As I mentioned to John Ellis on the podcast, I went to this show. Here’s what a few other folks thought about the tour. – DAN
TOBY: Yep, saw the Soundgarden/FNM show at the concert hall in Toronto. Soundgarden were terrible. I think everyone there would agree. I remember Voivod’s first song, and snake’s mic didn’t work for first half of the song. They quickly solved the problem and killed the rest of the show; amazing! Good times!
LANCE: I saw the “Nothingface tour” with Soundgarden and FNM in Pittsburgh, and it is still one of the best shows I can recall. VoiVod ripped up the place and were in fine musical form that night. Piggy was, of course, in great spirits as usual; happy to be there and playing well. I also met him after a soundcheck while opening for Fight in the 90’s at Charlotte, NC. When I asked Piggy what it was like playing with Rush, the biggest smile came over his face saying, “it was a dream come true playing with those guys.” It was truly a great moment shared for two huge admirers of that band too. I totally miss the Piggy chord and his sheer and modest brilliance.
Man, what a difference two years make!
