I’ve been a HIM fan almost 10 years now, though they’ve been around a lot longer. I first saw them at Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC back in 2005.
Last night was the second time I saw them at Starland Ballroom. The sound was not the best, but they did all my favorite songs — songs I never saw them do live before, one great one after another, and a lot from my favorite album, “Deep Shadows and Brilliant Highlights.”
I was right in the front (stage left) but unfortunately couldn’t get a set list, so in no particular order, here’s some of my favorites: “Right Here in My Arms,” “Wicked Game,” “Rebel Yell,” Sacrament,” “Buried Alive By Love,” “Funeral of Hearts,” “Pretending,” “Heartache Every Moment,” “In Joy and Sorrow,” “Salt in Our Wounds.”
