The Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida was ablaze with raw energy and heavy-hitting rock music this Sunday as hard rock legends Godsmack took the stage for an unforgettable night of music. With two outstanding opening acts, Flat Black and Atreyu, this concert was a thrilling journey through the world of hard rock. From the moment the doors opened, it was evident that this was going to be a night to remember for fans of heavy music all over South Florida.

Flat Black was the first of the opening acts, set the tone for the night with their high-octane performance. Featuring ex-Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Jason Hook, Flat Black brought a refreshing blend of heavy metal and alternative rock to the stage. Their charismatic lead singer engaged the crowd with powerful vocals and an intense stage presence. Songs like “Justice Will Be Done” and “Halo” had the audience head-banging and chanting along, making it clear that Flat Black is a band to watch out for. They even included a cover of FFDP’sWash It All Away” which the audience went wild for.

Next up was Atreyu, a band that needs no introduction in the world of modern metal. Their set was an absolute masterclass in blending melodic hooks with heavy breakdowns, bringing a bit of a heavier vibe than the other bands on the bill. The band unleashed a barrage of hits including “Becoming the Bull” and “Right Side of the Bed” which sent the mosh pit into a frenzy. Atreyu’s new lead vocalist Brandon Saller commanded the stage with his powerful vocals, and the band’s chemistry was palpable. The crowd was thoroughly engaged throughout their performance, and Atreyu left a lasting impression on the crowd as they finished up their set with “Blow” and “Warrior” which even had some snippets of Whitney Houston mixed in.

The anticipation in the venue reached its peak as Godsmack prepared to make their grand entrance. The stage was adorned with an intricate setup, complete with an impressive lighting display that added a visual dimension to the performance. After a short intro featuring Mix Master Mike, the iconic Boston rockers emerged under a shroud of smoke and lights, and the crowd erupted in applause setting the stage for an unforgettable night. Godsmack kicked off their set with the explosive “When Legends Rise” instantly captivating the audience with Sully Erna’s signature vocals and the thunderous drumming of Shannon Larkin. The band effortlessly transitioned between their hits and tracks from their latest album Lighting Up The Sky, creating a well-rounded and dynamic performance. Classic tracks “Something Different” “Voodoo” and “Awake” were met with frenzied enthusiasm, showcasing the band’s timeless appeal.

Sully Erna’s connection with the crowd was palpable, as he engaged in heartfelt banter and expressed gratitude for the fans’ unwavering support throughout the years. The band’s chemistry and tight-knit performance were evident, and the energy never waned, even during the slower, more introspective moments of their set. The visual effects and plentiful pyrotechnics added a layer of intensity to the concert, as bursts of flames and dazzling light displays synced perfectly with the music, enhancing the overall experience. As the night drew to a close with the anthemic “Bulletproof” and their most popular song “I Stand Alone”, it was clear that Godsmack had left an indelible mark on the South Florida crowd that evening. The concert was a thrilling showcase of the band’s enduring talent and their ability to connect with their fans on a profound level.

Overall, the Godsmack concert at the Seminole Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida was a rock and roll extravaganza that exceeded all expectations. With Flat Black and Atreyu delivering impressive opening sets, and Godsmack’s electrifying performance, this night will undoubtedly be etched in the memories of all who were lucky enough to be in attendance.
