This was another show where I had never seen any of the bands before, so I was looking forward to seeing all 3 bands. I never had the chance to see Savatage either so I was very excited to finally get to hear some of their material live. Before the tour started I was not sure how much Savatage they would play. As it turned out my worries were unfounded and I was extremely happy with the number of Savatage songs that were played.

Unfortunately, the attendance was pathetic, which was sad to see. I arrived at the venue at 5:00pm and stood in line for over half an hour by myself before anyone else even showed up to get in line! Manticora came out and kind of looked at each other like :eyes:. Zak seemed to be into the show and treated the small crowd as if it were much larger than it was. Jon mostly joked around about it and complimented us for being "loud for such a small crowd" etc. He seemed to really enjoy the show.

Manticora was very good, although maybe not well-suited for this tour. They would probably be a better fit on the Gamma Ray/Helloween tour. But I enjoyed their set and will probably buy some of their CD's.

I was not as disappointed with the CIIC set list as some have been. I really like their new CD and I love the fact that they played Echoes. It was a great set and Andy Lee was outstanding. That guy can tear it up! I had heard that he was an amazing guitarist and I totally agree. I met him after the show and he gave me a pick, which was cool. Highlights were Echoes, Turns To Me and Taunting Cobras.

I was not sure how well the new JOP songs would sound live, but I thought they sounded great. Jon’s voice sounded good and he really belted it out all night long. He didn’t hold back at all. I thought that Matt LaPorte did an excellent job on Criss Oliva’s solo’s, etc. I was extremely disappointed that they skipped All That I Bleed, but the show was awesome regardless. All of the Savatage material was simply amazing. I still can't believe that I finally got to hear those songs live. Highlights for me were Gutter Ballet, Edge Of Thorns, When The Crowds Are Gone and, of course, Somewhere In Time/Believe.
