At the end of 2010, Volbeat toured all over Europe to promote their new record Beyond Hell / Above Heaven. Nevertheless, no concert was scheduled in France back then...
The fans have been waiting patiently but tonight, Volbeat were finally back in Paris, 3 years after the show at La Scène Bastille in 2008.
So, this was going to be a very special night. Not only it was Volbeat's return... but there were also some special guests in the audience.
The concert started with Motörhead's Born To Raise Hell, a good intro to sum up what was going to come.
The tour has been long and Michael Poulsen's voice sounded a bit tired. He couldn't reach very hight notes, but nevertheless he did a good performance.
Volbeat's best known influences are certainly Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Metallica. But there's much more than that!
|Volbeat played a few excerpts from cover songs, including We Will Rock You and I Want To Break Free from Queen and South Of Heaven and Raining Blood from Slayer.
They didn't forget their homeland: Michael said that in Denmark they had King Diamond, before playing part of Come To The Sabbath from Mercyful Fate.
Worth to note, Mercyful Fate and The Misfits are also some of Metallica's main influences.
One of the last songs Volbeat played was Thanks, a tune written for the fans. A dozen of fans were invited on stage for a little party during this one.
This was a good night of rock and metal. It was a pleasure to see Volbeat headlining a concert again.
