Jerry Cantrell Rocks Deep Ellu

REVIEW BY: Julian

Doors opened around 8 and the line began to slowly move. Once me and my friends got in it was about 30 mins until the first band took the stage, I'm not gonna even try to remember what they were called -- they were very repetitive and were kinda a mix between nu-metal and alternative.

The second band were called "Comes With The Fall," they were alot different than the first and had a little more variety. The singer and the guitarist kinda looked like different versions of Lenny Kravitz. Anyway this band was Jerry Cantrell's backup band. I didnt particularly like their style, but the drummer was good.

Next up were "Mad At Gravity." Don't even get me started on these guys. They sounded exactly like Hoobastank and the dude sounded exactly like Eminem when he spoke. At this point in the night I was extremely pissed at Cantrell for choosing these shitty bands to open. By the time Mad At gravity got off it was about 11:40... I'd been there for over 3 hours waiting for Cantrell, and i was PISSED.

At around 12, I moved from the entrance (where i was to avoid Mad At Gravity's music) and moved to the floor, up on the balcony behind me was none other than Vinnie Paul of Pantera. I yelled at him and threw him a devil horns with my hand and he nodded back, at that point in the night that was the definite highlight of my evening. Cantrell entered the stage in leather pants and sleevless leather type shirt, the crowd went fucking crazy because this was the man we had all been waiting for.

Cantrell tore through his set with vocal harmony and amazing clarity and precision with his guitar, he nailed every note perfectly for every solo, he threw out some Alice in Chains covers, including Would, What the Hell Have I, Brother, Them Bones, Down in a Hole. I was not too familiar with Degredation Trip so i have to apologize for not knowing the Set List. These Are the songs I do rememeber, not neccassarily in this order (once again I apologize.) He did play Angel Eyes, Degredation Trip, Anger Rising, I Cut you In, My Song, Brother, Would. He finished his set and said thankyou to the fans and walked off, the lights stayed off.

We were all chanting “JERRY JERRY” and waiting for the encore of the night. Cantrell once again took the stage and began with “What The Hell Have I,” at this point I would have to say the singer of Comes With The Fall doing Layne Staley's parts was not the greatest, I mean he did it, but not close to Layne -- It didn't matter really because the crowd pretty much drowned out alot of the parts, regardless they were the best AIC covers you will EVER hear again. After ““What The Hell Have I,” they went into “Down in a Hole” the entire crowd singing along with every word throughout the song.

The highlight of the evening was still to come (at least for me and any Pantera fan,) there was one song left for the encore, Cantrell said “ The last song its called Them Bones... come on Dimebag,” and from left stage appears none other than Dimebag Darrel!!! Cantrell and Dime tear into the set, Dimebag takes off his hat and throws it to the crowd, the place went fucking apeshit, as soon as I saw him hit the stage something clicked, I pushed my way as far forward to the front as far as possible, I went completely apeshit, I could not believe that Dimebag was playing 5 feet in front of me! To be honest I dont think his amp was very loud but he was tearing it up ripping through a solo about a minute in the song. This experience with Cantrell had just made up for the 3 hours of disgust and boredom. Cantrell's set was amazing, he was amazing.
