Uber Rock - Concert Review Quotes

"With ‘Love Bites’ next, then arguably their biggest song in ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me’ after that which almost has the crowd drowning out the impressive sound system in the arena (and that was potentially just me!), we then get a sombre moment as we get a two minute tribute to fallen brother Stephen Maynard Clark, who had been their principal songwriter until his death in. With this over, it was back on to the celebration of the album, as ‘Armageddon It’, ‘Gods of War’, ‘Don't Shoot Shotgun’ and ‘Run Riot’ are all played emphatically by the band, who have sounded incredible all evening."

"There are three unplayed songs on the album yet to come and next is the title track, ‘Hysteria’, itself, which goes down, as expected, incredibly well with the crowd, with a short 12 bar addition of David Bowie's ‘Heroes’ just prior to the end of the track. ‘Excitable’ and ‘Love And Affection’ close off the album part of the set, earning the band another short break, before they come back on stage. The next track was a bit of a surprise, being a tour debut, as ‘Promises’ rings out across the crowd, before we get another four of their better-known tracks to finish, in ‘When Love and Hate Collide’, ‘Let's Get Rocked’, ‘Rock of Ages’ and set closing ‘Photograph’, which all gain loud sing-alongs and help create a remarkable end of set atmosphere."
