Skipping us again...We treated you well on the last tour Mikael, what's the problem?
Current Listening:

Heater valve kicking on.
Snotty noses being blown.
Griping.
Maybe cookies coming out of the oven???

C is for cookie, and it is good enough for me.

Do I go even though Ghost Reveries is the last Opeth album I liked and The Hunter is kind of mediocre?

I must say I'd rather go to a show where Opeth plays their mellow set first and the night ends with a furious headbanging Mastodon set.

Everyone has said the Harvest concerts are really good if you like prog and aren't going to just headbang.

 
When I went to see Opeth on the Watershed tour, I was a little disappointed because the mellow pieces were the weakest. And they didn't play Ghost of Perdition.
 
 
If they were coming to San Looey I'd be there.

I've seen both bands before at smaller venues with much better set-lists than I'll see now. I might not be missing out on much. I will most likely end up going though.

And Dream Theater skipped us too...no one seems to care about the Lou except for Rush.

That's because Rush is the best band evar.

Closest venue is in Georgia, with Mastodon closing.
That would be a night to remember, and for sure a special show.

Interesting!  I actually skipped the Mastodon show in 2011 because it was "too close" to the Opeth show, which I attended.  If I went to this it would be the first band I've seen three times.  And I did like the Opeth show, but I was also irritated because it seemed like the crowd was talking over the top of the music all too often.  This venue (Filmore in Denver) is much larger than where they were in the fall (Ogden Theater), so maybe that will help.  Or not, because I saw Explosions in the Sky there in September and again was annoyed by all the chatter.

I will take it under advisement.  Smile

Ah what the heck , I'll go. I just need at least another person to go with. $40 won't hurt. I'll probably spend almost that amount on a stupid shirt at the concert too. :P
