Loaded -- Snoqualmie, WA -- December 19th, 2009

The Seattle area has had five police officers murdered since Halloween. Last night, a local radio station staged a benefit concert called "KISW Salutes the Shield." In addition to the ticket sales ($20), there were lots of auction items up for bid (autographed guitars, drum heads, cymbals, Seahawks & Mariners items, Duff music lesson, etc.) and Queensryche donated all of the proceeds from their merchandise sales to the Lakewood Police Independent Guild ( It was a fun night of music, but certainly bittersweet and hopefully a lot of money was raised for the families (the Lakewood officers alone had a combined nine children).

The Loaded setlist is probably 95% + correct - I cobbled it together from lyric notes and previous setlists. The one song I couldn't figure out was introduced as "Is She Really Going Out with Him" but it certainly wasn't a Joe Jackson cover.
