Accept -- Reading, PA -- October 1st, 2010
Yes, I put both names in the thread title, because this review has both sets and this show is practically a double headliner anyway.
Awesome show, all the way around. I still think this was a really mismatched tour and the two bands put on two incredibly different kinds of shows, but they were both amazing.
The show started promptly at 8pm, with King's X just simply walking out in their traditional fashion. The next hour and a half was an expected incredible performance filled with tons of great rockin' songs, including a few nice surprises (They hadn't played Fall on Me live in almost 20 years prior to this tour). Dug Pinnick's performance was absolutely amazing, his vocals were so intense. He deviates a lot from the recordings, but almost all for the better. The whole band was just spot on, all 3 guys were excellent. The whole set was great, but highlights would have to include "Dogman", "Power of Love", "Complain", and the always awesome "Over My Head", in its typical extended fashion.
King's X setlist:
03.What Is This?
04.Power of Love
09.Go Tell Somebody
11.Fall on Me
13.Over My Head
14.We Were Born to Be Loved
The changeover between bands was fairly timely. King's X were off-stage at 9:15 and Accept were on by about 9:45 and had one of the best live mixes I've ever heard. All the instruments sounded great, especially the drums. The band were tight as hell and Mark Tornillo did an absolutely amazing job on vocals. Seriously, he's got to be one of the very best replacement vocalists I've ever heard. Their set was pretty much pure metal from start to finish and very entertaining. My only complaint is that I would've liked to hear "The Abyss" instead of "Pandemic".
Accept Setlist: (May be a little out of order, but all the songs are there)
02.Living For Tonite
06.Restless and Wild
07.Son of a Bitch
12.Up to the Limit
13.Flash Rockin' Man
15.Fast as a Shark
17.Princess of the Dawn
18.Balls to the Wall
A few crappy quality pictures from my phone:
If I weren't at school I'd probably go to Cleveland for this on Friday. With the exception of Balls to the Wall being ridiculously underrepresented, that's a solid Accept setlist, with basically all of the best songs from Restless and Wild and the new one. Glad you had a good time. :fist:
I really can't wait for this show. The King's X set list is excellent. The Accept set list is excellent. I like that they are playing No Shelter. I will, however, be disappointed if they don't play The Abyss and Monster Man like they were earlier in the tour.

They seem to changing the set up a bit every night. There's a couple songs here they didn't do at other shows, and a few they did at others that aren't here. Seems to be a good bit of variety while keeping the same core set.

Yeah, seems odd there's only one song. I would've LOVED to hear Losing More Than You've Ever Had.

That would have been my next choice from that record as well. Great tune.

I have to admit I'm mostly partial to it because Tad Morose did an absolutely GREAT cover of it on their last album (which at this point is over 6 years old).
Rolling Thunuder is no slouch!! Who knows what they will play? Scream for your favorite tune! They may play it!
come to Montreal !!
