I have just arrived home from the opening show of the Minutes to Midnight 2008 tour which is, I'm happy to say, in my home town of Omaha, Ne. I would post the set-list but I think it's pretty similar to the Euro ones and it'll be in my digital package so I can get it correct. Highlights: Crawling (Full Reanimation intro) No More Sorrow (New guitar intro along with sampled sounds backing the military snare) Points of Authority (Petrified Rap, Drum machine intro, 2nd verse goes back to the drum machine beat, New extended outro with new chords) Shadow of the Day (Chester on guitar, Brad back up top to play the solo) A Place For My Head (Tremolo-picked guitar intro) Bleed it Out (New Intro, Extended drum solo with no instruments playing, Extended outro) What I've Done (Crazy new programmed intro) (Music video plays on 5 screens) 5:00pm Arrive to arrange the Meet and Greet. Picture taken to put up on the big screen. Received LPU Meet and Greet band and 30-page tour book. 7:30pm We miss Chiodos for the Meet and Greet. There were no pictures to be taken or signatures. Verizon took the pictures and the posters were pre-signed that day. The order was Mike (with mohawk), Rob (with shaggy hair), Chester, and Phoenix. Mike said to me, "And you have on the best shirt by the way!!" which validated the teasing I got wearing a Fort Minor shirt to a LP concert. Joe and Brad were behind the curtain peeking through, which I didn't know until I saw my pictures. The poster (signed), picture and a wallet were picked up after banging on the tour bus after the show. 9:00pm - Coheed was done and LP is on. The setup is crazy. There's a central platform accessible by stairs which is used a lot in the show for solos. There were 5 giant see-through screens in a pentagon formation above the stage. They had string attached to them on all four corners so they rotated in every direction, raised and lower, and moved back and forth. Lots of visuals on them. Two LCD screens on either side displayed what the cameramen were seeing on stage. Rob's drum set-up and Mt. Hahn moved up and down so when songs like My December played they would descend out of view. There was also a runway leading into the middle of the crowd for Chester. 11:00pm - Concert over. Double encore. Went out to bang on the tour bus to get my Meet and Greet stuff. Picture taken by Verizon with 2 other LPU memebers in front of the bus.
