I agree with you, this was a very weird show. I could possibly understand the theater being 25% empty with the show being moved from a large outdoor to a smaller theater. I think the deal with the sitting the whole time would have been different if it stayed in Chester. People around me were getting pissed at the people who were standing the whole time.
I enjoyed the longer set very much. The last time I saw DT was on the Systematic Chaos tour, and that was not as long as this one was. The new material sounded awesome. The trip to AC would have been just as long as it would have been to Chester. Sucks for all those people who live out near Reading or Lancaster, which would have been a considerably longer trip.
Still, all in all, a great show.
