It was fun :D

I've only slept a very few hours so gonna keep it short, but the things to remember about this one was the return of Lisa on backings for some songs (Arms, Corrosion, Temple, maybe some more?) and the fact that Andrew seemed happy as a schoolboy because of that (how he picked up her mikestand that was at the Ben-side of the stage at first and then moved it to the middle of the stage right next to his own mic). He seemed rather happy all over actually ;D
They've shuffeled the songs around a bit (Vision Thing halfway the set, Misirlou as instrumental in the main set and not as encore) and we got Something Fast. Moshpit felt a bit weird, but great to see some good friends there...

Late show, good vibe! As stated before, Lisa back on stage! In the beginning she didn't add that much to the songs because she was too low in the mix, but in the end it turned out good. TOL sounded like '92 IMO, cool! Ow, and I loved Kiss The Karpet.

Nice to see so many familiar people and to meet new ones. Since my opponent withdrew, I won the "Ugliest Sisters Shirt Competition" by far last night ;-) I had a top nite out.

Btw, Europe were a decent support act ;-)

Thanks for sharing. Unfortunate angle makes it look as if :von: is picking his nose on one of the pics. Not his week for photos after the scary grimace the other day.

Hard to add something to that, K. I didn't even notice when Lisa got on stage nor did I hear her singing. But as soon as she stood in the middle I could hear her clearly, not too loud and not too silent. Her voice and appearance was a nice addition to the sound and the atmosphere. Anyway, this final gig of the tour had something especially lovely about it.
Can't complain about the crowd, however. Everybody seemed to just fully enjoy ... ;D ... me included (apart from Dominion which I often do not like. This time, the Mother Russia part made up for the rest of it, though). Also I found it very nice to meet so many people there and some for the first time... :D ... * greetings to everybody. Meeting up was a good part of the allover pleasure ...

Thanks for the pictures link and to Paul as well ... :notworthy: ;D :notworthy: ... wonderful.
As to Europe ... I thought, I'd give them a listen, but uahh ... stuff like "Carrie" or whatever that was called is just unbearable ... :urff: :lol: ...

Btw, here's the complete setlist (transported from poison-door-net) ...

Got some good advices from Sisters-Pics about camera and some tricks, so it was quite easy to get some good shots... and some luck to hit the buttom in the right moment :innocent:
