Woah, this is more like it! W.A.S.P. are great live, but it's always irritated me the short amount of time that they always play for! lol 2 hours at least, is how long a band like W.A.S.P. should play for, so I really hope I get a chance to see this! xD

yeah, i'm pretty sure it's gonna be amazing stuff. instead of stretching Wild Child into a 6-minute epic and I Wanna Be Somebody to triple its studio length, now they're gonna have to cram all that sweet awesomeness in an over the top classic metal 2 hour orgasm.

now the only problem is, the first possible time i might see this is over a year away, a long wait, but definitely worth it.

I'm really hoping that with the first hour being dedicated soley to stuff from the first 4 albums, that it lets them unleash some rarely played album gems like "The Torture Never Stops", "The Last Command", "The Heretic", "Mean Man", and "Inside The Electric Circus". xD The "Crimson Idol" set will likely contain just 3 songs. As "Chainsaw Charlie" will almost certainly be played, and that will take up 10 of the 25 minutes just on it's own! (If they play the full album version, which I hope they do!)

I dunno what it means by the third set wiill contain "new studio album" songs... whether it means songs from "Babylon", or that they're working on a new album now that'll be out before the tour starts. Im hoping its the latter..

Ah well, at least it gives us adequate time to prepare for the awesomeness! lol
