queens finally hit hollywood again on oct 4 2002 at the palladium. oh the
palladium... why the palladium? we will get to that later. peaches opened up
the show-- three words describe peaches-- "what the fuck?" picture 80's metal
chicks rapping over tired beats. next was trail of the dead. these boys tried
hard but what can you say, everyone was waiting for the queens show.
queens finally came on, and i must say it was a relief. the energy level was
high but the acoustics weren't. i'm sorry, but something about having a rock
concert in an abandoned ballroom just doesn't cut it. despite this downfall,
queens were putting everything into it. we had a unique vantage point from
balcony stage left, and from here you could see Homme lurching about the
stage in all of his lanky glory. sound sucked, but it was the queens so what
can you say? they were rocking.
