The band touched down in Stockholm the day before the gig to continue their Scandinavian adventure and took some time off before planning for a busy day of promotional work with local radio and music press like the ‘Sweden Rock’ magazine.
Stockholm is the perfect balance of culture, history and modern living, like The Dead Daisies perfect balance of melody, hooks and power chords within their music. When the two meet you know its going to be great.
When time came for the band to take to the stage at the Hovet in front of 5000 people, you could feel the electric atmosphere as the they came out to their Sabbath-Zeppelin mix. The rift to ‘Midnight Moses’ crunched its way through the speakers as Richard Fortus and David Lowy swung in to action with Marco Mendoza taking the band into first single from ‘Revolución’ ‘Mexico’. John Corabi led the band throughout like he does every night, he lives for the stage and the crowd know it and respond to him. The usual mix of Daisies numbers and classics like ‘Helter Skelter’ enthralled the Swedish audience, and its a great feeling to have thousands from a Viking nation cheering and supporting you. Once again, the band achieved their goal of winning over more new fans and now its time for the final leg of the Scandinavian visit as the band headed for Denmark.
