Manchesta' Show

Sat, May 19, 2012 at 6:28 PM

Great show; was my first live event with Godsmack and it reminded me of early Metallica (pre-1998).

Even though stage was small and crowd was weak at times their effort was still top-notch. Awesome to hear Sully calling out people sitting and watching the show vs getting off their butts and being an active participant.

At age 40 I've seen a lot of shows and will definitely be seeing them again.

Staind was better than expected; good live band. I would see them as a headliner, especially in a smaller theater style arena.

    Godsmack performed in Manchester, New Hampshire a few days ago. I guess people there like to drop the superfluous letters at the ends of names and replace them with a fancy a'. New Hampsha'-like.

    I thought he meant England.

    People in that area have a Boston accent, like Sully. See info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston_accent

    I love a thread were several of us focus on the minutiae of a person's opening post and proceed to have a civil discussion about it at length. It is one of the many endearing qualities of this board.

    Honestly, I am not being at all sarcastic. I really do enjoy it. That is probably weird, but I don't care.

    We all enjoy it. And I kinda like how it runs into whole other topics, we are learning lots here

    Exactly.

    And in addition to the potential to learn, although that is often the motivating factor, sometimes I also just leap into a conversation strictly to see what dumbass thing it may eventually lead me to type.

    I'm not from the area - grew up in IL so I don't have the accent but found it funny that was how Sully addressed the crowd after they opened with Awake....Manchesta', New Hampsha'.

    Most folks from here who are in show business spend years and thousands of dollars (See Mark Wahlberg) trying to get rid of the accent.
