Last nights BLS concert - Pics

Hey all,
My son and I are Black Label Society fans (him more so than I) so when I saw that they were coming to Toronto I made sure to get tickets as soon as they went on sale. Toronto is a 4 hr drive from where we live in Quebec.
Well we got to the concert a little early, which as it turns out was a good choice, as we found out that the concert was all general admission (our tix had seat numbers??) much to our surprise.
My son is only 11 yrs old and the thought of him in a mosh pit with BLS fans was a little scarey for both of us! As it turned out we managed to get right up front of the crowd and in the front row...although a little off of stage right. This ended up being an amazing spot as Zakk's guitar tech was right in front of us. The line up of all of Zakks Gibsons was almost within reach, as were the performers (his bassist was within spitting distance of us).
It was really cool to see all the guitars Zakk takes on tour with him and talk to him...he even gave both of us a couple of Zakks picks.
The band that opened was DOPE which I was not familiar with but had a great stage presence....I wasn't fond of their lyrics though....good at what they do all the same.
During DOPE's performance the crowd was roudy but the moshing was pretty much non-existant. Once BLS came on though it was amped up 1000%. I had to fight the crowd back the entire time so that my son wasn't crushed by the pack (again I thought I had seats and not general admin). It was intense!
Below is a bunch of pics from the show... not the best quality due to the environment

DOPE did a great job and gave BLS a tonne of respect. They did everything the opening act was supposed to do.

I guess I was lucky as they came within 4 hrs of us (driving time) although I had to drag the whole family with us to Toronto. Fortunately we have family there..

Re: Last nights BLS concert - Pics

I saw BLS in Chico a month ago, damned good show. I wasn't familiar with Dope, but they put on a damned good show. They did an awesome cover of "Rebel Yell", about the only thing I recognized, but they were good, all the same.

BLS was very solid, although the lyrics were a little muffled.
