26th October 2004 Olympia Theatre, Dublin
WHITESNAKE, support: Ham Sandwich
“Ham Sandwich” replaced “The Quire boys” as Whitesnake´s support act and their 30 minutes set was not a very good one.
The songs lacked originality and the crazy behaviour of Ham Sandwich’s guitar player couldn´t make up for it.
Although their female singer had a nice voice and was nice to look at they didn’t quite spark.
Not good at all
Just 10 minutes later “Whitesnake” hit the stage for a 2-hour happening at the Olympia. Me, my girlfriend and my son Kevin happened to be at the front row, directly in front of a huge set of speakers and we were blown away in the very sense of the word.
David Coverdale, already 53 years of age, still behaved as if he would be in his late teens and his attitude was not always nice: He is a real fucked up rock and roll singer !! And people like him for it.
The band itself was as brilliant as a band can be. They were really friendly, outgoing and passionate musicians and nice to watch for the duration of the concert.
