Yes, I went to see Creed. It was a great way to kill two birds with one stone: 1) Go to a concert with my girlfriend that she was genuinely interest in that I wouldn't hate, and 2) Finally see the first rock band I ever liked live. I admit I wasn't exactly dying to see Creed because I don't consider myself a fan anymore, but they were the first rock band I ever liked, from back when I was 11 years old, and due to me being too young to go to shows, then moving on musically/them breaking up, it never happened. So I was looking forward to finally checking it off my list, especially since the tickets were like dirt cheap for solid seats. We were like 10 rows back in the first seated section (there was a GA pit).

The sound was by far my biggest complaint about the show. I guess the fact that it was an amphitheater didn't help, but the sound was just bad. Drums sounded dull and flat, the bass was more presence than pitch, and the guitars were just buried and muddy for the first half dozen songs. Eventually they seemed to get things straightened out. Also, the setlist didn't seem all that well constructed, and what little momentum there was from that was killed off by the dead stop and minute-long pauses between every song. Nevertheless, the band was tight, Scott Stapp didn't sound too bad, and there was a lot of cool pyro and such. Overall, a pretty good show. I'm not upset I went though I wouldn't go again.

Alter Bridge is the way to go, this reunion was only for the money anyway. What a dick, that Stapp.

I'm going to see them next Saturday. It was a flat $20 for a pit ticket, I figured why not get a ticket, they have some decent hits. Plus, Red is opening here, and I like them. How was Skillet? Unfortunately they're not playing my date :flame:

My Mom's friend from work asked me if I wanted two free tickets to this. I just laughed.

This was in Scranton? I'm 100% certain that Michael Scott went.

Skillet was pretty entertaining. Sort of band that I can tell they're good at what they do, I just don't like what they do. The slight tolerance I have for modern rock music applies strictly to bands I listened to when I was genuinely into that music, circa 2001-2002.

For how much I don't like that show normally, I can't imagine how much I would hate it if I lived in Scranton.

Skillet? Aren't they super Christian?

Not really. They're like the Hatebreed of hard rock. Uplifting lyrics, but not centered around religion....

How do you think they got on a tour opening for Creed?

By the way, I purposely wore my Evergrey - Inner Circle shirt, with this backprint:

The bandmembers themselves are christian, but their lyrics aren't all jesusy and whatnot....

I only mentioned that because like every born-again Christian I know is into them, and I figured it probably wasn't a coincidence.

It's not.

For the record, just because you don't name-drop Jesus 30 times in a song doesn't mean you're not a Christian band. I heard so many comments about "spreading the good word" and "the only truth" last night I wanted to vomit violently.

It's not a coincidence, but if that person was into metal/hardcore, Hatebreed would be their band of choice. They've just got that uplifting lyrical content to them.

"spreading the good word" is a christian term though.... Never heard "the only truth" before, but it sounds like it could be. Were those said by Skillet....? Because when I saw them back in April, there was no preaching from them....

Oh and, just for the record, I'll be prominantly displaying my inverted cross pendant while on the rail at this show. Hopefully they show me on the screen with the cameras and shit :tongue:
