    i'm in withdrawal, i haven't seen any since september, when i saw three in the same week: Megadeth, Sonata Arctica/The Agonist, and Heaven and Hell/Alice Cooper/Queensryche....


    luckily i have Behemoth coming up this Sunday.... don't really care for them too much, but for $15, how can you say no?

    Unfortunately, my last concert was The Flower Kings in Pittsburgh last October (2006). I will hopefully be catching Dream Theater and Opeth on the Progressive Nation tour next year.:headbang:

    The last big gig I saw was Dream Theater + Symphony X in Madrid, third time I see them (D.T.) live and maybe the best of all.

    If you live in the United States, I think you should take into account the Progressive Nation Tour of Dream Theater, in this chance they will be touring with Opeth, Three, and Between The Buried And Me. I hope to see them when I go to live in Florida, next month. Also happens with Symphony X, they have new dates in their Myspace profile, I'll see them on April 2008. Take a look to the Cynic Reunion Myspace, I heard they will tour soon in the USA, that would be fantastic. :)

    well... the US, in addition to the dream theater/opeth/3/between the buried and me, also has symphony x/epica/into eternity in the spring.

    too bad buffalo isn't a bigger market for metal. i always have to drive two hours to toronto or three to cleveland to see the good shows.

    I saw Opeth a couple of weeks ago, that was fantastic! In February we've got the '5 Peace Band' (Corea/McLaughlin/Garrett/McBride/Coliuta) coming that will be incredible!

    i was surprised they came to buffalo! there were only like 20 - 25 people there, and i was shocked that there were that many, but i guess the local bands on the bill brought them. they only played about eight tunes, and they opened for intronaut (also amazing, not quite technical, but i met a few and they were really cool). but arctopus can pull it off live.

    i also learned from that show that i need to get me a warr guitar. :headbang:

    well the cynic set was superb albeit short. they played about a half-hour here as well. but they were tight. sounded incredible. would definitely love to see them in a headlining set though.

    let's see.... what's next on my itinerary:

    Yes with Asia

    ooh.... and Kings X with Porcupine Tree will be EXCELLENT. i've seen porcupine tree twice already, and i'm dying to catch Kings X live. that will most likely be THE show of the summer for me this year.
