Actually, no. I think they could've played something better off the new album besides The Looking Glass and Along for the Ride. (I would've chosen Behind the Veil and Surrender to Reason). Trial of Tears has never been one of my favorites. While I like both On the Backs of Angels and Breaking All Illusions, they were played last tour, they could've used a rest. I think it is cool that they are playing The Shattered Fortress, was one of the highlights for me from that album but I would rather hear something like The Glass Prison (if they were going to stick with something from Portnoy's suites).
Now, the rest of the set, holy fuck. The second half of Awake? And to hear those four songs from Scenes from a Memory? That to me is worth the price of admission alone.
