Volbeat Amazed Grand Rapids at the Van Andel Wednesday Night
Wednesday night, Volbeat hit the Van Andel Arena while on tour with Avenged Sevenfold, Killswitch Engage, and Avatar, and for those who hadn't seen them, it was like a life-changing experience. They're so good live.
They hit the stage with the first single from their latest album, Seal the Deal and Let's Boogie, "The Devil's Bleeding Crown", and things kept getting better and better throughout the show.
The crowd sang like maniacs during the Johnny Cash intro into "Sad Man's Tongue", and were more than happy to crowd-surf and start moshpits in response to Michael's request. So many people surfed up, and everyone was having a blast.
The band sounds fantastic, super tight live, and I wish they could have played even longer. Looking at their headlining setlist on this tour, there are some amazing songs on the full show list, like "The Mirror the Ripper", "The Lonesome Rider", "Evelyn", and more.
But, for the time they had, they cranked out a great set, check out some of the songs here to see what you missed, or to relive the great show!
