    That really does boggle my mind. I've never seen sound problems so ludicrous as with Into Eternity in Mokena. Huh. My condolences for the guys.

    It was really good show, though I felt it was interrupted a many times by moshers, and three girls who kept getting on stage and forcing their way through the crowd :mad:

    The sound was decent, though for all three bands I felt the vocals were not turned up enough.

    Revelation/Divine Wings was definitely the highlight. The girls pretty much ruined Through the Looking Glass, as good as it was. blah. Masquerade was freaking awesome live!

    It's a shame that Simone Simmons was not there for Epica, I didn't know she was out for the tour :cry:

    anyway:

    im like praying for Looking Glass in Phoenix. knowing my luck ill get Egypt (no offense its an amazing song but has nothing on TTLG). Lets hope they play Ashes too. that would be awesome to hear. aww... they put sea of lies back in the set. :cry: i totally want to hear Walls of Babylon again. was a definite highlight of the 2007 show.

    holy smokes.....I just realized that they played Walls of Babylon at the Portland show, but it wasn't on the setlist. I think it was before Revelation. Who can confirm? I was rather annoyed with some of the people there, and lost track of the songs that were getting played :mad:

    PORTLAND SHOW!


    [​IMG]


    feel free to SUCK MAH BALLZ. '

    so symphony x is my favorite band. and it started at 9 (on thurs) and i got there at fuckin 4. i was eating at this mexican place right next door to the venue and i could see the buses and shit hoping to see any members. i saw michael come out. and i was like shit!!!! i ran out, and i was like "michael! you got a sec?" and i asked him about his old esp mIIs, apprently he got them in japan. then we talked about his caparison. then we moved onto engl. he uses the fireball and the powerball live now. he said fuck the vetta :rollin
    he was so easy to talk to. greatest moment of my life haha. he said he had to call his family so i went to go wait out in front by the doors.

    so i wait for a million hours and talk to some peeps, then my friends nicky (guy) and natalie(girl) came. and we went in. i was first in, got an odyssey shirt and got right in front in the left where i knew michael would be.

    into eternity was awesome. epica was lame.

    so symphony x came on...

    set list:

    set the world on fire
    domination
    serpents kiss
    masquerade
    paradis lost
    looking glass
    inferno
    smoke and mirrors
    IT SAID SEA OF LIES BUT THEY FUCKING SKIPPED IT
    Revation/divine wings of tragedy (only like 3 minutes of DWOT :( )

    the "encore" (which was on the set list)

    eve of seduction
    of sins and shadows



    fucking amazing playing. i got tons of vids of him doing all the solos. i fucking scored one of his picks and the set list. there were these three girls that went up and were like all humpin on russell and they were really annoying they were up there so long. i looked to michael and i shrugged and said "what the fuck?" and he stopped playing and started laughing and he was like "yeah what the fuck is he doing?". there was a lot of interaction between him and i (sounds gay but...)

    afterwards i waited and i met the bassist, mike lepond. he was really tight and he was telling me about how he played with ross the boss from manowar, who was one of his idols. he signed my odyssey cd book thing. then michael came out again, i was honestly the only one actually TALKING to him. i asked him about his pedalboard, which i thought was custom but it turns out its a TC G-system. which was fuckin awesome. but its so expensive :rollin he said he liked the g-major but he wanted that in pedal form so he got the g-system. i told him how much i learned from his the guitar chapter and he said he wants to do another instructional vid. he said he was getting cold and he signed my odyssey thing and that was that :)


    best night of my life.

    They're rotating their setlist. Some nights they play it, and some nights they don't.

    jax maybe you can tell me I got the set-list in SF but it had babylon and egypt on there but then they played the other set-list?

    I was right in front of lepond the whole time I think I saw you but I'm not sure where were you?

    they played babylon instead of sea of lies at the portland show. for me as a huge guitarist i'd rather see sea of lies, but no worries. but 7/10 songs they played from PL...c'mon a little overkill
