Ah the sight of spandex, leopard print and hair sprayed hair, it’s like the 80′s had never left st Thomas. The night was opened by AC/DC cover band Bonfire and opened well it was too, with many a dancer taking to the front of the stage if not a handy table.
The first few opening songs of Leather Snake were interrupted by sound problems, but once resolved, the band brought back the 80s rock scene as if it had always been here.
The number of flashbacks I suffered were countless and that was just from the outfits.
While to many, the 80s rock scene was rather light in the loafers with more hair bands making it big then true heavy metal, Leather Snake played hits from Maiden, Dio, and Bon Jovi among others.
The one thing I did find disturbing was the number of small children and babies in the crowd. Having been to many concerts over the years, I know what it’s like to wake up the morning after a concert and have ringing in the ears. I personally don’t believe that young children and babies should be at a concert with the decibel levels such as last night. From the back of the concert last night the decibel level was peaking around 100 decibels. As I say this is just my opinion but I would be surprised if i am alone on this.
The hits kept coming as Leather Snake rocked us like a hurricane, gave us the final countdown, talked dirty to us and took us round and round. I think tonight’s concert probably suited St. Thomas a lot. If you loved the 80s, you will have loved tonight!
