Perhaps the best show I've ever seen. Sound was fantastic, performance was the highest energy DT show I've ever seen, including Score. Crowd was SO into it. Score was great, but seated, something about a thousand plus fanatical DT fans standing and singing together that really just brought out amazing energy all night.
Repentance was played for the first time ever tonight, and included Mikael from Opeth on most of the vocals. Funny thing happened tho, first time up the mic they brought up for him wasn't on, crowd was getting pissed, but he and DT had no clue, till near the end of his part when a tech ran out and fixed it. He literally got 3 words in after the fix and started walking off stage. Portnoy quickly signaled to him as the band flawlessly and effortlessly went back to the beginning of his part and he did the whole thing, awesome!
I just can't begin to say how fucking great this show was, fucking fantastic special shows back to back.
