Psychic Warfare Tour rocked Raleigh
This week the Psychic Warfare Tour rocked Raleigh, NC. This event with Clutch, Zakk Sabbath, and Kyng was originally scheduled for the Lincoln Theatre Street Stage. The entire music crew refused to back down to Hurricane Matthew and the show was moved to the Memorial Auditorium at The Duke Energy Center.
Kyng opened the event extra energized.
Their newest album, Breathe in the Water, released October 7th, was a perfect fit for the Raleigh show.
Kyng got the crowd of fans warmed up and rocking with several songs from their new album and a few from albums past. Lead singer of Kyng, Eddie Veliz, was proud to announce how they are big fans of Raleigh’s own Corrosion of Conformity.
This trio has a definite traditional rock and roll vibe and is worth giving a second listen too.
Zakk Sabbath, with the one and only Zakk Wylde, was a definite treat. Several fans had no idea what they were about to experience.
Many thought this was just another cover band. Zakk brought along with him Blasko and Joey C who, combined, put on one hell of a show.
The fans, with their fists high in the air, were singing the lyrics to every song played.
Zakk did his traditional walk into the crowd, the respect was amazing.
Everyone just watched him perform as he played the Purple Vertigo Barbarian guitar behind his head. Zakk tweeted after the show,” BIG ZAKK SABBATH THANKS To The RALEIGH, NC CHAPTER for an AMAZING ZS TUPPERWARE ASSAULT of TAP DANCE DOMINATION! tBLSt.”
Up next, Clutch! Clutch released their compilation album La Curandera on black vinyl on October 7, 2016.
Clutch straight out of Maryland and also promoting “Psychic Warfare” their latest CD release came out ready to rock the roof off at The Memorial Auditorium in Raleigh. Neil Fallon (lead singer of Clutch) complimented on the “classy joint” that Raleigh provided as a replacement of the rained out street stage at The Lincoln Theatre.
Signs were posted’ “No crowd surfing allowed.” That didn’t stop the Raleigh Clutch fans from showing their support and enjoying the show! If you’re not a Clutch fan, you should be!
Props to The Lincoln Theatre and their staff for keeping this show alive!
