Hail to the King

Hello all! I had another amazing weekend! I saw Avenged Sevenfold at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on Friday night. This was my first rock concert there, and it was a totally different atmosphere than the country concerts I have been to there. Which I expected. This was the first time I saw Avenged Sevenfold too, so I was super pumped. I went with three of my new friends from this semester, and it was a great bonding time together. The first opening act was a band called Ghost BC. Creepy right? The guitar and drum player was really good and talented. The lead singer though, he was, well… odd. His singing was not good at all, he had make-up on that made him look like a skeleton, and he dressed up like he was the Pope. The only thing I liked was the guitar playing. The next opening act was Deftones.  I have heard of them but not their music. Some songs were okay but I wouldn’t go out of my way to search for their songs to listen to. Finally Avenged Sevenfold came on and it was epically awesome! They played a lot of my favorite songs and did a tribute to the Rev. The Rev passed away in 2009 due to an accidental overdose of prescription drugs and alcohol. That was an emotional moment for me and other fans. This was probably one of my favorite concerts I have been too. I will see them again!

Rock on Griffin Nation.
