The Lincoln Theatre is a nice venue right in downtown Raleigh. There's easy parking, there are several tiers inside for easy viewing, and the sound is generally good.

I wasn't sure what to expect at this show. There were perhaps 75 people there, and I think Jon was happy with that as he knew only

diehards would come out on a Sunday night for a show like this. Jon proclaimed that this tour was his "vacation" after weeks of

TSO rehearsals. He said he was going to have fun, and he surely did.

The band was stripped down, just Jon, Chris Kinder on drums and Jason Jennings (?) on bass. Jon mostly played piano and keyboards, though he did play guitar on 5-6 songs. There were some backing tracks here and there.

Before each song Jon would tell a story or reminisce about Criss or Matt Laporte or talk about how a song came to be. His stories were hilarious - the crowd was laughing all night. He would occasionally exchange some banter with audience members.

If you're a Savatage fan, I think you'll enjoy the show. If you are a casual fan, it will be hit or miss for you as it was alot of the piano heavy tunes.

I got a copy of the setlist off the soundboard, so it is generally accurate, but I might have spaced out on one of the Savatage medley songs (they weren't listed - it just said "Medely" [sic]). I will update if I learn I was mistaken.

That's odd, Chance is on Handful Of Rain yet it's in the Edge Of Thorns medley

OK, there's a goof. I moved Chance to the HoR medley and added All That I Bleed to the EoT medley.

Sorry for the inaccuracy - I'll try to get it fixed.

My favorite song of all time.

And I wasn't aware that he was still involved with TSO in a capacity that would require him to rehearse. I mean...he doesn't tour with them, so what would he need to rehearse for?

He didn't talk about why he had to rehearse. In fact, he didn't talk about TSO at all; I wish he would have at least touched on it. He related a few small Paul O'Neil stories but that was about it.

Can't wait to see this on Wednesday night in NJ. Venue is definitely not a very good choice for an event like this, but nevertheless seeing Jon is always great.

Maiden33 please post the setlist from your show tonight if it differs from this one.

Going on Sunday in Chicago/Joliet and want to see how much he is changing so that each show is "different"

Thanks!!
