I was stunned at how good these performers were - in particular, Marcel Coenen (guitars) and Joost van den Brook (keyboards). I know both are amazing players and have watched and listened to them both through the years ..... but tonight, for some reason, either experience or greatness or both just kicked into high gear on this night and I was just locked in on their performances throughout the whole show ...... I dare say, during a couple of moments, as I watched Marcel playing, I had thoughts of Michael Romeo in my head and just how good Marcel really is ......


Agree with both. They both make it look so incredibly effortless.

On a semi-related note, I was listening to some Ayreon yesterday and I submit that it should be international law that Arjen record and mix every album of any consequence for years to come. The guy is just a multi-faceted genius.
I'll be the judge of what's good and what isn't, thank you... ;)

***Based on what Arjen said for his 10-minute monolugue, he would disagree with you completely.......the rest of the world, would agree with you completely...... :)

Ok, I've just watched this... This is a must have concert on Blu-ray...
My only complain is this: Cutting in half great songs for playing about 1 hour of not great songs (mostly recent stuff)...
