It is certainly hard to believe that the 2023 MMRBQ is already a week+ in the rearview mirror, but the energy and the vibe that came out of this year’s event continues on.
This year’s all-day festival was just the third time in over 16 years of MMRBQ’s that we held our massive MMR Concert Event at the end of the summer rather than in the middle of May. Mother Nature was smiling down on us in beautiful, tropical, downtown Camden, New Jersey, as she delivered some of the most amazing weather and temperatures that we have had all summer.
Thank you to everyone who joined us in person at the show or listened on-air or online to our complete concert coverage. All of us at WMMR truly appreciate your friendship!
Shinedown at MMRBQ
“My Boys” in Shinedown headlined the MMR*B*Q for the second time this year, bringing their Planet Zero World Tour to the Freedom Mortgage Pavilion. And as Brent Smith told us leading up to the MMRBQ, Shinedown brought ALL of their “bells & whistles,” the songs, the screens and certainly a LOT of pyro!
You could tell Brent, Zach, Eric & Barry were certainly feeling the love from the WMMR audience. Their energy was reflective of that during their performance. Brent had some very kind words for the station multiple times over the course of the night. After all, WMMR is one of the very first stations in the entire world to play Shinedown on the radio, and the band hasn’t forgotten that.
Having personally seen Shinedown dozens and dozens of times all over the country, I can truly say that this year’s MMR*B*Q performance from “My Boys” was among the very BEST that I have ever seen them. And if you haven’t seen the full videos of “A Symptom of Being Human” and “Cut the Cord” from this year’s MMR*B*Q, you can view them here.
I had a chance to catch Shinedown on their “The Revolutions Live” tour with Papa Roach and Spiritbox at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ on Sunday, so even more pictures and video from Shinedown (and Papa Roach & Spiritbox) will be posted right here in the coming days!
Thank YOU again for such a great MMRBQ this year! Let’s do it again soon!!
