ohh, jealous!! Make sure you get there early enough for the opening act too... They're super awesome. I was so insanely excited when this tour was announced because I thought it was all four bands at first (Shinedown/BB/Nothing More/7D), but NoMo and 7D switch off in the middle, so the opener for my date of that tour is 7D. Not that that's bad, because I absolutely love them, but my current obsession is NoMo, haha. You know it's a killer lineup when you have an amazing veteran act like 7D as the opener, hehe.

That's going to be a hell of a show, for sure :)

Seriously! I need to see who the openers are for my show. It's going to be insane.

Your date is on Nothing More's leg of the tour if it's October, and they are insaaaane live. So much energy! Sevendust takes over the opening spot for November :)

I saw them last night for the 15th(ish) time and they were amazing of course. My brother got free VIP tickets at the last second so it was super cool to get that close to the stage. The openers were Starset and 10 Years. I freaking love 10 Years and I had no idea they were even going to the there until Starset announced them as being next.

Question - how did you feel about Starset? We saw them when they opened for Halestorm and had such mixed feelings. They kind of take themselves a bit too seriously, and don't really bring their point across. At least, that was what we were thinking.

I've never been a big BB fan. No particular reason. I just haven't heard a song that grabs me and pulls me in. They're a solid band though.

On their own, they tend to be just that, a solid band. I got into them because my best friend/writing partner uses them for a lot of inspiration and so she'll send me lyrics and videos and connect the songs to different characters of hers and so I tend to see and hear BB through that mindset. It's made them really interesting to me, but just because of my own head canons. ;)

I really like them, but I have to be in the perfect mindset. Sometimes they're just right, other times I almost feel like they're too soft, but trying to sound hard. I love them, but I'm saying I could totally see why they haven't grabbed you. ;) Diary of Jane is my favorite of theirs. Go figure. :P

I just started getting into BB and I can absolutely see them being a band that will grow on me. I've been thinking for a while that I'd love to see them live, because that's usually how I determine whether a band is right for me or not. I just didn't know if they would ever come to Europe and if they did, that they would also come to Sweden (ever since the Monumentour I've had trust issues. Why would they just skip Scandinavia like that, WHY??)

Today I saw that they are booked for a show at Debaser in Stockholm on June 20th and I freaked! Am I available?? Why does my hubby always know our calendar by heart and I have no idea what we're doing and when? I texted him to ask just to realise that he was probably swimming and therefore wouldn't have his phone near him. Darn it!! What if they sell out while I'm waiting for him to get to his phone? Half panicked I started thinking that maybe I can just buy the tickets and hope for the best. (At this point I don't even know if he wants to go, but that will have to be a problem for another day). I then read the info about the concert again. Oh, tickets are released on Friday. I see...

Apparently I'm panicking all over the place for absolutely no reason...as usual... :ugh: :slapshead:

I love seeing Breaking Benjamin. It's my husband's favorite band. Although I think he likes Sick Puppies more & has a hard time admitting it since he's been listening to BB for over 10 years.

We saw BB 5 times in 2016 alone. We did a vip twice with them for the first time. VIP is way different with them than with SP. It's very more rushed since there's so many more people. You just go through the line, get your pic & move on. No chatting time, but the guys are still great. Our second vip we did the on stage for 3 songs which was totally awesome. They're pretty down to earth guys, you just don't get much time with them. I would still recommend the vip at least once.
Breaking Benjamin puts on a helluva show! My favorite song is Home which they never play anymore. Other than that, all their music is great. I'm partial to Keith Wallen lol. He's such a cutie


Crazy is just fine cause I like where I'm going :sp:
