AC/DC’s Black Ice Tour is now over, but the memories should live on. The following footage is from the Columbus, Ohio stop on the Black Ice tour in 2008. Enjoy!!
Friday night Adler’s Appetite came to Cincinnati’s Riverstar Entertainment Complex to unleash their renditions of Guns N’ Roses awesome tunes. The band features former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler, Chip Z’nuff (Enuff Z’nuff) on bass, Rick Stitch (Ladyjack) on vocals, Michael Thomas (Faster Pussycat) and Alex Grossi (Quiet Riot) on guitar.
Local bands The Mighty Swine, and A Nervous Wreck opened the show. The Mighty Swine played a cool set of original tunes. A Nervous Wreck did a good job getting the crowd revved up with a bunch of cover tunes from the bands Poison, Ratt, L.A. Guns and more.
Adler’s Appetite hit the stage about 11:oo P.M. and played a great set of tunes covering the Guns N’ Roses albums, “Appetite for Destruction”, as well as the “Use Your Illusion” albums.
Rick Stitch may not be Axl Rose, but he did a good job signing these songs. I was pretty impressed with the guitar tandem of Alex Grossi and Michael Thomas as well. Adler’s Appetite may not be anything more than a glorified cover band, but at least Steven Adler is trying to keep the Guns N’ Roses music alive and well. Until Axl Rose gets his head out of his ass and reunites the class G N’ R linuep, this is as good as it gets!
Earlier this year, I saw Saving Abel, Seether and Nickelback live. My wife is a Nickelback fan, and I honestly thought I was taking one for the team by going to see this show. My wife goes to see quite a few bands that she doesn’t care for, so I definitely owe her a bunch.
I like Saving Abel and Seether well enough. In fact, I saw Seether just a few days prior to this show. This was my first time to see Nickelback live, and I must say, I was pretty surprised by their show. It was like an old school 80’s rock concert. This band often takes a bad rap, but I enjoyed their show, and wouldn’t hesitate to go see them again.
I was able to capture a few clips from the show, including Nickelback’s performance of the Filter song,”Hey Man Nice Shot” with Seethers, Shaun Morgan.
Enjoy the clips below!
I must admit that I am a big Jetboy fan, and I am dying to see these guys play again. It looks like the only way I will get to see them play is if I take a road trip and hit the M3 Festival at the end of May.
I am hoping that they play at Rock Gone Wild but that announcement has not been made yet.
Until then, I will have to settle for the clips below from their December 2007 show.
