Concert Review | Rock on the Range: Zombie, Slash give crowd enough...

There are 44 comments on the Columbus Dispatch story from May 23, 2010, titled Concert Review | Rock on the Range: Zombie, Slash give crowd enough.... In it, Columbus Dispatch reports that:

Shaun Morgan of Seether performs on the main stage. Rock on the Range, a blistering outdoor bacchanal where uncouthly phrased T-shirts and glow-in-the-dark devil-horn headbands are de rigueur - and baring one's breasts atop a companion's shoulders can easily win as much audience affection as a headlining band - is about more than skin and sin.

Only good band on this bill was Deftones. Everyone else is horrible, especially limp bizkit.

Seether lost all credibility as hard rock band when they covered "Careless Whisper". I'm not going to pretned I don't like the orginal but Seether's version isn't inventive enough to stand on its own and it has no place in ROTR. Power ballads are simply played out. That became such a cliche in the early 90s.

Next year ROTR is going to feature Air Supply, Howard Jones and Tears for Fears.

This show might have been disappointing but there's nothing more limp that throwing a "back in my day" comment down. You, sir, might have listened to some good music in your day but you clearly didn't hear it.

I am so tired of reading reviews from newspapers that put down our great shows. Maybe next year you should send a real concert goer out to review RoTR from the pit. There was not a single bad performance or dull moment throughout both nights. It is, the tie wearing Monday - Friday/Act like a Rocker on the weekend, paper reviewers that are ruining the rock industry, not the bands. The show from the pit was amazing and I hope you don't discourage readers who did not have a chance to go from going next year.

Well most people who get in mosh pits are 16 year old high schoolers, not someone with a credible job. I will agree that most Dispatch concert reviews are a joke, but cmon...you didn't have to go to this concert to know it was going to be horrible. Limp Bizkit, Papa Roach, Puddle of Mud, Seether, Three Days Grace, Godsmack??? That is the all time lamest lineup in the history of "rock" if you want to call it that. I agree with the above poster...the Deftones was the only band worth seeing here. You should be ashamed if you spent money on a ticket to this concert where part of the proceeds are going to Fred Durst.

The dispatch can keep writing the BS reviews, and you can have your views on the age of the crowd, but I was surrounded in a pit full of 20-40 Years old newly made friends who knew the lineup beforehand and had a great time. 30k Plus fans knew the lineup beforehand and it seems everyone had a great time except for the "experts" who write reviews. Going to be good to see another 30,000 show up for a "terrible" lineup again next year! I hope they bring the 16 year old folks bring their grandmas to the pit again because they had a blast! Keep up the good work reviewers!

its one thing to write a review about a rock show. But when you send someone who obviously isnt a rock fan to review it, your gonna get a shit review. and thats just what this was. Limp Bizkit blew the show away, ya people left, but he obviously forgot to mention the thousands upon thousands who stayed to watch them. this is why i dont read the dispatch most of the time, its full of bias reviews from smug ass holes who think their word is always right.

This 60 year old sat in the parking lot of Lowe's and listened to Slash after going in and buying drain cleaner. Slash is a true guitar god and he smoked last nite. I really enjoyed hearing it.

Too bad the guy who wrote this is obviously some old dude. He points out three bands out of a performance of well over 30 bands. Great. And he did an awfully bad job of critiquing this show. This festival is not about flashbacks or turning back the clock. It's about realizing that the state of rock music is actually quite ROCKING. I am 28 years old. I have been to a lot of rock concerts, seen over 100 bands. The best festival music wise I have seen in terms of overall lineup was Woodstock '99. I can honestly say from then to now, this was some of the best magic at a US festival ever when it came to a rocking crowd. The pits were HUGE and the bands were sizzling. Bullet For My Valentine's pits up front felt like I was standing at Korn's woodstock performance. Killswitch, as usual, was lights out. Slash with Myles Kennedy might not have ignited the crowd the way some of the heavier groups do, but their performance was downright BRILLIANT. Five Finger brought the early fireworks, as did Drowning Pool, Puddle of Mudd, and Sevendust did on day one. The third stage was absolutely MONSTROUS when Nonpoint lit it up, as did Taproot and others on day two. This is, without question, the best music festival in America today. I drove 415 miles from Virginia to see it and frankly I'd go a lot longer.
