Sucks that Strato phoned it in, but now that I think of it, they seemed to be really pleased with the crowd reaction in NYC and it often seemed that they were going the extra mile and rockin' harder because they saw how crazy the audience was going. They should have still tried to put on a good show for a less crowded or enthusiastic audience, but I guess I can understand it was probably hard for them.
At least Pagan's Mind delivered the asskicking.
I can't wait 'till they get their own headline tour.
edit: Unrelated question, but what's the Gramercy theater like? I'm going to see a show their tomorrow and I'm curious about the environment since I've never been there before. It can't be that bad if the Primal Fear show was as awesome as you described.
