The Show.

July 5th brought Godsmack back to The Joint inside of the Hard Rock Hotel as part of the official UFC Fight Week concerts. Check out our pre-show article HERE.

The band’s logo was plastered on the giant black curtain. As the curtain came down, the packed venue erupted in screams. Members Sully Erna, Robbie Merrill, Tony Rombola, and Shannon Larkin took the stage.

Vocalist Sully Erna greeted the Las Vegas crowd just before the band dove into opener “When Legends Rise”. It’s no surprise that the crowd sang every word right back.

As the band went into “1000hp”, the pyrotechnics went off. Although those of us in the photo pit knew it was coming, the heat was intense. How in the hell those guys do it on stage is beyond me.

Godsmack delivered a well rounded, seventeen song set. The setlist consisted of both old, new, and covers, leaving fans delighted by the Vegas stop of the When Legends Rise Tour.

Stephanie " Stephy " Muzio (formerly Hayward) - Public Relations / Writer/ Photographer and Co-Founder of ZRockR Magazine Co-host of ZRockR Magazine LIVE! Stephy was raised on rock and roll. Originally from Illinois, Stephy is the daughter of an aspiring metal guitarist and a former rock n roll radio dj. Stephy’s first concert at the tender age of 8 was Rob Zombie at the original Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas, where she happily threw horns up and sang along to "Dragula" with the best of them ( she incidentally loves horror films too!) . She performed with the VGA choir at the 2007 Video Game Awards show at Mandalay Bay when it was hosted by Samuel L Jackson, sharing the stage with the likes of Foo Fighters as well as Kid Rock. An LVA alum, when she isn’t singing or playing herself (she plays a few different instruments), she is out in support of the local scene and at her friends gigs around the southwest and even when she is back home in Illinois! She has written as well as done some photography previously for a couple of smaller zines including Vegas SoundZ when it was in print. Stephy takes the adage of ” If it’s too loud that is just too damn bad! ” to heart- after all- she was raised around screaming guitars, thunderous drums, production studios and only Led Zeppelin and Nirvana played extremely loud would put her to sleep as a kid! Stephy is a large part of the backbone of ZRockR.
