It was a blistering hot and humid evening in Raleigh, North Carolina when Slayer, Lamb of God and Behemoth stopped at the Red Hat Amphitheater on July 20, 2017. The heat index put the temps well above 100 degrees, but that didn’t stop the masses from showing up early to this show. All you could see was a sweaty sea of black t-shirts that went on and on for what seemed like forever! So many in attendance were worried about staying hydrated, but my main concern was that I hoped everyone remembered to apply deodorant before they left their houses.
The setlist for each band is listed below and to paraphrase the late, great Roddy Piper: “They came to chew bubble gum and kick ass and they were all out of bubblegum.” I’m not sure how Behemoth managed to keep their makeup from melting off of their faces. Randy Blythe bounced all around the stage during LOG’s entire set and even got a little political at a few points. If it was hot before Slayer took the stage, just imagine how it heated up with their flames on-stage that shot up about twenty feet into the air!
