Ahead of their much-anticipated appearances at the Ramblin' Man Fair in Maidstone this afternooon, Saturday 23rd July, The Dead Daisies together with Inglorious descended on the bright lights of Dublin to kick off a four-date UK/Ireland mini tour.

It's not very often I'm as excited about catching an opening act as I am about seeing the main event but Inglorious aren't your run of the mill support band. This year's release of their debut album has sent shockwaves across the rock world and has given the whole scene a much-needed kick up the arse and their ever-growing live reputation has made them one of the most must see bands treading the boards today.

Some have said that a lot of hype has been heaped upon this band; well there wasn't so much as a snifter of that tonight. They immediately marked their territory with a full-blooded 'Until I Die' and then ripped through a terrorising 'Breakaway'. Bearing in mind this was an extremely sticky and clammy night in the capital, this intimate venue had virtually turned into a large sauna. With every song, mainman Nathan James brought the atmosphere to near delirious levels with his powerful delivery.

This guy is a beast of a man with a proper rock star presence who could probably flatten a load of All Blacks if he sneezed at them and he has an unbelievable set of pipes that gives this band an undeniable stamp of class. After a mild spot of self-indulgence with a flawless version of Rainbow's 'I Surrender', Inglorious really rolled out the goodies. 'High Flying Gypsy', 'Warning' and 'Girl Got A Gun' all went down like a keg of free Guinness and sound much meatier live.

But hands down, it was 'Holy Water', a track that has become their signature tune, that left the biggest mark. Just having a glance around at the contorted faces yelling the chorus, this track already has classic status and will no doubt stop you in your tracks in forty years time. Next time Inglorious hit Dublin's fair city, I suspect they'll be playing a much longer set.

The last time I saw The Dead Daisies in Dublin they were more or less a completely different band. That was in 2013, supporting Black Star Riders and with a line up that included Guns N' Roses duo Dizzy Reed and Richard Fortus plus Aussie singer Jon Stevens, only guitarist and founder member David Lowey remains.

Fast forward three years and some serious heavyweights make up this enduring rock group. Three ex-Whitesnake members, drummer Brian Tichy, guitar god Doug Aldrich and bassist Marco Mendoza are joined by the finest singer to front Motley Crue, John Corabi. With the majority of the crowd looking physically drained at this stage, you would have been right in thinking that The Dead Daisies had their work cut out. But at 9.20 when 'Whole Lotta Sabbath' rang out over the PA, you could already feel a second wind coming. One by one, a who's who of rock strutted onto to the stage and laid out their intentions in style with Alex Harvey's 'Midnight Moses' followed by Howlin Wolf's 'Evil'.

With their new album, 'Make Some Noise', imminent, the title track got an early airing and went down a storm with some impressive fist pumping from the natives. John Corabi, looks like the cat that got the cream in this band and he commanded the stage tonight with relative ease, throwing some nifty shapes and never missed the opportunity to get up close and sweaty with the crowd. Lead off single, 'Long Way To Go', obviously benefitted from a lot of plugging across social media and there didn't seem to be a sinner around me who didn't squeal along.

They made no secret of their influences as they whipped out some very tasty cover versions. Free's 'All Right Now' and The Who's 'Join Together' brought fans, young and old, together in a pit of classic rock abandon. The always-welcoming 'Lock n' Load' gave the gasping hordes a little breather before Brian Tichy gave a right master class with a ball-bursting drum solo. The usual comparisons to Animal from The Muppets were being made of course but mark my words, this guy ain't no animal, he's a mother fuckin' savage. Any budding skin beaters in the crowd who before tonight thought they were the dogs bollox, more than likely went harmonica shopping the next day.

But Tichy wasn't the only genius on show tonight; "new guy" Doug Aldrich effortlessly banged out the licks all night, displaying why he deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as the Eddie Van Halens and Steve Vais of this world. Two more new tracks, 'The Last Time I Saw The Sun' and 'Mainline' were given the full treatment by Corabi, but will probably be better appreciated when the new album hits the shelves on August 5th.

An ear splitting 'Helter Skelter' closed the main set out before the band the band humourously jigged back to the stage to a deafening "Ole, Ole, Ole" from the Irish faithful. The evening rounded off with Creedence Clearwater's 'Fortunate Son', a track that has been given an extra pair of balls by the Daisies with fulsome thumping guitars.

When the band exited and the houselights came on, a lot of the crowd looked like they had gone twenty-four rounds with a bloodthirsty heavyweight. But the reality was they had just been hit square between the eyes with a proper rock n' roll show.
