Rock Vegas powered by Rockstar Energy Drink–Daily Band Lineup Announced; Tickets On Sale Saturday, July 28
The daily band lineup has been announced for ROCK VEGAS powered by Rockstar Energy Drink–”Sin City’s Loudest Two-Day Rock Music Festival,“ Friday, September 28 and Saturday, September 29 at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas.
I would like to take the chance to thank Victor and Lucas from Betraying the Martyrs for the interview, it was a true pleasure to speak with the both of them. I wish this band the best of luck on their tours and I hope to see them back in the states soon!
Question From The-Voices.net: How have the fans reactions been to your performance on this tour so far?
After a year off, we finally made it back to Atlanta, GA for the Mayhem Festival at Aaron’s Amphitheatre. I was ecstatic when I saw this year’s lineup, which included the return of Slayer and Slipknot to the tour. To top it off, the heat wave was letting up for the weekend.
Uncrowned kicked the day off, and they were a great choice for the opening band. Even though there were only a couple of hundred people there for the opener, they played like there were thousands. If you haven’t heard of these guys before, or seen them live, they are definitely worth checking out.
Betraying the Martyrs were next up on stage. By the time they were up, the crowd grew substantially, and it was time for the crowd to see what a band from France can do. While the entire band kicked some serious ass, the highlight of the performance was lead singer Aaron Matts’s stage show. He was all over the stage, and entertaining as hell to watch. He energized the crowd with his antics, and as the crowd went wild, he just gave him even more energy. Victor’s (their other singer) voice was the counterbalanced to Aaron’s brutal sound. Their vocal sounds were as different as Chad Grey’s is to Amy Lee’s, and it worked great. Their sound and performance skyrocketed past the expectations I had for the band. In one set, I went from someone who didn’t know who the band was to a fan of the band.
