So the DT stuff isn't tonight?

I'm with Bosk re ACOS. Nothing weird about it at all. Makes sense for both MP and DT to play it this year.

Nope. His birthday celebration spans two sets, one opened the cruise today and the other is the finale on Friday. He's playing the 12SS plus ??? on Friday.

Looking at the line up and the set list, that looks like quite a party.  :tup

And the 12ss plus is what will be at other shows then, I assume.  Birthday bash and cruise has been amazing thus far.

All the Flying Colors guys out first

Infinite Fire
Place in Your World
Kayla
Mask Machine

Awesome start to the show! I cannot imagine "Infinite Fire" being an opener, but I'm sure it was pretty hype. Cool move picking 2 songs from each, especially "Kayla" and "Mask Machine", the two "leading singles" from those albums.


Everyone but Mike and Neal left the stage and they brought out Pete, announced Ted Leonard as Roine's replacement, and brought out Bill from the NMB as the utility fifth musician.

Into the Blue
We All Need Some Light Now
Stranger In Your Soul

Daniel Gildenlow came out to do vocals for the part he recorded on the album version of Into the Blue as well as contribute backing vocals for We All Need Some Light Now. Great set overall, seeing the end of Stranger In Your Soul live is always a borderline religious experience for me.

YES! I am so very glad that Daniel *finally* got to sing his studio part live. I'm sure he really wanted to be a part of the Kaleidoscope tour 3 years ago. I'm curious as to how Ted handled Roine's parts, though I am sure he's a very capable guitarist. I'm glad he joined them instead of Eric Gillette, who would have seemed like an obvious choice. Perhaps Eric will be a part of the 12SS set?! Also, I hope you mean "substitute" and not "replacement" for Roine, because the latter sounds like they have decided to carry on without him for the foreseeable future, which would be very sad. And having Bill as the all-around utility man makes a lot of sense. I can only imagine how well the vocal harmonies must have sounded with all five of their voices.

Question about "Stranger In Your Soul" - did they do the whole middle-section jam and traded instruments? Seems like every performance of that full song has featured that jam since the end of the BAF Tour (where it started, near the end of the tour).

-Marc.

No worries, no indication that Ted (who did do a fairly good job) would be playing in place of Roine for anything beyond Tuesday's set. Sadly, no instrument switching jam in the middle of Stranger in Your Soul.

Especially after watching the NMB set yesterday, I would be shocked if Eric wasn't covering guitar for the 12SS set tomorrow night. He's definitely got the chops, it feels like there's some Petrucci in his lead playing, and he even plays what looks like a JP model guitar :lol Meanwhile Nick has money on Diego from Haken for keys.

No news, he's doing his best to keep everything a secret. Show is supposed to start four hours from now. I'll post some basic info about who else is playing with him during the intros if I can.

Cool! Don't worry with us, enjoy the show!
From what I saw on MP forum, my bet is Daniel G on vocals, Eric Gillette and bass and keys from Haken. :tup

My only prediction is that Mike will sit in with Steve Hackett on Supper's Ready and Firth of Fifth, his 2 favorite genesis songs and also 2 of his top 100 if I'm not mistaken.

Nevermind.  Steve Hackett already played. No MP.  Unless he is doing another set, I gotta say I'm surprised.

I've sadly been beer free for a couple hours, don't want to risk an uncooperative bladder partway through the set.

Diego and Connor from Haken. Eric Gillette is the guitarist for Neal Morse Band and is pretty much a Petrucci clone. No surprises on the lineup.

So who will the vocalist be?  Probably the other guy from Hacken?

From what I heard Eric seems like a good choice for guitar.  Just keep him away from the microphone though
