Alter Bridge revisit the Ritz Raleigh better than ever

Photos by Luke Jamroz

Since early 2004, Alter Bridge, from Orlando, Florida, have been putting out some amazing rock music, touring, and even played a festival or three. The group consists of four members, all of which have known each other in some way prior to the formation to the band. Members Scott Phillips (drums) and Mark Tremonti (lead guitarist and backing vocals), and Brian Marshall (bass) have been in a band together since 1993 when the trio along with Scott Stapp formed the band Creed. When Creed disbanded in 2003, the guys weren’t going to let their career in music die. They quickly found Kennedy who had previously been in the group The Mayfield Four and set to work.

Fast forward to 2017, and here we are: a solid tour, a core group of fans, and a plentiful discography to back ’em up.

Alter Bridge has definitely grown as a group since their founding in 2003, but one thing has stayed the same: their love for music and their fans. This group of guys would give you the shirt off of their backs if you needed it and that is one of the things that make them not only amazing musicians, but amazing humans as well.

Fortunately, the boys in AB got to keep their shirts, but they left every other part of them on the Ritz Raleigh stage. Playing crowd favorites from a plethora of albums kept the rowdy Raleigh crowd on their toes.

Opening up for the phenoms were Sons of Texas and All That Remains, some of the genre’s most well known bands. Sometimes bills just work out that way, huh?
