Great show, but a tad abbreviated as there were no Steve Howe solos, Aliens, or Long Distance Runaround / the Fish. They did bring back Owner Of A Lonely Heart, though. Benoit's voice cracked a few times, Steve's guitar went out after his pedal steel solo in Siberian Khatru, but came back at a good spot (interesting to hear what the keys do doing that particular place). I tried out my new recorder and it did a great job. The theatre is like a 3/4 punch bowl with the stage being the other 1/4. My seat was in the center, but about 3 or 4 rows from the back wall (place only seats 1700). Perfect view, no obstructions, and no screamers or talkers on either side of me. I recorded the complete show (and then some). Running showtime here is about 115 minutes.
