Anyway, that's enough of a backstory, let's get to talking about this killer concert. Opening the show was Dorothy. This was my first even hearing about this LA based band. But, damn are they ever good. They play great blues based hard rock. Their signer Dorothy Martin has such a beautiful and soulful voice. She is quite the performer, too, as she has a great stage presence and is naturally sexy and gorgeous. I became a fan of theirs from that very instant!
At one point, they played the Runaways classic "Cherry Bomb". She was joined by Dorothy Martin and Lzzy f'n Hale of Halestorm!! That was just fucking awesome! I think nearly lost my shit, at this point!
much just flipped the fuck out! We all fucking did! This was beyond AMAZING!! I don't think I have the words to describe the awesomeness here! Below is a little tease. This originally was shot for my Instagram, hence, why it is only 15 seconds long.
And, then it was time for Halestorm!!!! I tried to get as close as I could to the stage, but the place was packed as fuck. Anyway, Lzzy, finally came on, looking as beautiful as ever. She did a solo song, "God Bless the Beast" on keyboard. It was an amazing opener, that showed off Lzzy's beautiful voice.fire during their whole performance. They, without a shadow of a doubt in my mind, proved to be one of greatest live bands, anywhere. They sounded tight and their talent just poured out.
They played lots of songs from their latest amazing album, Into the Wild Life, like "Apocalyptic", "I am the Fire, "Scream" (probably my favorite track from there), and more, as well as lots of tracks from The Strange Case of... (my favorite album of theirs, thus far, and that is saying A LOT as I LOVE all three of their studio albums), including ""Love Bites (So Do I), "Rock Show", and more. They only played one off their debut self-titled album, and it was "I Get Off".
tale of how her family supported her and her brother drummer Arejay (more on him later!). She also talked about coming back to NYC and how it was long overdue. Finally, she said she would play the next song, the beautiful ballad "Dear Daughter" for all the ladies in the audience. It should be noted that this point she had mentioned that this was her first time touring with all female fronted bands. She also gave props to Lita Ford for opening the doors for bands like hers.
Getting back to Arejay, he is a monster drummer. He played an amazing drummer solo, later joined by the drummers of the two preceding bands, Bobby Rock and Zac Morris of Lita Ford and Dorothy, respectively.
leaving, wasting time, and coming back. We liked the idea, and they went with it. So next, Dorothy Martin returned and sang a powerful duet cover of "I Just Want to Make Love to You" by Willie Dixon. After, that the band went into the two final songs of the night: "Here's to Us" and "I Miss the Misery". This ended an amazing night of music and a perfect performance. It proved that Halestorm does indeed rule, and that the gorgeous and supremely talented Lzzy Hale is a goddess! All hail Halestorm!!
