November 6th Tulsa Theater Tulsa Oklahoma,
Legendary rock band, W.A.S.P., performed a 40th anniversary concert at the Tulsa Theater in Tulsa Oklahoma last Sunday night. W.A.S.P. has not played in the United States in 10 years and their last tour was in 2010 but it was definitely worth the wait! The lineup for this epic performance included founding member Blackie Lawless, bassist Mike Duda, guitarist Doug Blair, and drummer Aquiles Priester.
When I arrived at the show there was a line that literally snaked from the entrance to the theater through the parking lot and ended near the tour buses. I think part of this was due to people wanting to get limited edition tour shirts and partly because the show in Dallas the night before was shut down by the local fire marshal due to the promoter over selling tickets to the show. I did talk to quite a few people who were at the show in Dallas and made the trek from Texas to Tulsa to see this show.
The setlist was spectacular. The show started with a medley of songs including ‘On Your Knees/The Flame/Torture Never Stops/Inside the Electric Circus’. The show also focused on the 30 year anniversary of the 1992 release ‘The Crimson Idol’. The band was on point and you could feel the vibes coming off the stage.

Openers Armored Saint absolutely killed it see our photos of them here.
We also had the pleasure of getting to see Michael Schenker at this show as well as a handful of other dates on this tour see our photos of him here.
There are still quite a few tour dates left and I definitely recommend you go see this tour if it comes to a city near you.
