I gotta say, this was a really fun show. I'm kinda disappointed we didn't get Heart Of A Dragon, but Soldiers is a great song and also one of my favs from them. I was up on the security rail the entire time they were on so I had a great view of all their onstage antics. Sam Totman was constantly making fun of Herman Li, yawning and doing the jerkoff motion with his hands during his solos. ZP was looking kinda ridiculous, he had a really small shirt on and eyeliner. The bassist was a real cool guy, always interacting with the crowd. They keyboardist was in his own world, always jumping up and down and doing all kinds of crazy shit. At the end ZP brought a little kid on stage. It was pretty cool.

High points:
- getting a pick from Fred the bassist, and a setlist later
- locking eyes with ZP during "Operation..." and singing along with him
- high-fiving Herman
- the guitar/keyboard solos, which are usually boring were very nice. For some reason it was Fred doing the guitar solo, not Sam or Herman
- Calling out ZP on his lame facial hair
Me: What's with the goatee? You didn't have that last time!
ZP: I got lazy, man
Me: *thumbs down*
ZP: *middle finger*
- Cynic were very awesome, but I'm not familiar with their stuff so I didn't get a setlist
- Daath were good, but I didn't recognize any of their songs

Low Points:
- The sound was not that great. There were a lot of time when the guitar was just completely lost in the mix. During Cynic everything was too loud until the last two songs, then they sounded much better
-The crowd during Cynic was terrible. There were a bunch of jerks that kept booing and yelling "Freebird" during their set. They were also shouting "Get the fuck off the stage, bring on Dragonforce!", which prompted all the Cynic fans to turn around and scream "Dragonforce sucks!"

Overall it was a great show and I can't wait for them to return, hopefully with a new album soon.

Never seen them so can't agree or disagree .. their tour with Meshuggah must have been so much better than this. I missed that one too.

WTF is Cynic going so down as to play or open for Dragonforce, man, very disappointing.

Cynic are the masters, and maybe teachers for a lot of musicians so maybe in recognition of that Dragonforce invited them.

You do realize it's the label who pretty much chooses the bands on tour, not the bands themselves right? It's just a matter of bands agreeing to go on tour -_-
