VOLBEAT at Piere’s in Fort Wayne~Photos

I was very fortunate to get to photograph VOLBEAT at Piere’s Entertainment Center in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Having been the fifth time I’ve seen the band perform live, VOLBEAT continues to put on a killer live show. Their relentless North American touring has made this Denmark based band a force to be reckoned with in the United States with well over a million fans on Facebook and multiple hits playing on every rock radio station. It was a pleasure to see former Anthrax guitarist, Rob Caggiano shred along with the boys as Volbeat’s new addition to the band. He fit in like a glove and his stage personality was infectious and fun and he along with the rest of the guys were very cool to hang out with after the gig.

As of April 8th, VOLBEAT’s sixth studio album Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies is available now in stores and on iTunes. I would personally like to thank VOLBEAT and their management for the photo opportunity. If you’re looking for a rockin’ good time to spend with your friends and like to get rowdy with heavy guitar action and a little Johnny Cash on the side, check Volbeat’s tour dates and catch a show near you!
