I was looking at old setlists of shows I'd been to, and was remembering Haken in Chicago in 2015. It was their first headlining show in the US, and I think it's the best concert I've ever been to. Their finale was Crystallised, then for the encore they come back out and start playing Visions. We were so spoiled back then. I'll never forget the crowd chanting "holy shit!" at the end.

Yeah Heavys are a brand of headphones designed for metal music. No idea if they do so successfully or not.

I guess this is Haken branded headphones? Cool for people who are into that sort of thing.

Wow, it's like people who listen to the album just kind of check out after "Elephants Never Forget". :/

Song has grown on me, but it's not a favorite from the album so I'm not surprised

It’s a really nice song that to me is marred by going big after the first and second chorus (just put the pots and pans down next time.) The second half is exquisite, lots of Teflon Tel Aviv (laptronica) and Pearl Jam vibes with this one.

The ruined by going big happens to Sempiternal Beings (end of first verse, end of first chorus) and Beneath the White Rainbow (opening cacophony) too. Two near masterpieces IMO if not for going overboard prematurely. SB is probably their best song IMO if they could’ve held back and let Ross cook.

Nonetheless, all great additions to the catalog. Looking forward to what’s next in terms of new music.

Yep, probably my two favorite songs of both those albums.

Just make sure he knows that them having two sets of music for the Evening With does not let them off the hook for a covers set on Cruise to the Edge :hat

No. He won't do that to them. I wouldn't either. We do know from their videos that they'll play Fauna from start to finish in one set.

Yeah Fauna in its entirety. The rest of the set is spread across all their other albums, pretty evenly.

I kind of expect some more Aquarius than usual, but good to know the spread is even.  Looking forward to the show in a couple months.

I just hope the second set isn't filled with the same ole same ole usual songs... 1985, cockroach king, falling back to earth, in memoriam, the architect (basically the top 5 songs they've played according to setlist.fm).  Obviously I expect them to play some of those, as they are the biggest songs, but I just hope the second set isn't exclusively those type of songs and more deep cuts.  I'd love to hear more Visions songs (not the title track) personally as I've hardly heard any of the many times I've seen Haken now.

I'm just hoping they record a new live album for this evening with tour.
It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

Might be cool, I just hope the turn outs are good.  I mostly worry that with the seats and the local shows for me not being too well sold, that it may be a low energy show and not make the best for a video. NYC show for example https://www.ticketmaster.com/an-evening-with-haken-new-york-city-new-york-03-02-2024/event/00005F27D1A852A0 that venue is almost 4 times the size they normally play in NYC (although without GA, it's probably closer to twice the size capacity).

Would have been awesome for them to record one of the previous NYC shows that were packed 500 person GA venues that had great energy in the room.

Definitely not a case of just playing the hits. Other than Fauna, they're not playing very much that they've played since Pete rejoined the band, which is why he's having to learn so many songs! :lol

When it comes to what I hope for, it's mostly to be surprised and hear new stuff, which was great on the last tour.

Specifically, from Aquarius basically anything except Drowning in the Flood or Celestial Elixir would be awesome. That said, even though I've now seen the latter plenty, I'd never complain about it.

From Visions, literally anything but Visions would be great.

The Mountain it's tough to complain about anything, but I'd love to see As Death Embraces, Because It's There, or Somebody. That said, I find those highly unlikely, and I think RJ is right that it's Pareidolia's time to return to the rotation.

Affinity is easily Endless Knot and Bound By Gravity.

Vector, The Good Doctor doesn't get nearly enough love and should return.

And Canary Yellow absolutely needs to get put in the set from Virus.

---

And I'll find out what's happening sooner than expected. Realized the Red Wings have a noon game in Detroit on the 24th of February, and Haken plays that night, so definitely making a flight out for an epic day.
