Intro
7 Days to the Wolves
Dead to the World
Amaranth
Romanticide
Dead Boy's Poem

Nemo
Sahara
The Islander
Last of the Wilds
Dark Chest of Wonders

Encore:
Wish I Had An Angel


Pretty sure this is right. No Siren, Escapist, or Ghost Love Score played definitely. The venue was really small, but surprisingly the sound was really really good. I think they were having problems because 2 guys kept going on the stage fixing stuff or something and before Nemo Marco said "we have to talk bs for a while while they fix that" and someone was in the back with jukka. Then Anette said "yes we are doing the best we can" and they started on Nemo. Don't know if this is what caused them to miss out on the 3 songs or if they just completely dropped them from the set list.

Also volbeat was pretty good despite them all having the flu as the singer said, but I never listened to them before so don't have their set list.

Good set. I haven't heard Annette sing Romanticide or Dead Boy's Poem does she pull them off ok?

I'm not real familiar with Nightwish... isn't that the band with the totally finger-licking piece of tail for a singer?

Lol it is indeed a female singer. She did really good on the old songs, but The Siren and Escapist were both on the set list and not played because i think the drummer was sick? or something like that.

Was considering going to this show but wound up note going due to the price of tickets. Probably a good thing I didn't go, as I wound up going to the emergency room that night.

Yeah, I'm fine. I had to have my appendix taken out. I just got home today.

Croc Rock is an awful venue. It's such a love/hate relationship. I enjoy the fact that there's a venue 10 minutes from my house that will book national acts I want to see, but on the other hand the venue is pretty much awful in just about every sense of the word.

Did it burst, or were they able to take it out first?

They took it out. I had had an attack of sorts about 2-3 months ago but they couldn't really find out what it was and it just kind of subsided. But it happened again on Sunday night, and at about 5am I went into the Emergency Room. They ran a whole bunch of tests and whatnot and decided I should just have it removed. So around 2 in the afternoon yesterday I had surgery. I stayed overnight and came home about 2 hours ago. I'm fine, but stomach and throat both hurt quite a bit.

It's a good thing it didn't burst first, the surgery on that is worse. Glad it all went ok for you

If you had it burst at the concert, I bet they would've given you tons of free shit.
