Written By: Brandon Delano

Breaking Benjamin made a stop at Richmond’s The National on Thursday night. The band continues to tour in support of their 2015 release, Dark Before Dawn which hit the number one spot on the U.S. Billboard 200. 

RED got the sold out show started with an energizing set. The Nashville based band led by Michael Barnes played a nine song set which set the tone for the night. The band released the 10th Anniversary Edition of End of Silence back in June of last year, the album which went gold can be purchased HERE. The full setlist from the night can be seen below.

Closing out the night was the band everyone had come out to see, Breaking Benjamin. The band gave fans their moneys worth playing a 17 song set which included a medley of Tool, Rage Against The Machine, Nirvana, Pantera, and Metallica. The set contained all the fan favorites including, “So Cold,” “Sooner or Later,” “I Will Not Bow,”, and was closed out with “The Diary of Jayne”. With Starset playing just around the corner it was no surprise that Dustin Bates joined Breaking Benjamin on stage for “Breath”.
