Avenged Sevenfold (with Mike Portnoy) Glasgow 26th Oct

Well .. A7X .. not exactly routine fodder for SA !! .. but due to the presence of ex Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy, I thought it worth a mention.

The gig was a double headliner with Stone Sour & Avenged Sevenfold - the support act being Hellyeah.

The place was heaving - probably 11-12,000 folk !!

Both Stone Sour & A7X went down a storm - they seem to really like Glasgow audiences !!

Stone Sour played for approx an hour and covered songs for their latest album & others from earlier in their career including "Bother" - the only one I knew !!
A great live band !

Avenged came on to rapturous applause & Mike Portnoy being especially cheered.
They opened with the title track from their latest album "Nightmare" - a great opener !
They also played for approx an hour with various tracks including Beast and the Harlot, Afterlife & Almost Easy.

There was a moving tribute to "The Rev" (Jimmy Sullivan), their drummer who tragically died last year.

Now to Mike Portnoy .. well what an outstanding drummer - he was sizzling !!!!!!!!
He really looked as though he was enjoying himself !

I wanted to put youtube links here, but the quality wasn't really good enough. The volume of the sound was so high that the mobiles used just couldn't cope. Glad I had my earplugs !!!!!!!

All in all a great gig !!

Cheers,

Jim
