Dallas, TX – Halestorm headlined Gas Monkey Live Thursday night to a packed house. Along with Dorothy and Lita Ford, it was a diverse crowd ranging from older rockers to middle school boys and girls to catch Halestorm. It was definitely a show that appealed to all ages.
Front women filled the stage all night but the star of the show was Lzzy Hale of Halestorm. Hale works the crowd from the moment she walks out – leaning over close to the fans with a big smile, raising her signature gold and white guitar in the air.
After a strong intro, Halestorm starts the show with “Love Bites (So Do I)” one of their first Grammy-winning singles release in 2012.
Lzzy Hale has a strong voice and commands the music with her raspy blues style. Her drummer and brother, Arejay Hale, pounds the drums while working the audience with stick flips and head banging. Guitarist Joe Hottinger plays some heavy riffs on solos and comes together with Lzzy, jamming center stage. Bassist Josh Smith lays down some heavy licks. Both Smith and Hottinger come center stage with Lzzy during the show but allow her to control the stage. It was a very well orchestrated performance by the band with fans singing along most of the night with hands held high and fists pumping.
An 18 song setlist is what fans got from Halestorm Thursday night. After a great opening acts from Dorothy and the always favorite Lita ford fans certainly got their fill on a school night.
