Went to see KoRn and Slipknot last night with my brother Nick at the Sheffield Motorpoint Arena. Not seen either of these bands for quite a few years, I think the last time was at Download Festival and I believe Jon Davis didn’t actually end up being there for KoRn as he had his vocal chords?

Anyways the gig was really great, KoRn played quite a lot of their older material which put me on a bit of a trip back to my teens and gothing it up. Slipknot were as heavy and brutal as every time I have seen them, definitely got my heart going and screaming along with the songs, fists pumping in the air.

Bit deaf today and with a sore throat, but totally worth it! Nothing quite like a night of chest thudding metal to get you going in the new year!


Fear Factory

On Tuesday I saw Fear Factory live at Manchester Academy 2.  They were fantastic, playing a good blend of their new album, Mechanize, and older tracks from digimortal, demanufacture etc.

All in all the gig was everything I had hoped for, a lot of my favourite tracks, heavy as hell, and left me wanting to punch through a wall and bench press a truck!


U2 Concert

Saw U2 yesterday at Don Valley Stadium, Sheffield.
The gig was really good, and the stage was absolutely amazing, must have took a LOT of time to design it!
Only bad thing was there were really bad sound dead-spots, had to move to a more central area to get a decent sound.
