Making a stop in support of their soon to be released, (October 7th), album, “The Last Hero”, Alter Bridge will be rocking the Skyway Theater in Minneapolis, MN on Wednesday, September 28th.
Alter Bridge’s music is often characterized and described as “heavy, yet melodic.” Their music has been listed under several genres including rock, hard rock, alternative metal, post-grunge, heavy metal, and progressive metal.
Alter Bridge’s music is co-written by Kennedy and Tremonti and arranged by Alter Bridge and the band’s lyrics are written primarily by Kennedy, although Tremonti wrote most of the lyrics and all of the music on One Day Remains. The lyrics on the first two Alter Bridge albums mainly touch on hope and overcoming regret, sadness, grief, loneliness, pain, and addiction. The subject matter on their third release, AB III, is noticeably darker, with lyrical themes mostly based on struggling with faith and a loss of innocence.
Often recognized for their live performances, the band generally does not perform in larger venues such as arenas and amphitheaters. Instead, Alter Bridge regularly plays smaller venues such as House of Blues, as was their intention from the start. Myles Kennedy said in an interview with Artistdirect, “We’re definitely a live band. That’s what it’s all about for us. We make records so we can go out and play for people.” The band has been joined on stage by several surprise guests, including Slash, Paul Reed Smith, Wolfgang Van Halen, and Eric Friedman, and several notable musicians, such as Eddie Van Halen, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones, have been reported to have attended an Alter Bridge concert. Alter Bridge’s live performances are generally praised.
Joining them at this show will be Adelitas Way. Adelitas Way is an American hard rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, United States, who were formed in 2006. The band’s debut single “Invincible”, broke them into the mainstream scene after the song made numerous television appearances in commercials and live sporting events. Their newest album, “Ready For War, (Pray For Peace)”, is due out only a few days after this show. Maybe we will get a chance to get the album before it hits stores!!
Finally, opening up the show is local favorites, 3 Pill Morning. An American Rock / Hard Rock band from Minneapolis, formed in 2004, 3 Pill Morning’s first radio single “Loser” from their “Take Control” record stayed in rotation on the Top 100 chart on Active Radio in the US for over 6 months in 2011. On July 17, 2012, the band released their debut full-length studio album entitled “Black Tie Love Affair”. The band’s latest album “Never Look Back” was released on July 29, 2016 on Countdown Entertainment distributed by The Fuel Music. The album was recognized as the Billboard #15 Hard Rock Albums and #14 Heatseekers Albums for that week.
