Metal/Prog Metal Concert Reviews


Live July 2000

Review by Brian Angotti

With last years successful summer reunion tour under their belts the original glam slam kings of noise decided to do it again. The band are embarking on city after city with co-headliners Cinderella and support acts Dokken and Slaughter this year. The turn out of the crowds proves Poison is still a big draw. When the lights dim, all hell is going to break loose. The band was in top form. Anyone seeing them in the old days knows they can rock, but it was a whole new scene this year. Seeing bassist Bobby Dall was pleasing a pleasure. He has so much energy! The band played crowd favorites "Unskinny Bop", "Fallen Angel", "Nothin' But A Good Time", and "Look What the Cat Dragged In" opening the show. Although touring to support Power to the People (the band's latest effort featuring live tracks and five new songs), they only played two numbers from the album. These were the title track and, surprisingly, the awesome track "I Hate Every Bone in Your Body But Mine" sung by Mr. Deville. Cutting his guitar solo to perform the lead vocals, C.C. did not give up the opportunity to plug his new album with his band Samantha 7. Poison closed the set with encore song "Talk Dirty To Me". The show was no disappointment. Everything from the pyro to the stage energy was perfect. This was a very entertaining concert.
