I have the most amazing job ever, with some of the most amazing clients ever! Now that I have said that, Tonight I had the privilege of shooting 4 of the most unbelievable bands currently touring. GIGANTOUR stopped by the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Center. This place is building a huge name for themselves with the talented acts they are bringing through (tonight for example)! I can tell you first hand that the staff in the office works their asses off to bring you a good night out without having to go to the city to do so!!
Lacuna Coil started the night off with a bang, followed by Volbeat. I honestly wish these 2 groups had longer sets!
I thought I had seen it all in shooting concerts, but Motorhead was next and I was getting anxious! Seeing Lemmy take stage automatically made me think to myself “I’m not worthy!”. I bet many of you reading this who know your movies thought I would have quoted that famous line from AIRHEADS “Lemmy *IS* God”. No need. We all know that . I couldn’t help but stand there and blink dumbfounded as ACE OF SPADES played out towards the end of their set.. Even as I’m writing this, I can still hear that song playing out in my head. Wait. I can! I have it blasting through my headset!
When the curtain dropped for Megadeth and Dave played his first riff, even if I was wearing ear plugs, I don’t think they would have stopped any of the screams coming from the crowd behind me! I don’t think I can even begin to describe the presence Mr Dave Mustaine has on stage! I’ll let the photos of that set do the talking for me! All I will say is Megadeth live is an act every rocker and metal-head must see! Unbelievable!
Finally, I’d like to send a shout out to Criz from Lacuna Coil. Thanks for the cigar dude! Great chattin’ with ya and safe travels.
BRING ON THE BULLS!
