The drum beat of There, There (Radiohead).



That was great. And Politik (Coldplay) too, actually.

Definitely agree this is a very very cool way to start a show. Has a nice build, and then when the guys come out to "For boston", it has a very sick energy! DKM are great!


I have to say Politik was also very very cool. I remember seeing them at the Orpheum theater in boston before the last tour got huge. And when the song started, the white lights seeemed to face the audience more than at later shows, and I remember being slightly blinded for the verse because of how bright they were, and then just as I got vision back the chorus would come back in with those bright white lights to blind me again! Then I remember each time after I saw them, the lights werent as harsh, and I could actually see the band!! Had to share that with you guys. Found that rather funny.

A Perfect Circle - "Vanishing"

When Maynard is behind the drape and all you see is his shifting silhouette beating the hell out of that drum...

Honorable Mentions:
Coldplay - "Politik"
The White Stripes - "Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground"
The Darkness - "Black Shuck"

I'm not what you'd call a Radiohead fan but I must say, 2+2=5 is superb, even though it wasn't actually the opener, but second song (on the boot that I have anyway).

I saw 2+2=5 open the show a couple times. Very Very cool. You have so much excitment built up for the show, that by the time
the song hits the chorus, the lights, the band and the energy take you out of control. Its quite cool!

actually, tonight the Manic Street Preachers opened with the opening song from Know Your Enemy, Found That Soul, which is pretty damned excellent as an out-and-out "we're here to rock" opener.

'Found That Soul' would indeed be a strong opener.

AFI opened with 'Miseria Cantare' which f-ing rocked. I also would like to cast a vote for 'Bulletproof Cupid' by Placebo. Both songs definitely set the tone for the evenings.

Agreed.


'Lost' by The Cure rocked my socks.
