First off i'd like to say thanks to you guys for coming to Albuquerque for the Edge's Not So Silent Night!

But what i'm wondering is why you guys weren't the feature band. You obviously stole the show and made an amazing performance but were only allowed 20-30 minutes on stage :( Army of Anyone doesn't even compare to the energy you guys had on the stage and from the crowd, i wish you'd gotten the feature spot (which to be honest was what everyone was expecting from the concert given the way they adveritised it on the radio).

Regardless, you made an amazing performance. It was filled with energy, amazing music and most importantly, god. I love you guys and hope you come back soon, there's a lot of people i know that would love a skillet-featured or even skillet only concert!

And i'm wondering... what were your opinions on the concert? Ranging from other artists to time, etc.

I was at this show!!!!! ;D Yeah, I really thought Skillet would be headlining too. :( I was disappointed they only played for 30 minutes (actually 25...John told me afterwards that they were supposed to play "The Last Night" but he forgot it!), but it was still amazing! Here are my pics from the show:

None of the others turned out very good. :(

what bands were at the concert? i know army of anyone's members were in a popular band. i cant remember who right now, but it is a little suprising that skillet wasnt headlining.

Army of Anyone is two bands put together--Stone Temple Pilots & Filter. Both of those bands were pretty big in the 90's.

But Skillet should have been headlining. The first two bands were local (they sucked), the third was the Plain White T's (little kid emo, they also sucked), then Skillet, then AoA last.

Those pictures are kind of dark. Did the venue have bad lighting or were you not using the flash? That white guitar Korey has is really pretty.

You're lucky for them to play two shows in your area within a month. I'm lucky if they play two shows in my area in the same year. :P

The lighting was pretty bad. I posted a video of Korey singing Comatose on youtube...click below to watch but don't turn the volume up too loud.

Korey didn't sing on that track on the album. But I guess that doesn't ban her from singing it.

She does actually on the album, just not the same as she does live. You have to listen REALLY HARD to hear her on the album. But she sings alot of the songs live that she doesn't do on the album like Better Than Drugs & The Older I Get.

If you remove headphones half-way it takes out the lead vocal tracks and you can hear that John sings the harmonies on the album. I didn't hear Korey's voice though.

That concert was awesome! We got to meet them before the show, and they were really nice. Does anyone know if they are coming to New Mexico again?

Cool, you were at that show? It was amazing. :) I heard they'll be in Glorieta September 2, but it's not confirmed on their dates yet so I don't know. Keep your eyes open for that. ;)

Ya, the show was GREAT! That would be really cool if they came to Glorieta, because I live like an hour away from there.
