M3: Day 2
Eight bands were on tap for Day Two. It was kicked off in fine fashion with Enuff Z’Nuff opening their set with “Magical Mystery Tour”.
Hurricane were next and capped off their set with their 1988 hit “I’m On to You”.
The (Still) Original BulletBoys brought a ton of energy to the stage while Steelheart bookended their set with “Blood Pollution” and “We All Die Young” from the “Rockstar” movie soundtrack.
Adler performed an array of Guns ‘n Roses classics sprinkled in with a few new songs featuring singer Ari Kamen.
Winger culled songs from their many years of chart toppers.
Accept, who many mentioned as one of the best bands of the weekend, wrapped up their set with the ever popular “Balls to the Wall” to the delight of the crowd.
Queensryche closed out the evening with an amazing set which was a just reward for those patient enough to make it through an amazing 2nd day of music.
