Monday night marked my last show working for the UCF Arena in Orlando and it was a doozy. Members of Bullet for My Valentine whipped their hair back and forth, Adam Gontier of Three Days Grace rocked his best power stance, and at least two guys from Avenged Sevenfold appeared as though they stepped right out of “The Lost Boys,” all before a nearly sold-out show.
Perhaps the most striking part of the night was the way in which one actor descended into view of the crowd: by the “neck” (actually by cables and a harness). Did it make any sense? No, but the crowd seemed to the enjoy the morbidity of a feigned hanging.
