Orlando is the home to the creation of many successful musical acts and Alter Bridge is one of them. They chose to kick off their tour with their first stop at the House of Blues on October 4, 2013. It was their only U.S. performance for the entire year before heading overseas for the next several months.
There is no doubt that the phrase “sold-out” will be commonly heard and seen when it comes to getting tickets to see Alter Bridge for their entire tour. They sold out their first and only U.S. show. Their stellar performance is still buzzing the social media streams and is unofficially being named the concert of the year.
Alter Bridge debuted their new album “Fortress” live in front of all of their local fans and close friends. Before their set, even Slash gave them a shout-out on Twitter: “All the best to @alterbridge for a great tour! Knock ‘em dead! Iiii]:)’”
Myles Kennedy (lead singer/guitar) crushed the entire set with his extraordinary range of vocals while Mark Tremonti (lead guitar/vocals) shredded the night away with his jaw dropping solos. Brian Marshall (bassist) is a great bass player that keeps the low end tight while Scott Phillips (percussion) is the rhythm keeper that ended the set with more energy than he came out with.
Alter Bridge will definitely be having the time of their lives on their world tour promoting their latest release of “Fortress” which is by far their best music yet.
Alter Bridge was formed in Orlando back in 1994. The band consists of lead guitarist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips. They all originally formed the band Creed until their singer (Scott Stapp) parted ways due to creative differences. In 2004, the remaining members then found guitar and singer extraordinaire Myles Kennedy to replace Stapp.
Alter Bridge’s latest and fourth studio album, Fortress (Alter Bridge/EMI/Capitol), is expected to be released on October 8, 2013.
