Following a great performance by Amaranthe it was time for the headliners.
After hearing their warm-up a few hours earlier I could barely wait for Danko Jones to kick off . I was anticipating “Wild Woman”. I was blown away.
They absolutely rock. Having gone through my back catalogue of their albums from the early 2000s I found them quite punky, full of energy and ever so slightly reminiscent of Metallica in parts. Perhaps no surprise that they ventured into “Die, Die Darling” early on.
“Gonna be a Fight” and “Do You Wanna Rock” being the obvious standouts from the album as well as the opener. They also sprinkled many favourites into the show so no one was left disappointed.
They were scheduled to play a few more songs but they rant out of time. Or rather they were on stage late and didn’t get their full share.
Overall, terrific atmosphere and performance. Would go and see them again every day of the week.
