"Welcome Back New Jersey!" Sully Erna and Godsmack brought their "Best of Times World Tour" back to Camden for the last night of their 2023 tour.

Sully and the boys of Godsmack made good on their promise to bring their “Best of Times World Tour” back to Camden, NJ and the Freedom Mortgage Pavilion after Mother Nature and a severe storm had other plans earlier this summer. This time around they brought their Boston-area brothers in Extreme along with them.

Extreme is touring in support of their brand-new album SIX that was released back in June. They had been on the road most of the summer with Living Colour on their “Thicker Than Blood 2023 Tour”. They had so much fun on the tour, that they added another leg of it set to kick-off in 2024, with a stop at the Tropicana Casino in Atlantic City on Saturday January 27th.

Godsmack is touring in support of their 8th, and possibly final, studio album Lighting Up the Sky, released earlier this year via BMG. And though this show was the last night of Godsmack’s 2023 tour, Sully mentioned from the stage that the band would be back on the road as early as February of 2024 with a whole new show and tour.

Highlight of the night, and quite possibly the whole tour, was Godsmack and Extreme teaming up for a blazing rendition of AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell”, which you can view here.
