  • Ladies and gentlemen!

    Here are some pictures from the metal show I attended on Sunday, March 25th 2018 at TD Place in Ottawa. I had a blast and I hope you will enjoy these pictures!

    Ottawa Metal City: Black Star Riders + Saxon + Judas Priest @ TD Place

    Black Star Riders were an amazing opening band: great mixture of hard rock and heavy metal with an outstanding bass guitar player and a sympathetic singer who felt at ease communicating with the crowd.

    British heavy metal veterans Saxon played a longer set than usual because they were recording for a future live album! The band was in great form and sounds much better on stage than on its studio records.

    Ottawa Metal City: Black Star Riders + Saxon + Judas Priest @ TD Place

    The crowd was waiting for Judas Priest to hit the stage.

    The band opened with the great title song and opener of its new studio record Firepower.
