The night was opening with Fozzy. I never heard of them before and it was one of the best surprise from 2018 for me. This band is awesome, and certainly the best opening band I have seen in a while. They were just awesome on stage and their music is pretty good. If you like classic old school heavy metal, go check them and see them live! I hope I will be able to see them as an headliner in the future.
Nothing More was next. I was not really familiar with this band before, just knew their name. But they already stopped by Montreal during the year and I was just blown by the pictures I saw from the show. I had high expectations, and they totally met them. The front man is just a beast doing crazy stuff with the gear he has on stage. He is moving everywhere, it looks like no one can stop him.
On top of that they clearly worked on their light show. This is creating the perfect mood and energy for every songs. A real pleasure to photograph them. Be aware that it is not a really heavy band, it sometimes almost feel more pop than metal. But I love their songs anyway. For me it was one of the best show I saw in 2018.
Do not get me wrong, Three Days Grace gave us a pretty good show. Even if I am not a big fan of their music, they were good on stage. The musicians and the audience were having a blast. But yeah I do not think they were able to make me forget Nothing More who kind of steal the show for me.
