Columbus, Ohio / Rock On The Range 5/22/11


As I mentioned in the beginning of this tour, we’re kind of a big deal these days and part of that is playing to hundreds of thousands a people a night. That’s why it’s no surprise that we were asked to play at Crew Stadium with Korn, A perfect Circle and a whole other slew of bands that sound exactly like us. At first we were a little put off, these bands had been touring for years and we didn’t want to steal their limelight. It would probably break their little metal hearts to see this arena packed butts to nuts with twenty-thousand Red Heads (On a serious note the term Red Heads is quite possibly the grossest thing that has ever been on this blog).

So we agreed to do it, but only if we played first, after the local battle of the bands winner, on the smallest stage of the festival. We like to keep it real!
But we still demanded that the gear had it’s own tent…
…that there was a salad bar backstage with all our favorite salads: Macaroni, chicken, tuna and potato.

And the fixin’s for one of David’s famous hamburger, hotdog, turkey burgers with vegetarian chili fries
Besides that it was like any other Red Fang show. Singing peoples body parts:
A two-hour wait for sno-cones:
Bloody dudes:
A real sexy merch area:

And fashion forward fans:

Nothing really to talk about…

Tour To Live!
