Do you guys know if they'll play the whole new album at the Night Of The Prog? Or will they play other songs as well?

I don't know 100%, but I think they'll do other songs and are saving the whole album for their own tour.

I was hoping it would be this way. I bet, their new one is great, but I don't know it so well yet. Also, maybe it's better for a festival if they play their classics, because 1. they dont have so much time like at their own concerts (and Legend is super long) and 2. people wanna hear Mission Profile and Light & Space goddamnit
:rollin  The people, or you?  :)  In all seriousness, I kinda agree with that.  They're not the headliners, so they might not have a long enough slot.  Logistically, it might not even be possible.  Otherwise, for most festivals with all kinds of different metal,  I'd say they should do a mixed set. But for a prog festival - if they had the time, maybe as headliners, it wouldn't be out of line for them to do their first double album in it's entirety. If they had a 2 hour slot they could still play Light and Space and Mission Profile too. (Both are favorites of mine too).

In fact, Neal Morse and Spock's Beard did just that 2 years ago (2 years already? wow).
But yeah you got me. I would like a cool mix of their best songs better  :biggrin:

Although I've never really seen it before, Seth Rogen, apparently.

I totally see it in that pic, but I'm a huge Seth Rogen fan so that's also a compliment  :metal

Hehehe.  Since I get to see them live almost never, I was very happy with the set they played.  Both the obvious ones, and songs like Hollow and Pressure, which I think may get overlooked but are *incredible*.  Looking at their setlists however, I think they could probably stand to mix it up a bit more than they do.  If I got to see them on each tour I'd be wanting them to bring out some more songs.

Which is completely (and oddly... for you) 100% correct.
Can you imagine some alien race comes to a large nebula they've never seen before, and it just turns out it's the Federation's dumping ground for space-smile?

Although twice it was only for a day, I've been to RoSfest 6 times since 2010.

Ah OK.  I had been once before - I found out about it while looking up Riverside tour dates and thought the lineup was very cool.  I went for the whole thing, but when I got there, I heard a lot of complaints about the lineup and it seemed to be an anomaly.  I remember one person talking about how Shadow Gallery was a "local band" and maybe that's why all these new people showed up for that day.  It was odd, but the guy I sat next to told me that a lot of the bands were much heavier than usual.  This time I just went for Saturday, and knew more about what to expect so I wasn't thrown like I had been the first time.

Hey Fritzinger, almost time for Night of the Prog.  Any chance you could put a GoPro on your head and live stream Threshold's set?  Just a little favor... :)
