The moment I saw the setlist for this show, I knew this was going to be something special, and it is. The guys seem to really be enjoying themselves and it shows in playing also. Other than that, this show is well worth getting for the full SDOIT on disc 1. The sound quality on this is great also.

Notes: The coverart suggests that disc 1 only has 6 songs, this is because it lists the Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence as one track instead of 8. Also this bootleg is often called just 'Amazing Theater'. Artwork included for front, back and inside tray.
