A blizzard of historic proportions could not stop either the metal or fans from heating up St. Andrew’s Hall in Detroit on Superbowl Sunday.

Local social media was buzzing on Superbowl Sunday, but it was not entirely about football. For fans of August Burns Red and Miss May I, there was one burning question – is this show even going to happen? Detroit, much like the rest of the Midwestern United States, was getting pounded by a blizzard that brought 16 inches of snow, along with whiteout conditions. One poster on the August Burns Red Facebook page posed that very question, and the band replied with a resounding yes.

Both bands rewarded those whom braved the roads with their heavy style of aggressive vocals, catchy riffs, and melodies, which fans of both bands have come to expect. Kudos to them both for recognizing the risk in driving their fans endured, and thanked the crowd numerous times for toughing it out and coming out.

Our photographer, Josh Kahl, survived the blizzard and was on hand to capture the event.
