Godsmack on the East Coast

2007-03-17 by Otisbum | 9 Comments
The hard rockers of Godsmack will hit the road in May for a run of US shows primarily along the East Coast, reports liveDaily.com. The Grammy-nominated band is set to get things rolling with a May 5 performance at Memphis' Beale Street Music Festival. From there, the guys will hit cities in Alabama, Florida, the Carolinas, Georgia, New York and Pennsylvania.

Godsmack is supporting its fourth studio album, "Godsmack IV," which hit the streets last April. The record -- the band's first full-length in three years -- debuted atop The Billboard 200 album chart and spawned the hit single "Speak."

Frontman Sully Erna, in a statement, said the set shows off a more mature, more defined Godsmack. "I let go of the steering wheel a bit, allowing the band control over the writing," he said. "With me stepping away to get an outside view, I came up with lyrics for what I viewed as almost another group entirely. It's a lot more rootsy than the metal edge we're used to playing."

Erna released his memoir, "The Paths We Choose," last month. The book details the singer's struggles growing up on the mean streets of Lawrence, MA. In January, a tearful Erna reportedly accepted the key to that city.

Tour dates are below:
05/05 - Memphis, TN - Tom Lee Park (Beale Street Music Festival)
05/06 - Mobile, AL - Saenger Theater
05/08 - Jacksonville, FL - Moran Theater
05/09 - North Charleston, SC - North Charleston PAC

I might go see them when they're in NC.
Wish they would've had another SC date though.

Being a Godsmack fan and a Massachusetts dweller myself, I think it's pretty dumb they're not scheduled to tour in their own home state on an East Coast tour.

I've heard these aren't all the dates, and yeah it's odd they aren't touring on the northern half of the east coast.

Well it is the East coast, you know...
I've only ever liked two Godsmack songs ever, I believe they were Bad Religion and Awake.
