Cherry Bombs at Santander Arena

With Slipknot set to headline several massive music festivals this summer — to include Welcome to Rockville, Inkcarceration Festival, Rock Fest and Download Festival — frontman Corey Taylor embarked on a brief five-stop tour as a tune-up for his soon-to-be hectic summer. The first stop of this abbreviated road trip was Santander Arena in Reading, Pennsylvania, where we had the pleasure of seeing Taylor, along with stunt/dance troupe Cherry Bombs, starring his wife, Alicia.

The Cherry Bombs have carved out a fascinating home for themselves somewhere between macabre and cabaret, with a show fittingly titled, “Macabaret.” They are a hard rock dance troupe that utilizes fire, aerials and various other daredevil arts to captivate audiences to such hits as:

“Highway 666” by Corey Taylor
“Cold Heart Bitch” by Jet
“More Human Than Human” by White Zombie
“Renegades of Funk” by Rage Against The Machine
“Du Hast” by Rammstein
“Wherever I May Roam” by Metallica

One moment these amazingly-talent ladies are performing fast-paced dance choreography. The next they’re dangling from the venue’s ceiling. With such an enjoyable playlist and eye-catching visuals, the show is unlike anything else in the genre of music. The entire performance is an absolute credit to Alicia and the rest of her supremely talented “girl gang.”
