Apocalyptica -- Albuquerque, NM -- September 6th, 2010

First show in a small venue here in New Mexico, it was alright (the venue). Sound was similar to what I was used to back in AZ. Anyways on to the show and setlists.

Evaline was not that great imo. Dir en Grey on the other hand put on an awesome show. Kyo's vocals were kinda under the mix and that kind of made me sad since he makes the band imo. But they were awesome, sounded just liked the albums. The set is what I can remember, wasnt positive on all song names.

Sa Bir
Red Soil
Agitated Screams of Maggots
Gaika, Chinmoku Ga Nemuru Koro
Hageshisha To, Kono Mune No Naka De Karamitsuita Shekunetsu No Yami
Rotting Root
Inward Scream
Dozing Green
The Final
Reiketsu Nariseba

Apocalyptica was a very good show! Been wanting to see them for a couple years now and I was not disappointed (for the most part). Pettru wasn't feeling well for most of the show and he disappeared for most of the set near the end. They changed up the set due to this, and even asked the crowd to request a song. Suprisingly he pointed in my general direction and i was only one of two people to scream a song name (one said Freebird...) and i yelled Fight Fire with Fire (i know they knew how to play it) so Eicca, Paavo and Mikko busted it out. It was amazing. Life Burns also was not an initial part of the set but was improvised. Sadly they did not do Inquisition Symphony because of Pettru's health. However, Pettru did come back for Hall of the Mountain King and ended up going to the hospital after the show. He was able to walk out to the ambulance so he should be fine. Anyways here is the set.

Wherever I May Roam
At the Gates of Manala
End of Me
I'm Not Jesus
Master of Puppets
Last Hope
Fight Fire with Fire
Seek and Destroy
Life Burns!
I Don't Care
Hall of the Mountain King
