Shinedown and Nothing More Bring Down the House at Beacon Theatre in NYC
Frontman Brent Smith and the rest of Shinedown began the night with “Asking for It” and “Crying Out.” Fans were belting out old favorites “Fly From the Inside,” “The Crow and the Butterfly” and “45.”
Heartstrings were pulled as the band played acoustic versions of “I Dare You,” “In Memory,” “Through the Ghost” and their cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man.” Another cool moment of the bands set included a crowd serenade of “Happy Birthday” for Shinedown’s manager Bill McGathy.
They also unleashed their brand new single “Cut the Cord” off of their forthcoming album due out later this year. Shinedown have always been a band to balance heavy riffs with serious melody. A perfect example of this was the very notable “Sound of Madness” which ended the night.
Nothing More kicked off the night with an explosive performance and despite the seated venue, less than halfway through the performance the majority of the crowd were on their feet. Their creative live performance and musical contraptions like the “Bassinator” and an all-out drum duel during “(Salem) Burn the Witch” to end their set were only a couple of the many reasons they won over hearts of fans and will continue to do so.
