It was a beautiful night for a rock show at Stir Concert Cove. Plenty of warmth to welcome the Unheavenly Skye Tour featuring Mastodon and Coheed and Cambria with Every Time I Die kicking things off. The crowd started a little small but grew as the night went on with the head liner’s taking the stage.
Every time I Die kicked things off with a high energy set that drew fans towards the stage. No strangers to the metro area you could easily tell they had plenty of fans in the crowd singing along. They made damn sure the crowd was hyped up for the bands that were to follow.
This tour marks the 10th anniversary of the album Crack the Skye for Mastodon and they played it in its entirety. The set was nothing short of amazing. Albeit I will admit that I am a huge fan of the band and this was actually the first chance I had been able to see them live. Seeing the shear talent and song writing that I have been a fan of for so long played out right in front of me was outstanding and I will not miss a chance to see them again.
Coheed and Cambria took the stage after the sun had gone down to heavy anticipation from the crowd. You could tell that there were a lot of fans in the crowd by the reaction and enthusiasm to the songs being belted out. I last saw Coheed in 2007 and they definitely have not lost a step. Their sound has grown over the years and turned them into one of the most entertaining bands I have seen.
All the bands were extremely tight and put on a show I will not soon forget. I am very happy I had the foresight to take the next day off work because the night got away from me with all the bands taking me away to a better place. Thanks to Stir and all the staff for another great night at the Cove. Looking forward to the next one.
