Pops in Sauget, IL

Down was awesome. It was the day before Bower's B-Day so they sung happy B Day to him. The band was great as usual. Ponykiller and In Solitude were ok too. The crowd for this show was the perhaps the best, most intense crowd I have seen for any metal show. Thats over 200 + live acts. It was without a doubt the best crowd of the 15 Down concerts I have attended. You could tell the band was blown away by the intensity. Anselmo gave props to the crowd after every song. None of the starting the song over with the "I'm watching you like a hawk" business tonight. He said it was the best crowd he had seen in years.

Lysergic Funeral Procession (complete with intro)
Pillars of Eternity
Underneath Everything
The Path
New Orleans is a Dying Whore
Happy B-Day to Jim (with Kirk's special ending about Jim's small dick and big tits along with a Bower - Power chant from the crowd)
Losing All
Ghosts along the Mississippi
Temptations Wings
Eyes of the South
Stone the Crow
Bury Me In Smoke (Walk Away)

What an amazing show. I went to the Louisville show on 9/19 a few days later but the crowd paled in comparison so bad its not worth my time to review. The Sauget crowd was rabid!!!

Fuck Yeah!! :rocker: That show was killer! The crowd was definitely kickin' ass. Phil was really diggin' it.... I'd say it was a better show than the last time they came to Pops... I won't ever miss a DOWN show...

Man I wish I could of went to either show. I had tickets for Louisville vs. Kentucky football in Lexington on the 17th, so was uber pissed that I had to miss Down @ Pops (albeit Louisville winning and being able to walk out of that city alive was well worth it). Fucking work had to interfere with the show in Louisville. Hate when I can't catch a break for shit like that.
