    Just wondering if anyone has heard anything about Symphony X touring again later in the year? When I saw them in the UK, in March, Russell said they would hopefully be back in "fall". I'm keeping fingers and toes crossed that there is some truth in this!!!

    Russell said the same thing during the U.S. show I attended. It would make sense for them to do a
    full tour for Iconoclast. Then they could play a longer set. I would love for them to have maybe
    Circus Maximus and/or Seventh Wonder open for them. Anyone have any other "dream lineups".
    I'd also love to see Vanden Plas with them.

    I'm pretty sure they'll be going on a fall US tour then will probably go to Europe in winter or spring then some festivals in the summer of 2012 and a Japanese tour then maybe another 4 year hiatus?

    Circus Maximus, and To-Mera would be a killer lineup. I hope they get a better lineup than the last US tour, not their fault since Nevermore and Soilwork had to cancel.

    I also think Vanden Plas would be a killer opener, they as well as Adagio , although Adagio may be too dark.

    Agree about Adagio, would be a great opener. I think their tone would be a great contrast.

    I'd love to see them play with Seventh Wonder or Adagio, or even Circus Maximus to a smaller extent. The problem with that? These bands are all in the same sub-genre, and this would draw in a smaller amount of people. That's why you had a progressive metal band, a comedy/video game cover band, a thrash band (until they thankfully cancelled), and a death metal band on this last tour - to draw in a more diverse crowd.
