THE DARKNESS AND THE BLACKFOOT GYPSIES LIVE AT LEEDS FIRST DIRECT ARENA 27.11.17

THE BLACKFOOT GYPSIES

An absolutely brilliant band these were! From Tennessee(yes the home of Jack Daniel’s). I’d never heard of them but they were full of energy onstage! Especially the singer. Had a Steven Tyler type thing going on. You also don’t get many bands wearing the bright 70’s, 80’s glam rock style clothing anymore sadly but these guys pulled it off brilliantly! If you like country, blues type music with a bit of glam rock then check these guys out.

The Harmonica player does an amazing bird tweeting solo with his mouth! He also looks just like Danny Glover!

THE DARKNESS

Recently I saw a Queen Documentary and was surprised at first but then I thought about it and it made sense in a way. The Darkness have been labelled as “The modern day Queen.” Now I know their not anywhere near as “legendary” as Queen although they are still big in their own right but now they have Rufus Taylor(Roger Taylor’s son) on drums that’s given the statement a bit of clarification in a way. Sort of like an approval.

An electrifying, heavy flamboyant performance I must say. An extremely lively crowd( got banged about loads). Not a single hit was missed, of course. “One way ticket to hell”, “Barbarian” and the rest finishing with “I believe in a thing called love.”

Met these guys before the show. Really great guys! Justin in particularly loved my Resident Evil hoodie( even if he didn’t know what Resident Evil was.”

SUMMARY

Two great lively bands! Was a night of glam from start to finish! One of the jumpiest crowds I’ve EVER been in. PERIOD! But will go see them again and again.
