Image Gallery: Alter Bridge + Living Colour @ Sydney HiFi – Feb 25, 2014

We were fortunate enough to watch Alter Bridge‘s recent headlining side show gig at Sydney’s HiFi Bar, supported by the legendary Living Colour. After photographing the typical first three songs, we then had the privilege of watching the rest of the show from within the photo pit! CLICK HERE or on the thumbnails to view our 33-photo image gallery and read our review below:

It almost seems absurd that a chart-topping US rock band like Alter Bridge should be playing a venue as small as Sydney’s HiFi. So, it makes sense that tonight’s show – a Soundwave sideshow – should be completely sold out. Indeed, the line of punters stretches from the front door, around the side and turns back on itself to the front door. The Tremonti (AB’s guitarist) tattoo taking one guy’s entire lower leg tells us that he’s probably been here most of the day waiting.

Funk rock legends Living Colour open up tonight’s festivities, celebrating 25 years of their iconic album ‘Livid’ with a room already full of eager audience members. Each musical legends in their own right, guitarist Vernon Reid, bassist Doug Wimbish, drummer Will Calhoun and singer Corey Glover are equal parts tight and loose all at the same time in a magical way that makes almost no sense and total sense all at once.  It’s no wonder AB front man Myles Kennedy later proclaimed that one of the primary reasons we were seeing them tonight was so they could play a gig with them and that it “was a dream come true”.
