    Just saw Rammstein at the Allstate Arena - best show I've ever seen, hands down.

    Yeah, it was a great show, no doubt. The exploding zombie babies were pretty cool and the setlist was perfect, except for Du Hast (I hate that song.)
    I've seen better visuals in a concert before (Alice Cooper, WASP, TSO, etc) but Rammstein are in the Top 5 for sure.

    ...will check out Deep Purple and CoB for sure.
    No other shows planned that I can think of, besides the local show here and there.
    I'll probably check out Metal Mergeance at Reggies on 7/16.


    I just saw Sister Sin at Memories this past Friday. Chick-fronted Swedish band....very 80s inspired gritty Rock Metal.

    Yeah, they did this past Saturday. I was at a party, so I didn't go.
    I looked at their webpage and it looks like they are playing at MoeJoes in Joliet (Toilet) coming up on June 1st.

    Yeah, "Du Hast" is probably one of the most overrated songs ever. I love Rammstein but that has to be one of their worst songs honestly. As for visuals I would probably rank them third next to Alice Cooper and Roger Waters. NIN at Lolla and TSO do come close though.

    Well my wife and I loved it. We're big fans, so finally getting a chance to see them was just incredible. We were both really into the show as well.

    Were you in section 211? After the show, we were trying to get out and I thought I saw you. I told my wife - "hey, I think that's the guy I randomly sat next to at American Carnage"

    :lol: Indeed I was. Weird how we keep being near each other at shows. Were you in that section as well?

    Yeah, about 4-5 rows back from the rail of the balcony. I got tickets the day they went on sale, and I couldn't get anything in the 100 level. The balcony seats were actually a very good vantage point for the show though, so I wasn't disappointed at all.

    Same here. I was amazed how quickly the thing was selling out and then how quickly it sold out. It did seem like the perfect vantage point. To be honest, with a show like that, I didn't really want to be that close to it. I gotta say though, of all the times I've been to the All-State, that was the best it's sounded. Usually I hate the damn sound in that place, but I could hear everything clearly that night.

    I could have had the corporate box all to myself for that show.
    I declined.

    We were in Section 211 as well. I bought tix the day they went on sale at 10am and had the same issue....nothing in 100. I'll never understand ticketbastard's allocation of ticket sales. It's crap.
    But the seats were not bad at all. Decent view.
    I knew this show would sell out quickly. It had been 10 yrs since they were last in the States and this band will always have a following.
