Seether, Black Stone Cherry dazzle fans at sold out show

HOUSTON — Thousands of rock fans turned out for one of the best shows of the spring this past Wednesday night.

A sold out crowd packed Warehouse Live in Houston, courtesy of another sensational free concert opportunity provided by Blackhorse Limo, to watch rock acts Seether and Black Stone Cherry. Although each band has its own unique sound, both are quite exceptional at what they do.

South African rock outfit Seether performed a massive 15 song, 75 minute power packed set of hits as the group tours in advance of its forthcoming album due to be released in July. Although the group did not play any new songs, fans were not disappointed.

Vocalist and guitarist Shaun Morgan sounded in fine form, especially on songs such as "Gasoline" and "Fine Again." The band's set included other hits "Breakdown," "Broken," and "Rise Above This," as well as "Country Song" and "The Gift."

Seether's light show was only surpassed by its set lists, and the band saved the best for last as it closed the show with "Fake It" and "Remedy."

Kentucky rock outfit Black Stone Cherry is touring in support of its forthcoming May release, "Magic Mountain," and the band's 45 minute opening set was full of well known songs and new tracks to keep the Houston-faithful happy.

The band opened up its set with the classic track "Rain Wizard" from the band's debut record, before unleashing its new track, "Me and Mary Jane," on the audience.

The group was relentless with its set and energy and powered through song after song, including tracks "Blind Man," "White Trash Millionaire," "In My Blood," and the crowd favorite, "Blame It on the Boom Boom." The band debuted its next single, "Fiesta Del Fuego," before closing the night with the monstrous, "Lonely Train."
