GIGANTOUR at Oklahoma City Zoo Amphitheater

gigantour oklahoma city 2013

So we had the pleasure of covering the Gigantour show in Oklahoma City last Tuesday and I can say with confidence that it is a great festival despite the issues we ran into!  The day started off with us waiting outside the venue for our first interview of the day.  It was REALLY hot at this point but we were lucky enough to have our interview in a nice air conditioned room.  We sat down with Device drummer Will Hunt and talked about everything from Device to the Super Hero or Villain he would be if he could choose.  After our interview we waited around for a little bit for our next interview with Metal newcomers Death Division who were about to take the stage.  The guys were super nice and asked us to come on stage with them to photograph the band as drummer Time Yeung was in really bad need of some pics.  These guys absolutely KILLED it!  Coming out with the hard hitting “I’ve Had Enough” then going directly into my favorite song of their set “We Are The Fallen” and ending a couple songs later with “Can You Hear Me Now” in which lead singer Sean De La Tour really shows off his vocal abilities.  Better be on the lookout for them as they have some badass songs that will kick your ass live!  After their set we did our interview with those guys that is up on the website now.  Those guys are awesome and I can’t wait to see their show again.  Next up for us was Hellyeah and they completely killed it as well with their southern style of heavy metal running through hits such as “You Wouldn’t Know”, “Cowboy Way” and Drink, Drank, Drunk”.  You always know you’re in for a wild ride when Hellyeah is on the stage.  So while we wait around for Device a storm decides to blow through the area taking over an hour to pass and cancelling their set for the day.  The crowd became restless and chanted “rain or shine” over and over to let the event staff know they demanded the concert continue.  We were pretty bummed about Device being canceled but not much we could do about it and the show must go on!  So next up was Black Label Society and they came out and kicked major ass.  I have seen them a few times and they never cease to amaze me with their great performances!  So we were waiting around for Megadeth to come on and everything was all set and ready to go until suddenly…..tragedy struck.  Some lighting had taken out all the power to that whole part of town and we got the bad news that the show was canceled and Megadeth would not be performing.

So despite those few setbacks I would still say that this was a great tour.  We had tons of fun with our interviews and covering the show.  I would for sure recommend going out to this tour if it hits your city!  (David Rader)
