Felicia from Allison Chains reached out and invited me to come down to check out the show in Anaheim, which is just 20’ish minutes from my house.
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, 15mm f/2.8.
Cool place. Can get overpacked inside. Good sound. Oversaturated LED lighting at times, but otherwise pretty good. Good food. Not-too-expensive drinks (but not inexpensive like at a dive bar). Easy parking. ‘nough said…

Reviews, comments, and possible putdowns for Lovedrive…
This is my first Scorpions tribute band. Scorpions fans can be a little picky about this band, and the main key to being a Scorpions tribute is to nail the Klaus Meine (singer) role, which Lovedrive did very well. I could have done without the Rudolph antics as it cheapens the effect when it comes off as forced, which it kind of is in this case. BUT, overall Lovedrive did a REALLY good job of delivering the sound of The Scorpions. I was hoping to hear China White tonight but it wasn’t to be – only the “crowd favorites” were delivered.
Turns out that there are LOTS of Scorpions tributes under the same name and I couldn’t find this particular version online. If someone out there knows a website for them then shoot me a note and I’ll post it here.
Great tribute – go check them out!
