On September 21, 2016 in downtown Memphis, TN, I
had the opportunity to see 3 Doors Down, Pop Evil, and Red Sun Rising at the
Orpheum Theatre. The venue, classic and beautiful, typically hosting plays and musicals,
is ready for a night of good ol’ rock n’ roll with a stellar line up of Red Sun
Rising, Pop Evil, and 3 Doors Down.
Red Sun Rising kicked off the night with some serious
energy.  Being the newest of the bands playing
it took the crowd a few songs to warm up to them, but by their last few songs
the crowd was engaged and really enjoying their performance.
Pop Evil never disappoints. In May 2016 they
announced their new drummer, Hayley Cramer, and I had yet to hear them live
with the new addition. And boy was she impressive!  Their entire set was mind blowing, each song
performed with precision and an enormous amount of energy.

The
headliner, none other than 3 Doors Down, has been around since the late 90’s,
but they still rock the stage with absolute perfection. With
line-up changes over the last few years, I thought maybe they wouldn’t bring
it, but the new members click extremely well. 
The crowd was eating out of their hands by the end of their set, as they
should have been, their entire set was flawless. Their positive vibes and
overall generosity and love for our service people oozes from them.  It was so refreshing to have their positivity
when there is so much negativity in the world.

Overall, I loved the experience.  I was introduced to a new band, Red Sun
Rising, and I was able to see two of my favorites perform, Pop Evil and 3 Doors
Down.  Check out our other pictures on our website (bloodrockmedia.com), facebook (facebook.com/Bloodrock Media), or Instagram (instragram.com/Bloodrock Media).
