Alter Bridge at the Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA

Alter Bridge is brilliant. It shows not only in their studio recordings, but also in the vitality of their live performances. The band is full of energy and along with great sound quality; they are not over-produced with a bunch of fancy sets. It’s all about the music and interaction with the audience. Throughout the evening, the crowd proved to be anything but typical. Normally, when a singer turns the microphone to the audience, the energy in the room drops drastically. However the Alter Bridge crowd was fanatically singing in unison.
Featuring songs from their latest album “The Last Hero”, released last October, and sprinkled with many of their most beloved tunes such as “Open Your Eyes,” “Metalingus,” “Blackbird” and the acoustic Kennedy-only ballad “Watch over You,” the only slowed down moment in an otherwise high energy set.

With Scott Phillips on percussion, Brian Marshall on bass, Mark Tremonti on guitar and vocals, and Myles Kennedy on guitar and lead vocals, Alter Bridge delivered an impeccable performance to their fans. The rhythm section of Phillips and Marshall is an absolutely perfect platform for the masterful guitar work of Tremonti and Kennedy. They are extremely dynamic and locked-in tempo to the nuances of their songs. Watching and hearing this quartet play is undoubtedly a great pleasure for anyone that appreciates good music.

The love put into their music that both the band and its fans share with one another was undeniably shown in their performance on this night. The band performed a two-hour set with an encore that included “Show Me a Leader” and “Rise Today.”

They may be a million-selling rock band, but there’s no denying the talent on the stage. If they are in your town, it’s a must see performance that you won’t regret seeing.
