    (First, I hope I posted this thread in the right area. If not, please move it. Thanks!)

    I just got back from Fort Minor's first show of their tour. For those of you who are going to show, you will love it. It was amazing. I don't really know how to put it into words to describe it but the energy they brought combined with the love the crowd had for Fort Minor was incredible. So, for those of you who hadn't planned on seeing them, should. I'll do my best to describe the show.

    To start the show off, Apathy and Celph Titled performed. Apathy did some great songs off 'Where's Your Album?!!' that included "It Takes A Seven Nation Army to Hold Us Back", "Represent", and "Personal Jesus". They also performed "Bloc Party", "All Night ", and "S.C.O.M." off the 'We Major' mixtape. They both did a acapella segment together (first Apathy, then Celph Titled) where they each ripped a long verse with no beat. Apathy's was about a dollar bill. Pure genious. Apathy also performed an incredible freestyle as their second to last thing where he was talking about some specific people in the crowd and even making fun of a few. After that, they did one last song together, and left.

    Little Brother was not there so they didn't perform. Cheapshot, who was the DJ for the whole show, stayed at the turn-tables for a 15-20 minute interlude where he played some songs and scratched.

    Now the part you all have been waiting for. Fort Minor's performance. If you don't want to know what happens, then I suggest you do not read on. (I don't remember the exact play list but I'll do my best.)
    The lights dimmed and the speakers started playing the extended into to "Remember the Name" (one with the instrumental loop from the original FM site). The violins kicked in and then S.O.B. came in followed by Mike. They couldn't have started the show with a better song. The second song they played "It's Goin' Down". Much better in a small club versus a large arena by far. Third, they played "Dolla". 4th was "In Stereo" and the crowd was feelin' it. After that, Mike did the whole, "Linkin Park speach" about people know them/their songs. Then he did the "In the End" remix as the 5th song. This was followed by a Styles of Beyond segment. They did "Mr. Brown" first, then followed by "Bleach". After those 2, they did a couple other songs off 'Megadef' (one was "Megadef", the other I don't remember the name, and one song I couldn't recognize for some reason) with different background music with Mike inserting a couple verses of his own into each of the songs (new verses not on any LP/FM recordings). It was good stuff. After the S.O.B. segment they played "Where'd You Go". They brought out Holly Brook and she sang. It was a pretty emotional song live. Mike and the crowd thanked Holly as she left then "Feel Like Home" kicked in. After that Mike said that they had one more song left. It was "Believe Me". But before it started, Mike brought out Bobo to play his part in the song on the percussion. This song was the biggest crowed pleaser to this point. And for those of you who don't like this song, you cannot help but to get into it. This song is great live. When the song was over, everone on stage left.

    The crowd did the standard "encore" and "one more song" chants. After about 5 minutes, "Numb/Encore" kicked in and they all came back out. They didn't perform it. They just said words from the chorus pretty much. After that they did "There They Go". The crowd loved it. Next, the played "High Road". It sounded amazing. And for the finale, they played "Petrified". This song was the only song where the whole crowd was literally jumping up and down. This song is a million times better live. Mike got into this song the most I noticed but the whole encore Mike was loaded with energy and on top of his game. S.O.B. was perfect too! Tak is amazing to watch and listen live. The way he performs his verses is very cool. Ryu was a beast as well. Mike gave a ton of hand shakes when the show ended and then went to sign a few more autographs.

    Set list to the best of my memory:
    Remember the Name
    It's Goin' Down
    Dolla
    In Stereo
    In the End Remix
    Mr. Brown
    Bleach
    3 S.O.B. song remixes with verses by Mike
    Where'd You Go (feat. Holly Brook)
    Feel Like Home
    Red to Black
    Believe Me (feat. Bobo)
    There They Go
    High Road
    Petrified

    This concert was one of the best I've ever seen. The crowd was deafining loud and the music was amazing live. Mike was incredible and has a much better stage presence now. I hope the rest of you who see them enjoy it and for those of who aren't going, I suggest you do.


    Just as a little side note, while Mike was signing my item, after I thanked him for doing the tour, I casually slid in the question on all of our minds. I asked him what he was going to announce at the Grammy's and he looked at me and laughed. I wasn't expecting an answer to start with, it was just for fun to see what he'd say, and I got just what I expected. He said, "You'll have to wait and see." He was smiling while he was saying it and as I asked, "Album date?" (for fun). I thought it was pretty funny.. :lol: I'm a loser.. But other than that, I loved the reaction I got from all of S.O.B. when they were signing my '2000 Fold' album. I'll share that story another time.

    But I hope you all didn't get annoyed with my terrible analysis. Hopefully another member of the LPA will post a better one that is more detailed for every song. I just got a little lazy. I wanted to give the LPA possibly the first tour review with set list on the Intertnet.

    Questions or comments for me are welcomed! I know how bad of a job I did..

    Great review. The set list sounds almost identical to the show I went to last year, minus a couple of songs here & there, I completely agree with you on the "Believe Me" part too. Nice one, thanks for sharing.

    I completely forgot about "Red To Black". They played it a little before "Believe Me". I'm not sure when though.. Possibly one or two before

    He was all smiles the whole time. All of S.O.B. and Beatdown were real nice. They'd talk to you, shake your hand, and thank you for supporting them. I thought it was real nice. They are just completely normal people that just happen to make real good music. Cool to see that from all of them! ^_^

    My most memorable moments were when Ryu and Tak were talking to me and about the '2000 Fold' cd I brought and when Mike was flipping through the art to see where his name was at. And then after that, when I was just standing in the back for a bit before the show started, Apathy came up right behind me and said excuse me as he touched my shoulder. He was followed by Celph Titled and they were headed toward the stage. I just thought it was cool I had a semi-encounter with Apathy and Celph Titled apart from them performing. I love their music. Oh, and before the show, when we were all outside in the rain waiting to get in, Holly Brook was walking around for like 5-10 minutes right by the line (tour buses were parked next to the entrance, parallel to the line). I thought it was her but I wasn't sure because she looks complelety different in person. I thought that was pretty cool too. :)
