I thought it was, granted I had never seen them before and my expectations were pretty neutral. I was blown away, I could not imagine seeing them another way than how they played last night. The string section really added a lot IMO.
They played an extremely balanced set, a few songs I think the most songs from a single CD was 4 from Transatlanticism (if I remember correctly). They played a lot of older tunes as well.
It was very attentive crowd, people weren't talking in during songs, the band was very appreciative of the fact that everyone was sitting and paying attention to the music.
