Tour: Subliminal Verses Tour 2005
Country, Arena: USA, Illnois
Review: Ok the concert was in illinois at the allstate arena on march 11th and the support bands "shadows fall" and "lamb of god" were there. Shadows fall was ok by performence and lamb of god was fucking the shit! Reason for shadows fall was because the set for them wasnt all that good, but lamb of god's was pretty fucking cool. Now being from illinois we are a fucking crazy state and well the weed was passed and beers were thrown.
Slipknot were fucking awsome! The set was very differnt but it was the best i have ever seen. While the band was "swiching" slipknot took a little longer because of the wicked set. A white curtain was dropped and they had a projecter of film footage and old performances, but when they were ready they let the projecter go away and pointed a stagelight at the curtain and mick, james, and corey were a shadow behind it. They opened with "before i forget" and it was awsome. The performances by all bands were all great but slipknot was of course the best. They played over a range of 15-20 songs all really good and they played some people have never heard. Also it was the taylor's 1st anniversary. Corey said in quote " are you motherfuckers ready to make history, (crowd cheers fuck yes!) you are the 1st to hear this song live" and to be honest i forgot which song it was. Joey did a solo that was the shit and it was tight as hell. There was about 8,000 to 9,000 people there and knowing white people are crazy... We were. Shawn sadly wasnt there because his wife is sick with somthing, but it was still the shit! Corey said "you motherfuckers want to help sing a song with me (even though most of us were already singing with him) duality...Now this song is always played on radios around the world but we rocked on and sung with him. The weed passing was like breathing. No one got hurt really and no one got kicked out or in trouble. And the rating i give this concert is....Sic!!! The boys were the shit and to all of us maggots still will be the shit.
