Live: Machine Head @ The Waterfront, Norwich (03/08/14)

Machine Head at The Waterfront ticket

 

Machine Head

Hostile

It was a long time ago that Machine Head outgrew places like Norwich. Big band, who just seem to keep growing, getting better with maturity? Too right. They haven’t needed to play places like this for many a year; just take a straight line down the middle and hit the regional big. Easy to fill, easy to kill.

Still it’s hard to believe it’s been 17 years since this city last shook to Machine Head’s riffs. We could kiss them then for announcing the Killers and Kings tour – a handful of dates in small lost-in-the-fringes places, overlooked but still loyal. Here at The Waterfront, Norwich, tickets sold out in moments. Clearly this has been a long time coming.
