Ultimate Set List & Tour: Killswitch Engage w/ Jesse & Howard and Darkest Hour

Audioeclectica_LOGO.png

The first Dream Tour and Ultimate Set List I made was pretty amazing. The line up of Mastodon, Neurosis and O’Brother would be a tour for the ages. After that, I made a list of others that I thought would be pretty amazing. What I present to you is a dream tour that would be absolutely awesome. Imagine if this ever did come to fruition… Killswitch Engage tours with Jesse Leach AND Howard Jones. Each singer gets their own set of songs from the albums they were on, and then at the end they join each other for a few songs. Well, here is the set list that I came up with, the one I’d want to see, along with Darkest Hour as their opener and their set list. Enjoy!!

Ultimate Set List: The Doors

static1.squarespace.jpg

The Doors are in my top 5 favorite bands of all time. They are groundbreaking and beyond inspiring and influential. Over the years I’ve read so many books about them, watched documentaries, and even gone to see them individually and when they would play shows with Ian Astbury of The Cult as their singer. Naturally, one would assume that I have made my “Ultimate Set List” for The Doors years ago, which I did but, in order to fit within my guidelines for this category, I’ve had to shorten it a bit. With that in mind I present to you my “Ultimate Set List” for The Doors.

As usual here are the rules:

Rule 1: What line up of the band would it be

Rule 2: Where would you want to see the show

Rule 3: maximum 25 songs (In order of how the set should go)
Lineup: Jim Morrison, Robby Krieger, John Densmore, and Ray Manzarek

Venue: The Whisky A Go Go

Ultimate Set List & Tour: Mastodon with Neurosis & O’Brother

I had an idea recently to expand upon the Ultimate Set List category. I thought that if I were to put together a “dream tour” scenario into the aether, that maybe, just maybe, it might come true. The first one I came up with involves Mastodon, Neurosis and the very awesome, O’Brother. All three of these bands have released fantastic new albums. Mastodon’s Emperor Of Sand is well on it’s way to my album of the year for 2017. O’Brother put out Endless Light, one of the top 5 albums of 2016 and, Neurosis, well they continue to put out quality albums with their newest, 2016’s Fires Within Fires.

thrice-tickets_06-04-16_17_56562cf7102e6.jpg

Ever since Thrice released their new album To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere, I’ve come back around and am really digging on the band again. Perhaps their time away was much needed, as they returned with an album that really shows depth, growth and maturity. Thrice has always been a great live band. Interestingly enough, the only way I have ever been able to enjoy songs from their Alchemy Index albums are on the Live at the House of Blues album. What I have for you today is my Ultimate Set List for Thrice.
