Fantastic news and obviously there's more important things than a concert, but this is overall a positive

Going to the show tomorrow night in San Diego, my first Haken show!  Hopefully they'll be a good turn out for them and there's no sound issues like I've been reading about in some of the recent shows.
I attended my first Haken show the other night in San Diego and they were awesome!  They had a decent turnout (estimating about 400 people in an approx. 500 capacity bar/club (these are guesstimates) - the point being the place seemed about 80% full or so and it was an enthusiastic crowd).  The sound was good (although when we got up close on Richard's side, it was a little tough to hear Charlie's guitar), but from a bit further back, the sound was loud, clear and full with all instruments clearly audible. They all played great and Ross was excellent as well.  Ray affirmed in my mind my decision to rank him quite high on my drummers list lol - the dude's a beast back there.  And the setlist was kick ass! Glad to see a decent amount of material from The Mountain - and the last two "epics", were both incredible!  Anyone on the fence about this tour should go with confidence - this is a great show!

Just got home, and goddamn did they fucking crush it. Flawless performance and the set list absolutely slayed. Venue is probably the nicest of the smaller places in SF, so they sounded great. I was first in line, and was front and center for the show. Meet and greet was cool, all the guys were cool as hell. When I told Pete I knew his bro he was all "I think I've heard that ten times on this tour", and I said "yeah, I probably know all of them too" :lol


Anyways, epic souvenir, managed to get the Haken apron I got for Secret Santa signed...

Maybe more like two thirds - there's also a bunch of people I know from the Haken fan communities.

Guys, I’m completely freaking out right now! I wandered all over the University district looking for a decent place to eat, and finally settled on a really cool looking pizza pub. I walk in, and Charlie is sitting at the end of the bar talking to some fans. He looked right at me and said, “Where is your sweater? You’re the dude!”

What a fantastic show! Just wish they would have played a bit more from Fauna. But I wouldn’t know what to cut to make room. The set was fantastic! And Arch Echo killed it as well!

In all seriousness, prepare your transit ahead of time. Taylor Swift is playing three shows in Chicago this weekend, meaning traffic will be a nightmare, so plan accordingly.

The band killed it last night.

I was up front and center for both sets. I ended up getting a broken drumstick from Richie, and met the band at their merch booth to have it signed.
