I haven’t been as excited about an acoustic show since Kiss did MTV Unplugged in 1995.  Hinder announced they were hitting the road for a few dates to preview their new disc, ‘Welcome To The Freakshow.’  To do this, they were stripping down all of their hits and favorites and bringing them to the masses acoustically.  I knew I had to be in Detroit for this show.

They did not disappoint the crowd as they brought out the classics and presented them in a familiar way, but with the slight twist of being unplugged.  Austin and the rest of the boys were all smiles, but all business as they hit the stage and tore through show openers “Use Me” and “Homecoming Queen.”  They were just getting started.  They peppered the set with tracks form their first three discs, but also threw in six new tracks, including “Get Me Away From You,” “Is It Just Me,” and first single, “Save Me.”  They closed with two strong songs, “Bad Motherfucker” and “Get Stoned.”  What a way to say goodnight to this enthused and spent Detroit audience.

The set list was sure to please everyone in the crowd.  On the way out, not once did I hear anything that resembled, “They didn’t play…”  Well done Hinder.  You brought your A Game to Detroit and it paid off in spades.  If this show was ANY indication, the full blown, full electric tour to promote the disc will be a resounding success.

Set List: Use Me – Homecoming Queen – Watcha Gonna Do – Get Me Away From You – Is It Just Me – Better Than Me – How Long – Should Have Known Better – Lips Of An Angel – All American Nightmare – See You In Hell – Without You – Save Me – Talk To Me – Bad Mother Fucker – Get Stoned

Openers Aranda were also out promoting a new disc, their first on Wind-Up Records, ‘Stop The World.’  The trio took to the stage and set the night off on the right foot as they played several fan favorites and even threw in a cover track.  The guys played well together, and seemed to be enjoying themselves.  You could tell they were in their comfort zone playing their songs unplugged.  They impressed me enough that I walked back to the merch table and bought their latest disc before leaving the venue.!i=2218733807&k=HzWNb6b
