Metalville - Online Review Quotes
"While the Down ‘N’ Outs are musically spot on, poor old Joe is suffering very bad from a chest and throat infection and you can totally tell from the dry, hoarse, worn harshness of his voice that he is struggling badly and lucky to have any sound at all coming from those legendary iconic larynx of his. He even had to blow his nose on-stage and I dread to think what sort of pain he was in when he was hitting some of those high notes since some of these numbers aren’t the easiest to tackle at the best of times."
"I was really impressed with the fact that the set opened with two of my favourite Elton John classics ‘Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding’ that I never would have expected from the band - not to mention Joe Elliot sat at the piano since I had no idea he could play one. It was a real turn up for the books. From here on it was a collection of Ian Hunter material, a lot of which was rather obscure for those who aren’t hardcore fans to be honest with you."
