Heston – chariot not required.

The last time Heston played at the Bike’N’Hound, they took up more than half the pub. And I was gutted that I couldn’t stay for more than the first song. It’s been more than a year since they last played and while their stage setup, thankfully, appears to have cut down, their energy and volume level certainly hasn’t.

A great mix of classic and newer rock tracks played throughout the night, moving from Whisky in the Jar (Thin Lizzy) through to Blink 182’s Paranoid, followed by T-Rex and 20th Century Boy.

There were also a couple of curveballs thrown in – just when you think it’s one thing, it’s another… A rocked-up cover of Poker Face, interspersed with riffs from Papa was a Rolling Stone, finishing with Breaking the Law and mixing through into Ace of Spades. Toward the end a fantasic flow from Won’t get Fooled Again into Pinball Wizard, then Sweet Home Alabama into Fat Bottom Girls and Highway to Hell.

Add in a few tracks from Springsteen, Greenday, even the Osmonds, combined with a stunning light show and the volume somewhere around 17, this was a show you’ll regret not being at.

Don’t miss they’re next on on 19th September
