    What was that guy in the crowd singing after Mikael Akerfeldt was telling the wine story?

    What a fantastic show, I enjoyed everyone from unexpect through to DT. Akerfelts cabare was great as usual and they played one of my favourite tracks "Reverie/Harlequin Forest" XD Dream Theater were amazing, I saw them at download earlier this year and thought they were really good but Fridays performance blew me away, James Labrie blew me away he was so tight every note was pretty much spot on and when they played the dance of eternity I nearly exploded! Does anyone have any decent photos of the night, I normally get images from flickr but there are only a couple on there.

    Opeth couldn't have been any more awesome if they had tits and were on fire.

    I loved unexpect, big elf and opeth so much. Dream theater were good but i'm not really a fan...... good night. :)

    awesome gig, a bit disappointed with Opeth myself, but then I'm not a fan anyway. Bigelf was a surprising highlight for me and wow Dream Theater, brilliant :D

    Also, Petrucci's solo was intense that a bloke in front of me collapsed! \m/

    @fodzy There were some guys behind me during Opeth who would only talk as loud as they could during the quietest parts, needless to say I told them to shut the hell up! Fantastic gig, rubbish crowd...apart from the guy in the row in front rocking out as much as me to DT. First time I've seen Opeth and certainly not the last, although I though DT's set could've been a bit move varied. Nothing before 2000? Come on!

    The acts were awesome, absolutely crap vibe it has to be said. In the first three rows at the far right, almost got a pit going during opeths set until a few of the middle aged guys around us got a little upset. That and the sodding couple next to me wouldn't shut the hell up.

    I thought each band was most excellent. I enjoyed Unexpect's bassist's guitar and the wizard animations to Rudess' solos :p

    Opeth's set was fantastic, April Ethereal was just perfection. I watched an hour of DT's set then went home, I couldn't bare to watch them for a second longer .

    The Opeth setlist was absolutely perfect... well I guess Bleak would have made it truly perfect but the fact that they played Reverie/Harlequin Forest made my night, soo glad I got to see them especially since they are going on a break for a while.

    I thought it was brilliant. And i am also so so happy about getting stuff off scenes for a memory! It was fantastic:D And Jordan Rudess is just too good. God, they all are :D:D

    Because Dream Theater sometimes play long instrumental sections, they made a tent behind John Petrucci's stacks where he can keep a kettle, honey and some water for his voice. Generally a relaxing place for James.

    Was somewhat surprised at the choice of the support acts. The Screaming of Opeth and Unexpect seems to be at odds with the melody of Dream Theater. It completely spoils their songs for me. Frost at Leeds earlier in the year was a much better fit.

    Same Opeth made the gig for me. I don't mind the whole DT set because I don't listen to 'em. But yeah it went on far too long. Where the fuck did the lead singer fuck off to every 5 seconds?

    the As I Am recording was by Pipo & Elo, who are a french couple that do acoustic DT covers they have covered Scenes From A Memory in its entirety and a few other covers such as As I Am & Pull Me Under you can download their stuff at http://pipoelo.free.fr/music.html
