Hinder The Pearl Theater - Las Vegas, CA 10/30/2008It was Hinder’s night, the night of their album release party at The Palms. The show has a new vibe compared to previous Hinder shows. They were playing new material and the crowd was digging it. The new album dropped on Election Day, November 4th. This is their follow-up to their hit album Extreme Behavior. The album is filled with new radio hits and rock ballads. Hinder is currently headlining the Jagermusic Tour with Rev Theory and Trapt supporting the bill. It makes for a great night of music.

Hinder The Pearl Theater - Las Vegas, CA 10/30/2008Hinder wasted no time and started with their first single off the new album “Use Me.” The crowd was already singing along. The entire set flowed smoothly between the rock ballads and the up temp songs. The night was filled with a great mix of music from their first album and new music. While listening to the new songs they performed I could smell radio hits all over it. Their newest single “Heaven Sent” is destined to be another one of their radio hits. The title track “Take It to The Limit” is also another catchy song with choruses that will wheel you in.

Throughout the night Austin’s mic stand would change. For those who have seen Hinder live before, they know his mic stand is filled with different colored bras. Tonight he also had the American flag waving from his stand. Now don’t read this wrong, it was on a completely different mic stand from the one with the bras. They had the same set they have been playing on for a while now. It contains a catwalk that wraps around the back of the drum kit. It’s made of chrome and is a perfect match for this rock band.

Austin, Blower, Mark, Mike, and Cody all looked very excited to be there onstage. Not only is it still early in the Jagermusic Tour, but that night there was a big party up at the Hugh Hefner Suite at the Fantasy Tower in The Palms. I know many of us were looking forward to that also. I can tell you at the after party, we got to see a look at the new comic book based on the life of Hinder. You know you are special when you get your own comic book. For more information you can check it out here.

Hinder The Pearl Theater - Las Vegas, CA 10/30/2008The setlist for the night:

Use Me

Heaven Sent – off Take it to the Limit
Take it to the Limit – off Take it to the Limit
Better Than Me
How Long
Best is Yet to Come – off Take it to the Limit
Up All Night

Thing for You – Austin said this was a new song, but I remember him saying that last year performing at the House of Blues in Vegas.
Lips of an Angel
Get Stoned

One would think the night’s festivities ended with Get Stoned, but it didn’t. The party was just getting started as the crowd and the boys headed up Fantasy Towers in Vegas to the Hugh Hefner Suite. I could tell you stories of what happened up there at the Party but you know the saying, “What happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas!”

    Thanks for this post! My girl and I will be seeing the Baltimore show, and I was curious as to what songs they might be playing on this tour.

  2. Tyler says:

    I went to that show :o

    Smile Empty Soul was an amazing band, most likely put on the best performance that night.

  3. @Tyler: Unfortunately we missed Smile Empty Soul, but we heard we missed something really great!
