The Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, WI was the setting for 102.9 FM’s Hog Fest 2022. Performers included headliner Godsmack with supporting bands that included Three Days Grace, Asking Alexandria, Wage War, and Lilith Czar.
The arena goes dark and the crowd erupts as Asking Alexandria prepares to take the stage. As smoke begins to crawl across the stage and the lights slowly come up, guitarists Cameron Liddell and Ben Bruce emerge from the dark with the opening notes of “Alone Again” from the album See What’s On The Inside. As the music builds, the guitarists are joined by bassist Sam Bettley and drummer James Cassells. The band launches full on into the song as vocalist Danny Worsnop runs on stage and joins in!
The energy that Asking Alexandria put forth could be felt by all in attendance. It is always a great time when the fun the band is having translates to the audience. Worsnop takes time in between songs to let the crowd know that they had missed being able to perform during the pandemic and were grateful to be back!
Even though it was a shorter set, Asking Alexandra left it all out there for the fans in Milwaukee! I had only seen them once before and that was when they were first rising to fame. Now I know why fans react the way they do when seeing them live. The interaction between the band members and the bands interaction with the crowd makes them a memorable act!
