I think John Hogg is fantastic. That's a big fat role to fill up there on some big fat tunes. The only knock was some botched lyrics or phrasing here and there. Conspiracy was probably the worst of the bunch but it didn't matter. Nothing a few nights in the woodshed won't cure. Every mistake or missed change anyone made was laughed off for the most part. That'll change. His voice is great. Love his demeanor and attitude on stage. You could see he was having a ball. Everyone was.
Can you imagine being expected to step up and sing some of those songs and phrase some of Chris' lyrics though? 80+ songs learned in a short amount of time and nobody around me seemed to be judging him hard.
Biggest and best surprise for me was seeing Sven unleashed. I've never seen him play more aggressively or freely and it was a treat getting to hear him play lead runs in spots and at times see him direct band members around certain parts.
And don't sleep on Nico.
