Front Row Pics: Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, Hellyeah!, and Nothing More @ The Tsongas Arena in Lowell, MA
What can we say except that there are so many reasons this tour will be remembered as THE tour of 2014 that it’s ridiculous? For those of you who’ve already seen the show live, you know that not only were the performances by headliners 5FDP and Volbeat as well as special guests Hellyeah! and Nothing More spectacular, but that everything else ~ the sets, the energy, the lighting, the surprises along the way, the crowd participation ~ was some of the absolute best we’ve seen in quite a while (and we really mean it ~ so much so that we have a whole separate wave of coverage from a second show the three of us [yeah, sometimes it doesn’t suck being the bosses and the lead photographers] were lucky enough to attend to share with you this week!). We got to experience the “ear candy,” as it were, and hope you can all catch the tour when it plays near you, but for those of you who won’t be able to, here’s the eye candy portion, brought to you by contributing photographer Robb Duchemin, of a genuinely extraordinary night thanks to four outstanding bands ~ not to mention tour managers, reps, sound and lighting designers, board ops, set designers, technical personnel, crew members, the venue staff, and a whole lot of other people who worked their asses off to make sure the musicians could just focus on what they do best…rock the muthufuckin’ house!
