February 12, 2015, Austin City Limit review


February 12, 2015 
LIVE - Austin City Limits, Austin, TX

I was able to watch the concert on TV Pay Per View channel. 
This concert is like the Raise The Dead Live In Wacken DVD/CD that was previously released with minor changes.

First was new guitarist Nita Strauss replacing Orianthi. The other is one song change from “Department of Youth” to “Lost In America” a much better song in my opinion.

I notice the camera angels were good but the direction at times I have questions. For example on “He’s Back (Man Behind The Mask)” very quickly you see someone on stage walking up to Alice asking for directions as he points to the other side of the stage. I figured out since the song was in Friday The 13th the girl was a camper holding a map. At first I thought it was a newspaper then it hit me oh a map. But you don’t see her on the stage the camera goes to the guitarists. I was waiting to see if Jason shows up w/ machete I don’t know if he appears or not I have no idea what happens to the lost camper.
On a funnier level during “Ballad of Dwight Fry” Alice’s wife Sheryl plays the nurse usually holds a baby. This time she is holding two babies a little nod to being new Grandparents to twins. Also Alice changes the line in the song from like to see that little children she's only four years old” to “they’re only 12 weeks old” another nod to little Falcon and Riot Cooper.

As for new guitarist Nita Strauss did an amazing solo a few times especially during middle of show after Glen’s drum solo and on “Foxy Lady” she just fits right into the band like she’s been w/ them for years.
In all it was a great show that went by pretty quick.
