Avatar traveled all the way from Sweden to completely blow away a Missoula crowd among a heavy hitting lineup. Check out the show details and photos!
I have been a huge Avatar fan for years now, and finally had the opportunity to see a live set this week at the first annual 96.3 The Blaze Backyard BBQ. Avatar was slotted behind headliners Breaking Benjamin as well as St. Asonia, but that didn’t mean Avatar wasn’t going to let you leave the show without remembering their set. A good dose of metal was exactly what the lineup needed, and Avatar brought exactly that both sonically and visually.
Frontman, Johannes Eckerström, is one of the most charismatic, funny, and all out original singers I have seen live in a long time. The whole time you felt you were inside some evil carnival fantasy with Avatar controlling the rides. I talked to a few people who were there mainly for the headliners, but said they were completely blown away by Avatar’s live set. It’s safe to say they made a few new fans that day.
