‘When Legends Rise,’ Godsmack returns to rock Reno
The legends returned Friday night as Godsmack finally made its way back to rock Reno after four years, bringing Canadian rockers Monster Truck along for the ride.
Touring in support of its latest album, “When Legends Rise,” Godsmack also performed hits from the first self-titled album. Fans were ready. The real crowd pleaser was “Under Your Scars,” a song that represents the strength that is needed for those who have suicidal thoughts (or actions), bullying, addiction, abuse and so many other challenges.

Apart from the new material “Bulletproof” classics “Awake,” “Whatever” and “Voodoo” are always what fans look anticipate in concert.
Reno got a special treat before ending the night with 2003 hit “I Stand Alone.” Then Godsmack brought back their Canadian brothers Monster Truck to join in a rendition of the ever so classic AC/DC’s “Highway To Hell.”
Of course, everybody knew the lyrics to this rock ‘n’ roll staple. That wasn’t the only showstopper. Lead singer Sully Erna and drummer Shannon Larkin gave us all chills by doing a duo drum solo. Rotating drum kits circled the stage as Erna and Larkin played samples of classic rock songs along with complementing each other’s beats. Monster Truck and Godsmack both left OG and new fans well pleased.
