As the house lights go down for openers Starset, 2 lit up screens on each side of the stage illuminate the room while a deep rumbling bass tone fills the O2 Forum for a lengthy duration, causing the onlookers to give up chanting their name while eagerly awaiting any sign of life on stage. Now I'm beginning to understand the glass wall surrounding the drum kit to hold back any impatient fans who are willing to throw something.

5 minutes later we finally have activity on stage who look like they are searching for signs of life as the drummer, guitarist and bassist wear fully kitted space suits, credit where credit is due this is a unique experience to see the suits light up in synchronization to the blend of atmospheric and ambient sounds lined into the alternative rock genre, while the mesmerizing space-cinematic clips are playing on the screens. A great reception from the audience towards the solid set from Starset who have proven themselves a great pick for a support act. As they exit the stage Breaking Benjamin fans gear themselves up for the main course, edging their way closer to the stage in this sold out show.
