Whitesnake @ Hellfest in Clisson, June 21 2013

Whitesnake @ Hellfest in Clisson, June 21 2013
Jesus...WHITESNAKE, can't remember the last time we saw them on a stage.
They've played @ Casino de Paris on June 04 2009 but we didn't go as Neil Young was playing @ Zénith on the same night.
Last time we saw them was, in fact, with Denny Carmassi on drums , Warren Di Martini & Adrian Vandenberg on guitars, Rudy sarzo on bass @ Elysée Montmartre on July 05 1994 and @ Geraardsbergen Fest on July 16 1994. Almost 20 years.
Now the line-up is Reb Beach & Doug Aldrich on guitars, Michael Devin on bass AND Tommy Aldridge back on drums.

Hard to follow Twisted Sister who did a fantastic show once again.
The sun is shinning it's warm and the sound is great, songs are classics , we also have some new ones ( see setlist below for details).
What's the point of having useless guitar solos in the middle of the set when you're only playing for an hour ? I guess David Coverdale needs to rest his voice as it's far from being perfect specially when he's trying to push it.
Needless to tell you that Tommy Aldridge is fantastic on drums.
Towards the end of the set the sun is down so we can now appreciate a bit of light show but it is freezing cold for the last few songs.
Luckily we have some good rocking & Rolling on stage to keep us warm.
Very nice set.
