James LaBrie (doing his solo material)
Lost Horizon reunion
These 3 bands would be indeed killer.
Yes please! Along with:
And many others!
Any band with Daniel Heiman singing...
He's the only singer left on my bucket list to see live.
So that is now Harmony, with some of the guys from Darkwater That would be awesome!
Poets of the Fall, dammit. That is the ONLY Shut Up And Take My Money band left on the list.
maudlin of the Well
If I had more than three I'd definitely add in Jaded Heart, Astral Doors, 220 Volt... and a bunch more! Actually all those would be cool as I've only seen Nocturnal Rites and Threshold off your list...
I agree that LaBrie solo would be awesome.
Unisonic, IQ, Newsted, King Diamond, Blaze Bayley, Onslaught, Force of Evil, Mercyful Fate, and Tony Martin.
Opeth (playing Blackwater Park in its entirety)
I'd love to see more heavy stuff, even though I lean prog vs. power. Periphery, Animals as Leaders, and After the Burial would blow away folks - and AtB would make the Overkill pit look tame. I saw them almost show up the band I would love to see play ProgPower most - Killswitch Engage. I know, I know, they aren't very prog. and not very power. but they put on an AMAZING show - and their lyrics are the best in metalcore. period. and two of those four would get me to ProgPower as a sponsor. Seriousy, Glenn, get KSE and just take my amex card
I'm lovin' a bunch of these suggestions but many are bands I've seen (eg, Loudness, TNT, Yngwie); one I regrettably haven't and would have to add is Racer X - not
sure how realistic it would be to get those guys together for a show but they are right on that shortlist for me...
Periphery would work only for that relatively small segment open to djent. AaL has a broader appeal but Glenn doesn't generally rock instrumentals (pity though, cause Joy of Motion is fucking brilliant). AtB would be oddball of the entire 15 year run, lol.
Tesseract could potentially happen, and they have a lot of fans amongst the board at a minimum. And I would lose my shit if any of those guys got booked. I mean, like, OrbWeaver:Falconer level shit losing.
Animals As Leaders has also been touring North Anerica pretty steadily lately, so the chance to catch them locally is probably pretty good.
For some values of local only.
Seen Annihilator twice. They really need a new singer.
