Commodore Ballroom
Wednesday, February 14, 2018

VANCOUVER – Black Label Society unleashed a Valentine’s Day massacre on the Commodore Ballroom with a mammoth two hour set, featuring tracks that spanned the entirety of their career. When the curtains were drawn, the almighty group erupted the venue with “Genocide Junkies” from their 2002 record 1919 Eternal.

Touring in honour of their newest record Grimmest Hits, BLS sprinkled some heavy hitting new tunes in their repertoire such as their recent singles: “Trampled Down Below,” and “Room of Nightmares” as well as the mellow “All That Once Shined” and thrashing “A Love Unreal.”

After a tribute to the fallen Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell Abbott during a heartfelt performance of “In This River,” the band continued their triumphant destruction of the Commodore. At one point near the end of the set, lead guitarist-frontman Zakk Wylde burst through the audience with his axe, propped himself up on the Commodore bar, and engaged in what felt like a 15 minute marathon of ripping guitar solos. The audience loved every second of it.

When we thought that was the end of it, the metal icon ran back to the stage and Black Label Society grooved with their hit “Fire It Up.” Finally, the set was ended with their ever-popular track: “Stillborn.”
