The Rev 3 tour touched down in Abbotsford, BC on Aug 28th, 2018. Fans for all 3 bands were treated to a full set of music by each group, with the tour providing a rotating line-up each night.
For those who live in the city of Vancouver, it is a long drive into the valley to reach the venue, but with an approximate capacity of 7K, it appeared to have sold well.
An impressive 4 pack AD were the openers and from what I hear, gave quite the performance (I was still stuck in traffic and unfortunately missed seeing them).
The band BUSH were first to hit the stage, and gave the audience a wonderful performance. Gavin and bandmates performed passionate renditions of their hits "Glycerine", "Everything Zen." as well as some new songs. Their performance was definitely a highlight of the night.
Stone Temple Pilots took the stage shortly after Bush and began the onslaught of hits and throwing in some new upcoming releases to the crowd. The set included an array of career highlights such as "Interstate Love Song" and "Plush." They also played some newer songs, such as "Meadow" with new singer Jeff Gutt. At times I was not sure if it was Scott Weiland on stage, as Lead singer Chris Butt appeared to be trying to find his own style at the same time.
Lastly, The Cult took the stage and played thru their hits with the particular " she sells sanctuary " to be a crowd favourite.
It was a concert with 3 strong bands from the 90's. Lots of happy guys enjoying music from their youth, that is for sure.
