Some of you may have forgotten already, but Rise Against played at RAMFest this year. I was one of the lucky few to photograph Rise Against at RAMFest 2013 Johannesburg just over a week ago.
Rise Against were phenomenal live. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an international act touch base that much with their fans. They made the crowd feel like they could have been in there living room having beer with them. Besides this, the set list was just pretty damn amazing.
Having the opportunity to photograph them while they were playing “The Good Left Undone” was bloody awesome. I was singing along to every single word. And lets not forget that they played songs like “Prayer of the Refugee”, acoustic versions of “Hero of War” and “Swing Life Away” and finished their set with “Saviour”. The set by Rise Against at RAMFest 2013 Johannesburg was something that will always have a special place in my music loving heart. The awesomeness is a close tie with the Smashing Pumpkins set that I saw in 2000.
I’m so glad that I could catch part of this experience on camera. Check out the photos that I took of Rise Against at RAMFest 2013 Johannesburg below.
