The MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheater was set ablaze with an electrifying energy on August 5th, as two powerhouse bands, Disturbed and Breaking Benjamin, took the stage for the "Take Back Your Life Tour." The night was a thrilling rollercoaster of emotions, weaving raw intensity with moments of vulnerability and connection.

The evening kicked off with an unexpected twist as Breaking Benjamin's own Keith Wallen took the stage as the opening act. His solo performance showcased his virtuosity on the guitar and set the stage for what was to come.

Breaking Benjamin's performance was nothing short of electrifying. Their signature hard-hitting sound resonated throughout the amphitheater, enveloping the audience in a wave of emotion.
