After a five-year absence from the NYC music scene, Alter Bridge finally returned to play in Manhattan, but a minor fire in a storage room at Terminal 5 where the band was scheduled to perform nearly derailed their concert. Fortunately for all of the people that purchased tickets in advance, the band was re-booked at PlayStation Theater and the show went on as originally intended.
Fronted by the incredibly talented Myles Kennedy (vocals/guitar), with shredding master Mark Tremonti (guitar/vocals), Brian Marshall (bass) on the five string bass, and Scott Phillips (drums) rounding up the rhythm section, Alter Bridge put on one hell of a rock show.
These guys are an extremely tight unit that’s incredibly fun to see live in concert, and with six studio albums to their name, they delivered a rocking set list that didn’t disappoint in the least. They easily shifted gears between hard-hitting tunes with aggressive attacks and beats and romantic ballads without losing their groove or sounding awkward. The group played “Isolation”, “Waters Rising” and “Addicted to Pain”, in addition to “One Life”, “Wouldn’t You Rather”, and “Pay No Mind” from their most recent album Walk The Sky, to name a few songs.
The band is currently on the road promoting their latest production and is poised to visit many cities in Europe. Visit their social media pages for more details and dates.
