Seether at the Fillmore Auditorium, 10/13/12 (photos and review)

Not every rock show needs a mosh pit. Some of the most fulfilling concerts are the mid-tempo ones that allow fans to sit back and enjoy a performance without being disrupted by uninhibited chaos and people running into each other.

Saturday night’s “Triple Threat Tour” with Seether, Sick Puppies, Kyng and opening act Eye Empire had the potential to get the Fillmore stirring, but despite requests from the bands to amp up the energy, the crowd remained relatively mellow throughout the evening.

Starting with newcomers Eye Empire, every set was filled with hook-ready rock songs and swaying ballads that engaged the crowd. Kyng and Sick Puppies were fitting openers, not solely because they are both three-pieces, but because they offered a consistent mix of modern and hard rock styles to match Seether’s range.

Equipped with a few strobe lights and their own chandeliers (as if the Fillmore didn’t have enough), the guys from Seether kept everything simple. The set opened with “No Jesus Christ” and continued to pump out every familiar track from the band’s catalog. An hour into the set, the crowd finally showed signs of life, jumping and fist-pumping along with the ultra-hook-y “Tonight” and the slight country vibe of “Country Song.”

Seether ended its 70-minute set in predictable fashion, closing the show with “Fake It” and an extended version of “Remedy.”
