GodSmack packs a punch at Intrust Bank Arena
Whatever you thought you knew about modern Rock n Roll, you were wrong. The Lawrence, Massachusetts natives came out guns blazing and didn't let up for 90 straight minutes. Godsmack’s redefines rock n roll roots and keeps the classic 90’s metal era alive by adding a modern flare. With aggressive fills on a spinning drum podium, crunchy bass thumps, flaring guitar solos, and frontman Sully Erna on his best behavior, Godsmack satisfied their overwhelmingly rowdy fanbase.
The show opened up with the band's logo displayed on a black curtain with Queen’s We Will Rock You blaring over the loudspeakers getting the crowd on their feet, and hands in the air. The atmosphere stayed electric for the whole performance with Erna announcing they would be playing some of their favorite hits from past albums throughout the night. Many joint guitar duels led to a picturesque metal on metal battle between Erna and lead guitarist Tony Rombola. Drummer Shannon Larkin may have even stolen the show with the blur of his hand's during drum solos and incredible stick flips. Towards the end of the show, he pulled out 3 foot long drumsticks and STILL performed a jaw-dropping solo with sticks that were bigger than his arms. The show wrapped up with a standing encore and raging fans packing the stadium.
