In This Moment’s Hellpop Tour 7/9/2016

Written By: Brandon Delano


In This Moment’s Hellpop tour featuring HELLYEAH, Shaman’s Harvest and Sunflower Dead shattered attendance records at Shiley Acres on Saturday with more than 3300 fans braving the heat to witness one of the hottest tours at the moment.

Sunflower Dead was the first band on the tour to take to the stage. Despite having an early set time they had no problem setting the tone for the rest of the day. The bands nu-metal style had mosh pits opening up as well as got people up in the air crowd surfing. Sunflower Dead are currently out touring in support of their latest release “It’s Time to Get Weird” which was released back in late October. After the bands performance I was able to catch up with vocalist Michael Del Pizzo, where we talked about the bands formation, sound, and remaining plans for 2016. You can see the interview HERE.

Sunflower Dead Setlist:

You’re Dead to Me
It’s Time to Get Weird
Mother Mortis
Dance with Death
The Point of Decision

Shaman’s Harvest had been tapped to pull double duty on Saturday, as they were also booked to play the show’s after party at Winchester’s The Blue Fox, but first they took to the stage at Shiley Acres and wowed everyone in attendance with their short but rocking six song set.

Shamans Harvest Setlist:

Blood in The Water
Dirty Diana
Country As Fuck
In Chains
Dragonfly (with Behind Blue Eyes intro)

Seeing HELLYEAH at Shiley Acres has become a yearly ritual, and if their performance on Saturday showed one thing, it was that the band continues to grow and become heavier with each new release. The guys took the stage on fire with a relentless ten song set that included many tracks from their latest release “Undeniable”, as well as the Phil Collins cover “I Don’t Care Anymore”


Demons in the Dirt
Sangre por Sangre (Blood for Blood)
Cross to Bier (Cradle of Bones)
War in Me
Say When
I Don’t Care Anymore (Phil Collins cover)

After being forced to cancel their European tour earlier this year, In This Moment decided to take their Hellpop tour out before gearing up for their late summer run with Korn and Rob Zombie. Maria and the guys were in great form as they played a ten song set that left the fans wanting more. The band saw the departure of drummer Tom Hane earlier this year and has tapped Kent Diimmel to fill the shoes left empty by his departure. I had the chance to speak with Kent backstage for a bit before the show where he stated how grateful he was for the opportunity that he has been given, and is very excited for the current tour. Look for the band to possibly headline another tour after their run with Rob Zombie and to enter the studio to begin writing the follow up to “Black Widow” this winter.

In This Moment Setlist:

Sick Like Me
Black Widow
Sex Metal Barbie
The Fighter
Fallen Heroes
Big Bad Wolf
