This has been a great weekend of music so far in Grand Rapids!  Last night was the fantastic Wayland show, and I had an amazing time!

Friday night was another show I've been looking forward to for a while now, another chance to see Iced Earth!  Also on the bill, one of my favorite bands, Sabaton!  And opening the show, a great band called ReVamp.

This was the first show of the tour for Sabaton and ReVamp, and the first show back in the US for Iced Earth.  From what I understand, a lot of gear didn't show up for the openers, so things were delayed, and ReVamp had some tech issues during their show.

The Sabaton and Iced Earth sets seemed to go off without a hitch, and I got to turn Metalhead Ned on to how awesome Sabaton is!

ReVamp - "Head Up High"

Sabaton - "Ghost Division"

Iced Earth - "Plagues of Babylon"
