Holy Hell! Now that was one kick ass show at The Pageant. It was the first time I had seen any of the three bands live.
We got there about 30 minutes before the show was to begin. The doors had just opened but there was already a pretty long line that we had to wait in. I figured it would be hard to find a spot on the floor, but I was wrong. We made it down there and went towards the other side of the floor and were able to get right up near the barrier. There was only 1 person in front of me.
The first band was one that I had never heard of before, Element Eighty. They were actually pretty good and the crowd got into them as well. They played for 30 minutes. And when they were heading off stage they were tossing some water out to people and some guy must have said something because the guitar player started to yell and him and threw his towel at him, but I have no idea what happened.
Then Ill Nino came out and played for about 45 minutes. I have known of them for awhile, but only knew one song from them, the newest single. They were freaking awesome.
While we were waiting for Sevendust to come on stage the person in front of me move away from in front of the barricade, so I jumped in and was now right on the barricade about 3-4 feet from the stage. I could almost touch the stage.
Sevendust came out and tore the roof off the place and played for about 1 hour 15 minutes. They were unbelievable. They put a ton of energy into their shows. I was right infront of where one of the guitar players, Clint Lowery, was. When they broke out with “Black” to start off the show I went nuts. The bass players was funny as hell. He was making some weird ass faces and just messing around the entire show. Both him and Clint were tosses pics all night. Clint threw a few my way, but I missed them all. After they finished up with the last song Clint took a few pics and started handing them to people and I was one of them. Image. When they left the stage the crew came out and they tossed Clint’s playlist my way and it bounced off some hands and landed on one of the security guys. I immediately pounced on it and grabbed it and so did the guy next to me, but I was not going to let go and I came away with it. Image.
Then after the show I went outside to hand out about 50 Sevendust stickers because I am on their street team.
This was one of the best shows that I have even gone to and if you have the chance to go to the show in your area, GO.
