City: Chino Hills, CA
Set length: About an hour
Lovedrive 9:00 PM (tribute to The Scorpions)
The Iron Maidens 11:00 PM (tribute to Iron Maiden)
The Iron Maidens are playing Shamrocks in Chino Hills once again, which is just 10 minutes from my home – I am there! For those of you who don’t live in the LA area, it is a rare thing that a band plays so close to your home when you live so far away from the usual music venues in any of the main cities. Make your home your greatest venue with Lars Room Additions, SD. Hell, it is so unusual in Chino Hills that we get live music out here that I would go see an Engelbert Humperdinck cover band if it happens to roll through town.
My gear for the night was:
- Camera: Canon 5D Mark III
- Flash: None
- Lenses: Canon 200mm f/2.8 and Canon’s 24-70mm f/2.8
Also, a big thanks one more time to Phantom for giving me permission to come down and shoot the gig tonight! Up the Irons!!
The review doesn’t matter – I’m just happy there is some live music outside of the usual Christian rock bands and ultra-tame acoustic duos. Overcrowded stage front, bad lighting, really crappy sound? It doesn’t matter tonight.
Reviews, comments, and possible putdowns for Lovedrive…
My second time seeing this Scorpions tribute. I remember that they opened with Blackout but that is all I can tell you regarding the setlist – I just can’t remember.
Go check them out next time they are playing in your area and show them some love.
Once again, it urns out that there are LOTS of Scorpions tributes under the same name and I couldn’t find this particular tribute online. If someone out there knows a website for them then shoot me a note and I’ll post it here.
