Somehow Blaze the Madman Bayley is already part of this concert hall, like the Z7 crew, the taps, the malt whisky and all that. And like every year, or almost every year, Blaze is back in Pratteln to the delight of all fans. The evening is opened by the Swiss band Aziz, but unfortunately I miss most of their show.
Mainpain from bella Italia that is not only the origin of delicious pasta and pizza or the world´s best motor cyclist, but also great Rock/Metal: Dave (Guitar), Paolo (Guitar), Marcello (Bass), Antonello (Drums) and Vocalist Ronnie prove to be among the latter. They focus on material from their new 2007 album „Food For Thoughts“. Good music, good interpretation and just right to stir up the crowd.
Blaze Bayley Again and again I am astonished about this hyperactive guy, he´s so full of energy and power. And it doesn´t matter how many – or few – people are there, he achieves the impossible and inspires them from the very start, rocking like hell. Hands are in the air, the sign of evil, applause and many heads are banged. And when they are not willing to join, Blaze puts on his bad boy look – and then hell breaks loose. Some fans even start stage diving and don´t stop although the security takes rough measures. In my opinion this is no fun any more, because all those divers wear big heavy boots… a good example how some people might react to such great music. Blaze is simply great, just like his band. Although the line-up is constantly changing, he always finds excellent people. A great gig, and we are already looking forward to the next one.
