Fans flocked to the opening night of the tour and got exactly what they would expect from a Social D show: great tunes and great banter from frontman Mike Ness. One of the great things about Social D is their ability to put a great twist on a cover. This was evident in Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” (performed acoustic then electric in the encore) and the Rolling Stones’ “Under My Thumb.”
One disappointment, though, was the absence of “Story of My Life, “Ball and Chain” and “Bad Luck,” from their set. At least they were able to pull off “Prison Bound,” an acoustic rendition of “Reach for the Sky” and “Far Behind” to keep the crowd happy.
