Finally got to get out of my smoke covered town, wildfires have blanketed eastern washington for weeks. Anyways most of you are probably looking for a godsmack review but ill give the others bands some love too
First thing I did when I got there was head to the best buy tent to purchase my cds, I was suprised when they handed me the good times bad times greatest hits cd. I also got stainds cd and stood in line for them first. Really nice bunch of guys of course aaron had a cig in his mouth but eagerly shook my hand as did the rest of the band.
Next I stood in line for godsmack and the early rumblings were that sully wasn't there but on the sign it did say limited members. Many had there cds signed but I got a print out of the meet and greet I had with them in vegas, Shannon signed first and even though they said one item he eagerly signed my stepsons cd and shirt as I talked walking dead with him. Tony shook my hand and signed but didn't say anything, Robbie looked my picture over and I told him where it was and he asked if I was goin to the show next week in vegas but I was like nope just this, this time.
Next I stood in line for shinedown, really nice guys and they all looked you in the eye and shook my hand. Says alot to me when they'll do that because it feels more personable to me. Been an off again and on again fan of wrestling for years but always liked chris jericho lead singer of fozzy so met them too and they not only signed my cd but a poster as well. Talked to chris quite a bit and he even personalized my poster to me.
Didn't get to the main stage until staind but could hear adeletas way and sounded pretty good. Staind was amazing, aarons vocals are incredible, he did get pretty pissed at some douche with a lazer pointer. Set list was same as the other dates.
What can you say about Godsmack that wow doesn't cover. The energy they put out is amazing. Even got a relign horse shit remix, the wind had shifted and was bringing the local cow farms smell over the ampitheater and it hit sully so much he missed a few words saying what's with the horse shit. Pretty funny. He blamed Tony for the smell. Sully really played the crowd, talked quite a bit and though the set was 11 songs, its so much fun, it just flys by.
Shinedown was last and no offense to them godsmack just killed it, and shinedown was good and had pyro but can't match godsmacks energy. Was cool when the lead singer came within like twelve feet of me to do there simple man cover, which he does an awesome job of.
No one will probably read this novel, but hey I had a good time. Sure sully didn't sign but hey robbie, tony, and shannon are awesome and really glad I got the chance to meet them again. Uproar has been lots of fun all three years I've gone to them, lots of standing in line but for the price of a cd you get to meet the people that made the music that's touched you in some way and that's a bargain to me.
