Shinedown really are a band going places judged on this performance. The reception they got was amazing and Brent was clearly touched by the adulation. In fact he said abiut the UK Tour ' we haven't stopped smiling since we've been here'. He reaaly does seem like a genuine guy who has conquered his own demons and appreaches life.

Highlights for me were 'Save me', Simple Man and' 'Second Chance'.

Brent Smith

Acoustic version of the wonderful Lynyrd Skynyrd's 'Simple Man'.

Zach Myers

The new album 'Amaryllis' is due for release in March 2012 and we had 3 tracks performed; 'Enemies', 'Adrenaline' and 'Bully'.

Formed in 2001 Shinedown originate out of Jacksonville Florida.
Ater a couple of line-up changes the band's current line-up consists of Brent Smith (vocals)and Barry Kerch (drums), the band's only two remaining original members, with guitarist Zach Myers and bassist and pianist Eric Bass. They are probably best known for the single 'Second Chance'. The second single off The Sound of Madness (their 3rd studio album). It is Shinedown's biggest hit to date, being their first top 10 song on the Billboard Hot 100. "Second Chance" has since gone double platinum. Ironically for the song "that broke into everything", it was one the band hated when they first wrote it

Lizzy Hale

Last night of the Shinedown tour and a rammed to the rafters HMV. Great to catch up with Ali and Jamie again in the ever expanding queue that trailed into the distance beyond.

Support was provided by fellow Americans Halestorm' from somewhere called 'Red Lion'Pennsylvania. Brother and sister Arejay and Lizzy Hale make up half the group with Lizzy providing vocals and playing a mean Gibson Guitar.
