LIVE REVIEW: Alter Bridge Take Brand New Album ‘Walk The Sky’ To Amsterdam For Sold Out Show
Alter Bridge returned to Amsterdam for a sold-out show as they have done for every tour cycle at least going back to ‘Fortress’ back in 2013, this time however to promote the band’s brand new album ‘Walk The Sky’, which the band released back in October.
Once again, the band took on the AFAS Live, a beautiful venue with a capacity of 6.000 which was sold out for weeks before the show.
Alter Bridge, consisting of four incredibly talented musicians including legendary guitarist Mark Tremonti and Myles Kennedy, who’s also the vocalist for Slash on tour. Not to mention the talented Scott Philips and Brian Marshall, making Alter Bridge’s line-up an incredible one. Bottom line, musically an Alter Bridge show is top-notch and matched by very few acts worldwide.
With a discography going back 6 albums and most songs having a rather hefty length, picking a setlist for a tour can become quite the difficult task. As a result, the band kept the songs from the brand new album ‘Walk The Sky’ to a minimum, with only 5 songs from the album being played this evening.
Besides new songs, Alter Bridge performed a fan-favourite list with pearls from their discography such as ‘Metalingus’, ‘Ghost of Days Gone By’ and my personal favourite ‘Waters Rising’, from the band’s 2013 album ‘Fortress’, showcasing Mark Tremonti’s great singing voice.
