Alter Bridge's sound was very good, even if Tremonti's guitar stood out a little bit too much. They played their entire CD, and about 3/4 through their set Tremonti and Phillips showed off their solo skills.

Sound: Four bands played at the show: Some local band that sucked (can't remember their name), Submersed, Future Leaders Of The World, and Alter Bridge. The sound for the first band wasn't too great, mostly because we were standing relatively close to the stage, but also because they were obviously an amateur act. Submersed's sound was relatively good, except the vocals could have been turned up a little bit and the lead guitar didn't stand out as much as I would have liked. Future Leaders of the World had decent sound, but the band was horrible. Alter Bridge's sound was very good, even if Tremonti's guitar stood out a little bit too much. Phillips drumming was very powerful. // 8
Perfomance: The audience for the most part seemed to greatly enjoy most of the show; Submersed and Alter Bridge got immense applause. There was a strange dude called "Lizard Man" who did some weird things on stage before each band came up. This was the one of the first shows on the Jagermeister tour. Submersed played about 5-6 songs off their debut album, and closed with the phenominal radio single Hollow. I didn't pay attention to FLOTW because they were just such a terrible band, but I do recall them playing their single Let Me Out second to last. Alter Bridge was one of the best live bands I have ever seen, they played their entire CD, and about 3/4 through their set Tremonti and Phillips showed off their solo skills. After their performance was over, the crowd went wild and called them back, and they performed an acoustic In Loving Memory, called for requests from the audience (which included Enter Sandman, Back In Black, and a couple classic rocks songs), and then finally played an amazing tribute of Ozzy's Crazy Train, and closed with Open Your Eyes. // 10
Overall Impression: This concert was the first leg of the Jagermeister tour and took place at Northern Lights in Clifton Park, NY on April 2nd, 2005. The opening bands were that crappy local scream band, Submersed, and FLOTW. I loved Submersed and Alter Bridge's performances, and the best parts were when Submersed did an instrumental and when Alter Bridge called for requests from the audience and played Crazy Train. It was $18 for advanced tickets, $20 at the door, and seeing Submersed and Alter Bridge was way worth the money. I am definately planning to attend their next gig. // 8
