Brad Carroll of Brad Carroll’s GameDay has published his review of Avenged Sevenfold’s show at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT. He had nothing but high praise for the band so make sure you check out the entire review.
If there is one band that has taken the lead in the hard-rock movement, it just might be Avenged Sevenfold. The band’s show at Mohegan Sun Arena Friday night made it clear that, at the very least, they’re definitely one of the few in the conversation.
Avenged Sevenfold played to a near-capacity crowd, putting forth a high-energy performance that was matched by a crowd’s enthusiasm, with mosh pits erupting seconds into the opening song and continuing until the final performance in the band’s 90-minute set. Overall, it was the rock performance that any fan should expect when going to a show, although this one easily was above the curve.
A lot of bands could learn something from watching Avenged Sevenfold play live, everything from the crowd interaction, which there was a lot of, to putting forth the effort to create something special, which is exactly what they did. It all added up to one of the best overall live performances I’ve seen. Avenged Sevenfold continued their ascent to the top of the hard rock world with a performance to remember Friday night.
