Greatness comes in all forms and when it encompasses talent, an unparalleled work ethic, and a humility that is rare amongst rockstars…Brent, Zach, Barry and Eric collectively form the band known as Shinedown.
Santa’s Christmas lists throughout Central Florida this holiday season included the coveted ticket for 3-nights of Shinedown in the intimate setting of Orlando’s House of Blues. Each night would have its own unique theme celebrating the band’s music while giving fans the total experience.
Night 1 centered on the band’s album Sound Of Madness by playing the entire record to celebrate the tenth anniversary of its release. Night 2 brought a completely different vibe as the boys unleashed an unplugged evening…yes all Shinedown all acoustic. And for the encore, the third and final night the band’s setlist would be determined by the fans in attendance.
Thursday night’s show was scheduled for an 8:00pm start time; however, due to the massive crowd still outside waiting to get in the venue, the band decided they would wait until every fan was in the building before starting their performance.
The crowd erupted as the evening started off with the single “Devour” followed by each song from the Sound of Madness album. Fans sang after song, word for word, as they appeared to be experiencing some sort of out of body experience. After playing the Sound of Madness in its entirety, the band performed additional hits off their latest album Attention Attention, a hit from Threat to Survival, and Amaryllis. The evening wrapped up with the song Brilliant.
