Obituary – Battle of the Bays European Tour 2016

The Battle of the Bays brought a nice packages of 4 bands to the Jupiler stage of 013, Tilburg on Wednesday November 2nd, 2016.
The package consist of King Parrot, Prong, Exodus and Obituary. As almost always I missed the first bands. I entered the venue when Exodus just kicked of their set. Of course Gary Holt wasn’t present, guess he had to recover from the tour with Slayer 😈. But his (permanent?) replacement Kragen Lum did a great job. During the last song a kid from the audience was invited on stage and he got the opportunity to play guitar together with Lee Altus. Nice gesture!

  • Setlist Exodus
  • The Ballad of Leonard and Charles
  • Blood In, Blood Out
  • And Then There Were None
  • Deranged
  • Body Harvest
  • Piranha
  • Blacklist
  • War Is My Shepherd

After some good old thrashmetal it’s now time for some Old School Florida Death Metal! Again, it’s the third time this year, after two festival shows, now a headlinershow.

Featuring some songs from the album ‘Ten Thousand Ways to Die’, just released about a week earlier. You know what you get at an Obituary show and it is still not disappointing. Steady as a rock. And of course the show would not be complete with the classic songs from ages ago! 27 years exactly, wow I’m getting old now 😉

There was a Battle of the Bays shirt, regret I didn’t bought that one, but I bought the Obituary tourshirt. Also a nice one, the ‘Blood Soaked in Europe Tour 2016’shirt. On the front the Obituary logo, dripping blood, on the back the tourdates for European tour.
