Taking the stage with their latest single, “My Dying Time” off their recently released album, Catacombs of the Black Vatican it was clear from the start that Wylde is a natural performer. If there was one thing that he was born to do, its to play guitar. He plays so fluid, so natural, like he was born with one in his hands. He easily grabs the audience’s attention and holds it for the 90-minute set. His voice compliments Black Label’s music so perfectly, one couldn’t imagine anyone else singing their songs.

The highlight of the night was Wylde’s guitar solo. For what seemed like an hour, though it lasted at least 10 minutes, the man just went ballistic with his axe. Feeding off the frenzy of the crowd, it was obvious he loved what he was doing; giving the fans their money’s worth. It was him that they came to see, and as he moved about the stage, he gave each fan a great chance to see him up close.

A touching moment in the set was when Wylde took to the piano and played “Fallen Heroes,” a tribute to his long lost friend, Dimebag Darrell. Fans cheered in respect and were moved by the song.

For those of you who like guitar solos, this is the show for you. There is no shortage of amazing guitar riffs, and Wylde can shred like nobody’s business.
