    I don't know why they've seemed to ignore the hell out of "Wicked" when they play Odyssey material live. That song absolutely SLAYS live and has way more of a groove than "King Of Terrors".

    Oh well, I missed them at the Nokia; so I will be at the Jersey show tomorrow nite.

    That setlist looks right except add in that they actually opened with Eve of Seduction. Killer show. They never cease to amaze.

    Glad to see these two songs are getting some love. King of Terrors is great live.

    Well, I have nothing else to do, which is cool. I mean I have a TON of actually hard work to do for once on Sunday morning, but fuck it.

    BUT, PA's getting a ton of snow right now, at least the western half. So right now the only factor is, "Am I going to be driving 6 hours both ways in a snowstorm?"

    yep you are right with the snow and wow i forgot about the 6 hours part which is a tough decision. however i did check the weather and it says it is not going to snow saturday night... it just says party cloudy. I am sure there will be tickets available the night of the show so i guess you can make a last minute decision which will have to be like 12 PM on saturday :) i mean good luck though. if u r going with another person, i think it is worth it

    Went there last night. Awesome show, awesome venue. Sound was very good, I could hear everything. A little lacking in overall low end beefiness. Also Jason Rullo was clearly not on his game. Tempo especially all over the place. Most songs were slow, many fills rushed. He was playing accurately, and playing some great stuff, but tempos definitely were the only downfall of the night, and that might just be me nitpicking. Everyone was on their game otherwise, and Russ was hilarious. "I... LIKE you...."

    I don't post here often except to check what's going on during the tour, but I loved last night's show. Absolutely the best time I've seen them on this tour and the new songs in the setlist (and new order) were a welcome change.

    That whole bit with Russell and the "I like you...but I love you and you and you and you" and everything was really funny. The whole night was great although I do agree with you that Jason was just messing up all over the place. It wasn't terribly sloppy (hey I couldn't do better, that's some relentless drumming in that set!) but still, a lot of slower tempos and botched fills...I think at one point I saw him drop like 3 or 4 sticks in a row mid groove or whatever you want to call it...oh well, everyone else was on top of it and Russell was really funny with his little bit of improv at the end of Revelation.

    I was the brown-haired girl with the gray sweatshirt near the front of the VIP line with her mom... :)

    I just read your review -- good stuff! I agree with you, being up front and able to get lost in the energy is one of the best feelings in the world. I saw Hypersolid last month when they opened for Kamelot -- they had a different vocalist, and I think I liked the one from last night's show a bit better. The moshing during some parts of the show was slightly annoying, but the music itself was totally worth it.

    I believe this was the setlist for the Philly show. I might be missing a song but overall it was a pretty good show. Jason Rulio was kind of rusty at times especially domination but overall this was great! My only real complaint is that the set was kind of short and there were 3 opening bands which took a lot of time. Russell Allen is one funny guy!

    Intro
    Set The World on Fire

    I really don't like it when there's a bunch of opening bands that detract from Symphony X's set time. Even if the opening bands are good (which they rarely are), I'd still rather hear more from Symphony X. I say one opening band maximum, and two if absolutely necessary, but three is overkill.
