Over 4,000 fans filled the Eagles Ballroom last night at The Rave in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for the opening night of the Half God Half Devil Tour featuring Gemini Syndrome, Avatar, Motionless In White, and In This Moment. With tickets sold out, it was clear that this was a highly anticipated concert featuring four bands that essentially could be headlining their own show.
By the time Gemini Syndrome took the stage to start off the night, the floor of the venue was already swarmed with fans waiting to see them. Starting the night off with two songs off of their first album release, they had the crowd in their hands from the beginning. The band was tight, high in energy, and sounding great. All making for a great performance.
Pleasure and Pain
Sorry Not Sorry
Remember We Die
Avatar with their amazing stage presence always put on a fantastic performance, one that you would never want to miss. Tonight was no exception. With the Avatar stage hands killing the lights, and singer Johannes Eckerström popping out of a what appeared to be a small circus ring the set was off to an amazing start. Playing all of their hit songs, Avatar sounded great and from the crowds reaction, they agreed. Fans were of all ages, some even dressed up with makeup similar to the bands.
Hail The Apocalypse
Paint Me Red
The Eagle has Landed
Let It Burn
Smells Like A Freak Show
Motionless In White had a lot to live up to with the last two amazing performances before them. Obviously, they didn’t disappoint. The entire crowd was head banging and throwing their fists in the air at one point. Crowd surfers were flying up towards the stage relentlessly throughout their performance. By the end of their set, the crowds excitement for the final band, In This Moment, was at an all time high.
Dead As Fuck

As stagehands were preparing for In This Moment to perform, a flag with the infamous black widow was raised to block view of the stage. By the time the show was about to start, the flag fell with the band posed perfectly. Starting out with a couple fan favorites, new music was debuted. In This Moment brought their A game tonight, and vocalist Maria Brink was at an all time best. It showed with the sold out venue roaring.
Last night was the first stop on the Half God Half Devil Tour, and the performance of all left us in awe. Don’t miss your chance to see all four of these great bands put on an incredible set.
