The Dead Daisies ripped the roof and shook the foundations of The Governor Hindmarsh in Adelaide last night on the first show of their Australian tour.
Following the excitement surrounding the band’s arrival in Australia, The Dead Daisies took the stage last night with support act King Of The North and gave South Australian fans one hell of a rock n’ roll show.
It was loud, it was hot and it was packed!
Some quotes from fans at The Gov taken from The Dead Daisies Facebook page:

Comments from the Fan Club:
The Dead Daisies made me feel welcome and were interested in my thoughts of the show. They were pumped because they nailed it with their first gig! – David Kerr
Comments from industry and media:
“Everyone in the room had smiles on their faces and were having the best time. The Dead Daisies play rock just how it should be played, Loud N Proud, tight and sweaty with a fantastic set of songs. The players were outstanding and proved to me once again that Rock still has its place in a big way here in Oz. Jon Stevens is just brilliant! He does what he does with class and style. King Of The North was a great choice opener.” Craig Csongrady (BB Steal)
