Pops in Sauget, IL
Down was awesome. It was the day before Bower's B-Day so they sung happy B Day to him. The band was great as usual. Ponykiller and In Solitude were ok too. The crowd for this show was the perhaps the best, most intense crowd I have seen for any metal show. Thats over 200 + live acts. It was without a doubt the best crowd of the 15 Down concerts I have attended. You could tell the band was blown away by the intensity. Anselmo gave props to the crowd after every song. None of the starting the song over with the "I'm watching you like a hawk" business tonight. He said it was the best crowd he had seen in years.
Lysergic Funeral Procession (complete with intro)
Pillars of Eternity
New Orleans is a Dying Whore
Happy B-Day to Jim (with Kirk's special ending about Jim's small dick and big tits along with a Bower - Power chant from the crowd)
Ghosts along the Mississippi
Eyes of the South
Stone the Crow
Bury Me In Smoke (Walk Away)
What an amazing show. I went to the Louisville show on 9/19 a few days later but the crowd paled in comparison so bad its not worth my time to review. The Sauget crowd was rabid!!!
1-13 Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals
