The Live OC Uproar Review, "It Would Have Been Impossible For Anybody To Outshine Avenged Sevenfold"

The Live OC have put up their review of the Irvine, Ca stop on the Rockstar Uproar tour. Check out the full thing as well as a gallery of pictures (Avenged Sevenfold start at 23) from the show here.

The performance of the night however, easily, was Avenged Sevenfold. While I can’t compare it to the other Uproar shows, I think it’s safe to assume they were playing a home show and would not be outdone, at least not tonight. In opening, a guy on stage jumped to what looked like his suicide and would stay hanging during the entire performance of opening song, “Nightmare,” which got everybody’s blood pumping with energy and excitement – even the older couple next to us! The entire group brought their A-Game, without a doubt. The band made sure to remember “The Rev” Sullivan, their old drummer with “So Far Away.” Even before the tribute, M. Shadows said anything, you could hear people scream “We Love you Rev!” but just in case, Shadows explained, “see the picture of my best friend.” Shadows gave a touching speech about how without Sullivan they wouldn’t be here today and they are doing it for his legacy. The audience responded with loud and long applause’s throughout the speech giving Avenged Sevenfold the love they deserve, especially here in their hometown of Irvine. During the set, the entire 15,000 or so person audience held up cellphones and lighters so that, “Crazy mother fucker up there can watch us, and smile at us down here, celebrate his life.” The band closed out the set with “Unholy Confessions” and “ Almost Easy”.

Sadly, but maybe even out of respect for Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed was a bit forgettable with less stage performance then bands before them. However, in reality, it would have been impossible for anybody to outshine Avenged Sevenfold this night.
