Ok - Long story short, we were not permitted to play.
What happened was, in almost every city there were guest bands and musicians lined up to play. Once their management heard of this, they feared it could impact the show and cause coordination issues. It was a bummer but in the end I do understand. I talked to Zak, and we'll see about trying to do something next time they come around.
It sounds like they are coming back around in June again.
They played a ton of Savatage stuff including:
Edge of Thorns
He Carves His Stone
Alone You Breathe
If I Go Away
Complaint in the System
