I read an interview where Kai said that the songs he's sick of playing are Land of The Free and Valley, so I'm not surprised to see those two gone. I'd say put Lust for Life as the main set ender, and put Beyond The Black Hole between I Want Out and SMAS.

The only song they didn't play that the set NEEDS is Somewhere Out in Space, but naturally there's many I'd love to have seen, both some relative "staples" and some rarer songs. The show has proved to me for the umpteenth time that even sets that look "bad" on paper kick serious ass live.

Highlights: Rebellion in Dreamland, Abyss of the Void, Armageddon, Ride the Sky. Man on a Mission was really cool.

The band was kinda sloppy (mix was kinda iffy) for the fist couple of songs, but by the time they hit "Fight" things started getting really excellent and up to the typical standard of their live performances. The band was battling a lot of technical issues as well (show was delayed about 20 minutes), but that's what happens when the band (seriously) got to the venue 30 minutes before doors, and thus did no pre-show sound/line check.

That's what happens when your flight gets delayed from FL... the show was very close to be cancelled. Kai said they had a helluva time getting to the venue via plane and van from the airport.

They had no choice. The 70,000 tons of Metal cruise docked on the morning of the show, then they had to fly to NYC, and take a taxi from JFK to the venue. They planned to get there a lot earlier than they did, but traffic and flight delays left them with no choice. My hat is off to the band for still putting on a fantastic show under the circumstances.
