I really haven’t figured if it was planned or not, but support act Bite the Bullet went on stage pretty late. Perfect move (if it was planned that is) since a lot of people came early. I rarely witness a supporting act play in front of a nearly full venue, but that seemed to be the case here. They brought a lot of energy on stage, and most of the crowd had nodding heads. Especially that one middle-aged guy standing right in front of the scene, dancing in his very own way. I actually loved that guy, but more on him later! The band never really caught my interest, but it probably was the right support act.
When Baby Woodrose entered the stage, it was getting close to a sold out concert. The crowd included people from all sorts of age groups, and it really was a beautiful evening at Radar. The set list included music from the last 13 years, with hits and B-sides from their recently released compilation CD ‘Kicking Ass and Taking Names’. There’s really nothing negative to say on their performance. It was more or less what I’ve been missing for some time now!
Right, back to that one guy from the crowd, who started out as a man you could only love. He suddenly became just a bit to0 drunk and enthusiastic, and at one point he started waving around with one of the mic-stands and Lorenzo Woodrose told him to stop – but he didn’t. This resulted in technical problems, and Lorenzo went furious, and told him off – and the crowd loved it. From then the concert got even better!
It seems like Bobby McBride’s article on etiquette, from our online mag, really has its place!
A conclusion to the concert must be, that a Baby Woodrose concert is more than recommendable – it’s a must see!
