Justice For The Damned Justice are a four piece metal/hardcore band from Sydney Australia and they know how to rock. Justice For The Damned kicked off for Killswitch and man did they put on one hell of a set. As they left the stage they were excited for Killswitch and the venue was so packed you could barely move. The crowd went crazy and everyone was excited to kick the night off with a bang.
Next up was Killswitch, the crowd waited in anticipation and you could only be excited for this show. As the lights dimmed the fans started yelling out "killswitch" and as they walked on stage you knew their performance would be off the charts.
Killswitch kicked off their set with "The End of Heartache" and everyone screamed every word. Next up was "Strength Of The Mind" and Jesse jumped off the stage stood over the barriers while singing with his fans and held his microphone to the fans so they could sing with him. They continued the set with songs including " The Fire, When Darkness Falls, Always and The New Awakening". Jesse stopped and spoke to his fans and everyone cheered and laughed with the band.
HERE IS WHAT JESSE HAD TO SAY:
The last song of the night was Dio's Holy Divers. Everyone sang every word and Killswitch walked of stage as the lights dimmed. The fans started yelling "one more song" and Killswitch came back on stage "This is Absolution". When they were finished Jesse asked the crowd if they wanted to hear another song the fans started screaming out song titles and Killswitch started playing, after this song Killswitch said good night and thanked their fans for coming. It was a fantastic show and everyone had a great night.
