    I will say two things:

    1. Fri/Sat vs. Wed/Thurs will be a reflection of the promoter tastes - balance will occur over all four days and should be judged as such.
    2. I zig when they expect me to zag. Otherwise, you repeat yourself to death and turn stale.

    Further, when you polled the peanut gallery we resoundingly told you to follow your gut.

    The only thing I expect in the announcements each year is to squeal with delight.

    I need to append my list and add Ne Obliviscaris. I originally left them off because they just finished touring the US. After seeing them in Denver, I was blown away. They were outstanding, even though their growler Xenoyr was sick and missed this show. They re-arranged the setlist to only include songs that could be done by their clean vocalist. It was AMAZING. PPUSA really needs to see their full set with both vocalists present.

    Just want to say that I have 3 of 4 of my really wanted and I couldn't be more stoked. Now if Innerwish happens to come on Day 1 or 2, man!! Stand back \m/ Great job so far guys.

    I got 50% of my predictions and hoping for 1 of those others on Wednesday or Thursday. Also, I'll settle for Portnoy and two members of Paralydium Project (In Dynazty). Excited to see the lineups for Wednesday/Thursday.

    Heck, I didn't do too bad on my expecting list. If you count GSO who just played last year as a last minute replacement, I got 5 of 7.

    But does "the entire album" mean literally the entire album? Or could Todd and Queensryche chop off some of the intros and interludes and get away with it?

    It's a risky line to tread, all the same.

    Unless Tate's lawyers are complete shitbricks - which they probably aren't - they rendered that line of thinking moot by also ensuring that Queensryche can't advertise anything resembling an Operation Mindcrime set, even if they chopped intros/interludes - and honestly, a large part of why bands do special sets is because they know it will drive ticket sales. Only the involved parties know the verbiage on that contract clause, but I think it would be a reasonably safe assumption that it's setup to avoid that sort of clever thinking.
