The “Ticket to Rock” tour was a lineup of several great bands for the summer. The most anticipated show at least for me was Five Finger Death Punch and Breaking Benjamin. These two bands alone would bring a stage show like no other, but they did not stop there they added not only Bad Wolves but Nothing More as well. This is most defiantly the biggest most anticipated rock show of the summer and I for one am excited.
Five Finger Death Punch
FFDP has released seven studio albums their most recent one “Justice for None” was released in May of this year and they have been on the road since doing their thing. Rocking out on stage to sold out packed crowds with one of the most anticipated shows of the summer for sure if not the concert year. They roll into the Ruoff Home Mortgage Center in Noblesville, Indiana on August 31st for an evening of rocking metal hits.
Breaking Benjamin with the release of their seventh studio album “Ember” which holds true to them, they have come back from a hiatus and from an ember are burning bright again. Lead vocalist Benjamin Burley brings his growling vocals with him as they are on tour with FFDP and sure to be a great set and can almost guarantee they will play the fans favorites from a variety of their various seven studio albums.
Bad Wolves may be a new band that has just came onto the scene but this band could be considered a super group, with many talented musicians, Tommy Vext -lead vocalist and former vocalist for (Divine Heresy, Snot, Westfield Massacre) Drummer John Boecklin (DevilDriver) lead guitarist Doc Coyle (God Forbid) Rhythm Guitarist Chris Cain ( Bury your Dead) and bassist Kyle Konkiel ( In This Moment) and managed by none other than Zolthan Bathory of FFDP. Bad Wolves had released their first single “Learn to Live” earlier this year but it was not till I heard their cover of “Zombie” from the Cranberries I was hooked on their music, and their most recent collaboration Diamante “Hear me Now” if you like good music I urge you to check these guys out, after all you don’t want to be the only person out of a sold out capacity crowd to not know there music….
Nothing More out of San Antonio, Texas was formed in 2003 so they are not rookies to the music scene and just add more value to this show and lineup of awesome bands that are playing. The band broke through in 2014 with their breakthrough release with multiple charting singles including “This is the Time” which hit number 2 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts. The follow up in 2016 charted three hit singles “Go to War” and earned them three Grammy Award nominations. This is sure to be a great set to warm up for the other three acts all are strong in their own way, but this is a do miss show, so get your tickets while you can.
