The second club gig in Germany was part of the Free & Easy Festival in Munich and is set in a huge venue named Backstage with various gigs, clubs and
bar among the building which people can wander in and out of depending on the events or drinks that attract their senses. The sound of The Dead Daisies bursting out of their venue helped in attracting the majority of festival goers in to make some noise.
For the band, it was business as usual as they kicked straight into ‘Midnight Moses‘. The set is starting to take on a structure with certain numbers like classics ‚All Right Now’ and ‘Helter Skelter’, new songs like ‘Make Some Noise’ and ‘Long Way to Go’, and Daisies standards ‘Lock N’ Load’ and ‘With You and I’ making up the foundation while a variation of new songs and standards are tried out. Tonight saw the return of ‘Mexico’ into the set due to popular demand. The German club shows are intimate and hot with many familiar faces in the crowd. The atmosphere created in these shows are almost party like with everyone singing along to all the songs.
The band are having a blast in these shows too, with the twin guitars of David Lowy and Doug Aldrich matched with Cheshire cat grins as the natural double act of John Corabi and Marco Mendoza continually connected with the crowd and encouraging as much participation as possible. Meanwhile Brian Tichy bashed away at his drums during his solo with bare fists, punching in the air and conducting cheers from the gathered Dead Daisies fans, old, new, young and old.
Also in the crowd tonight was a potential guitar maestro of the future in the shape of Ryder Aldrich who was there to watch dad Doug do his thing with The Dead Daisies.
Another great night with another great crowd, and once again, The Dead Daisies live machine had successfully left its mark on another city. Munich Dead Daisies fans, you were awesome, and we can’t wait to see you again soon!
