P.O.D. @ Petco Park – 06/12/2015
San Diego natives P.O.D. (Payable on Death) performed a surprise show at Petco Park on Friday June 12th as part of the San Diego Padres “Party in The Park” concert series. Scheduled before Friday home games the series brings a diverse array of food, drinks, and musical talent for Padres fans to enjoy. P.O.D. who is releasing a new album The Awakening in August of 2015 notified excited fans just a few days before the concert through social media. That didn’t stop hundreds of eager Padres fans from packing the area behind the outfield at Petco Park to rock out with their local heroes before the Friday night game. Opening before the ballgame which featured Southern California rivals the LA Dodgers, several members of the band proclaimed their love for both teams, before starting a loud chant for a Padres win. The band played through a short but sweet set featuring tons of hits like “Boom”, “Alive,” and even debuted a new song “This Goes Out To You” to rave reviews from the hometown crowd. Lead singer Sonny Sandoval was invited to throw out the opening pitch for the game following his energetic performance.
