The show started with Starset. The band was unique and didn't seem to be in the right place, it looked like they were going to bust out a rave, but that was far from what they sounded like. Their music was heavy and interesting. Their fans went crazy when they played. This futuristic looking band was entertaining and they sounded amazing. What a great way to kick off the show.
What can I say; Breaking Benjamin really put on an amazing show. They opened with “So Cold” and the crowd went crazy. Revolution was packed and I can tell this was going to be a great show. They played hit after hit, and every word was echoed in the crowd. One of the guys played a Queen cover, “Who Wants to Live Forever”, and the other one played a Tool cover “Aenima” ... It was fantastic!! In the middle of the song “Give Me a Sign”, Ben asked everyone to pull out their phone and or light a lighter. He then asked the house to turn off the lights and the entire place was illuminated by this. It was amazing. Then a musical montage of the “Imperial March” / “Schism” / “Smells Like Teen Spirit” / “Walk” faded into their song “Evil Angel”. They ended the show just as strong as they started. This has been one of the best shows I've seen at Revolution in a long time. The music was awesome, the crowd went wild and the energy was just amazing. And we were all melting!!

The next band, Young Guns, hail from London, England. They made this Florida crowd crack up when they said they were melting. They really warmed up the crowd with their infectious energy. They opened with “I Want Out” and their fans went crazy. This band was just a lot of fun to watch. They were having a good time which made their set so much fun to watch. I am now a fan.
