When Kerrang announced the 2012 line up I was pretty stoked. Northern metal mob While She Sleeps, LA hardcore group Letlive, the Kings of pop punk New Found Glory and rowdy Welsh mob The Blackout (who replaced Sum 41) make up an incredibly varied line up and catered to the different tastes of the magazine’s demanding fan base.
This is my first ever not Metal/Hardcore show. Pretty exciting stuff. Before I start I should mention that this is not The Skrillex Cell Grey Daze Tour, It’s the Skrillex Grey Daze Tour. Me, not knowing anything about this kind of music and culture as I’m fairly new to it all, assumed that the “Cell” must be a dub step word for support, like an entourage or posse, that’s not the case.
The Cell is a motion sensing computer which picks up Skrillex’s dancing and movement and projects it onto a screen. Due to stage size limitations the Cell couldn’t fit on so it’s just Skrillex.
