  JÄGERMEISTER TOUR 2012: SKINDRED/THERAPY?/YASHIN/BLACK SPIDERS
O2 Academy, Glasgow
Wednesday 11th April 2012

Decked out in Jägermeister drapes and a dedicated Jäger Bar, this could only be the 2012 Jägermeister Tour stopping off at Glasgow's O2 Academy. With only a £5 entry fee for four bands, what's not to like? Well since this gig was moved from the smaller ABC to the larger O2 Academy (and packed to the rafters it was too), it was always going to be a good night.

First up to entertain tonight were festival favorites The Black Spiders. They came on and did what they do very well, rockin' the crowd in a short but loudly appreciated set. Amongst tonight's gems were 'Just Like A Woman' and the excellent 'KISS Tried to Kill Me'.



Next up were Scottish Metalcore band Yashin making their only appearance on this tour. Not having heard of them before, I was pleasantly surprised how good these guys actually are. With a short set to impress, vocalists Harry Radford and Kevin Miles did their best, laughing off the boos coming from the small minority in the crowd who took a dislike to them, and encouraging the rest of the audience to get involved. 'Runway Train' was amongst their best tracks here and I'll certainly be seeing these guys again.

At the halfway mark, the crowd was beginning to swell and there was high anticipation for the next act on the bill – Irish rockers Therapy?. With a 45 minute set, the audience embraced the band with a loud cheer as they took to the stage in their sharp suits and black ties. The band (evidently happy to be back in Glasgow) powered their way through their set.

A trio of newer numbers (and an unsubtle dig at David Cameron) went down well, but the biggest cheers of the night were for the classic tracks that made up the rest of the set including 'Teethgrinder', 'Nowhere' (including a snippet of The Beatles 'Nowhere Man') and 'Lunacy Booth' which featured an appearance by Lesley Rankin (ex-Silverfish) as guest vocalist.

As the Therapy? fans filtered away to the bar, it seemed like they had stolen the show tonight. That was until 10.00pm and the lights went down for the evening's headline act, Skindred.

AC/DC's 'Thunderstruck' blasted out over the PA followed by the 'Imperial March' from 'The Empire Strikes Back' before Skindred hit the stage to wild applause. Vocalist Benji Webbe appeared resplendent in his usual white outfit and stood motionless at the front of the stage looking out over his adoring crowd!

He's a man with great stage presence and this was borne out in his performance tonight, getting the crowd dancing to 'Cut Dem' and encouraging the crowd to sing-along to 'Doom Riff' whilst also managing to get a good proportion of them jumping around like total loonies!

Bass player Daniel Pugsley had his moment of glory with a long intro to 'World Domination' before Webbe brought things back around by thanking the evening's sponsors for making the ticket price a bargain before bluntly telling the audience to take the money they'd saved and buy a t-shirt.

A shortened version of 'State Of Emergency' which made way for 'Destroy The Dancefloor' from the band's second album kept the momentum of their set up at full.

Things took a slightly strange twist with the inclusion of Beyonce's 'Single Ladies' being played before the band launched into 'Game Over' with large strobe lights reaching out into the crowd which went absolutely crazy again, including a few crowd surfers defying the venue's rules.

The lights turned blood red whilst the band made a credible attempt at Slayer's 'Reign In Blood' before the band launched into 'Nobody'. The night was brought to a close with a great version of 'Warning' from their latest album, 'Union Black', and that was another very successful night of the tour done and dusted.
