I'm hoping for

The Moor
Deliverance
The Drapery Falls
The Grand Conjuration

And that's probably gone over there time

First time i saw Opeth was at Download 04 second band on mainstage think they got 2 songs lol one was Deliverance can't remember the other one.

TRTD is short though

My favourite Opeth show was actually in 2006 on the Ghost Reveries tour

I'm not sure you can call the RAH show perfect - the technical problems for starters...and they also played The Lotus Eater.

They did have to play something from Watershed so I was expecting something average but I didn't like that they did the predictable song that they've played at every single show since the album came out. Didn't feel at all special, particularly not as a closer for the show. I was really hoping they'd do Coil or something and have time to sneak Demon Of The Fall in at the end.
