    That was actually his cousin. :)

    Seems that Romeo was the only Xer who didn't eat at Denny's (LePond ate there with some friends before the show at the same time Pinnella & I went over for dinner); he had Wendy's after the show instead. :lol:

    they haven't really been tight lipped. If you check blabbermouth pretty much everything has been confirmed except for the dates, and even some of those have leaked. It is 100% happening from what i have heard (pretty much straight from Halford's mouth by the way)

    Hah! I didn't remember what Jason's wife looked like, so I was just assuming. Silly me.

    A couple of the guys I know who work at Denny's are SX fans and were totally stoked to be serving the guys in the band.

    I didn't know you were at the Mokena gig, Jax. I would have tried sayin' "hi". :)

    I've seen the SyX and IE setlists in this thread, anyone have Epica's setlist? I tried to register on their forum to get it, but haven't received an 'admin' approval yet. Let me know, thanks.

    I'm not an Epica fan, but I know they played two songs off their latest CD. One was called "Fools of..." something.

    Might? Oh, you will go. Go with the whole Skelator crew and practice acapella. It'll be a band field trip.

    Jax, do you have an estimate of what time SX will be going on at the West Hollywood show? I have a stupid freaking gig that I just want to skip, but I can't. And there's no way in hell I'm missing Masquerade live!

    It's really hard to say, Jeff. It depends on what night a show is (I was surprised that they were scheduled to start at 9pm in Mokena, but given that it was a Sunday night, an earlier time makes more sense), how many openers there are, how smoothly soundchecks go, and so on & so on..you know how it goes.

    I'm going to go out on a limb & say that you should be okay if you're there by 10..

    That part is very important. Especially for anyone who was at the Mokena show.

    Well, the problem is more that we're all poor... spending all our money on beer and sandwiches smoetimes has its drawbacks....

    I'm gonna try to get us switched to an earlier slot on our show (it's gonna be a crappy one anyway) so I can make it. Hopefully I'll see ya there!

    No way! I don't mean for SX, I didn't feel like their soundcheck was all that bad, I've seen their soundchecks be 10x worse! I meant the horrible debacle that was the Into Eternity soundcheck. Was Cleveland really worse?

    Seattle was friggin' awesome :D

    Russ sounded great so I assume his cold is gone for good :)

    Too bad the audience up front were a bunch of tossers. These three guys tried to push me out of my spot every other song. I finally got tired of it and hit one on the arm and stepped on his foot really hard. That seemed to get my message across. I'm all for excitement at a concert but trying to injury someone just because you want to get closer is not alright :mad:

    The setlist:
    Oculus
    Set the Word on Fire
    Domination
    Serpent's Kiss
    Masquerade
    Paradise Lost
    Egypt/Death of Balance
    Walls of Babylon
    Inferno
    Smoke and Mirrors
    Revelation/end of Divine Wings
    -----------
    Eve of Seduction
    Out of the Ashes
    Of Sins and Shadows (listed on the paper setlist but they didn't play it)
