The do-over at the beginning really put me off. Pulling a stunt like that when the show is already an hour behind schedule - and you are NOT the headliner? Seriously? So the band wanted to start the show with the curtains closed, smoke, and a high energy entrance. Great. But the time to have discussed that was, oh, I dont know maybe TWELVE FUCKING MONTHS AGO when the show was announced? And the real irony was that entrance #2 was not that much different from entrance #1. I was sitting a few rows behind the soundboard, and the band lost a lot of crowd support with entrance #2, although they did start winning people back as the set progressed. And it WAS a good set, although unfortunately, not what the band will be remembered for in years to come. Sure hope the band stayed for Jon Olivas Pain to see how a *real* pro handles himself at a rocknroll show when things dont go 100% perfectly.
