After an early morning, and a long drive I was ready for some Anthrax. The Orbit Room in Grand Rapids MI was the first stop on Anthrax’s US tour.
I had to get to the venue early that day to help set up for the Anthrax Army (Fan Club) Meet & Greet. I photographed the two fans who had purchased the VIP M&G packages while they met the band and got all their stuff signed. Since there were only the two of them the band hosted the M&G on their tour bus.
After the M&G, it was time for some dinner. Six and a half hours on the road, and I was starving. I had dinner with a few friends, and then it was back to the venue to shoot the show.
Lighting in the venue was pretty craptacular, so I had to work to get any decent shots. My camera stayed at 3200 ISO for a good 90% of the night. Still, it was Death Angel, Testament, and Anthrax. Three bands that I absolutely love, so it was worth it.
