It's always a really big spectacle with them, because they're huge. If you're a DM fan, you owe it to yourself to go at least once.

You lucky boy!

(Actually I think you may have seen Isis and Gifts, and maybe Trees, but I wasn't sure so they went into the list for effect...)
Fuck you, so I've only seen Isis and Russian Circles from that list, but I have seen a lot of shows of that kind, and Explosions would probably be totally transcendent.

Well as of this point, Tobi says he doesn't plan to do another Avantasia tour, and I've pretty much been told that if it that happens, it's NOT coming to America. Maybe Canada, in which case I'd make the trip, but US visa policies make it pretty much impossible for them to ever tour here unless they basically scale it back to be just the backing band and Tobias Sammet, in which case... not nearly as exciting.

And I saw Over the Rainbow last summer.

Also, I'm pretty happy to say I've seen a whole bunch of bands people in this thread have mentioned - I'm thinking about creating a parallel thread: "Top Ten Bands You're Most Happy/Proud You've Seen.

Also, I find it hilarious that someone wants to see Into Eternity. I don't like them at all but have seen them live six times. I think I have seen them collectively play almost 3 hours of music.

Yes! Do it! I was thinking the same thing. Oh and I have seen Into Eternity and Warbringer both more times than I can count or care to.

I would go to Canada, so I'm keeping this on my list.

As for you already seeing Over the Rainbow, I'm super jealous!

Dying Fetus was really good if you're a fan of theirs. I saw Ensiferum that night as well. They are a ton of fun, and very good live. Origin was also there, although I'd seen them before. They were tits. Now with a new lead vocalist, who knows? Probably still pretty good. Carcass, again, has been explained already. You need to do that shit, son!
I've seen Arch Enemy before, which is why I added the headline portion. Saw them at Gigantour in..2006 I think. They got to play like five songs and I absolutely hate the amphitheater where they played. I don't think they've been back to Oklahoma since . Whenever Necrophagist comes within four hours of me, I'll be there. They're incredible, and even if their stage presence sucks, I know I'll have a good time. I had the chance to see Dying Fetus a few months ago on that Hatebreed tour but they were like the second opener, which is total shit. Ensiferum is catchy as shit. I recently found out they were at The Marquee in Tulsa not too long ago . I've wanted to see Origin ever since my cousin brought over Antithesis and exclaimed "YOU HAVE TO HEAR THIS SHIT!" Carcass was also in Tulsa not too long ago, but I didn't hear about the show until afterward .

I saw Into Eternity the same day I saw Arch Enemy. I hadn't really liked their on album stuff but seeing them live was great, even though they got an extremely short set. I've wanted to see them headline ever since and I think they've only been in Oklahoma once since Gigantour, and I didn't feel like driving all the way to OKC to see them with a bunch of awful openers.

Into Eternity headlining and Kalmah would be sweet too. COB, Arch Enemy, Unearth, Eluveitie, Austrian Death Machine, Dark Tranquillity, and Ensiferum sets are all a lot of fun, especially COB and Unearth.
One of my friends downloads new music all the time and when he found Mors Principium Est he immediately had another friend and I drive over to hear it. I can't get enough of them. It really sucks that a ton of bands I want to see hardly EVER leave Europe. I've seen Children Of Bodom but it was when Alexi had recently broken his shoulder and he messed up a few times on his solos, wasn't moving around much at all, and you could obviously tell he was in pain. Their set was also way too short. Same thing with Dark Tranquillity. Saw them open for bands not as good as them and played a small set.
