"What a Day" with Nonpoint at Hartford's Webster Theater

What better way to start the weekend than by rocking out to some Nonpoint? They did it right this past Friday at The Webster in Hartford; I have seen them numerous times and as always, they know how to put on one hell of a show.
The mixed murmurs of the crowd died down as soon as the lights dimmed and the overhead metal music came to a screeching halt. The chatter morphed into excited cheers as the members of Nonpoint emerged from the darkness. Not a moment was wasted as guitarist Dave Lizzio began to play the familiar introduction to “What a Day” and the crowd sang along passionately with front man Elias Soriano. Soon enough, a circle pit formed and bodies began to bounce to the beat.
Nonpoint continued with their killer songs like “Hands Off”, “I Said It”, and “Hive”, but they were just getting the crowd warmed up with what they have in store. By the time they got to “That Day”, the fans had worked up a huge amount of sweat, but that did not stop the pits from moving nonstop. A few times, the bouncers broke them up but they were too wired to give up on their creation of insanity. Nonpoint then briefly slowed the tempo down with their killer cover of Phil Collin’s classic, “In the Air Tonight”. They picked the pace up again with “Alive and Kicking”, “The Wreckoning”, and “There’s Going to be a War!” Of course, they saved the best for last with “Bullet With a Name”, a perfect way to end a wild Friday night.
To say the least, Nonpoint never disappoints with their performances and the fans’ energy was through the roof. Be sure to check out their future tour dates with Megadeth, you do not want to miss their shows!
