HALESTORM recently toured the UK supporting label mates SHINEDOWN and the shows were killer! Some fan shot footage from the gigs has been popping up online and you can check out some of those videos below:
There are also some awesome reviews online, which you can see below:
A third of the way through the set the stage clears except for Lzzy Hale and after trying to calm the excited crowd to a silence she begins a vocal only rendition of ‘Crazy On You’ (originally by Heart), leading into ‘Familiar Taste of Poison’ for which the band re-joined her. The magnitude of this band is a true inspiration but nothing could prepare us for what happened next, Arejay Hale – drummer preformed an awe inspiring solo. At first with drumsticks then with whatever he had to hand and finally using only his hands. This was so powerful the entire audience was just stood silently watching in pure amazement and when he finished everybody broke into a roar that shook the ceiling, with everyone back on the stage they ended with their massive hit song ‘I Get Off’. Halestorm seemed to hit every note with military precision and we can’t wait to see them again!
The music is pure hard rock and the sight of a gorgeous front woman in hold ups strapped to a guitar that can play the damn thing is a sight to behold. ‘I Get Off’, ‘Freak Like Me’ and a cover of Skid Row’s ‘Slave To the Grind’ were all delivered with true conviction. Going down a storm (no pun intended), they certainly made many new fans and on this performance have a bright future.

Let’s be honest – Lzzy Hale would be worth watching even if she never uttered a word. Yet here is a frontwoman boasting substance as well as style and when she sang alone, mid set, it was simply mindblowing.
