I saw Iced Earth at Best Buy Theater (used to be Nokia Theatre) in Times Square about a week or so ago. Man what a show. The setlist and the crowd atmosphere was like ten times better than when I saw them at the same venue two years ago. They played almost every song I wished they played back then.
On my way out, I was standing in front of the merch stand for a few minutes deciding if I wanted to spend the money on a shirt because it was an amazing show but the shirts they had I didn't really care for all that much. Before I came to a decision someone with three VIP passes came up to me and said they weren't going to use them so they gave me one for free. I ended up getting to meet the band, got them to sign the VIP pass, and got a poster flag and a shirt that is nicer than the ones they were selling all for free. I could have waited in line a second time to take a picture with the band, but I didn't have time, I just barely made it back to Penn Station for the last train as it is.
Going to see Primus at the Wellmont on Saturday now!
