All politics aside, this is one of the most surreal things I have ever seen.

The part at 13:14 reminded me of the Swamp thing where we have to put (not dead) in the title when you use someone's name:

That is incredible to be sure, but most RATM shows even in the US had pretty similar scenes back in the day. (Though granted only in 20,000-seat arenas and not in a 80,000 person soccer stadium like that.) No live act in my generation ever had the same kind of ability to get a crowd to go nuts like that. Being a part of 20,000 jumping up and down yelling "Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me!" is highly recommended (especially when you're 23 years old).

And the size and the synchornization of that crowd on the floor is nuts.

I saw them once and it ranks up there as one of the best shows I've ever seen. The only and only time I've moshed. The only thing that sucked about it was it was a rescheduled RATM/Wu-Tang show without the Wu-Tang.

Mike D breaking his arm in a bicycle accident and forcing the cancellation of a summer stadium tour with RATM and the Beasties in 2000 ranks among the most devastated I've ever been by an injury to someone else. That would have been an incredible tour.

I got swept up in a mosh pit for At The Drive In at Coachella some time ago, and, yeah. I'm good with mosh pits.

But seeing it from the outside? Awesome shit.

Only time i saw RATM was this tour. They played last and with the house lights on because Wu-Tang incited the lawn seats to rush the pavilion seats. It was pure mayhem and the only way to continue the show per local sheriff was to play with the lights on. Wu-Tang loaded up their bus as fast as the could because they were going to be arrested. Pretty sure a young lady was trampelled that night.

Even with the lights on (and working) it was one of the best shows I have ever been.

Yup, I had tickets for the Raleigh show. Would have been the first concert I've been in to in years.
