Amazing feedback is great as you never know, you work your arse off on all the songs and then you throw it in to the world and you hope that people appreciate it.
‘Shout’ is a thumping, call to action, epic of a track, which is sure to be a crowd pleaser when the guys tour later this year. Whilst ‘Shitstorm’ has that kind of intro that you know is going to build to a kick ass tune and it does not disappoint.
Encore comes at you with “No Sanctuary”, “Empire” and “Eyes of a Stranger” again if Tate had a little brother it would probably be Todd. But to be real here, I think Queensrÿche has managed to keep pushing forward in times of separation. We see it all the time when bands split, their famous vocalist leaves now what? You could call it quits, but to find a replacement, and start brewing your own ideas and just bring your sound more current is what was needed in the QR camp, I think most fans will agree with this.
It’s hard not to get yourself sucked in into their sound, as classic cuts like “Modern Day Cowboy” and “Lazy Days, Crazy Nights” are presented in the flesh
If you’re in London today (February 28th)… “Unbroken” will be re-recorded with members of a British military veterans’ choir and Prince Harry at the famed Abbey Road Studios.
Myles Kennedy looks like a sharp dressed man as he tears into “Wouldn’t You Rather” and “Isolation” with precision and rigor attention to detail. Tremonti the shredder himself is on point tonight as he makes things look easy live on stage. When we get to “Native Sons” you feel the vibe of that tune resonating through the band, and Tremonti just slays on this tune.
Webster Hall was the scene of a somewhat juxtaposed metal sounds this evening. From the straight-ahead raw style of Starkill to the melodic synth and composition based sounds of Epica, the night had a little something for everyone.
Over 50 years on, Ian Anderson and Jethro Tull continue perform some 70 to 100 shows each year around the world. Anderson’s energy and enthusiasm for his music still makes Jethro Tull concerts an experience to savour.
It’s a wonderful collection of anecdotal tracks that provide just enough grit to appease your classic rock fans and more than enough Americana to placate those that miss the sounds of the late great Tom Petty.
