I don't know why, but they cut 3 songs from the normal set they have been playing on this tour. They came on at about 11pm and were done by midnite. It was an okay show. I thought the video screen was kind of dumb. Playing the old mtv promo videos in the background did nothing for the show IMO. The footage they showed during "Heaven", however was efective.
Wasp/Blackie has always been some what of an enigma to me and I can probably go another 10,000 words on the subject, but I'll spare every one....

The one thing I do have to say is that while I thought they were just going through the motions last night, their perormance of "The Idol" was absolutely sublime. Blackie can be an amazing performer/artist when he wants to be and I think his post '80s material shits all over those tired old "classics" from the first 3 albums. The drummer and guitarist deserve some kudos as well.

I've liked W.A.S.P. for a long time, but Blackie's a douche. Why must there ALWAYS be a problem?
