Korn recently stopped in Ohio while on their summer tour and Hazy Eye Media’s “Man in the Midwest” Bill Garman was there to catch these classic metal masters at work. It was a soundboard show for the photographers, but well worth it for a fan of the band. The tour features Helmet and Evanescence as special guests. This show took place at the Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, OH on 8/23/22.

Anyway, in this photo flashback we’re viewing Bill’s pics of Korn (from the soundboard). Be sure to check the Official Korn Website for music, videos, news, and all upcoming tour dates. All images copyright and courtesy of Bill Garman.

The Weekend (Photo by Andy Jillson)

The Weekend put on an out-of-this-world performance at FedEx Field in Landover, MD on 7/30/22. This was a sold-out show and my biggest show to date. This was also one of the most “high-tech” musical productions I’ve seen. I was there on the sidelines (w/ 10 other photographers) doing my best to capture some of the magic, but it was tough. So much chaotic excitement. Only had two songs to take pics and an extremely small space to stand. I had a blast, though!

The “After Hours Til Dawn Tour” is The Weekend’s first-ever stadium tour. Fans had been anxiously awaiting this show. After several delays due to COVID, concert-goers had their redemption. DC. MD, and VA residents were all in attendance. Anyway, in this photo flashback we’re viewing pics of The Weekend. Be sure to check The Weekend’s Official Website for music, news, and all upcoming tour dates. All images copyright and courtesy of Andy Jillson.

Animals As Leaders performed for a rabid sold out crowd at Soundstage in Baltimore’s inner harbor on 4/13/2022. This was a highly-anticipated show. Metalheads from DC, MD, VA (the DMV) and beyond filled the venue to its maximum capacity. The band were on tour in support of their 2022 album, Parrhesia, but the tour has now come to an end.

I was fortunate to be at this show, and too be the only photographer in the photo pit. What a treat!
