Another excellent show from Queensryche. Getting to hear "The Whisper" live is definitely a highlight for me. The sound was much better at the House of Blues than it was a week ago at Pop's in St. Louis. The mix was very good. They were even later hitting the stage than in St. Louis so I am guessing that is why "Take Hold of the Flame" was dropped. (Standing around in front of the stage for 2 hours just sucks. And then getting one less song to boot!) I read that it was added back in Friday night. The rest of the set was the same except for a small change in the order. Scott had 2 drum sets this time. He played a smaller kit located center stage during the first set. That kit was removed during the intermission and he played a larger kit during the Mindcrime set. The smaller stage at Pop's probably did not allow for this setup. By staying at the HOB Hotel we were able to bypass the line, which is pretty cool. So we were front and center this time. The proximity to the stage and the better sound made for a much better overall concert experience than at Pop's. It was an outstanding show and I would see it again if I could.

The world weighs on my shoulders but what am I to do?
