Eagles of Death Metal: Australia (Sydney), March 19, 2007
Live they use a harder distortion than their studio records, which if anything made the performance all the more effective.

Sound: The sound was great. From when they hit their very first note, you could tell this was going to be a great concert. Live they use a harder distortion than their studio records (which tend to have a more overdrive-based sound), which if anything made the performance all the more effective. Jesse Hughes (frontman) sounded excellent, and managed to hit all of this many falsetto notes perfectly. The musicianship was spot on, and I didn't hear a bum note anywhere. // 9

Perfomance: This concert was one of my favourites of all the ones I've been to (if not the favourite), because not only did they play their top-grade rock n roll perectly, they really interacted with the crowd, and showed what down-to-earth guys they really are (something of a rarity these days). Although Jesse did most of the speaking, the other band members still looked like they were having the time of their lives. I can't remember the set list too well, although they played all their biggest songs so there were no disappointments there. // 9

Overall Impression: The gig was on the 19th of March 2007 at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney. there were two acts opening, Who were The Watt Riot (I haven't heard of them, and I'm guessing they're a local band, and they sounded great) and The Answer, Who are an Irish rock act Who bore a great resemblance to Led Zeppelin, both physically and musically (also like Zeppelin, they played fantastically). Tickets were around $65, which was a bit pricey but was well worth it. American bands come to Australia pretty rarely, so it will be a while before the Eagles roll around here again. Considering how great this concert was, I can't wait for the next one. // 10
