Awesome show. The band was really tight for 1st night on US tour after a several week layoff.

Band was super down to earth at meet and greet. Actually talked to people and signed everything. Please support this amazing band. Opening bands were solid. I believe Halcyon Way is the only one joining them the whole tour. I enjoyed them.

I believe Wish was the only new song in the setlist but with such an awesome set why change it much.

Met a bunch of people who.drove 7 or 8 hours. Show was worth the drive without a doubt!!

I'm pretty sure that they didn't play Wish.

Did you buy the VIP ticket? I'm considering it for the NYC show but I don't want it to end up like they usually do - the band allows you to take one quick picture, get one thing signed, and then basically pushes you to leave.

Beyond pumped to finally get to see them live.

Es you may right. I was pretty hammered and got the setlist but after sobering up today I don't remember them playing Wish either.

The meet and greet was far better than most. We walked up and talked to.each band member individually and had them sign stuff, take pictures and chat about their other bands and anything we felt like. They let us in at 420 pm and we hung out for probably 20 or 30 minutes with the band and then watched an extended sound check. Very much worth the.money as many meet and greets cost double or triple the $50 and you just get a canned group photo

Down to the wire. :drool:

Fantastic set list. Playing my two favorites off the new album.

Can't wait to see them for the 4th time in December.

I understand that Alder probably can't handle it very well anymore, but still sad to not at least see Quietus or Nothing Left to Say. But other then that, excellent set. I'm beyond stoked for this as well.

Ray's voice sounds very good but he did not seek to hit the super high notes last night. Still amazing vocals today after years of vocal abuse

Wow, I didn't realize that Wish was actually on the printed set list. I love that song and it would have been very cool to see it played live. Thanks for posting the picture.

Es I totally agree.

There is really nothing in their entire catalogue since No Exit that I would not be excited to hear (or the John Arch era for that matter)
