Godsmack Live Photos From Beacon Theatre In New York, NY

Boston’s Godsmack crashed into Manhattan on July 23 and laid down a two hour set of hard rock.

Fans packed the venerable Upper West Side’s Beacon Theatre for a rare, all-seated Godsmack show which prevented mosh pits but did nothing to stop the usual beer chugging, headbanging and fistpumping that are hallmarks of Sully Erna and friends’ live show. The band played obligatory cuts off their newer albums, but they saved plenty of room for old favorites like “Awake,” “Keep Away,” and an extra-vicious “Whatever.” Godsmack also included their usual jams like the Betalla de los tambores drum duel, and they worked in snippets of classic rock staples like “Back in Black,” “Walk This Way,” and “Enter Sandman.” They closed out the night with a special treat in the form of a cover of the Beatles’ “Come Together,” tagging the end of the seven-minute spectacle with the solo and end riff from “Stairway to Heaven.”

Godsmack get right back on the road next month for a fresh tour with special openers Halestorm.

We Deliver!
