CONCERT REVIEW: The Fillmore at Irving Plaza, NYC, Dec 2008. Saw them from the front row at the end of their first U.S. tour. Their opening act was fellow shock rockers Lizzy Borden. I didn't know Lizzy but was thrilled with their show ... how could I not be after Lizzy jumped in the audience with a blood drenched axe. Sadly, I was more thrilled with them than I was Lordi. It wasn't that Lordi didn't do a good show. It was great, but they aren't very physical on stage ... probably due to their clunky costumes ... so it's a rather simple show with some gimmicky props pulled out periodically. & by the end of the show watching the sweat pour out of the seams of their costumes onto their instruments brings a new definition to suffering for your art. Also, near the end guitarist Amen started sticking out his tongue at Sebastian Bach of Skid Row who was standing two heads to my side.
