I guess Al has some kind of problem with his old songs. Maybe they remind him of bitterness with Paul Barker, who knows? Either way every set list since then has sucked hard.
Agreed 100%. I'm not a huge Ministry fan and that show was my first of theirs. I was so disappointed that we got the set we did (especially having Burton sing your classics). If Meshuggah hadn't opened, I would have wanted my money back.
