Slipknot: Canada (Ottawa), August 18, 2004
The Corel Center doesn't have very good acoustics, so the sound was not perfect. The audience was so hyped, the pits were incredible.

Sound: Wow, what a great show. Joey was amazing on the drums, and Corey is really a great singer, he put on a great performance. The guitarists used their signature models, the clown and the other percussionist played with bongos and toms. The Corel Center doesn't have very good acoustics, so the sound was not perfect, but it was okay by my standards. // 8

Perfomance: The audience was so hyped, the pits were incredible. They played at least 4 songs from every album. The best songs they played were: Disasterpiece, Wait And Bleed, Spit It Out, Surfacing, People - Shit and (Sic). There was one guy Who was in the stands and decided to run on the floor and 2 security guards were chasing HIM, and the guy lost his pants, they fell off. It was so hilarious. The scene was very well done, the lights were awesome and as far as the decoration goes, it was only the bands banner behind them. // 10

Overall Impression: Well the show was at the Corel Center in Ottawa, Canada. The openers were Hatebreed and they really put on a great perfomance. I love everything from the show, but a little pyro wouldn't have hurt them. The ticket was 40$ (can) and it was worth it. Girls were showing their tits to everybody, the beer was flowing, but the most unforgettable moment was when they played "Surfacing". I'd go to another gig of theirs if they come close to my region. // 10
