The North American leg of the Ugly World Tour kicked off on 24th June with a sold-out show at the House Of Blues, on west Hollywood's Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles.

With a bill that also included Septic Flesh, Obscura and Devin Townsend, Children Of Bodom's stage-time wasn't until 10:15, which gave the band plenty of time for an afternoon signing session at SoundCheck Hollywood, also located on Sunset.

"It's always nice to personally meet the people who actually like our music", commented Henkka about the session, in an interview with Metal Assault. Check out the whole interview here.

A packed House Of Blues witnessed a killer show from the Finns and the night was topped off with the unannounced arrival onstage during set-closer Hate Crew Deathroll of one of Alexi's childhood idols, the voice of Skid Row, Sebastian Bach.

Bach later commented on a photograph of himself and Alexi on his facebook page, "Great time last night with Children Of Bodom at House Of Blues in Hollywood. Here's me & Alexi! He is incredible, the whole band is. Thanks Yanne for getting me onstage, although Alexi was surprised for sure".
