Five Finger Death Punch brought the crowd to tears with their set at Carolina Rebellion 2018. Why? Well, Ivan Moody brought a little girl suffering from Cancer up on stage for the last song of the night. There was not a dry eye on the festival grounds. Not only that, but FFDP is always a fan favorite to begin with as they're very military and USA friendly. Their show was definitely one of my favorite points of the weekend.
Pop Evil has been rocking stages for many years now and they always prove they can hang on the Main Stages. This band is fresh off of their self titled release and has some amazing work on every single album. They just wrapped up their latest tour, but be sure to head out to a show when you see Pop Evil on the bill!
Red Sun Rising is one of those bands that isn't quite the household name, but is almost there! People hear the name and can't put a song to the band, but when they hear them play, they know their work. Red Sun Rising is amazing live, and i'm glad I got the chance to see their performance at Carolina Rebellion. They blew me away just like they do, time after time.
The Wild! is absolutely insane on stage. They opened up Carolina Rebellion for me on Friday the 4th, and it was a blast watching them perform. I've seen them in smaller clubs before and they always bring the energy, but with a crowd this large in front of them, it seemed like they had boat loads more this time around. Just a fun band all around.
Not only did the Butcher Babies play an absolutely stellar plugged in show in front of almost 25,000 fans, they scheduled a secret show and treated fans courtesy of Zippo to a three song set. The Zippo Sessions set was broadcasted LIVE via SiriusXM, but we also got the special invite!
