DEAD DAISIES – Vancouver Sept. 2, 2023

Well, it’s been a few years since I’ve seen The Dead Daisies, and they did not disappoint. I have been a fan since the early days of 2015 when John Corabi was brought into the fold of the band as the lead singer. Last night’s lineup consisted of John Corabi (Lead Vocals), Brian Tichy (Drums), Doug Aldrich (Guitar), David Lowy (Guitar), and Michael Devin (Bass). The original band started out in 2012 and there have been numerous changes to the lineup. But this one has to be in my opinion the best. You have former players from Whitesnake throughout the years (Tichy, Aldrich and Devin) and then you have John Corabi (Scream, Motley Crue).

The Dead Daisies have hit the road again on the Resurrected tour. Vancouver was the last show on the Canadian tour and according to the man himself, Corabi, it was the loudest show of the Canadian tour. John Corabi during the set explained that in 30 years he had not yet played in Vancouver, Canada until that night. Even though he had spent 7 months in Vancouver recording Motley Crue’s album Motley Crue in 1994.

The Dead Daisies played their hearts out. John Corabi strutted from one side of the stage to the other. Doug Aldrich played stage right but was center stage a lot of the time showing off his amazing guitar skills, Michael Devin was stage left and kept the bass pumping throughout the night, and David Lowy was by the drum riser and center stage showing off his shredding skills to the delight of the fans.

The Dead Daisies played for roughly a 90+ minute set. The band covered everything from the very start of their career in 2012 release to songs from their last release Radiance (2021). The Dead Daisies also released a Best Of in 2023. Corabi, Lowry, Aldrich, Tichy, and Devin are a supergroup to be reckoned with and they brought the show to Vancouver. They all in their own rights owned every piece of that stage. Killer vocals, soaring guitar solos, pounding bass solos, and a kick-ass drum solo. They performed a few covers throughout the night and they sounded as good or if not better than the original versions of the song. The last song of the night was “Slide It In” a cover of the Whitesnake classic and they brought the house down with it. It was an amazing night with a great band made up of exceptional performers.
