Sound: Chester and Mike were great. They did everything perfectly. Brad, Joe, and Chester used PRS and Ibanez guitars, while Phoenix used Ernie Ball basses. The sound was really awesome, and the entire audience was blown away when they covered Sweet Child O Mine. As for the 2nd stage bands, their sets were cool and they sounded great as well. // 10
Perfomance: Everyone was having a good time. We were singing along to every song. If you have the Live In Texas CD, they played mostly that, except they also played Nobody's Listening, Breaking The Habit, their cover of Sweet Child O Mine, and their cover of Nine Inch Nails's "Wish. " They also played Step Up and It's Going Down. And they didn't play Papercut. The weirdest thing that happened during the show was two guys came out in bikinis and started walking around the stage. Chester was all, "How fucking disturbing was that? I think it would be better if you didn't know Who that was." (I think one of them was Bert McKracken of The Used.) When they played Breaking the Habit, they showed the video on the giant screen TVs, and they thanked everyone for voting it Viewer's Choice on the MTV awards. The stage was decorated with stuff that would sort of look like the art of Meteora. // 10
Overall Impression: This show was in Mountain View, CA, USA, at the Shoreline Amphitheatre on Sept 5, 2004. For the openers, No Warning was really cool on the second stage. The lead singer shot a squirt gun full of tequila into the crowd. Funeral For A Friend had the largest fan base of any of the second stage bands, and they were kick ass! I missed Less Than Jake because I didn't know when they were playing and I was at the second stage when I found out when they were playing. I only got to see a little bit of The Used's set, but they were so good.
They played some stuff off their new album. Snoop Dogg had a pretty fun set, even though I respect HIM more as an actor than a musician. He invited tons of girls on stage and gave em backstage passes, "because they have backstage asses." Korn's set was one of the most awesome sets in the world. They played tons of stuff from all of their albums, and they also covered Word Up by Cameo and Another Brick In The Wall by Pink Floyd. Everyone was going crazy during Another Brick In The Wall. I loved everything about the show, except that I didn't get to see Less Than Jake. That sucked. They were giving away condoms like candy, and I got a few.
I got the tix for $20 because of a Father's Day Sale back in June in my area. The most unforgettable moments in the show were Linkin Park covering Sweet Child O Mine, Korn covering Another Brick In The Wall, the lead singer from No Warning helping out Funeral For A Friend on The Art Of American Football, FFAF's amazing moshpits, *shudders* the guys in bikinis during LP's set, some girls getting their tits tattooed, and the SoBe mixing station were cool. I would go back to that show in a second, mainly to catch Less Than Jake and to see more of The Used, but seeing as how it was Projekt Revolution's last stop, it woun't be possible. // 10
