Exhausting Weekend Over

This post contains affiliate links.

This past weekend my wife and I spent the weekend in Vegas with some family friends. We attended Crue Fest 2 on Saturday night which was our main reason for the trip.

Crue Fest was an incredible show and it opened with Charm City Devils followed by Drowning Pool. Theory of a Deadman played just after drowning poor but sounded terrible due to the lead singers voice being almost completely hoarse.

By far the star of the show was Godsmack who I had never seen live before. They have tremendous energy and do the best dual drum kit drum solo I have ever seen. The lead singer is so incredibly talented, not only being proficient at guitar while he sings but he also goes toe to toe in the drum solo.

Motley Crue closed the show with a tribute to their Doctor Feel Good album plus a few tracks from other albums, the stage props were so 80’s dressed up it made you really miss how much flare bands used to put into stage sets.

The show was great and the Hard Rock Cafe in Vegas has a nice theater in The Joint which holds a massive amount of people on the floor.

Meanwhile, after two nights of being up until 1am and getting five hours of sleep, I come home and am right back to work for the week. You know what they say, “No rest for the weary”.
