Dissolving and reforming so quickly I seem only to flicker.
Holy motherfucking shit. Rammstein came on stage during Lateralus and burnt shit!
The show itself was pretty fucking good. The sound was spot on and the setlist really nice. I would have kept updating but the batteries on my phone ran flat.
Set went for 90 minutes, they appeared to throw the curfew out the window which was amazing. Maynard said Shlyer a fair bit, I think at least 3 songs featured that...he was generally pretty talkative too.
Musically, Flood was a big highlight for me, having not seen it before, and Third Eye was great to see again. I always love hearing Aenema, tonights version was amazing. Justin seemed pretty pumped and was urging the crowd on.
No Orion during Lateralus, instead Maynard welcomed Christoph from Rammstein to the stage. I expected it to be the usual drum solo, which it was to start with, and then Till came out on stage in his full Rammstein costume including the light in his mouth, with a flame thrower in hand. He the fired it over the crowd a few times. Following that, he fired at Justin a couple of times, and then Adam, both of whom moved backwards pretty damn quick. Not sure how much if it was planned but they looked genuinely concerned. Till then set fire to the drum kit, which admirably Christoph kept playing for some time. Eventually they kicked it over, and Danny came down from behind his kit to give it a few kicks as well! Bloody amazing and I don't think we'll be seeing that on stage again!
Overall, it was a fantastic set - I have a hard time separating it from the Melbourne show. Musically I think Melbourne was better, but in many ways the Adelaide show was much more memorable!
Maynard was pretty good vocally - didn't sing the end of Vicarious, but was otherwise on song. Nailed the scream in Flood without any problems.
Ran into Rynne again in the crowd, who remembered me from Melbourne which was nice. Also got to meet Shelee as well, who said she loved the Melbourne shirt that I was wearing, and had a hard time getting one herself!
