Last night I got the opportunity to see Buckcherry at Mill City Nights in Minneapolis, they were absolutely amazing.

This was the first time I had seen a show at the venue and it was a great experience.

The doors opened at 8 p.m. and VIA took the stage at 9 p.m. sharp.  I thought they sounded pretty good and they had a lot of energy.  Being a fan of horror movies, I really liked the Michael Myers mask they had on stage.

Pinwheel was the next band to take the stage and they were also great. I really liked them a lot and the crowd was really getting into them.

As soon as Pinwheel finished their set, you could feel the excitement building up. 

Mill City Nights was completely packed, but the one thing that really stood out for me, was that there wasn’t a bad place to watch a concert.  The stage is raised extremely high so you can see the bands very clearly, plus there are also monitors everywhere showing what’s going on stage.  It’s is a great set up.

As soon as Buckcherry took the stage, the entire place exploded and you could feel the energy of the fans. The band opened with “Lit Up.” 

Buckcherry is a band that I have seen about ten times in concert and I will continue to see them every chance I get. They put on an amazing show that is very entertaining to watch and I really enjoy their music.
Buckcherry played all of their hits such as “Sorry” and “Gluttony” and also some songs off of their new album “F.”  I hate to spoil set lists so I will not go into detail.

Buckcherry sounded great and you could tell the entire band was having a great time playing in front of their Minnesota fans and interacting with each other.

I also got the opportunity to interview Buckcherrry earlier in the day and we talked about their new album “F” and their new record label F-Bomb Records.  You can view the interview at the top of the story.

I absolutely had a blast seeing Buckcherry last night at Mill City Nights in Minneapolis.  The venue was awesome and it is such a great place to go and watch a concert.  It’s easy to find and there isn’t a bad seat in the house. 

Buckcherry is a band that everyone must see in my opinion.  They put on a fun and energetic show that is extremely entertaining to watch. 

I can’t wait to see Buckcherry again!
