This was the first standalone show the guys have done as part of this festival-heavy tour so they seemed glad to play in front of their dedicated fan base.
Setlist was pretty standard for this tour but they did play "Island of Fools", which was a nice treat. I'd only seen it once before at the Silver Springs show earlier this year, where I was way in the back with a terrible view, so it was cool to see it from a better vantage point.
Before playing OYE Myles joked about his awkward performance in the music video. Good thing no one brought up "Sick and Wrong" .
I quite liked In Flames as well. Only listened to them a few times before and they're definitely at the more metal end of my tolerable spectrum, but I think I'll be putting them into more regular rotation.
Also ran into Cameron and also got to meet Micky, so that was cool! Hope to see you guys again soon.
It was a great show! Crowd was really into it.
Big pop when they said they were playing Island of Fools!
I loved when Myles was talking about how dumb he looked when he was filming the OYE video and that he would sing and look cooler for us when they played OYE, and then he missed his key to start singing
Was happy to meet you do! We will get together for another show again soon!
