Shinedown’s 2013 Carnival of Madness tour truly has me at a loss for words. If I just throw around superlatives, they lose meaning… right?? I’ll use them anyways. They deserve it.
Brilliant. Stunning. Amazing. Unsurpassed. Surprising. Consummate.
These words do not just apply to one facet of what Shinedown brings; These words describe the performance, visual presentation, lyrical content, musicianship, showmanship, creativity, character, and even their supporting crew. These guys are masters of their craft and the performance thereof, master entertainers – and they truly focus on delivering an amazing experience for their audience.
I’ve known this for a while, and Shinedown’s sold-out Carnival of Madness performance in Cincinnati, OH on August 17th, 2013 only reminded me of these things.
I highly recommend catching this tour – and highly recommend taking a look through this slideshow of concert images.
I’ll let a massive pile of images speak for me at this time.
p.s. Fire dancers, circus performers and more. Wow. More on that in another post…
