Got there around 7:45 p.m. and watched the support acts. King Cannons were the first support act and weren’t too bad. But the second support act was torture!! They were a band called Hunting Grounds and looked like a bunch of teenagers who just had music really loud but no substance. I sat through that with my fingers in my ears and I wasn’t the only one. A few people walked out (including R) and returned only after they were done to watch The Living End. I also realised I am getting old. How? All I wanted to do was give those youngsters a pair of scissors to cut their hair! It really irked me!
Around 9:30, The Living End hit the stage and they rocked the house for 90 minutes! They played about 7 songs from their new album and several of the old favourites. All I can say is that they are brilliant musicians! Chris Cheney is amazing with the guitar and Scott Owen is exceptional on the double bass. Hell, I’ve never even seen anyone play double bass, let alone at a rock concert. I cannot stress just how brilliant their musicianship is. The guitar is wicked as are the drums…and of course, I absolutely love their lyrics! The only gripe I had was that they didn’t play ‘Moment in the sun‘ which is one of my favourite songs. Not being able to hear after the concert was a testament to how good they were!
I am going to leave you with some pictures:
I had videos too but unable to embed them.
All in all, a rockin’ weekend!
So how’s your weekend been?
Until next time,
