Alice in Chains/VR -- Concord, CA -- September 14, 2007
Excuse me if this ends up being a little nit-picky/biased,
and if you have any more info on songs, please feel free to let me know
Cool show, but lawn tix come out to about 45 a piece; I wouldn't pay to see Velvet Revolver
Since ticket sales were less than enough to fill the seats at the pavilion, they handed out free upgrades from lawn to 3rd tier seats and I was able to weasel my way up to the front of the section.
Alice In Chains:
We Die Young
Dam That River
Rain When I Die
Angry Chair >
Man in the Box
William Duvall is the best you could ask for at this point, I think his stage presence is just a bit generic and a little less than genuine, but he sounds great.
The band was near perfect, the only problem was that Jerry fell behind on a couple solos but recovered with no problem. Also, Duvall played rhythm guitar on a couple songs, but you couldn't hear it at all.
There were some cool lighting effects and video clips going on during some of the set, which gave the show a good finishing touch.
Velvet Revolver: I didn't get Libertad, so bear with me
2 new songs from Libertad
Sucker Train Blues
Do it for the Kids
-Short acoustic set
Interstate Love Song
Another Libertad song
She Builds Quick Machines
Fall To Pieces
and I.....LEFT EARLY
IMO, Alice blew away VR...they are very overrated, and the sounds wasnt nearly as good, Wyland's mic had way too much upper mids in the eq which was pretty irritating
