I was super impressed by last nights show. Chris Holmes and his band set the stage on fire with their raw energy and take no prisoners attitude.

Case and point no backing tracks at all, no clicks, this was heavy metal the way it should be played . What you saw on stage was a well rehearsed band playing the classic W.A.S.P. songs along with Holmes’ big songs from his solo albums and a few covers.

This band did not need to magically dial in vocals or back vocals and sound effects out of thin air, they proved that bands today can still get up on stage and perform live even at 65 (it was Chris 65th' birthday the other night).

I was really blown away by how well the W.A.S.P songs were performed and especially impressed on how Chris ‘ solo material hit the mark live. His songs were refreshing, raw, melodic, punchy and had a bit of humour. Born, Work, Die.

Chris’ international band consists of Canada’s Chuck Lambert on bass and vocals, France’s Florian Lagoutte on guitar and UK drummer Stephen Jackson.

The packed super charged fans at the Boston Music Room dug every minute of last nights performance.

Do yourself a favour and check out the MEAN MAN Chris Holmes live in a town near you.
