Black Stone Cherry / Shinedown / Halestorm
Venue: SSE Wembley Arena, London
Southern rockers reveal an arena-sized heart
Clearly used to large venues, HALESTORM  have enough class and power to win over anyone still unfamiliar with Lzzy Hale and her crew.
SHINEDOWN  fully use their short stint to rouse everyone. Led by the commanding presence of vocalist Brent Smith, they come across with real conviction. BLACK STONE CHERRY  belong on the big stage. Yeah Man begins with an effective portion of The Doors’ Roadhouse Blues, while Chris Robertson’s vocals and Ben Wells’ guitar combine beautifully on new song The Rambler.
