re: Three Days Grace at world famous Varsity Theatre April 18th(Posted by ShamelessPel on 2/18/14 at 2:12 pm to massiveattack)
Was never a big Three Days Grace fan, but I went to one of their concerts at HoB a few years back and they were great live. One of those bands that sold me on their live performance into liking them.
However, their lead singer, Adam, is not touring with them and he was the driving force behind what made them such a great live band.
First show I saw them at he covered "The Drugs Don't Work" by The Verve and I was literally one of maybe 5 people in the entire crowd that knew the song. I was pumped to hear it and he nailed it.
Also, since Nickleback was mentioned in said thread, they were actually scheduled to come to NOLA Arena with Nickleback, which I was not attending. When Nickleback cancelled, TDG threw together a fairly cheap HoB show on the fly.
The opening act was them playing a 7 song acoustic set followed by them playing a 14-15 song electric set. Was a really cool experience to get to show up, see your band play for 1h 45m and not have to wade through any opening acts.
Sorry to poopoo in the TDG Pissing Parade Cheerios.
