Trivium, Munich, Tonhalle – April 11, 2018 – with special guests Venom Prison and Power Trip

April 15, 2018

Florida-based band Trivium introduced a new video for the song ‘Endless Night’. It’s taken from their current record ‘The Sin And The Sentence’. Check it out:   The night started out slowly with the first band Venom Prison. Many people hadn’t shown up yet, which is always a hard way to start out a concert. With the second band Power Trip the audience became livelier.   When Trivium entered the stage, the place was packed. Not officially sold out, but pretty close to. They played a tight show of about 90 minutes, which is pretty rare these days, esp. in the hardcore/metalcore genre. Many of the new songs from ‘The Sin And The Sentence’ were on the set-list, but also tracks from their former records. Given that the crowd sang along to every song with the same intensity, it’s safe to say, that they love the new stuff as much as the older songs. The longer bands are in the business, the harder it probably gets to satisfy the fans. There are so many bands [Read More]

Avatar with special guests Old Kerry McKee and Hellzapoppin’ Circus Sideshow in Munich at Technikum, April 1st, 2018

April 10, 2018

In January 2018 Swedish metal-band Avatar released their latest record ‘Avatar Country’.  They started their world tour in the US in early 2018 and started off in Europe in March. April 1st they made it back to Munich. Like so many dates on their current tour, the Munich show was sold out. It was the bands’ biggest headline-show in Germany. For fans of theatrics and freakshows, that show was to place to be on Easter Sunday. First act to hit the stage was Old Kerry McKee, probably the quietest act of the night, since he’s a one-man-act. Nevertheless his set was quite entertaining. Second on stage was Hellzapoppin’ Circus Sideshow, a travelling freak-show from Florida. Something you won’t see everyday at a metal-show. Freak-shows actually are hard to find around here. Check out the pics to get an idea of their performance. Avatar had the audiences’ attention from the first minute on. Johannes Eckerström has this ability to lead the people through the show, introducing almost every song with a short story. Avatar have a [Read More]

PHOTO GALLERY of Florida Georgia Line at Concord Pavilion by Sean Liming

September 19, 2017

  Nelly got the crowd going and sure made one little girl’s night. He pulled her on stage and sang to her. The cute girl was maybe in middle school with tears down her face with excitement. With the crowd peaking with excitement, Florida Georgia Line sent the crowd into a frenzy. They hit the crowd with a bang. The stage was built to go out into the pit in multiple directions. Florida Georgia Line stopped the concert and sure made one guys life by handing him an acoustic guitar they just played with their signatures. If he didn’t know how to play a guitar, he sure will now. This fun country band is all smiles and fun. It was just a job for them or just singing to get their message sent, they wanted to have just as much fun as the fans were. With a bottle of whiskey each, the cheers to fans at the Concord Pavilion.   Check out the photo gallery: ~ Photography by: Sean Liming Photography Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SeanLimingPhotography/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/s.liming/

TECH N9NE at UC Theatre in Berkeley. Contributed by Sean Liming

April 13, 2017

The “Strictly Strange” tour came to the UC Theatre this past Tuesday on 4/11/2017 and all the artists were putting their best performance for the crowd. The artist and management always supportive of their fans. The artists came out to the auditorium to talk and sign autographs after their shows. No matter how big they are, they are always nice and grateful to give back to their fans. I just wish other artist would do this rather than staying backstage and hidden from the general audience. Tech N9ne kicked off his “Strictly Strange” tour with 68 shows in 74 days!! With Tech N9ne’s new album recently released in April, he was sure to make his performance “Sriracha” hot!! Known for his spit firing rhyming lyrics from St. Louis Missouri, he was going to show you his good and bad side. Krizz Kaliko came on the stage to join Tech N9ne. With both artist on the stage, the crowd went crazy. After a couple of songs, Tech N9ne gave the stage to Krizz to perform his [Read More]

Concert review: Freedom Call, Eden’s Curse and Veonity. By Alex Bock

February 22, 2017

  Munich, Backstage, Feb. 14th 2017 It was Valentine’s Day and a Tuesday. One might think, probably not the best evening for a live show. BUT…. German Power Metal band Freedom Call have made a stop in Munich during their ‘Master Of Light’ tour and their fans came. As to be expected they didn’t come alone. They brought two bands along on tour with them. First one to play that night were Veonity, a four piece from Vänersborg, Sweden. They started out in 2013 and released their first EP that same year. In early 2015 they released their first full length record, which was followed by their latest effort ‘Into The Void’ in 2016. Just like in Freedom Call their vocalist Sköld also plays guitar, which gives them a vibrant guitar sound. You should definitely check them out, when they come to town. Next on – Eden’s Curse. Based in Glasgow, UK, the members are a mixed bunch of five guys. Only the bassist and drummer are Scottish, their vocalist was born in Serbia, the [Read More]
