Sixx: A.M. Bring ‘Modern Vintage’ Sounds to New York City With Apocalyptica
Sixx: A.M. kicked off their set with “Let’s Go” and “Give Me A Love” off of their new album Modern Vintage. They went on to perform other fresh tracks like “Relief,” “Gotta Get It Right,” and “Stars,” as well as their rendition of “Drive” by The Cars.
The band is vivacious and a whole lot of fun live. Frontman James Michael can light up a room with his smile as well as his vocal abilities. Seeing bassist Nikki Sixx and guitarist DJ Ashba exchanging friendly banter with each other onstage shows the friendship and bond between the band as a whole.
Fans sang out to favorites “Accidents Can Happen,” “Pray for Me,” “This Is Gonna Hurt” and “Lies of the Beautiful People.” The night ended with an encore that included “Skin” and “Life Is Beautiful.”
If you haven’t caught Apocalyptica live then you have been missing out! The Finnish cello metalers took the stage beforehand and brought the house down with songs from their brand new album Shadowmaker. They also gave the crowd a treat with their renditions of Sepultura’s “Inquisition Symphony” and Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters.”
Not only is every member in Apocalyptica incredibly talented but they are also charming and humorous onstage. Their set ended with a manic version of Edvard Grieg’s “In the Hall of the Mountain King.” Cellos and metal never sounded so good together.
The New York boys of Honor Among Thieves kicked things off right with a lively set at the start of the night.
