The first band of the evening was the American power metal band, Iced Earth. This was their first visit to Portugal for a long time, and they seemed to be enjoying their visit to Vagos Open Air immensely. With a hugely enjoyable set, Iced Earth performed two encores and left the crowd wanting even more.
Setlist: Dystopia, Dark Saga, Pure Evil, Burning Times, I Died for You, V, A Question of Heaven, Anthem. Encore: In Sacred Flames, Boiling Point, Watching Over Me, Iced Earth. Encore 2: The Hunter.
