My Honest Review

What an awesome concert! Who would have thought that a guy the age of my father (just a personal measure) would have so much energy. 

Dave King dominated the stage not only with his songs, but as a real showman, using the audience and telling some anecdotes from his present and past, tales about a perfect life and family stories of his own.

The atmosphere was unbelievable, people were in the air, so that I couldn’t stand long on the second row, moving back a bit for most of the concert. Sadly the sound in the back of the room didn’t agree with Flogging Molly, it was low, way too low!

Moving to the top part of the Columbia Halle, the view was excellent and the sound somewhat better, but is not always an option as it is sometimes closed, but definitely worth it.

What impressed me more about Flogging Molly, is that although this was a “Life is good”, their newest album, most of the set list was made from classics I used to hear when I was just a teen (long time ago) making the crowd go crazy! 

Between some  beers and string cord sounds, the night went by pretty fast and the memories are gonna last for a good while for those who had the chance to be there!
