Amazing show. Special appearance by Kenny G was particularly interesting. It appeared he was there with his son and some friends and had gotten them pit tickets and back stage passes. Seemed like a pretty cool dude and dad. He brushed off some of the crowd chants with a smile and seemed very down to earth for a guy who has sold 75 million records.

Here he is giving us the metal horns. This picture is a classic.

I saved up and flew from Chicago just for this show as Opeth skipped Chicago this time. Please don't do this again Opeth. We really appreciated being included in the Evening with Opeth a few years ago along with L.A. and New York.

I decided to spring for VIP tickets and they were well worth it. Got to meet and take pictures with each band member and I was given a personalized L.A. Evolution XX T-shirt and an already signed version of the Legacy Issue of Blackwater Park. They also gave us a really cool Evolution XX tour program with a band history and lots of pictures. This is a very nice souvenir of the evening.

It was an incredible experience and one of the best concerts I've ever had the pleasure of seeing. Thanks Opeth!!
