Down -- Memphis, TN -- May 25th, 2012

New Daisy Theatre
Memphis, TN

Black Tusk & Haarp opened. Both bands were good but I'm not familiar with their song titles yet.

My 13th time seeing Down and this was their best performance. The sound was stellar. The Trower cover owned and blew away the cover Opeth recorded. Philip had more energy than ever before, he jumped around like he did in the Far Beyond Driven era. The band sounded flawless. The youtube recordings don't do the new song Misfortune Teller any justice at all. It sounds awesome & the band played it all the way through in it's entirety without missing a step. It was the first time since 07 that there was not a song from Down III: Over The Under in the setlist.

VIP Soundcheck:
Bridge Of Sighs - Robin Trower cover (Awesome!!! Windstein & Keenan nailed it)

Lysergik Funeral Procession
Hail The Leaf
Ghosts Along The Mississippi
Jim Dandy - Black Oak Arkansas cover 1/3 of the song
Pillars Of Eternity
Temptations Wings - Vocalist from BOA brought onstage to talk about how he likes Down
Underneath Everything
New Orleans Is A Dying Whore
Eyes Of The South
Misfortune Teller - New song from upcoming e.p.
Stone The Crow
Bury Me In Smoke

Easily one of my favorite Down shows!!!
1-13 Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals
