Halestorm Rocked Koko on the 18th August. ( with a bit of Blues and Country as well thrown into the mix…) ‘A Wild Evening with Halestorm’ sold out within about 8 hours of general release when tickets were first put up for sale several months ago for the London show.

It was a slowed down acoustic performance which also allowed the audience to fully participate in, by proving to the band that they knew every word to the songs. However it nearly all went a bit wrong when something was said which sparked Jo on guitar to go a bit Country on us , but Lzzy quickly put him in check with a firm ‘No I’m not doing country’ and things got back to the way they were supposed to be…( phew…close call that one…)
Halestorm are a band that certainly polarise opinions amongst rock fans.Since they started in 2009 they have chosen a path of commercial easy on the ears music.
