Back Beat Seattle have put up a small review of Avenged Sevenfold’s stop in Kennewick, WA on the “Nightmare After Christmas” tour. The review was done by Xander Deccio whom also shot the photos in the post below.
Anyways, this show was announced before 2010 had ended and people not only in the Tri-Cities, but Yakima as well were going nuts over this lineup. A record was set for the Toyota Center for most patrons inside the venue. Being I live only an hour away from Kennewick, I would have been crazy not to take this assignment. Especially with the massive fan base Avenged Sevenfold has.
Last but not least was the band everyone came to see, Avenged Sevenfold. I’ll be honest, I’m not really a fan of the band. But I will give credit where credit is due, these guys know how to put on an excellent show. The entire set was filled with crazy pyrotechnics, guitar shredding and even a guy hanging from a noose from the rafters (which really surprised me) I can see why this show sold out and also set an attendance record. Overall, this show really surprised me. I had heard A7X was known to be one of the best bands to photograph, but I didn’t expect them to actually put on an amazing show. Other than having to endure Hollywood Undead (which was cut short thank god!) This was a pretty damn good metal show.
