Sunday night rock shows are typically sleepy in Raleigh but that couldn’t have been any further from the truth as Alter Bridge brought their “Last Hero Tour” to The Ritz in Raleigh, NC. Veteran band Nonpoint provided direct support as concert goers filed in to get out of the rain and catch a memorable show.
Nonpoint kicked things off and hit it hard as they always do. Vocalist Elias Soriano, guitarist B.C. Kochmit and backing vocalist, rhythm guitarist Rasheed Thomas, bassist Adam Woloszyn and drummer Robb Rivera pummeled through what seemed be a short 45 minute set. Plagued with some technical difficulties and an overall rough mix, these performers didn’t let that stop them from delivering a great performance.
Nonpoint cranked out favorites like “Pins and Needles”, “What A Day”, and crowd favorite “Hands Off.” The highlight of their set happened when they served up a cover of Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight.” A sea of cellphones lit up the venue as patrons eagerly tried to capture the moment. Another standout song was the powerful “My Last Dying Breath” from last year’s The Poison Red release. Nonpoint closed out their performance with “Bullet With A Name” which garnered them some new fans. These guys deliver an energy packed and powerful set. The band is currently celebrating their 20th Anniversary so if you have the opportunity now is the time to check these guys out.
It’s been four years since the powerhouse group Alter Bridge released their last album. Supporting the new release The Last Hero, Myles Kennedy (vocals, guitar), Mark Tremonti (guitar, vocals), Brian Marshall (bass), and Scott Philips (drums) are back and energized with a new focus.
Taking the stage under a wash of red light, they opened the show with “The Writing On The Wall” from the latest release and immediately followed up with “Come To Life.” “Farther than the Sun” and “Addicted To Pain” from Fortress captivated the audience as the group really began to hit their stride. The band is impressively tight and Myles Kennedy’s strength on vocals and guitar is awe inspiring.
They continued to barrel through anthems like “My Champion,” “Ties That Bind,” and even a couple of acoustic numbers like “Wonderful Life” and “Watch Over You” which featured Kennedy. They closed out their set with “Metalingus” and knocked an encore of “Show Me a Leader” and probably their radio hit “Rise Today.”
Alter Bridge will be touring the U.S. through May before they head for Europe this summer so catch them while you can.
