Sun 27 May – Queensrÿche
A few days ago, I attended my first Queensrÿche
show. I have been a fan of the band for quite a few years, but for some reason I never spent the time/money to see one of their live shows (something which I now regret).
The first interesting point was the location of this venue. Whoever's idea it was to open a concert venue right in the middle of fucking Disneyland
needs to die a slow, horrible death. After about an hour of driving around, I realized that I actually had to park in the "Mickey and Friends" garage and then walk to the venue, which I found to be borderline ridiculous. At any rate, I eventually found the venue (and then stood in the wrong line for another 30 minutes, not a great start to the evening so far) and waited for the show to start. We were let in at 8:00pm, and an hour later, the lights dimmed and Queensrÿche
took the stage.
There was some argument among the crowd as to whether they would be performing the same setlist as previous shows…
