"The Seat Cushion Riot" 1988

Slayer/Danzig
Felt Forum
New York, NY
08/31/88

I went to this show ....and its the most out of control concert I have ever been to...and that's saying a bunch.

The MSG staff from the start had no clue what was going to happen....not that anybody could of anticipated what happened...

The concert was a controlled riot from song one Raining Blood ..... the pit was very aggressive even for a Slayer show.....( and then )

Someone in the back thought it was a good idea to rip out a seat cushion and throw it at the band......and that started a deluge of "fans" to do the same...

and no I did not throw one seat cushion.. (I did take one home)....I was fighting for my life in the pit..(my back was to the soundboard on the floor).......

(SET LIST)
Raining Blood
Silent Scream
At Dawn They Sleep
Read Between The Lies
Fight Till Death
Mandatory Suicide
Kill Again
Behind The Crooked Cross
Postmortem
Reborn
Die By The Sword
Altar Of Sacrifice
Jesus Saves

Angel Of Death


Here are the the last two song they played.....and you can see why stopped the show....
