Tesla opened this show and got the crowd going. their setlist was short..about 45 min.

1. Coming at you live
2. Edison's medicine
3. I wanna live
4. Hang Tough
5. Heavens Trail
6. Signs
7. Love Song :lovedup:
8. Modern day cowboy :allan:
9. Little suzie :wtf:

jeff's voice was in and out throughout the show, they were a good opener but i dont think i would ever spend money to see em live on their own.

ok now on to the SCORPIONS! who rocked the place to the ground. played about 90minutes..but the drum solo and guitar solo really were longer then they should of been. claus sounds outstanding!!!! his voice reall blows you away. the whole band still has nothing but energy, confidence, and talent. came out strong and finished stronger. imma miss the Scorpions.:light:

their setlist was

Sting in the Tail
Make It Real
Is There Anybody There?
The Zoo :blaze:
Coast to Coast
Loving You Sunday Morning
Wind of Change
The Best Is Yet to Come
Send Me an Angel :light:
Holiday
Raised on Rock
Tease Me Please Me
Hit Between the Eyes
Kottak Attack (way too long, but cool)
Blackout :rocker:
Six String Sting
Big City Nights :rocker:
Encore:
Still Loving You :party::party::party::party::party:
No One Like You
Rock You Like a Hurricane

There's nothing :rocker: :horns: or :party: about that scorps setlist. I'm still glad I didn't/couldn't go.

Nearly the same setlist from when I saw them 2 years ago in New Hampshire. Swap out Is There Anybody There? for Bad Boys Running Wild & Hit Between The Eyes for Dynamite & it would've been the exact same setlist.

Tesla, OTOH, I always enjoy live. Good to hear that they played Edison's Medicine & Hang Tough on such a short set.

Indeed. Look, I like many of their songs past Lovedrive, but the period before that is still the best.

Jabs is no Roth, but please.

I for one think it's a really good set as I've never seen them before.

Throw in China White and Speedy's Coming and maybe then I would try to attend.

Of course they had to drop In Trance, just like I thought they would. Sometimes they play one or two pre-Lovedrive songs overseas, but never in North America.

I agree that never seeing them before the set is good. This set is pretty much the same as two years ago. But they were REALLY great!

I would love nothing more than a 70's only set, but you still need to milk the cash cow.

There's nothing :rocker: :horns: or :party: about that scorps setlist. I'm still glad I didn't/couldn't go.I agree. I was at this show, and they were even worse than they were on the first leg of the tour. It's painfully clear they're tired, and being that they don't even care enough to overhaul the setlist for what is likely the final US leg of their farewell tour, I'm glad they're going away.

Jeff Keith's voice was indeed in and out, but Tesla was much better than Scorpions this night.

You'd think for a farewell tour, you'd try something a little special for the fans. I mean why not like at least one track per album? That woulda been a neat thing to do
