First up, and thereby opening the Saturday after a few stage alterations, we have Dead Mans Whiskey
Second, on the Bill, we have Absolva, this band stepped up to the plate when the Treatment pulled due to Covid.
Third we have the one and only Myke Gray
Blaze Bayley followed up this fantastic set with his Iron Maiden years, no mistake for few band shots as this was the earlier Absolva
Fifth on the line up we have my favourite of the weekend, he never ceases to entertain, and has to be given the award for the Bass player ( Kelpie McKenzie ) who was having the most fun, this is the Kris Barras Band
Baz and the boys from Massive Wagons put on a show that went down great with the crowd and had them talking all the way around the arena
Danté and the boys from GUN were next up
Followed by Terrorvision who took to the stage as the night started to draw in, the air temperature dropped but the high energy from the stage kept everyone warm and glowing
Headliners for the Third Stonedead were the Mighty Uriah Heep. This epic band stepped in when the Black Star Rider pulled from the lineup due to Covid and its lingering prevalence. An awesome band that had a few lighting issues to start off with but proceeded to smash out a ‘Wizard’ set of old and new material enjoyed by both young and old. Stunning set from Mick Box and the boys!
The weekend went all too quickly. Full of giraffes and Krusher’s tireless old double entendre’s, old friends and new, and even a Spitfire flypast, all of which have been mentioned elsewhere. It only leaves me to say well done to the Stonedead team, yet another triumphant success. Here’s to next year!
