Rated 5 out of
Walking Dead Again
Having seen Saint Vitus on their previous visit to Glasgow my expectations were high.
Rather alarmingly before they took the stage Dave Chandler circulated the floor of Audio with the aid of crutches.
However ...when they hit the stage there was no sign of frailty from Vitus.
As good as the Wino fronted lineup was,this one with the legendary Scott Reagers back on the mic is the quintessential Vitus!
Opening with Dark World and peppering the setlist with classics like War Is Our Destiny, White Stallions, White Magic Black Magic and the monolithic Burial At Sea this was a fans dream. We even got a new song to be featured on the forthcoming 2018 album,
The crowd chanted "Scotty Reagers" to the singer's obvious delight and he certainly rose to the occasion.
The guitar as always had Dave's signature tone cutting a swathe through the steamy atmosphere of this intimate venue.
Come back and play to us again guys - this was awesome stuff!
A word of praise for Mos Generator as well - the perfect warm up act for the mighty Saint Vitus.
