How was your experience?
I guess I should have listened to the new album before I went to the concert. They were good, but not what I expected. I was hoping they'd play more of their older songs that I loved like 1979 and Perfect...which was the reason I fell in love with them to begin with back in the day. They didn't play either of those, and the new stuff was very hardcore metal sounding, which I couldn't really get into. Billy's voice still sounds amazing, but they did too many extended guitar riffs. Overall, they still sound great, but it just wasn't my cup of tea, and I missed hearing the old stuff.
