Let me get this outta the way to start this show review blog...this show kicked ass!! From the start to the end all three bands brought it and delivered one of those rare shows where every penny spent was well worth it for the audience.
Openers Devour The Day blew my mind. I haven't seen an opening band this fierce and take hold of a sold out crowd like this in years! Singer Blake Allison is a true frontman coming out letting everyone know who's boss and the crowd enjoyed it.
Devour The Day's brand of hard edged rock fits perfect in the live setting. Great band, tunes and with Blake at the helm they will definitely draw new fans from their live concert experience.
Next up was Australia's (now LA planted) Sick Puppies. Headed now by the great Bryan Scott on vocals/guitar (singer/lead guitarist Shimon Moore left in late 2014) along with the amazing Emma Anzai on bass and drummer powerhouse Mark Goodwin, Sick Puppies are out on the road supporting their latest release "Fury".
With many radio and YouTube fan favorite songs, the Sick Puppies when not headlining have one strong 45min set to rock the crowd. Check out the new album.
Headliner Skillet are probably the most successful modern music crossover Christian rock band around. More of a positive lyrical approach delivered than the overwhelming Jesus down your throat approach of other similar Christian bands. More palatable to the masses and probably why they are successful besides being a kick ass band that writes some great songs. The wife and husband duo of singer/bassist John & rhythm guitarist/keyboards of Korey Cooper are a energetic powerhouse onstage.
Drummer/singer Jen Ledger is like a female Dave Grohl behind the kit and lead guitarist Seth Morrison smoothly keeps it all intact onstage around his other whirlwind bandmates. Supporting their 10th album "Unleashed", Skillet show their musical faces from Metal to Pop on this release. With hundreds and hundreds of millions YouTube views there' no doubt this band has crossed over to the mainstream rock fan pool.
