Alter Bridge history was made tonight in Columbus, Ohio. With Myles still recovering from illness, Mark took the lead on "Burn it Down" and "Broken Wings" for the first time ever live. Check out the videos Jared captured here on Facebook:

Could this be what the ODR demos sounded like?

IMO, Burn it Down is this band's most underrated song. That sounded really fuckin cool. I wish they brought it out more.

Man I was just so pumped to see my two favorite bands on the same tour. Never dreamed of something like this happening lol. Felt bad for Myles being sick but that was a tremendous surprise.

They made the switch to help Myles’ voice, so some of the next few shows may get this too until Myles recovers fully.

:lol

I really do hope they make this a more regular occurrence. Not that I don't love Myles singing these songs; it's just cool to mix things up. Plus these were both basically Mark's songs so this is like getting a glimpse at the big bang – i.e., the moments the AB Universe was created.

Mark's singing aside, it's also just so great to see them bringing BID out of the vault. I've so missed hearing this one live. I hope they keep it in the rotation.

He did Burn It Down last night in GR again and hit more of the high notes during the bridge and end of the song, it was IMMENSE!

If I find a video I will post it.

Here's one! As a side note, this is as good an opportunity as any to remind people to PLEASE HOLD YOUR PHONE SIDEWAYS WHEN RECORDING VIDEO.* :facepalm



Seems like he's already stepped up his vocal game from the previous performance. Practice makes perfect I suppose! I wonder if it's just coincidence that he's only now started using IEMs. Those have got to be especially helpful now that he's singing relatively unfamiliar vocal parts.

*That said, I think the poster redeemed herself by knowing to pan over to Myles right after Mark finished his solo.

Glad to see they played it again! Love hearing Mark do this one and it's kinda cool seeing the different improvised solos.
