Having grinned my way through Shanghai Treason and thoroughly enjoyed the ever-reliable Gin Annie and Bad Touch, all that remained was for the Queen of Metal, Doro Pesch to arrive and preside over the strong audience of rockers.
Initially we were a one day festival and the three day format was as a response to our 2020 postponement due to the pandemic in order to give our fans something extra for their incredible loyalty. However, we have decided to continue as a three day festival!
This is a mere taster only of what these bands have to offer and I would implore listeners to check out the albums in their entirety, some have several releases already under their belts, all fantastic and absolutely deserving of a place in any decent record collection.
Frontman Robin Zander, dressed head to foot in what looked like a white air force uniform with the stars and stripes tucked into his side, looked and sounded like the epitome of an American rock star.
If only all tours could be like this, music for the fans played by fans of the music. We can but hope!
There’s a spotlight on Bad Touch right now and we managed to catch them right under it for just a moment.
We can’t wait to go on our first headline tour which is really brown trouser time. Like you’ve mentioned on earlier, we’ve gone out and supported a lot of people. So I’m really excited to them..we’ve got Mollie Marriott coming with us, she’s an amazing talent in her own, right.
it contains a meaningful showcase of the sound that Bad Touch are going for however there is untapped potential here
‘Bad Touch’ are here with a brand new original material debut album entitled ‘Half Way Home’. Forming five years ago this young Rock band have had many live experiences playing huge festivals such as Download, Steelhouse, legends of Rock and 2012’s Hard Rock hell. In this short period of time the band has achieved all of this as well as now supporting Rock Band ‘The Answer’ on their UK tour 2015. Now getting ready to release their debut album late April this year, I have been fortunate enough to get my hands on it early.
