For those fans who may not be
aware, Mastodon really looked forward to this tour.
For a long time, the band had been seeking an
opportunity to share the stage with their friends
Mastodon opened with "Tread
Lightly," a song with a Middle Eastern
music-influenced melody beneath its heavier, darker
and throatier vocals. The band then played the
well-loved "Once More 'Round the Sun" and
"Blasteroid." Energy was just rolling off the band
into the fans as they continued to play such songs as
"High Road," "Halloween" and "Megalodon." The crowd
was taking it all in. The band ended the show by
playing "The Czar." Mastodon can rest assured that
their fans had a fantastic evening.
