I'm probably going to see them with my friend at Buffalo in late June. It's not too far from Toronto, maybe roughly an hour; though, we have to cross the border into the states. My friend saw them play at a local venue about 4 years ago just after David left the band. Pawn Hearts and Godbluff were the majority of the setlist, he recalled, so hopefully it's like that this time. I assume they'll play some more recent material too and maybe even some stuff off the new album as well.
This is going to be absolutely amazing! Big smileBowdown

Wish they came to Prague. They were here last year (for the first and probably the last time) but I didn't know them that time. Go and njoy the concerts instead of me !!
It doesn't feel so very bad now,
I think the end is the start.
Begin to feel very glad now.

^Undercover Man, Lemmings, Childlike Faith & Still Life were there in 2009. Mindblowing stuff. Yeah, hope they're still in the set list.
Have you seen them Khajiits?

Don't rush out after the show.  NewEars often gets the musicians to stay for an autograph signing session.
Trust me. I know what I'm doing.

They did a rare performance of La Rossa for an encore in Chicago in '09 (it was FANTASTIC!!) and Man Erg is almost always played.

... they played one or two more, but I didn't recognize them. Nothing from the classic era. Peter's voice was in fine form and the band rocked the house.
