    I didn't take any crowd shots, but I never saw it more than about 3 "rows" deep from the stage. It looked like twice the audience for the last Firewind show, half the crowd that came for Adrenaline Mob/UTPOM and a sad fraction of what a Blind Guardian or Iced Earth show would do.

    Your merch table was definitely jumping though, and your band seems to have some very devoted local fans. Congrats on that.

    Wow, that is a damn fine setlist!!!!!!!!

    The question I have though is can people be at the bar at JAXX without having purchased a ticket to the show itself?

    Many venues are like that, such as Reggies in Chicago.

    I don't think so. Maybe the policy has changed now that they are Empire.

    I doubt it. It would require people to man the two entrances to the main room, which last I checked they weren't doing.

    Personally, I wouldn't have been able to go even if I wanted to. I had just driven back from Cleveland, where I attended a friend's wedding. I was pretty beat.

    Course, last weekend was when EVERYTHING had to happen.

    I read a review on Metalsetlists.
    The reviewer said there were 100

    I suppose it's possible, but it sure didn't look like it.

    For the sake of argument, 100 people were there...

    Empire fits what, 400? It's still hardly a "near sellout"...

    I've heard she's changing up the setlist every night.

    Why the heck does she waste time doing a Priest cover, esp such a commercial staple?

    anyone going to see a Doro show is a fan of Doro or Warlock.

    It's not like she is some new artist that has to rely on playing a larger band's song to get people to remember her.

    Maybe because it's fun for her and the band?

    I have no problem with one cover song, but I'd like to know why after releasing a massive debut CD, Guns and Roses elected to record and perform live cover song after cover song after cover song. It's just what bands do. Heck, even Rush recorded a CD of cover songs and performed them live. That's the last band that needed to do that.

    She says it's to pay respect to the band that took Warlock out on their first big tour. And it's a cool semi-acoustic version that has become a highlight of her live shows. And it's fun.

    Nope, you're right about that. But the City Paper reported at 150-200 people, so hey, still not bad for a Sunday, and way more full than I'm used to seeing!

    Here's the mini article, plus some REALLY awesome photos by a local photog who was there.

    Those are great photos. No way that headcount is correct though.
