Waking up and seeing all the posts about AJ Pero’s passing was a shock to everyone across the world. AJ Pero drummer for Twisted Sister and Adrenaline Mob was found dead on his tour bus the day before Adrenaline was on route to perform at Starland Ballroom with Drowning Pool. What I thought was really cool Drowning Pool was the headlining band but gave up their spot to allow Adrenaline Mob pay tribute to their drummer by headlining the show and arranging some cool guests and friends of all to join them on stage. Drummers Mike Portney and Chad Szeilga split the set on skins and JJ French from Twisted Sister went on stage and performed with the band. It was a very emotional night but very well done on such short notice. I was glad to be there and be part of an evening that meant so much to family and friends of AJ. Twisted Sister just announced a benefit show at Starland Ballroom in honor of AJ Pero on June 13th.
Joining Adrenaline Mob and Drowning Pool on the bill was Full Devil Jacket and some awesome local openers Common Wealth, Raftree, Scottish Widows and Brand of Julez. Looking forward to the continuing touring of both Adrenaline Mob and Twisted Sister in the near future.
