Matthew and I hanging out with Zack Myers of Shinedown and Chris Robertson of Black Stone Cherry on August 10, 2016 before Carnival of Madness.
An amazing concert at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Maryland. The concert opened with Whiskey Myers. A band I’d never heard of, but enjoyed. Next in line was Black Stone Cherry who played several of my favorites songs including Blind Man, In My Blood and Lonely Train. Hailstorm rocked the house next. Been waiting a long time to see Hailstorm! Checked. And then, perhaps my favorite band behind the Bealtes .. Shinedown!!!!
Shinedown: Adrenaline, Fly From The Inside, Diamond Eyes (Boom Lay Boom), Unity, Asking For It, Unity, If You Only Knew, Enemies, Call Me, cover of Radiohead’s Creep, I’ll Follow You, 45, State of My Head, Second Chance, Cut the Chord, Simple Man, and Sound of Madness.
As far as covering new albums Hailstorm did the best with half their set coming from their new album Into the Wildlife: Apocalyptic, Amen, I Like It Heavy, I Am there Fire, and Mayhem. Black Stone Cheery played Cheaper to Drink Alone, and Soul Machine from Kentucky. Shinedown played three from their new album Threat to Survival: State of My Head, Asking for It, and Cut the Chord.
An amazing, amazing night!
