The Mouth Licking What You've Bled
Electric Red
Perpetual Black Second
Rational Gaze
Straws Pulled At Random
Future Breed Machine

Let's Go
The Dick Song
Watch Yourself
Life is Good
The Last Sucker
No W
Rio Grande Blood
Senor Peligro
Khyber Pass

Just One Fix

Roadhouse Blues
Just Got Paid
Under My Thumb

I'd be completely satisfied if Meshuggah sticks to this set and comes back around for a headlining tour, because I feared it would have been much shorter due to the announcement about Thomas Haake's surgery. The Mouth Licking What You've Bled should be replaced with Cyanide without question, but at least the 3 new songs are out of my top 4 choices.
Things aren't looking so great for Ministry. So as much as I'd like to hear Roadhouse Blues, I don't think I'll be sticking around too long since I have to be up early Thursday.

that was Ministry's whole set list?
Wow...that isn't good...
Please be better on Saturday

Meshuggah should without a doubt keep "The Mouth Licking What You've Bled", yeah more people know 'Cyanide Christ' but personaly I feel 'Mouth' is a better song. Aside from that I wish they took out "Pravus" and played "obZen" but I am going to be happy either way, I just hope for 2 things:
1) They get a set this long at New England Metalfest
2) They come back and do a justly earned headlining set

It could go either way, but being realistic, that would be the next in line.
If it were up to me, I would go with Concatenation

What an awful tour name.

That ministry setlist is an abortion. Press releases for this tour said it would be a 2.5 hour set spanning their whole career, which this obviously isn't.

Also, both encores are done with only Burton C Bell on vocals, Al can't even be bothered to do vocals on those songs. What a load of toss.

Goddamn, by the terrible feedback I'm hearing I'm glad I'm not a Minstry fan, because as a Meshuggah one I am more than satisfied.

And why is Burton C. Bell singing, Fear Factory isn't playing are they?

No, Burton sang a song on Ministry's new album, and is billed as a "special guest artist" with Ministry, which apparently means "Al can't be bothered to sing old songs, so we will have someone else do it."

I'm leaving for the show in a couple hours. If the setlist is the same, I'll just leave my review here.

So I'm back.
Same setlist, but it was performed nearly flawless as expected. I was on the rail and ended up with a setlist, my friend got a stick.
We only stuck around for the first 4 Ministry songs, which was plenty for me. Not saying that it was bad. It was quite a spectacle, something that I haven't seen many bands pull off. If you don't count cutting heads off rubber costumes, it was better than Gwar.
