Whenever my favorite Welsh heavy metal band comes over the pond, you know I will be there! Bullet For My Valentine kicked off their US tour in support of their new album, Temper Temper, last night in Denver. Nobody ever kicks off a tour here. We are buried 1/2 way down on the concert t-shirt between Boise and Kansas City. Not tonight. We get to see it first.
They led out with Breaking Point which didn’t surprise me. Your Betrayal came in 2nd which was the prior tour opener which is always amazing. I run to that song like everyday.
The pit was especially sweaty tonight. Smelled like 15 kinds of dude when I was done. I bought a concert t-shirt on the way out just to change into something dry for the drive home. Good excuse.
Here is Matt turning the Mike around and making us sing the song to get it going.
Young Guns and Halestorm opened. I walked in right during the end of Young Guns. Saw the full Halestorm set. I was sure not expecting anything special but I enjoyed it a lot. I have about 0 bands in my music library with female lead singers but this chick rocks. Full guitar. Great voice. They had Lizzy dialed in just right and the vocals were really clear. I loved it. I was back a ways during that set but then Lizzy reappeared during Animal during the B4MV set and did a little duet. Nice!
I need to brush up my Halestorm now.
Thanks for starting the tour in Denver guys! Hope to see you again. How about this Wednesday? San Francisco!
