Soundgarden & Nine Inch Nails at Red Rocks / Tuesday, July 22nd
Absolutely amazing night. Perfect weather for a perfect show. Well, near perfect. After seeing them at the 1st Bank Center the November before, this was a close second as far as NIN shows go. It was GREAT being in the 5th row. You could really sense Trent’s intensity and authenticity, but there was something about seeing them from a distance and being able to really take in the light show combined with music.
As for Soundgarden….well, I have always been a fan. Since 91’ and Badmotorfinger. Seeing ‘Jesus Christ Pose’ live was incredible. Chris’ voice really is amazing. That being said….(i like saying that), their stage presence was lackluster. The bassist looked almost pissed off the entire time he was on stage. At one point, he sent a mic stand flying (nobody was hurt).
I’m still glad I got to see them live. Great hearing all the old HITS!
