    I would've gone to see him in December when he passed through New York, but I had to sit shiva for my grandpa. And I had the tickets also, but I sold 'em to my friend, since I knew I couldn't go.
    But exactly how much new stuff does he pack into his setlist exacty? Because that could help me decide if it was even worth buying the tickets in the first place. But aa long as he played I'll See The Light Tonight, I would've been happy.

    I'll give you ONE guess. :p

    also:

    Lordi - The Arockalypse
    Edguy - Rocket Ride is just amazing!
    Evergrey - MMA
    Queensryche - O:M II
    Devin Townsend - Synchestra
    and the new DragonForce is growing on me.

    And looking forward to the new:

    Blind Guardian
    Weird Al Yankovic
    Circus Maximus

    And hopefully a new Symphony X someday. :erk:

    When I saw him in Philadelphia on Nov. 29th the setlist was...

    Rising Force
    Locked and Loaded
    Star Spangled Banner
    Revolution
    Adagio
    Far Beyond the Sun
    Demon Driver
    Dreaming
    Masquerade
    Baroque and Roll
    Rise Up
    Exile
    Never Die
    Trilogy Suite/Krakatau/Red House
    Fugue
    You Don't Remember, I'll Never Forget
    Black Star
    I'll See the Light Tonight

    So only three songs from the new album. He played more from the new album when I saw him in Allentown in May, but I thought the show in Philadelphia was better.

    that is pretty similar to what he did at mine if not it is identical. I should have made a list on a paper. But i was right up front. I even got to yank on his whammy bar when he stuck his guitar out. Just so much energy. It was at a pretty small club (well, small for yngwie standards) and he had the marshall wall on. My ears were ringing for 2/12 days after it.

    lol, actually last time he was here he was supposed to play at sound advice ampitheater which is huge (ozzfest even gets held there, although ozzfest is a fucking joke). But a god damn hurricane came though.

    Both places I saw him at only had the capacity to fit about 300 people, but it's not bad because it's the same size venues Vai and DragonForce played.

    The best releases I've heard this year so far would be:

    Communic - Waves of Visual Decay
    Persuader - When Eden Burns
    Rage - Speak of the Dead
    Ensiferum - Dragonheads
    Dark Empire - Distant Tides

    As for shows, I'm hoping that Agalloch will make it to my neck of the woods.

    I actually dont mind her as much as the rap guys.

    One thing she did that i thought was pretty cool is, she designed a dimebag tribute guitar. Well its paint job anyways. But still, pretty cool.
