UnBlackened: Black Label Society at the Grove of Anaheim

 

IMG_8434

IMG_8469

IMG_8450

 

The Grove of Anaheim was the last stop on the “UnBlackened” tour by the almighty Black Label Society, fronted by the ultimate shredder Zakk Wylde. I was lucky enough to catch Zakk play a tribute song to Dime Bag Darrell at last year’s Golden God Awards, but hearing the whole band play an acoustic set is a whole other experience.

I am so glad they decided to make their one night only concert at Club Nokia Live DVD and CD in Los Angeles, a US tour. With their album “Catacombs of the Black Vatican” that was released last April, they added a new member to the family. Dario Lorina formally of Lizzy Bordan, is the new axe-slinger for BLS replacing long time guitarist Nick Catanese. When Zakk introduced each of the band members, he said that Dario not only kills it on the guitar, but he also makes a tasty chicken piccata! Still in the band is brother John (JD) DeServio on bass and Jeff Fabb on drums.

I arrived to the ceremony right in time for the black curtain to drop. A space was saved for me in the front of the barricade so I could see the whole show for the next two hours. The band opened with Losin’ Your Mind and the crowd did just that! The set list consisted of songs from Zakk’s solo album Book of Shadows and Southern rock band Pride & Glory. Acoustic shows are so much more intimate with the audience because you can actually hear the melodies of the songs and the emotions of the band.

Zakk always gives it his all but I felt he really put in the energy for the last show of the tour. Throughout the set he threw in long guitar solos while he and Dario kept switching back and forth from the piano to the guitar. Both piano driven tunes “In This River” and “Angel of Mercy” were two of my favorite highlights of the night. I would catch Zakk looking over at Dario with eyes of respect because Dario was holding it down on both the keys and the strings! Zakk pulled some of his famous moves and played the guitar behind his head a few times and with his teeth! Zakk pulled out the double neck Les Paul signature “bullseye” guitar and gave a truly epic performance and somewhere in the middle of the set he played a tribute to Dime Bag Darrel who as a really close friend of Zakk’s. The crowd held up their cell phones like lighters and sang along. It was a beautiful and touching moment and I really liked that he took the time to give his respect to not only his friend, but a talented musician that was taken away from us way too soon in life.

The set went by way too fast and before you knew it, the show was over. Zakk took the time to thank his fans and throw some memorabilia out into the crowd. I was up front and I saw Zakk wipe his face with a black towel and then he threw it right at me! I caught it and of course I kept it. Weird, I know, but hey it was a pretty cool moment. I must have been in the perfect spot because I also caught his guitar pic, what an epic night indeed!

Def Leppard – “Viva Hysteria”

Def Leppard established a residency at The Joint in Las Vegas from March 22nd to April 13th. After hearing about the first couple shows and seeing the set lists, I decided to head to Vegas and check it out for myself!

I hit the road on Saturday, March 30th, and excitement grew as I drove closer and closer to Vegas and saw billboard after billboard advertising the show. During their residency, called “Viva Hysteria.” Def Leppard plays two sets a night. The first set is a surprise, and it changes every night. However, during the second set, they are playing their fourth studio album, “Hysteria,” in its entirety! The CD is the bands best selling CD to date, with over 20 million in sales, and seven hit singles.

Def Leppard is definitely a band that has bridged the generational gap. While waiting for them to take the stage, I looked around at the crowd and noticed that ages varied from at least seven to 70! The floor was packed, and both balconies were full with fans waiting with anticipation. The Joint holds 4000 people, and it looked like it was pretty much at capacity.

Seated, I listened to several rock songs play over the P.A. I have been to hundreds of concerts, and have never seen a band enter the stage the way Def Leppard did that night. As The Who’s song ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’ was playing, the curtains opened, the song stopped, and Def Leppard picked up right where the song had left off! This was a very cool surprise.
