Godsmack loves the fire!

It was another great night at Pine Knob!

Mix Master Mike opened the show by demonstrating his unreal DJing abilities. Mixing popular songs and mashing them up. Of course, with a little Detroit rock mixed in. It was great to see him after for a bit. I haven’t seen him in person since I introduced him on stage at Comerica Park before Metallica, six years ago! He’s an awesome guy! I also had the chance to me “White Boy Rick”.

The guys from Staind took to the stage just before 7:30 and ripped through their set, kicking it off with the latest single “Lowest In Me” Aaron Lewis and the band were on point throughout. Playing songs like “It’s Been A While”, “Mudshovel” and others.

Godsmack started around 9:10 as a video of Mix Master Mike played on the huge tapestry covering the stage, before being yanked down to expose the giant Godsmack logo. Hit after hit throughout their set spanning their 25 year career. Opening with “When Legends Rise” and going through “1,000hp”, “Whatever”, “Awake”, “Bulletproof” and many others. The highlight for me is always the drum battle. Many don’t know that singer Sully Erna was a drummer when he started out. He’s no slouch! Him and Shannon Larkin totally rip up that part of the set.

I saw Sully, guitarist Tony Rombola for a few minutes earlier in the night. Special thanks to bassist Robbie Merrill for the hook-up.
