Mexico, our second home

Said James tonight right before starting Now That We're Dead. And speaking of Dead, all the band members came out and played some drums during the breakdown after the solo. Another surprise was right before Seek. At the edge of the Snakepit, a second purple drum rose from beneath the stage, and the whole band played Seek on the Snakepit! Over 66,000 were in attendance tonight.... amazing turnout Mexico City!! Setlist is up, pics to come!!
