Encore comes at you with “No Sanctuary”, “Empire” and “Eyes of a Stranger” again if Tate had a little brother it would probably be Todd.

The Shinedown curtains go up as it’s almost time for one of the headliners to hit the stage. Shinedown quickly sends of volt of energy in this casual Monday night crowd at the VBC
The band itself is tight as ever, front man Chris Robertson has the vocals and the smooth guitar licks to entice, there is just something about Southern Hard Rock that no matter which way you spin it, this modern and meaty blues-based rock will never die and this band is proof of it.
