Breaking Benjamin @ Van Andel Arena
Breaking Benjamin recently performed at Van Andel Arena with Five Finger Death Punch, Bad Wolves and From Ashes to New. This article contains pictures from the show.
Breaking Benjamin closed the show Monday November 26th with a pretty solid performance considering lead singer Ben Burnley was suffereing from a cold and had to pass some of the sing duties on to other members of the band. Ben still sang most of the night and spent a considerable amount of time out in the crowd which is something I have never seen Ben do.
Breaking Benjamin bassist Aaron Bruch did one hell of a Phil Anselmo impression when he sang Pantera's Cowboys From Hell plus he sang quite a few of the Breaking Benjamin songs to help out Burnley.
Also doing some great vocal work was guitarist Keith Wallen who did a pretty good James Hetfield of Enter Sandman.
Ben handled the vocals on the cover of Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit no to mention all the Breaking Benjamin Classics through out the set.
The band opened with Red Cold River from their current album Ember. They wrapped up the show with the Diary of Jane but not before getting a whole bunch of kids and parents on stage to rock out with the band during the finale.
I have to give big props to the entire Breaking Benjamin band for not using any

backing tracks and really playing their instruments and all their vocals were live with some excellent harmonies.
