Shinedown took the stage on a hot Tuesday night with Ayron Jones and Pop Evil on their Summer tour. They played at the Burton Cummings Theatre in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The Burt was packed at the start of the night as this show was delayed already due to the Pandemic. I had a few friends even come out to the show cause they were excited to finally see Shinedown for so long. Everyone loved both acts for the night but the crowd was singing ear to ear when Shinedown came on.
Ayron Jones had great energy from the beginning of the set and this was their first show playing back from playing in overseas in Paris. It was my first time seeing them totally worth it to see them and engaging great with the crowd they know how to put on a great show. They performed Take Me Away, Supercharged, Boys From the Puget Sound and a few others. Everyone in the pit was rocking out to them. Their set was 6 songs it went by so fast. Highly recommend checking out Ayron Jones band when they come to your city in this tour and future tours.
Pop Evil took to the stage next. I was probably the most excited to see Pop Evil the most. Everyone in the crowd knew basically every word from Pop Evil as they come to Winnipeg often when they can. They brought up for a song Egypt Central/Devour The Day Vocalist Blake Allison. Huge fan of Devour the day It was really cool getting to see Blake for my first time. Pop Evil performed Eye of the Storm, Waking Lions, Torn to Pieces and a few other hits.
Shinedown hits the stage and plays old and new songs, the crowd enjoyed every song, singing along and dancing to them all. I genially forgot some Shinedown songs then hearing them play 45, Call Me (my favourite shinedown song), Cut the Cord it was a good night. Shinedown seeing them my first time I really enjoyed them, the energy for sure was feeding the crowd as well. Everyone enjoyed every band that played on Tuesday night.
