In a tour featuring female-fronted bands, Halestorm, In This Moment and New Years Day, the 1st Bank Center was jam-packed Saturday night to witness three hours of vicious rock.

The California quintet, New Years Day kicked off the show. Frontwoman Ash Costello commands attention from the opening note. While there isn’t a lot of flash with this group, they pack a huge punch as the crowd responded fervently. They have recently released a new single ‘Skeletons’, which will be on their expected 2019 effort.

If you’re looking for theatrics, look no further than In This Moment. Regardless of the size of the stage, as expected, Maria Brink and company provide a spectacle that is sure to leave people talking walking out of the arena. In This Moment spanned their catalog to include—‘Blood’, ‘Roots’, ‘Oh Lord’ and ‘Black Wedding’ (with Ash Costello).

There is not a bigger voice in rock right now than Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale and it was on full display last night. Grammy winners for ‘Best Hard Rock/Metal’ performance, Halestorm is undoubtedly playing bigger (stage and production) than ever before. Not to say Halestorm ever puts out less effort based on the crowd, but they absolutely rise to the occasion of bigger crowds. Halestorm is the Mike Tyson of the hard rock scene in the sense that with every single song they are trying to deliver a knock out punch. The band heavily featured their most recent record ‘Vicious’ all the while hitting their biggest singles.

The tour runs through December 16th before Halestorm embarks on multiple overseas dates.
