On this day the two Main Stages welcomed pure Rock n Roll. Deadland Ritual was pleasant and enjoyable to see, sitting on the grass, appreciating the not so warm afternoon and drinking a beer with friends. It’s always a pleasure to see the iconic Geezer Butler rocking the bass. Beyond some originals, they covered some songs from Black Sabbath, that made obviously every single person in the venue sing their lungs out, but they also did covers from Velvet Revolver and Billy Idol.
Next on stage was Eagles of Death Metal, performing in France for the first time after the attacks on Bataclan. The vocalist Jesse Hughes paid a tribute to the victims, by wearing a badge of “Life for Paris”, which is one of the associations of the victims of the attacks. Familiar already to so many listeners around the world, EODM envelops the crowd with a sound that couples the same frequency and energy along the older generation and the younger ones. Later, with ZZ Top getting up on stage, the older flame began to burn the brightest. This Rock n roll’s legends took a thousand-fold metalheads crowd into a hip-shaking bonanza of the utmost style.
Kiss was the most anticipated band on Saturday. During the day many people were cosplaying the band members, with characteristic facial paintings. It was the concert that had the greatest number of assistance, a whole venue singing for the last time the classics from the band. And they didn’t disappoint, their presence on stage was magnificent. This show was really good, even a non-Kiss fan can agree on that.
