Volbeat Crushed Grand Rapids at the Deltaplex with Five Finger Death Punch

After Nothing More and Hellyeah cranked things up loud to kick off the night, Volbeat and Five Finger Death Punch hit the stage to destroy Grand Rapids!

I've been looking forward to seeing Volbeat, since I've gotten screwed out of seeing them before, so I was really excited.

The band hit the stage with a cool cemetery stage setup, and the PA seemed to get even louder than it had been before!

Hellyeah Rocked Grand Rapids with Volbeat and Five Finger Death Punch

After Nothing More hit the stage first at the Deltaplex last night, to rock the sold-out crowd, Hellyeah cranked things up even louder before, Volbeat and Five Finger Death Punch!

There's a feeling right before a band hits the stage that's really cool...the buildup, the anticipation...then you hear the noises from the guitars as the musicians make sure things are working, and then the lights go down.

Nothing More Rocked the Deltaplex on Sunday Night September 21st

Nothing More hit the stage first at the Deltaplex last night, to rock the sold-out crowd, and warm things up for Hellyeah, Volbeat and Five Finger Death Punch!

These guys hit the stage hard, and keep the energy pretty high during a longer, headlining set, so their half-hour set last night was probably easy for them!  They came out and rocked it hard, blasting through great songs from their first album, including "Mr. MTV", "This is the Time (Ballast)", "Christ Copyright", and "Salem".

Check Out The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach’s Guitars and Amps on Tour

The Black Keys hit Grand Rapids a couple weekends ago, and rocked the Van Andel Arena with Cage The Elephant on the 7th.

Dan's guitars sounded fantastic all night, and he switched them out quite a bit during the show, and always had really cool tones and sounds for the songs.

Here's a cool video that went up yesterday, showing all the gear the Dan's using on this tour, and how he gets the sound that he uses for the shows.
