Staind -Hard Rock Tulsa 09-22-2022
Staind rolled into Tulsa last Thursday night and played to a very enthusiastic crowd at The Hard Rock Tulsa. I just moved to the Tulsa area from Massachusetts so it just seemed fitting that my first Tulsa area show was a band that hails from Massachusetts.
The lights went down and Van Halen’s ‘Unchained’ was played over the P.A. system and you knew it was going to be a high energy show. The band came out with a killer version of ‘Eyes Wide Open’ and proceeded to tear through song after song. The set included songs spanning their 27 year career including my favorites ‘ Mudshovel’ , It’s Been Awhile, and Outside. You can see the full setlist here.
I have seen Staind more times than I can count and they have delivered every single time and tonight was no different. Guitarist Mike Mushok absolutely tears it up and bassist Johnny April is incredible as is drummer Sal Giancarelli and Aaron Lewis is well, Aaron Lewis. His voice is immediately recognizable and resonates with me.
They are done with this tour but I would imagine they will be back as rumor has it there will be some new Staind music next year…lets hope!
