09/28/2004 - Minneapolis, MN - The Quest

Went to this show? Post your review...

The things that I've loved the things that I've lost
The things I've held sacred that I've dropped
I won't lie no more you can bet
I don't want to learn what I'll need to forget

Well that show kicked some ass!

I think I'll make this brief because I know there are other people out there who write better reviews.

Basically Submersed came out at 6:30. They were all right. Many of the songs sounded the same (since I hadn't heard them before) and the singer looked like a punked out Justin Timberlake. Their lead guitarist is quite awesome though. I thoroughly enjoyed his talent. They played about 6 songs.

Then Crossfade came out around 7:20 and rocked the place. They did a great job and played over half their album. They said that Minneapolis/St. Paul was where they sold the most albums so they thanked us for that.

Then, finally, Alter Bridge came out about 8:30. They were really awesome except you could barely hear Myles (if at all). They were really loose and really relaxed - much different than the Creed show I saw in early 2002 (although late 2002 they were pretty loose).

At one point Myles was making some jokes and making a sales pitch for buying their mechandise so Willy (Brian) could get a haircut and Mark could get a wig. Then Mark comes up and says, "and Myles needs a penis!" So the guys were pretty relaxed.

They played every song from the album with the acoustic version of ILM and the Deep Purple cover. I was hoping they would play Save Me, but I guess they didn't feel like doing that tonight.

I thought about waiting out by their bus with a bunch of other people, but I couldn't really hear anything (the obvious post-concert deafness) and I still had a 30 minute drive with work waiting for me at home (and this review to write).

I got to stand about 8 people (rows) back from the stage. I was able to see their faces during the concert! Overall it was a great experience, but I wished they would have turned the guitars down just a tad so we could hear Myles.

Good show though.

Yeah, sometimes the vocals are diminished when you are that close, but it's usually worth it, hehehe. Thanks for the cool review!
