Disturbed Concert

We got a good bit of snow the night before and it was still falling in the morning. In the morning the snow was coming down fast and laying thick. We tried to make it to work, but decided to turn around and go home. We were slipping and sliding. Drew worked from home and I hung out and did some homework and some laundry. I was flirting with the idea of not going to the concert tonight because the snow was going to turn into rain and I wasn’t sure if the roads were going to freeze. Stephanie still wanted to go. This was her night out.

In the evening, Stephanie drove to my house and parked her car. She came in and said hi to Drew then I called for an Uber. I kissed Drew goodbye and went outside to wait for the Uber. When the Uber arrived, we got in the backseat and we were on our way. On the way, we talked about the concert, our husbands, and etc. The uber dropped us off outside of PPG paints arena. I was so excited for this concert.

We got something to eat at Friday’s and it was packed with the concertgoers. Guys and Girls in black concert t-shirts, make up. We got a drink at the bar, while we waited for our table. At the bar, I had a Titos and soda water. Stephanie had a beer. We got seated shortly after we ordered our drinks.

For dinner, we ordered spinach dip as an appetizer. I was so hungry. We both ordered bacon cheeseburgers. I ordered mine without the bun and I nibbled on my fries. I am trying to watch my carbs. I feel better when I don’t eat a lot of carbs. I am trying to get back on keto, slowly but surely.

After dinner, we walked down to the arena. The doors were already open. We got in line and made our way to our seats. Once we saw where our seats were, we went and got a drink. I bought a truly, mixed berry. Stephanie got a beer. We made our way to our seats and waited for Three Days Grace to come on.

This was my second time seeing Three Days Grace. I thought I knew what to expect. I am not a fan of their new singer. I already was going into this with mixed feelings about this band. I do like their songs don’t get me wrong. It’s just that singer’s voice doesn’t make them sound hard at all.  The lead singer kept calling for people to mosh. I just felt like he was trying too hard. He tries way too hard to be rock!

However, I was looking forward to hearing infrared. This is their new song off their latest album. So far it is the only one I like.

After Three Days Grace, we went to the restroom, then got another drink. I bought another truly. Stephanie got another beer and we got ready for Disturbed! I was so excited to see them live, finally! I have been waiting to see them for so long.

Disturbed’s intro consisted of video clips and audio from when they first came out back in the late 90s early 2000s. They played clips of reporters trying to describe their style of music. I remember when they first  came out with “Down with the Sickness.” I was 14.  I liked that song when it came out.

The lead singer David Draiman came out on stage dressed in a trench coat. I loved it!

Of course, he can still make those crazy sounds with his voice as he does in the songs. He sounds just like he does on the radio. I knew most of their songs. I was 4 alcoholic seltzer waters deep by the end of the show. Stephanie had a good time, as well. We made plans to get a friendship tattoo and are excited for the next concert!
