The Dead Daisies @Fremont Country Club: Las Vegas 9-12-18
By: Leah Burlington
Guitar Center: Daisyland
We got up front and personal with The “Mighty” Dead Daisies at our Las Vegas Guitar Center at Town Square here in Vegas. The fans that showed up were treated to a short acoustic set (Four songs!) with the band and a short Q&A. After that we were escorted to the store where we were all given posters, stickers and photo ops with the entire band!! They signed anything we had and treated all of us fans like GOLD!! This is how done!!! That was a very special moment for all of us! Thank you to John Corabi, Doug Aldrich, Deen Castronovo, Marco Mendoza and to David Lowy! We appreciate all you guys did!! Thank you!! No one out there does what this band does. They do the acoustic sets before the show, (called Daisyland!) with a FREE meet and greet. They sign anything and everything! They pose for pics and smile and chat. They also put on a KILLER show and then after the show another quick meet and greet and more signed posters and guitar picks!! The guys are just so generous with their time for the Fans!! These guys are one of the most FAN friendly bands I have EVER seen!! Thank you The Dead Daisies for ALL you do for the Fans and all the great energy you give to us!!
A few hours after the acoustic set at Guitar Center we all headed downtown to see The Dead Daisies with Hookers & Blow at Fremont Country Club!! Was good to see so many friends come out for a kick ass rock show on a Weds night!! The show was off the hook!! Both bands brought the rock n roll spirit to the stage and blew everyone away! I had a blast shooting and rocking, like I always do!! Fan for LIFE!! Music like this and bands like this, makes life so worth living!! The Dead Daisies, we love you guys!! I had the best time on Weds night’s show at Fremont Country Club!! They Rocked!!!
John Gist review:
Yesterday was a really cool day. We went to Guitar Center and got to meet all the guys from The Dead Daisies John Corabi, Marco Mendoza , Deen Castrovono, Doug Aldrich and David Lowy. They played a few songs, answered some questions from the audience and told stories.
Then off to Fremont Country Club to catch the show The Dead Daisies with Dizzy Reed’s Hookers & Blow + one more, local boys Honor Amongst Thieves got an earlier start than many of us were expecting but for me the good news is they are playing the Kyng and The Watchers At Count’s Vamp’d next Thursday at my Vegas Rock Revolution Showcase. (More on that show in this issue!)
Dizzy Reed of Guns N’ Roses band Hookers and Blow guided us through various GNR songs to keep the energy pumping some as the crowd continued to fill up this large venue. The darn song “Pretty Tied Up” has been in my head all day now!
The Dead Daises took the stage and really showed what an amazing collection of musicians are part of this band. Highway Star got the crowd in a frenzy. The Dead Daisies put on a hell of an energetic show and brought the house down!
