Incredibly long "medley" with small pieces of the following songs:
Shock / Den of Thieves / Roll Over and Play Dead / Hell is for Heroes /
Notorious / Psychopath / Ultra Violence / (We are) The Only Ones

I called it a "medley" because the songs didn't really flow into one another, it was like play a chorus, then play another chorus, then maybe a verse and a chorus, etc.

As always, Lizzy Borden was excellent. I have been a big fan of his since Visual Lies came out, and he has always sounded great live. He brings a theatrical metal performance which is enjoyable to watch. The Lady Gaga song was actually kind of cool, because Lizzy made it metal. I would not have known that was Lady Gaga, but I had noticed that on setlists.fm.
I have always liked Lizzy Borden's music, and Lizzy's voice is unique and awesome for metal. After all these years, his voice still sounds great. What always surprises me is the small crowds that come see him, especially because tickets are always cheap - this one was $10. I just don't think he gets the respect and fan base he deserves - awesome show though.

I was asked to go tonight in St. Paul, $10 tickets. If I would have been able to I would have been there.

Awesome set.
