Yeah, Cheap Trick played about 80 minutes with very little banter. They were all about kicking ass.

Styx on the other hand had a lot of onstage banter. Especially annoying was the new singer's stand up routine before Come Sail Away. He walked around with a mike and cracked really bad jokes, while singing lines from famous songs by classic bands and having the crowd finish them. It went on for way too long. And the "pay off" joke was starting Come Sail Away and having the crowd finish it. It was a long way to go for a non-joke.

I think Styx played maybe about 80 or 90 minutes. So, if they skipped all the nonsense, they could have played a few more tunes.
Ace Frehley - 4/5
Sunn O))) - 4/6
High On Fire + Abbath - 4/15
Nails + Dying Fetus - 4/16
