Five Finger Death Punch with Breaking Benjamin

Five Finger Death Punch with Breaking Benjamin played at the Crown Complex in Fayetteville. The music and light/laser show were excellent. 

 

Benjamin Burnley of Breaking Benjamin was doing his dance thing while singing and the bit where he played his Star Wars lightsaber drum kit.

 

Ivan Moody came out in his FFDP war paint, praising America and our service members. Being that venue is near the largest military installation in the world, home of the Airborne, Fort Bragg, that went over well.

My only complaint is neither band used spotlights. The only song I saw that one was used was FFDP’s acoustic, Remember Everything. Other than that the show was dark unless the stage lights were on, especially when Breaking Benjamin played. I don’t know about you, but I prefer to see the artists when preforming. Spotlights should be used on the singer and musicians when playing solos, not leaving them as backlit silhouettes.
