After a burning hot opening night headline show in Dublin, the band travelled north to the biggest rock centre in Ireland, Belfast. The city that gave us among others Gary Moore and Vivian Campbell love their rock music.
First on the list of priorities was a visit to BBC Ulster for an interview and a short set of acoustic numbers to hit the local airwaves before the show.
The Dead Daisies hit the stage earlier than usual this evening but with no less power as ‘Midnight Moses’ thundered out of the speakers and ignited the Limelight audience.
With a strong representation of the forthcoming album ‘Make Some Noise’ on show with eight out of the twelve tracks being aired, the reception was very favorable from the packed out venue. If first single ‘Long Way To Go’ had the crowds engine started, then the pulsating beat of title track ‘Make Some Noise’ had them flying with fists in the air and stretching their own vocal chords to emulate those of John Corabi.
With a mix of standard rock classics and the bands own classics like ‘Angel in your Eyes’ and ‘Lock n’ Load, the band delivered a strong message to the music fans of Belfast. Tonight saw some of the loudest, craziest fans yet who fell head over heels for The Dead Daisies and no doubt will double in size by the time the band arrive back on their next tour.
Another warm night in Ireland with a near sell out capacity cooked up the atmosphere to bring a superb night to a pleasurable climax with the Deep Purple classic ‘Hush’.
And then it did go hush until the next gig!
