Union Hall in the heart of Edmonton, AB was in for a shit kicking of heart thumping metalcore bands on Thursday, November 5th, 2015 as Parkway Drive’s IRE Album Tour came through the small venue. It was an almost sold out show, as the band’s last visit to Edmonton was in 2010 at the Van’s Warped Tour. Despite a great line-up of bands, and great performances. The concert was overshadowed by a brutal sound system that desperately needs to be upgraded, especially if the venue plans to host bands of this calibre again.
