It was cool to hear some rare songs, but four songs were cut from the set for unknown reasons. (Violate, Pure Evil, Prophecy, Birth Of The Wicked.) Barlow sounded great and the band was tight. The place was packed from what I could see and the crowd was fairly loud. There was a decent crush up front. Overall it was a very good show. The only downside was the short set.

Great gig last night! Unfortunately, for whatever reason House of Blues has a 9:30 curfew. I don't know the reasoning but they're strict about it. I caught In Flames there a few years ago and they were forced to shorten the set considerably. They seemed caught off guard by it as they announced the last song pretty unexpectedly.

Last night, I happened to catch a glimpse of the crew sheet on the soundboard and it said, Curfew 9:30 SHARP!!!!!

I'm seeing them this weekend. I hope those 4 songs are in the set list when I see them. So the Sons Of Liberty lineup is pretty much Iced Earth - Matt Barlow + unknown guitarist? I know it's Schaffers solo project but this will be the 1st time I see members of a headlining band also being the support LOL

9:30 curfew wtf? I know the HOB in Hollywood has no such curfew so hopefully the set will be longer this Saturday.

Really? I know in the past they have had 11:00 or even 10:00 curfews but 9:30 is ridiculous. They should start earlier if that is the case so we can at least get a full set. Or (heaven forbid) they could cut the opener instead of the headliner!

Was there another late night 17+ or 21+ show by a different band that night?

I know the City of Chicago has a curfew for All Ages shows, but I know it's not THAT early. I'm 99.99% sure the city curfew is 10:30 weekdays and 11:30 on Fridays & Saturdays.

I really like that set. Could do without Watching over Me AND I Died For You but ah well. Add in the missing songs and thats a really good set. Nice to see Schaffer playing SOMETHING from Burnt Offerings. Wish they would do Burning Oasis though.

i would love to hear Burnt Offerings or Creator Failure off of that album (the high notes of Creator would be EPIC live imo). But I know that won't happen.

9:30 curfew? Damn, that's crazy. I've never been to a show, no matter the size of the venue, that ended that early. The local club here that gets all the major metal shows has a curfew of at least 11:30. I've seen shows go past midnight there as well. I've never been there but that's definitely a strange occurence at HOB in Chicago if you ask me.

Also, SOL could've cut two songs off their set so IE could've done a few more. IE is the band selling the tickets after all. You figure they would be informed of the curfew before their set started.

Yeah, I don't know the story. I know for a fact it was NEVER that early before the last year or so. I used to be a regular at HOB as far as concerts and just hanging out there. A LOT changed once Live Nation or whatever bought them out. I think it was Live Nation anyway.

Either way, it's crazy! Jon even made mention of it and the guys at the soundboard scrambled around a bit, checking their watches and the set list constantly. I have to say though that it was THE. BEST. SOUND. EVER. for a HOB show last night. Everything was spot on!

Jon was awfully preachy. He chatted between every song, going on about the government, etc. He had a story between every song. Had he cut that shorter, they could have played more and even IE could have started earlier.

Was there another late night 17+ or 21+ show by a different band that night? The HOB does occasionally host 2 shows a night. If they were hosting a second late night show that very same night that would explain the super early curfew.

There might have been. I didn't hear or see anything about it though. That'd at least justify it.

That curfew was bs, when they went to do an encore, i just though it was a little break for a 2 hour set. It was an amazing set all in all. But...FUCK THE HOUSE OF BLUES!
