Gwar -- Denver, CO -- November 16th, 2011
 
ok, first set list report here and i have alot of comments about the show before i post the set.

Venue: The Summit

First, i took my 8 year old son and he was a trooper :blaze: ! I got there 1.5 hours before the doors opened so we could be at the front of the line so i could get us a seat in the balcony. It was 29 degrees out and he never complained once while we waited. It was nearly midnight before we got home and he kept me awake on the drive home talking about the show. Big props to my boy!

Warbeast- I admit i've never heard them play until last night. I've seen some different opinions on their live show and i'm with the :rocker: camp. I thought they were great. This morning i looked around the net and sure enough they are on Phil Anselmo's record label. After their set (too short for me, i wanted more), i told the guy standing by me that they could do a damn good cover of something Pantera....go figure....Anyhow, don't have their set but i assume it's the same as previous shows. Crowd was very good for them and they seemed to really be enjoying playing. Guitarist looked like he'd kick everyone's ass in the venue as well :)

ETID- I've listened to them a bit here and there and they are sorta "meh" to me. I thought they had good energy and the crowd enjoyed them as well. However, most of their songs sounded repetative and similar. I ejoyed them for about 4 or 5 songs and then i was ready for them to be done. Same set as previous shows as well i assume. I'd skip them next time if given a choice. Not bad per say, but just not my type of band.

Now for Gwar!!!!!!

Outside the venue, a fan had made a huge banner in tribute to Cory. It was an awesome banner and she had everyone sign it while waiting in line and i believe it eventually made it's way to Gwar before the night was done.

First the setlist

Zombies, March!
A Gathering Of Ghouls
Storm Is Coming
Jagermonsta
Eighth Lock
Crack In The Egg
Bring Back The Bomb
Immortal Corruptor
Hail, Genocide! :rocker: (my son's favorite gwar song)
KZ Necromancer
Metal Metal Land
Let Us Slay
Damnation Under God
The Uberklaw
Ham On The Bone
The Salaminizer
Maggots
Sick Of You

Now my thoughts of the show. I don't know if i've read it yet, but after Let us Slay, Oderus went on a huge rant about the Mayhem Festival. He said, "So they just annouced the bands for the Mayhem Festival for next years tour (everyone goes nuts thinking gwar will be on it). A pause and then "But once again Gwar will not be on the tour (with loud booing). "But Slipknot and Hatebreed and a bunch of other bands we have all listened to 500,000 times will be". "Fuck Mayhem and fuck that shitty tour". "Their idea of "Mayhem" is "Metallica and Lou Reed". He really seemed pissed and not joking around about it. I thought it was great and the highlight of the show. After Damnation Under God he again went on a rant about Mayhem and the Warped Tour. Calling the bands on the Warped Tour a bunch of faggots.....but he said he means faggot in a nice way since he's half fag himself :party: Damnit if Oderus isn't kick ass.

3rd time seeing Gwar and once again they prove they are second to none when it comes to live shows.

Last thing i wanna mention, i really noticed the difference without Cory. The great riffs i love weren't there and it made me sad. Gwar sounded great live, like always. But there was definitely a distinct sound difference for me. I know Gwar hears and misses it nightly and i can only imagine how tough it's got to be. RIP Cory, you are missed :(

But a huge THANK YOU to Gwar for continuing this tour to honor Cory and show your love for your fans. Wonderful evening and my son woke up and was telling his mom all about it (with multiple curious looks to me from my wife). Glad it was an all age show and i was able to take him. Already looking forward to the next trip here!

Thats funny about the Mayhem thing but kinda random to have him pick on Warped Tour.

ShatteredFlame 11-17-2011 09:56 AM

How long was the show overall?

brutal_descent 11-17-2011 10:20 AM

Definitely a possibility with Hatebreed seeing as how their first European festival is Bloodstock, which starts August 9th - half a week after Mayhem finishes up. Hmm.

BloodoftheKings 11-17-2011 12:09 PM

:lol: Did Dave think that fake Mayhem flyer that listed Lou Reed & Metallica as the headliner was real?

noahj 11-17-2011 12:17 PM

lol, that's what i was thinking about too when he mentioned Metallica and Lou Reed :)

i did find it interesting he mentioned Slipknot and Hatebreed specifically. he might have just pulled those band names out his ass....but it was funny as well.

Warbeast played for 30 minutes
ETID for 45
Gwar about 1hr 40 minutes i believe

i also got tons of funny 8 year old boy jokes/questions/remarks i can share from my son during the show. but probably my 2 favorites were...

#1. Dad Oderus has the biggest and ugliest penis i have ever seen. To which i reply, "son, how many penis have you seen in your 8 years besides yours?"

#2. Dad, i smell a funny smelling cigarette.

I hardly know anything about Gwar. I know about their over the top "theatrics" which are very interesting :eyes:

Anyways, my question is do they ever play Fishfuck? That's the only Gwar song I know and it was pretty funny. Just asking because I haven't seen it on the last few sets or reviews posted here.

No. Gwar themselves hate that album and they rarely play anything from it (though they are doing jagermonsta on this tour).

these set lists make me psyched I'm finally making it out to see GWAR this run. it's awesome you took your kid, I was 8 when I went to see Kiss (which was my first concert) and this is kind of like that only much more metal! haha
