Along with direct support, In Flames and opening act, Smash Into Pieces. Both bands hailing from Sweden. The venue was packed with fans from Chicago and fans from out of state.
Smash Into Pieces opened up the show and immediately pumped the crowd. Lead singer Chris managed to crowd surf towards the end of their set.
