Yesterday I went to see Avenged Sevenfold, Stone Sour and Hellyeah at Brighton.
And it was easily the best gig I've ever been to. Every band was on top form and it was amazing to see Vinnie Paul, ex-pantera drummer and Mike Portnoy, dream theater drummer.
None of the three singers fucked up at any point, neither did any of the musicians for that matter. A7X had amazing pyrotechnics that burst into life during heavy parts of songs, and the set itself was awesome.
What really topped the day off though was that Stone Sour recorded footage for their live dvd at this particular gig! Really, they didn't tell anyone about this and only brought this forward after the first few songs!
Anyway, this has been my favourite gig so far, and also the most tiring gig ever. I've never felt so much pain after seeing a band, but it was worth it!
Now what is the best band performance you've seen live?
