Breaking Benjamin is my favourite band of 90s. Breaking Benjamin had so many hits! The ones I remember are 'The Diary of Jane', 'Tourniquet' and their hit 'So Cold'. These are real songs, not fake ones like today! And it is awesome that they have a tour in 2019! So I'm going to visit their concert in 2019. The concert dates is here: [url=https://breakingbenjaminconcerts.com]https://breakingbenjaminconcerts.com[/url]. Open the page and maybe we can even visit one of the performances together!
