This is one of the few shows where both the openers were impressive. Drowning Pool started the show, and these guys rock. The singer was wandering all over the place, and it was their first show on this tour, so they looked extremely excited to be there, and it came out during their set. Lots of energy. During one song the singer proceeded to bang a shovel on the stage (we dont like snow either, but really, its okay!). Then Boy Hits Car came out, and these guys are a weird mix of Caroline’s Spine, Disturbed and the Tea Party (yes, these three bands!). But they made it work! The singer was a Zack de la Rocha look-alike, but didnt sound like him at all. The rest of the band sounded pretty cool too, almost very song had an acoustic guitar and then would kick in to some real heavy stuff. During the last song the lead singer did a stage dive! Then after another intermission, Finger Eleven. Much better than the Kitchener show to me, they played a healthy mix of both albums, doing a really cool improv on Tip, and getting the entire crowd involved during Suffocate. Closed with Above, then did Stay and Drown and Drag You Down for the encore. The crowd actually wasnt too bad either, which made it that much more enjoyable.
