To be perfectly honest, I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this show. I mean, I love Korn's earlier albums, but the newer ones hasn't really caught on that much. So, needless to say, it was with mixed feelings I chose to see them this cold January evening. Then again, I never got around to go and see them back in day, so this was a perfect opportunity to correct that mistake.

They used some weird, electronic sounds as an intro, which confused me a bit, since I was of the belief that Korn always started their shows with Jonathan Davis playing the bagpipe. The confusion didn't last long though, as they shortly started pounding hard at us with Ball Tongue. What an excellent way of opening the show! The band was really going at it, and the crowd went wild right from the get go. The setlist throughout was a very well-made mix of newer songs and a lot of the old classics. The aforementioned bagpipe came in later in the set, and we were also treated to such goodies as A.D.I.D.A.S., Faget and Freak On A Leash (which had a nice little sing-a-long part), among others. They should consider the ending though, as there were many people who left after hearing Blind, thus missing out on Got The Life, which put an end to this evening, spent in the company of a band who really knows how to put on a great show, wiping the other bands clean of the slate.

A thing well worth mentioning as well was the amazing light show they gave us, which really contributed to the overall effect of the concert. Something which didn't contribute on the other hand was the sound, which definitely was left wanting.
