It was definitely 80 minutes of in your face rock that Staind have come to be known for. They started off the show with the classic "Eyes Wide Open" and kept up the momentum with "Falling", "So Far Away", "Spleen", "Not Again", "Paper Wings" and the crowd favorite “Outside. All in all they played 14 crushing songs total ending the night with an encore of "Mudshovel" and “It’s Been Awhile" and finally “For You.”

They definitely put on more of an intimate rock show if that's even possible. There wasn't an elaborate stage set up like
some of the other acts that roll through. With the raw emotional song writing they are known for, it made for a great night that had everyone standing and wanting more.

Be sure to check their website for a list of upcoming tour dates as well as Mohegan Suns site for other tours and events.

View slideshow for some shots from the nights show.
