What a sick show I saw last week. I am still recovering from the intense two-hour rockgasm that I experienced from the tenth row of Jones Beach.
Here are some observations I need to mention from the show:
- Tommy Lee was not on his usual high rise drum kit and almost buried in the background.
- The fire balls and neon laser lighting were in full effect. Gotta love it when your eyebrows practically burn off at a concert.
- They didn’t play that many tunes off of Saints of Los Angeles, thank goodness.
- The stadium seemed almost empty during Papa Roach, Trapt, and Buckcherry. I didn’t bother seeing any of these Cruefest participants myself because I didn’t want to miss the real party in the parking lot.
Overall, it was nice seeing a real rock show after the giant STP letdown at PNC Bank on May 31.
