Godsmack -- Regina, Saskatchewan -- August 29th, 2011

Before I start my review I just wanted to say that it is a 5 hour drive from where I live to Regina. To top that off I wasn't feeling that well that day and it was a +30C (86F) day outside. So, 5 hour drive + me feeling sick + crazy hot day = me not having too fun of a time. I mainly went because my friend paid for the tickets and it's his favorite band and I'd want him to do the same for me. I'm just glad we had stands seats and not on the floor because I don't think I would have been able to take it. I should also note that the sets are from setlist.fm so I can't vouch for the accuracy 100%. Anyways, on with the review:

THE RED JUMPSUIT APPARATUS:
Fall From Grace
In Fate's Hands
Reap
Guitar Solo (Josh Burke)
Your Guardian Angel
You Better Pray
False Pretense
Face Down

I honestly didn't know what to think about these guys going in since I never really bothered to listen to them before but honestly for a band of young kids they aren't that bad. Nothing I'd really brag about seeing though unless they hit it ultra famous one day.

GODSMACK:
Cryin' Like a Bitch
The Enemy
Forever Shamed
Straight Out of Line
Awake
The Oracle
Keep Away
Speak
Love Hate Sex Pain
Voodoo
Batalla de los Tambores (With bits of Back in Black, War Pigs, Creeping Death and a Led Zeppelin song I couldn't identify)
Whatever
ENCORE:
Serenity
I Stand Alone

Godsmack was pretty good. They are talented guys for sure, but honestly hearing them play a longer set their songs do start to blend together. The drum duel was really cool though and it was fun singing along with War Pigs and Creeping Death. My friend fucking loved it though so I guess that's the important thing. This was also one of the tamest crowds I had ever seen at a metal show with a general admission floor with only one small pit for most of the show until towards the end. Also, I should note that the arena wasn't even close to half ways full which is kind of sad considering the Brandt Centre in Regina is quite a bit smaller then the CUC in Saskatoon.

I'll have some videos up later on my Youtube channel if anyone is interested. Also if anyone else happened to be there I'd appreciate it if you could confirm the accuracy of the set.
