Opeth -- Boston, MA -- April 5th, 2012

Ghost was up first, and they sounded great. Seemed like only a few people in the crowd knew who they were before hand. However they got a pretty decent crowd response. For stage set up they had the three "satanic stained glass" backdrops.
Ghost:
Con Clavi Con Dio
Elizabeth
Prime Mover
Death Knell
Satan Prayer
Ritual

Up next was Mastodon. They had some slight technical problems, most notably when they had to restart Crack the Skye due to Brent's guitar going out. Otherwise they sounded spot on. I loved hearing most of the Hunter songs played live, and most of the crowd seemed into it as well. I only heard a couple complaints that they played "too much new stuff":
Black Tongue
Hand Of Stone
Crystal Skull
Capillarian Crest
Dry Bone Valley
Thickening
Octopus Has No Friends
Blasteroid
Stargasm
The Hunter
Crack The Skye
All The Heavy Lifting
Spectrelight
Curl Of The Burl
Bedazzled Fingernails
Aqua Dementia
Blood And Thunder
Creature Lives

After Mastodon a few people cleared out near me, however looking around the theater everyone was sticking around for Opeth. They got the best crowd response of the night, with an Opeth chant when the lights went down. Opeth were great. Mikael's stage banter was great as always, including asking the audience if the band Boston was from Boston, and saying how Sweden won because they have ABBA. I was pleased with the Opeth setlist, I forgot how amazing Deliverance is to end a set with:
The Devil's Orchard
I Feel The Dark
Windowpane
Slither
Burden
The Lines In My Hand
Folklore
The Grand Conjuration
Deliverance

Ghost:9/10
Mastodon:9.5/10
Opeth:9.5/10
