VOLBEAT @ House of Blues, Anaheim (08/27/10)

Denmark’s VOLBEAT rolled into Downtown Disney in Anaheim for their first headlining tour of the U.S. While the turn out for their first Southern California show earlier this year in support of METALLICA at the Troubador was pretty good, tonight’s turnout was absolutely incredible. The House of Blues was packed with only the most dedicated VOLBEAT fans. The crowd were chanting the band’s name as MOTORHEAD was played over the house speakers. As soon as VOLBEAT took the stage, the crowd went totally apeshit. There were drunken smiles, cheering, singing, and dancing that created a fun party atmosphere. The band played very well and played their hearts out as they constantly interacted with the audience. Frontman Michael Poulsen took a time out to give a shout out to the legendary Ronnie James Dio. The setlist was focused on the band’s last two albums along with “Fallen” off of their upcoming album and a few from the first album. It was clear from the show that VOLBEAT are on the cusp of breaking bigger in the U.S.
