PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve never seen Breaking Benjamin before so I can’t really add much to this editorial closing. Actually, as I glance through the names of these assorted support acts, I can only say that I’ve caught Skillet who I thought were terrific at their craft. Sure I’ve heard the rest of the bands but I am meaning seen in concert which for me is the litmus test of my following them going forward. Hopefully the band will announce a Summer tour next year and maybe I will finally be able to cross them off the list of bands to see. What about you readers? Is this a tour that is going it for you?
