Not my first time to see the man. Won’t be the last. First saw him around 14 years ago - shortly after buying my first album by his band Porcupine Tree. In Abstentia. Since then I have acquired close to 50 of his albums (no exaggeration - I just checked) and seen him maybe 10 times. Yes - I am a fan.
Complete details here, (BTW every track in the list takes you through to a video of the song), in a nut shell …
Part one - Hand. Cannot. Erase. In It’s Entirety
Part Two - A trip down memory lane, including Lazarus (positioned as a tribute to David Bowie), a couple of tracks from 4 1/2, old Porcupine Tree etc.
Encore - including ‘Sign Of The Times’ - a Prince cover and ‘The Raven That Refused To Sing’ - self described by Wilson as the song that he considers to be his best song ever. Have to say - it is a favorite of mine aswell.

Oh - and if you want a little snippet of the Prince cover:
