Best Concerts Of 2013
2013 rocked live, which show was your favorite?
2013 was busy concert-wise and 2014 shows are already stacking up with shows by Skillet, Styx (who need an opener by the way!), Stone Sour w/ Pop Evil, (Not with Jim Root though.), Queens Of The Stone Age and Bring Me The Horizon already scheduled.
2013 brought us some great shows, starting with The KLAQ shows. Balloonfest, Street Fest and The Q bbq brought us: Mark Tremonti, Sully Erna, Young Guns, Halestorm, Bush, Adelitas Way, 3rd Eye Blind, Tyler Brant & The Shakedown and Filter!
Outside of the KLAQ events, there was plenty going on in The Borderland. Tricky Falls may have been the busiest (and coolest!) venue of the year bringing us bands like Beware Of Darkness, Trapt, The Acacia Strain, Deicide, Asking Alexandria, Soilwork, Hollywood Undead, The Not So Silent Christmas toy drive and LOTS more including the sexiest show of the year, Butcher Babies!
Hands down, the most unique concert experience of 2013 had to be watching the mighty Green Day play in a small venue. These guys sell out stadiums and we got to party with them at Tricky Falls. That .. was .. awesome!
The folks at Speaking Rock kept us jumping as well with Drowning Pool, Megadeth, Buckcherry, Korn, Danko Jones and (my favorite of their shows!) Volbeat. Along with so many others!
The Warped Tour will not be rocking Cruces in 2014, but they tore it up in 2013. Nine Inch Nails were one of the bands rocking the Don Haskins Center in 2013. Trans Siberian Orchestra of course almost ALWAYS take the show of the year award and this years show in The Pan Am Center marked the last live performance of “The Lost Christmas Eve” ever. :(
What do you guys think? What were your favorite shows of 2013?
