I had to tell the record store here that I bought the tickets from that they were in fact selling tickets for this show. It was a fantastic concert though, sound and setlist were good and Barney came out afterwards and talked to people and signed the CD booklets I had brought.
When I saw them a few weeks ago, it was a bad vibe, short setlist, bad sound, everything that was good before was not, I have already reviewed it here so I will leave it at that. Hope they can get a proper headlining tour again with good sound soon.
Damn, sorry to hear that man. I feel you on that one. You're two experience sound very strikingly similar to my review of the both shows. At least it's good to know that you weren't the only one that got shafted with a shitty short set turned even shorter that was plagued with technical sound problems through out the performance. I also forgot to mention that some douche bag threw a filled up water bottle right smack dab into Mitch's face while he was singing a song off the new album so i'm pretty sure that just left a bad taste in his mouth. I wouldn't blame him if he didn't give a fuck anymore about the show at that point because that was just straight up disrespectful and who ever threw that waterfall should have got their ass canned out the building..
Hopefully Napalm Death just go on a proper tour next year by themselves. The first time I saw them will always go down as one of the best shows ever. The second time around felt like a half assed sneak preview filled with god awful sound problems.
