Rock on the Range Photo Gallery for Day 2 – Saturday, May 17th

Day 2 of Rock on the Range was another huge day, and the largest attended day for Rock on the Range in it's entire history.  Tons of bands hit the stage, and I got photos of as many of them as I could catch.

The coolest part of the day was when Ned and I got the chance to get on the stage for Avenged Sevenfold's set!  We (and a bunch of other people) got to climb up onto some scaffolding on the side of the stage and watch the show!  The concussion bombs and fire were a nice welcome to the cold, but were super loud!

Five Finger Death Punch Performs ‘Lift Me Up’ at Rock on the Range 2014 [Video]

Sunday night, day 3 of Rock on the Range was a great time for Five Finger Death Punch to hit the stage for their blistering set in Columbus, OH.  They hit the stage right before Kid Rock, and the crowd went absolutely nuts for the band, singing along, crowd surfing, and moshing during the entire set!

They cranked through a lot of songs during their set, including "Burn MF", "Bad Company", "Hard to See" and this one, the first single from The Wrong Side of Heaven & the Righteous Side of Hell, Vol 1, "Lift Me Up"!
