They had Pareidolia as part of their festival set last summer. Always a highlight.

Well I haven't seen it since the Affinity tour... So for me it's definitely past due.

In a twist, Haken will be performing the hit 1983 album Can't Slow Down by Lionel Richie in its entirety.

I just realized the show I'm driving to LA will be the first of the tour, so unlike usual where I'll cheat and know the set, I'm actually going to be totally surprised.

That's always fun, especially for a band where you know all the music.  Sometimes when I'm seeing a band I'm not too familiar with, I'd rather it not be the first show so I can look up the setlist and listen to those songs, but for Haken, I'd love to have the surprise of the first night.

Yeah, for most bands I'm the same way, especially on shows I know a few songs from the artists and am just hitting a show for the fun of it. As to bands I know thoroughly and am catching the first show of a tour, I've had it happen twice before... DT on ADTOE tour, and Marillion on the F.E.A.R. tour. The Marillion one was really something cause that was the first show of that album, so basically half the set was world premieres, and peeps from all over the world flew into SF for it.

Damn.... no Florida dates.  8 hour drive to Atlanta? Don't think I have it in me.  Hopefully they'll record it!

Yeah I was on the fence about the 6 hour drive to LA, but my buddy offered to cover the tickets if I drove. He's brand spanking new to Haken, my posts from their last show was his introduction to them. He's one of my J-metal buds so I'd like to see what he thinks about a band that isn't five feet tall and cute  :lol

Yeah, the no FL dates was a bummer. I originally was flying home to do the NYC and NJ shows back to back but when Big Big Train announced two NJ shows the same weekend I pivoted a little bit :lol

That's a road trip for sure!  As a kid in San Jose we used to make that drive to LA all the time.  Enjoy the show Bro!!

It's a long drive for sure, but getting cozier with it for shows. Head down the morning of the show, then crash ya a motel on the other side of the grapevine before heading home. It's tolerable, and every show I've done it for has been totally worth it

Mostly for Count and RJ, but AXS now has a proper seating chart for the Fonda Theater gig. We were guessing when we bought tickets. If anybody else wants to see where their seats actually are, now they can. Looks like Count and I hit home runs.

They just assigned you like maybe based on when you bought the tickets?  That SUCKS although it sounds like it worked out in your case.

It was a "best available" thing, but unfortunately the venue doesn't have seating charts available for the floor. They're almost entirely GA or tables for gigs there, with reserved seats only in the balcony. Somewhere along the way AXS got the live view up and working.

And seriously, you don't remember a time before picking your own seat? Man, for half my life the nice lady at TM told you what you got and you either took it or stormed off in a huff.  :lol

Well I know some venues have first come first server, it's usually known.  Like if I buy a VIP table seat at Sony Hall in NYC, you won't know your seat until you get there, but those seats are all fairly similiar in the same section.  I can't recall on ticketmaster or AXS buying a seated ticket and not knowing the seat for the floor.

Definitely remember the days of a buddy went to the TM line at Sears and we “scored” while having no idea what I was getting into…

A little worried about this tour, got nice seats but much prefer GA still. Was getting bored by middle of Elephants last tour not sure I can sit through it seated this time

I'm expecting the new setlist to be amazing and hoping for a live release from this tour at some point.
It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

I’m kinda wondering about the Asia/Australia Fauna expedition now. They’re back to having an opening act, so I’m hoping it won’t be a case of we lose the best songs from Fauna and the second set and get something fairly generic.

Also, Deathless for Perth!!

It's a first for the Asian countries, isn't it? One of the Japanese guitarist I follow was very pumped to finally be seeing them.

Definitely Thailands first time, Ive been chatting with the mother of a Thai drummer who does Haken covers, and they're beyond excited to see them. The kid actually gets remote lessons from Ray so I'm hoping they get a chance to meet
