New Daisy Theatre saw a bloody good time on this steamy summer evening.

Chad and the boys of Hellyeah brought heavy metal to Memphis, TN. on August the 6th. From the moment that drummer Vinnie Paul appeared behind his drum kit the crowd knew they were in for a head banging loud concert. Lead singer Chad Gray is know for his signature look of bloody face, wild hair, and great heavy metal voice that can also bring it down. The new hit song “Love falls” show the full range of Chad’s voice, not to mention the talent of the entire band. Hellyeah is out on tour in support of their 2016 album Undeniable. With Songs such as “Human” “Love falls” and “I don’t care anymore” (Phil Collins cover) this is an album that any metal head should have in their library.
Chad loves to get up close with fans and photographers too. Many performers choose to stay far away from the edge of the stage but not Chad, he spent much of the night right up front and came out into the crowd more than once! This was a great show and a great night. Now if I can only get my ears to stop ringing! I can’t wait to catch Hellyeah out on the road again, hopefully sooner than later!
