A lesson in sincerity!

Voodoo Six/Steve Harris (British Lion)

Barba Negra Club Budapest, 20.11.2016

Sometimes, people want to do something different than what they did before. We all know who is Steve Harris, we all know what is his place in music history, and we all know how much quality this man possess.

This is a really strange experience because we used to watch and listen him with Iron Maiden for last 35 years, and in 2012. He released his first solo album called ”British lion”. There’s no need to mention that it`s different than Iron Maiden in almost all aspects, but it doesn’t mean that it’s something bad.

The concert was held in Budapest in Barba Negra club. I came from Belgrade just to see this concert.

The support band for this gig was a British hard rock band called Voodoo Six, which is already very well know among Maiden fans that went to see them on a Maiden England tour. They brought a great positive vibe immediately when they entered the stage.

Voodoo Six

They started with the song ”Falling knives”, the opening track from their latest release called songs to invade countries to. They played also some new songs, which were a kind of announcement for a new album. The audience liked them in that moment, but from what I saw, their songs are not that much recognizable. A very few people in the audience knowed the songs.

They were ok, but nothing more than that. Shortly after Voodoo Six, Mr. Harris entered the stage. They started their show with

Steve Harris

This is my god, the opening track from a British Lion album. Many people disliked the singer Richard Taylor because of the bad production on the album, but he sounds much better live, and he is a great frontman. The band played a couple of songs that are not on their first album, and those songs are a little bit different from old material.

Some of them are heavier and can easily be the part of Iron Maiden catalogue. One of those songs is Spitfire“. I can image the performance of that song by mighty Maiden. Other new sons are “Guineas and crowns“, “Last chance“and “Bible black“, which is really heavy and epic.

Steve Harris

The most waited and the best received song by the audience was us against the world. Whole club sang all the words, and this is maybe the biggest hit on the British lion album.

It`s really incredible experience to watch this living legend playing in a club in front of 300 people besides playing sold out arenas and stadiums with his main band. He plays with the same passion and fire in front of 300 and 50 000 people.

Steve Harris

He is the big professional and great artist and person who respects his fans. After the gig, the meet&greet session is organized. He didn`t want to go until all people didn`t get pictures with him and autographs. What a great man and artist!

Here are some video clips of the concert, enjoy it:
