Vinyl Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas
Atreyu took to the road earlier this month on their ‘A Death-Grip On Yesterday‘ 10 year anniversary Tour with support from South Carolina’s Islander. The tour packed Vinyl inside the Hard Rock Hotel for it’s last stop with lots of Atreyu fans waiting to hear A Death-Grip On Yesterday in it’s entirety.
As soon as the house lights went dark and drummer/vocalist Brandon Saller took the stage, the crowd erupted in cheers. The rest of the band followed and kicked off with “Creature”, the first song off ‘A Death-Grip On Yesterday’. From here the band played the entire album cover-to-cover and fans sang the lyrics back. It was great to hear songs like “The Theft” and “Ex’s and Oh’s” played live with both songs being huge hits for the band and fan favorites. At separate points in the night, both vocalist Alex Varkatzas and bassist Marc McKnight found themselves in the crowd playing/singing alongside the fans. Truly a special moment if you’re a big Atreyu fan and get to be that up close and personal with the guys.
Once the guys hit the last song of the album, “Untitled Finale”, they all departed off stage and the house lights when dark again. The “one more song” chants started from the crowd and after a brief break, the band came back out. Saller took his place behind his kit and tells the crowd that instead of one more song that they’ll be playing 6 more. The guys started the encore set with “Long Live” from their most recent record with the same name. They then played other fan favorites such as “Becoming the Bull”, “You Give Love A Bad Name”, and “Blow” before ending the night with 2002’s “Lip Gloss and Black”.
