Review of Pantera from June 22, 2001 in Philadelphia, PA USA
Hellbound 5 Minutes Alone Slaughtered Goddamn Electric War Nerve Becoming Revolution Is My Name Mouth4War Strength Beyond Strength I'll Cast A Shadow/25 Years Fucking Hostile This Love Primal Concrete Sledge Cowboys From Hell Walk (Encore) I think the above order is correct - same as the first show on the tour. The Philly show was great. Not 100% on the exact order of the songs, but this was the first time I saw them close with something besides Cowboys from Hell. Phil did say 3 or 4 times that it would be the last time we see them for a while. Craig's info was definitely good. One thing Phil did say was that the Philly crowd blew away the NY crowd - but he probably says that at each show. The crowd went crazy during becoming, and at the egging of Phil, went even crazier during I'll Cast a Shadow. Vinnie sounded great. Maybe it was my perspective - I stayed out of the pit for a change, and sat on the first level, last row, straight on. Great view, and it definitely was different than being on the floor among the masses. Phil didn't seem too fucked up or anything, and didn't do too much of his ranting. Overall, an EXCELLENT show. Those of you who have Pantera coming up, definitely have a great show to look forward to. They definitely seem to be tight, and are doing a better job than in 2000 with the new songs, since they've finally played them a bunch I guess. Slayer was also excellent. I had never seen them except at Ozzfest - where I wasn't too impressed, but the grass in Camden sucks to see and hear a show from.
