Tattoo laden rock outfit headlines this year's Jagermeister Tour
Buckcherry eliminated any doubt that they are the quintessential rock band Thursday night in Denver while headlining the 2011 Jagermeister Music Tour. Just like in the prime days of Motley Crue, Guns and Roses and Aerosmith, Buckcherry had all the elements of arena rock: ramps and grated platforms on the stage, tattoos covering their bodies (including the fingers, which is important to reach new horizons of rocker-ness), fans blowing their hair while rocking, cymbal stands made of chains ... the list could go on and on. And there was no doubt that the crowd loved every second of it. Rocker horns were held high in the air and the mosh pit was flowing like a tropical storm.
The Fillmore show featured a packed lineup of five bands, including a local act, The Damned Things, All That Remains, Hellyeah, and, of course, Buckcherry. Each of the bands on tour with Jagermeister have headlined their own shows in the past, and have legitimate followings, so having a heavy hitter like Buckcherry who has toured with the biggest and best rock bands was more than appropriate.
Buckcherry was no doubt the favorite of the night, playing a high-energy set without compromising musical quality. They played not only some of their hits such as "All Night Long" but also some newer material that both rocked hard, but also mellowed out in a few ballad-esque moments. Their stage presence was flawless, and a great way to end a long night of hard rocking!
