Rise Against @ Abbotsford Centre – September 14th 2017

Rise Against @ Abbotsford Centre - September 14th 2017

It had been 10 years since I first, and last, saw American melodic hardcore band Rise Against.

The last time they were in town, they filled a vacant spot at Virgin Music Fest at Thunderbird Stadium. A spot made vacant by a rising band called Muse, that had to back out due to a change in their tour schedule.

Watching Rise Against on stage at Abbotsford Centre gave me all the feels.

They blasted the crowd with hit after hit.

Lead singer, Tim McIlrath, and the rest of the crew were explosive, running around the stage at a feverish pace.

I was thoroughly impressed with how hard they perform.
