Breaking Benjamin

August 28, 2023

Heavy metal returned to Blossom Music Center on Sunday night as a triple bill of metal bands including Jinjer, Breaking Benjamin and Disturbed took the stage to headbang throughout the brisk evening.

Disturbed is still out promoting their 2022 release, Divisive.  Dave Draiman and the rest of the boys delivered a great set of 2000's metal and hard rock.

"Hey You" got the show off to a rollicking start, while "Then Thousand Fists" saw at least that many rise up from the pavilion and lawn at Blossom.

A PSA video was shown about mental health and addiction before the band went into an acoustic version of "A Reason To Fight"  Draiman stayed on stage to address the audience about the demons of depression and addiction.  He let everyone know that many people are suffering and that they are not alone.  He said, "I am sick and tired of seeing my friends die!"  He continued, "I miss Chester, I miss Chris, I miss Scott," referencing the three lead singers that have died from those two aforementioned demons.

In a very moving segment, he also told the audience that he almost joined his friends this past February when he was in a very dark place.  But he said his son and all of his fans made him not do it.

The bands two biggest cover songs also made the setlist, "Land Of Confusion" and a great version of "The Sounds Of Silence."

The main set closed with "The Light" and "Stricken."  The band returned to rock out on "Unstoppable" and their first big hit, "Down With The Sickness."

Headbanging concluded with "Inside The Ring."

Breaking Benjamin was the second act on the bill and the band from Wilkes-Barre, PA delivered the goods.

Their thirteen song set consisted mostly of songs from the albums Phobia and We Are Not Alone.
