    John Macaluso is a world-class drummer. Anyone who doubts it should listen to the MCM live album. I'm sure he'll do great.

    They already did an album without Martin Orford - Frequency.

    Maybe you don't know that keyboard parts in frequency were already written by Martin,so he left the band very angry because there are no credits of him in Frequency.Anyway,let's hope they can do a record in IQ style also without him,meanwhile I suggest you to listen Big big train' "English electric part 2" or
    Steven wilson's "the raven that refused to sing"

    I've never heard of the guy, but it should be interesting. I guess it depends on their set, which I'm hoping contains some older classics mixed in with the underwhelming Iconoclast stuff.

    Hopefully we'll get some videos.

    I didn't know that, no. I have great respect for Martin Orford and IQ as a whole, so it's unfortunate if he parted on poor terms.

    I'm hoping so too, but I doubt it. I did a quick search of their tour history, and their first stop on the 11th, Buenos Aires, they were at last at in mid-2011, back when they were playing mostly PL stuff with End of Innocence and Dehumanized as a preview of the then forthcoming album. So technically speaking, I suppose they haven't yet experienced the most recent set, with the first half of the whole show completely from IC, meaning it might not be any different. The Brazil and Chile shows are the same deal.

    That said, according to their FB page, they are about to release some news concerning a summer European tour today, so perhaps there's a chance these 3 shows could be sort of a warm-up for them to put together a new set for that tour.

    That actually looks worse to me. It's the same setlist as always except they dropped a couple Iconoclast songs and "The Odyssey" and then replaced them with the most overplayed older songs in the catalog ("Smoke and Mirrors", "Evolution", and "Inferno")

    True enough, but I'd rather have a setlist comprised of only the most popular songs from each album than just IC and PL. Just gives it more variety. I do think Children of a Faceless God should also hit the road, along with Eve of Seduction, and replace them with some other old stuff.

    They were amazing two albums ago. Now, not as much.

    Serpent's Kiss was the kiss of death. And they are still playing it. I won't be seeing them anytime soon.
