There’s nothing like returning to a city after a two-year hiatus. Last November we rolled back into Newcastle to perform at the O2 Academy. This time we opened the doors early for the first fifty avid fans to join us for an acoustic performance called Daisyland. This was just the prelude to a massive night.
Opening the main show were Tygers of Pan Tang who warmed up the capacity crowd before Corabi took to the stage to lead the charge on a two-hour long power packed set with an onslaught of tracks from our previous and current albums along with a few classics from Deep Purple, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.
Deen has the perfect name to play this city. ‘Deeno, Deeno’ was shouted out in unison as they loved his vocal on ‘Maggie May’. The other famous Deano that hails from Newcastle is of course Brian ‘Deano’ Johnson of AC/DC fame.
Rush On Rock were there to take in the show and here is their glowing review:
“The Dead Daisies are anything but the stereotypical super group. They personify the work ethic of rock and roll, the comradery of a band and the passion of real rockers.” – Adam Keys (Rush On Rock)
