Springfield, IL gave the Building Empires Tour a much better reception than Nashville, TN had (see previous review). Warrior Soul was a better opening act than Suicidal Tendencies. If you have never heard Warrior Soul you should check them out. They are from Detroit and have their own lyrical twist on politics and life on the streets. I think that they only released 4 CD's of which the first 3 are very good.

I was able to work my way forward during this show to a fairly good vantage point just a few rows from the stage. This show featured 3 songs that were not played earlier in the tour: Another Rainy Night, Della Brown, and Last Time In Paris. It was cool that they changed the set list around a little bit. Another Rainy Night was good live. The band did seem a little tired, as this was towards the end of the American leg of the tour. This was still an excellent show even though the acoustics in the smaller arena were not as good. Mindcrime still blew me away!

The world weighs on my shoulders but what am I to do?
