Disturbed & Breaking Benjamin @ Red Rocks / Denver, CO / 2016

MusicLeave a Comment

First time at Red Rocks this year. Kind of a bummer. I had crap (row 13) seats too. They didn’t GA the show down low for some reason. And I had a ticket acquisition issue. Whatever. Still a great night to be at the world’s best venue.

Saw this on Instagram. Kinda true.

Alter Bridge was up first. Hadn’t seen them before. Saw Tremonti with Trivium last fall. Myles had a cool voice. Decent set. Still mentally going “This is Creed with less douche”.

Breaking Benjamin seemed like a good new one to see. Set was good. I didn’t polish up but knew most of the songs from Sirius radio play over the years. I enjoyed them.

The main event: Disturbed! After a hiatus and then a new album, it had been years (2010!) in the making to see these guys again. David still has it and sings the hell out of those songs with such a solid voice. I knew they were going to do Sound of Silence on the tour — it is all over YouTube. So that was cool to see. Maybe a little late at this point given the album was last year’s hit for me. Otherwise, pretty standard set from them. They seemed jazzed to play Red Rocks and let us know.
