Getting the Chance to Open for Dragonforce

I think for me the moment that really changed everything was when my former band Metadox opened for Dragonforce at The Chance Theater in Poughkeepsie, NY. It wasn't just that we had opened for them, we were on the tickets.

We were the first of only three bands to play that night. This alone was something I never expected. Once we got on stage and looked into an audience of 1,200, it was honestly every dream coming true. That moment solidified everything I had done up to then. I can't explain exactly how I felt, but it was like being home

Great Story!
I think this one is a winner!
