Opener: Lamb Of God, Children Of Bodom, Mastodon, Thine Eyes Bleed
Label: Def American Recordings

The show in my area would be at The Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford NJ, and tonight it was labeled as the “theatre”. When they do this, areas of the venue are cordoned off by large black curtains. These drapes make the venue just a little more intimate. I first experienced this during the last Slipknot tour and was amazed at this aspect of the place with this setting being used.

When you have five bands performing this is the risk you take and a venue is under different restrictions from a nightclub so that was that.
