The Struts, The Fonda Theater, November 3, 2016
The Struts, a band that has played for thousands while opening for the likes of The Rolling Stones and Motley Crue, played to a sold out crowd at the intimate Fonda Theater in Hollywood.
The Struts were Performers! They weren’t just there to play music – they made it a real show. They had the crowd in it from the get go and knew how to work the audience. They had the entire venue on their feet and dancing. Cool to see them with their first US released CD. They played almost all the songs off that CD. Everybody Wants is the first studio album from The Struts, which was originally released on July 28th, 2014. It was re-mixed and re-mastered for US release. Five new songs were added and three were removed and it was made available on March 4th, 2016.
They gave 110% the whole time. Luke and the rest of the band always interacted with the crowd and make eye contact. And of course, there was enough glitter to last a life time. They are a definite throwback to the 70’s Glam Rock scene. Luke Spiller has the moves of Mick Jagger and the voice of young Freddie Mercury. Adam Slack is an amazing guitar player and rhythm section of Gethin Davies and Jed Elliott make these lads a formidable powerhouse of stadium rock.
