valley
Thickening
Octopus Has No Friends
Blasteroid
Stargasm
The Hunter
Crack The Skye
All The Heavy Lifting
Spectrelight
Curl Of The Burl
Bedazzled Fingernails
Iron Tusk
March of the Fire Ants
Blood And Thunder
Creature Lives

Not all that extended, but it was pretty short notice I guess. Still, I'd love to get some extra Mastodong in DC tomorrow.

Ol' Nessie is a fucking awesome addition, especially on a whim.

Mikael Akerfeldt was in a car accident, that's why Opeth didn't play.

A guy who was at the show said the merch guy for Opeth said that Mikael was getting off their bus, fell and hit his head. He should be OK.

Onto to Mastodon...Ol'e Nessie?????????? :drool:. So mad I didn't get that at my show. That must have been sweet.

This set is definitely not right. They played Iron Tusk and March of the Fire Ants right near the end. I am absolutely certain of that. They also played The Sparrow right before Creature Lives. And no, Ole' Nessie was not played. I would've died if I saw that song.

Yeah, setlist.fm has now been changed to say Tusk and Ants.

Gotta say I am pleasantly surprised that Mastodon extended their set. Usually big bands with big egos wouldn't give a shit about extending sets if put in a situation like this

Yeah, setlist.fm has now been changed to say Tusk and Ants.I would consider trading "Nessie" for both "Ants" and "Tusk" if I hadn't heard them play both live already. Just sayin'.

2 corrections:

It was in fact Iron Tusk and March Of The Fire Ants. Sadly not Ole Nessie

Mikael came out and said what actually happened today. He hit his head in Mastodon's bus. No broken arm, no car crashes.

What?

Ol Nessie was not played last night, Although Iron Tusk, March Of The Fire Ants, and I did forget Creature Lives, was played.

Mikael made an announcement on facebook about what happened. He will be playing tomorrow nights show. Tonight was just a traveling day anyways, so only MN got fucked out of Opeth. Probably because I couldn't make it to the show last night. :D

Unfortunately it looks like I'll be settling for the standard-length dong.:eyes:

Last night, my dad and I checked out some of Mastodon's music and absolutely loved it! So, at the last minute we decided to go to the show. WOW! Both Ghost and Mastadon were super amazing! And you were all right about Ghost. They need to be heard live to truly appreciate them. They were mind blowing!

That's too bad about Mike though. I'm just thankful it wasn't more serious and that he can continue the tour.

Yeah, for what it's worth, I have a copy of the setlist from last night, but it's the same one from other dates, doesn't have the additions on it.
Anyway, I was hanging out back afterwards and saw Mike on his bus, looked fine, but didn't come out to talk. Brann from Mastodon said something about getting his head stapled shut.

Interesting side note, I talked to one of the Ghost members out of costume (no idea which one, he claimed to have never even heard of Ghost) but I chatted with him in Swedish and he said he came from Linköping. I didn't get a pic, but he looked a lot like Katatonia's drummer. If that helps anyone figure out who he was, then good luck.

What tipped you off that he was a member of Ghost? I hear the guys are all really nice, and being a Ghost fan, I'd love to chat with them for a second, though I know they can't really acknowledge the band. *coughTobiasForgecough*

Well he came up to the fence wearing a leather jacket and asked for a light for his cig. He was obviously not a roadie, had a Swedish accent (that's when I asked him if he spoke it) and wasn't a member of Opeth.

That was Tobias Forge - or "that guy who we think/know is Papa Emeritus". Dude's from that city according to Metal Archives.

No, not Tobias Forge. Forge isn't blond. Like I said, this guy looked a lot like Katatonia's drummer Daniel Liljekvist (http://a2.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/81/8a95055878a84db3bb03a2b919258cdd/l.jpg)
