Coheed and Cambria please fans with “Good Apollo” throwbacks at Oakland show

Coheed and Cambria kicked off their Neverender GAIBSIV tour this week with a stop at Oakland’s Fox Theater. This tour has been exceptionally popular among hardcore Coheed fans due to the fact that the band has decided to bring back their popular album, “Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV” and play it in its entirety.

The shows production was big, but clean and simple. Through out the show, a video wall triptych displayed visuals that went along to every song and lights that lined just about everything on the stage.

Their set started off with a visual intro of the albums cover art as the albums opening song “Keeping the Blade” played. As soon as frontman, Claudio Sanchez stepped onto the stage, solo with his acoustic guitar, the fans started going crazy. Once the rest of the band joined him on stage to play “Welcome Home”, crowd surfers quickly started making their way up to the front of the barricades.

Through out the entire show, fans were jumping around and singing along at the top of their lungs to all the songs. And of course everyone lost it (including myself) when they finally played their hit, “The Suffering”. This has to be one of, if not the most, energetic show I’ve been to in a while.
