Live Review: Black Label Society @ PNE Forum, Vancouver – January 20th 2023

On a cold winter night in Vancouver, BC, fans of heavy metal music gathered at the PNE Forum for an unforgettable concert experience. The concert featured two legendary bands, Black Label Society and Anthrax. Black Label Society, led by the dynamic and charismatic Zakk Wylde, opened the night with a powerful performance that left the crowd in awe.

The concert started with the band’s opening song “Destroy & Conquer” which immediately set the tone for the night. The audience was immediately hooked and began to headbang and sing along to the lyrics. The band’s energy was contagious and the on-looker were fully immersed in the experience. The band continued to play a variety of songs from their extensive catalog, including “Destruction Overdrive,” “Funeral Bell,” “The Beginning…At Last,” “Heart of Darkness,” and “A Love Unreal.” Each song was met with cheers and applause from the attendees, who were clearly enjoying the performance.

One of the highlights of the night was when Zakk Wylde took to the piano for “You Made Me Want to Live” as a tribute to Dimebag Darrel and Vinnie Paul. The venue was near silent, as silent as a metal show can be, as Zakk’s fingers gracefully moved over the keys, playing the emotional ballad. It was a powerful moment that left many hearts warmed.

After the tribute, the band delved into “In This River,” “Trampled Down Below,” “Set You Free,” and “Fire It Up”, closing the night with “Suicide Messiah” and “Stillborn.” The fans were on their feet, screaming the lyrics and headbanging along to the music.
