Alter Bridge rocks the halls hard-core style
Hard rock is on the way and the band’s fans should be quick now, for StubHub holds tickets for Alter Bridge ready for you. The American rock band brings a fine fusion of metal, rock, post-grunge and hard riffs to you and they have enough years behind them to be well-established within the music scene.
A band born out of another successful one
Alter Bridge was founded by Mark Tremonti in 2004, who was also known for being a member of the band Creed, which enjoyed significant success in the 1990s. But it was time for a new line-up and sound. Tremonti pulled in his old band buddies Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips and Alter Bridge was brought to life with new singer Myles Kennedy. Creed shortly after drew their last breath for a while and the new band had all the footing it needed. Their first album that established their new sound was titled ‘One Day Remains’ and promptly achieved gold status. To establish their new band even further, the debut album managed to reach number 5 on the Billboard charts, where it remained for fourteen weeks. In 2007 their successful album ‘Blackbird’ was released and it bore the singles ‘Watch Over You’ and ‘Rise Today’, which also led to a big international tour that brought out a DVD that became a major selling hit on Amazon. Despite some crossovers with Creed (they had a reunion in 2009), the band has always stood for its own sound that carries rough tunes and delves into the metal direction, as well as post-grunge. They have amazed their fans with fantastic albums that regularly make it into the charts and receive critical acclaim, and whether you are already an established fan or want to check out this band, you can get your tickets for Alter Bridge conveniently on StubHub with a few clicks.

Total Guitar and other awards
The band’s song ‘Ties That Bind’ was, in fact, put in position 41 as the decade’s greatest song by Total Guitar. But many other magazines have positively reviewed the band as well. Ultimate Guitar Archive awarded their album ‘AB III’ seventh-best album of the year (2010) and Guitarist dubbed the guitar solo from ‘Blackbird’ the greatest of all time. Safe to say, these musicians know their turf and with tickets for Alter Bridge from StubHub you can see them live. Bands that have a similar sound that you may also enjoy include The Raven Age and Sevendust.
