I saw this tour in SF. It's one of the most memorable shows I've ever been to. Both Iced Earth and In Flames were great. Plus, I got to see In Flames before they went to complete shit.
As for Anders' comments, I remember reading about it when it first happened. First of all, I have my doubts about Jon treating them badly because they're from Sweden. I truly believe that is a crock of shit. Why would he talk shit about Europeans? He credits Europe for giving Iced Earth their break. He loves European crowds. One of his best friends is Hansi Kursch...
When I was a member of the now defunct In Flames fan club, Anders would post on the forums occasionally. When Jesper left the band, I made a comment about how "Jesper is In Flames, like Jon Schaffer is Iced Earth." Boy, he did not like that one.
