    The Opeth tour bus broke down.
    The Dark Tranquility tour bus broke down.
    Devil Driver started playing late ... and was delaying and playing extra songs because DT and Opeth weren't even there.
    And I can't say I'm a fan of DD's music.

    At one point DD announce that DT wouldn't even be playing!! I was enraged!

    After DD finished, you could tell they were rushing to set up the stage, and the curtains opened to reveal DT! :kickass:

    After the first song, they announced they would only be playing 3 songs total!

    They ended up getting 4 songs in ... but man it was a total shame. Both guitars ended up cutting out 3 times during those 4 songs.

    While leaving the show, I saw most of DT getting drunk at the bar, I don't blame them!

    Oh well. Hopefully they'll be stopping by again sometime soon!

    Someone else would have to answer that question. I remember them playing The New Build and closing with Lost to Apathy ... I can't reemember the other songs for the life of me. I was actually shocked to not hear The Final Resistance at least.

    Man, that's fucked up. Having to get through a dozen or more Devil Driver songs just to listen to 4 from DT, and cutted up... I'd surely had ended up killing someone.

    Did Opeth played ? Or not at all ? They didn't reach San Diego at all I guess ?

    ^ Kathleen23: there is nothing about the SD show on the Opeth forum?
    You'd think someone would write about it? Very strange?

    @plinty: i wouldn't let them actually step on my tail, so there'd be no slippering. I would rather slap them with it. :D

    they played:
    wonders at your feet
    lost to apathy
    the new build
    my negation

    sigh...a lot of mess up on sounds, but at least i'm glad i got to meet them after the show.

    My guess is that show can be "among the worst 5 shows ever in our 17-year old career" :ill: Yuk, those RVs sucked :(

    And my guess is that this tour must be "among the 3 most adventurous tours in our 17-year old career".
