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.
I'm not a big fan of Along for the Ride either. However, I expected it to played in light of the name of the tour. Surrender to Reason would have been a good substitute. I also may be one of the only people that is not a big fan of Illumination Theory.
