Queensryche -- Seattle, WA -- September 11th, 2005

TOUR: Hurricane Katrina Benefit Show
VENUE: The Showbox -- Seattle, WA
DATE: September 11, 2005

While I didn't attend this show, it was broadcast online, and I listened to the whole thing as it happened, as well as recording it.

While in the overall scheme of things it's not a big deal, I still think it's cool that Queensryche arranged to play an unscheduled date before their third leg of the O:MC tour kicked off. Queensryche not only donated their time, but also a lot of merchandise (100% of the money made from it going to victims, same with tickets.) I think it's a pretty cool thing for them to do. Helped out, no doubt, by the fact they did this in their hometown.

Whatever the cause it was still a pretty cool show, even if I only listened from online. They played for about 1 hour 15 minutes:

1. The Whisper
2. Empire
3. Another Rainy Night
4. Best I Can
5. Sign of The Times
6. Take Hold of The Flame
7. Open
8. Walk in The Shadows
9. Last Time in Paris
10. Silent Lucidity
11. Della Brown
12. Operation:Mindcrime
13. Breaking The Silence
14. I Don't Believe In Love
15. Jet City Women
2/24 - The Foundry
