Danish rockers Volbeat put on an enthusiastic performance at a sold out New York City show last night (April 9) at Best Buy Theater with support from the very talented Danko Jones and Spoken.

Fans from Canada, Sweden and all over the U.S. made up the packed house that Volbeat performed to on the release date of their brand new album ‘Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies.’ It was also a special night for the band’s newest member and native New Yorker Rob Caggiano who got to perform in front of his hometown crowd with Volbeat.

The band kicked off their set with ‘Hallelujah Goat,’ ‘A New Day’ and ‘Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood.’ Hips were shaking and fists were also pumping to some of the band’s new material, such as ‘The Hangman’s Body Count,’ ‘Lola Montez’ and their cover of Young the Giant’s ‘My Body.’

Volbeat also treated fans to short snippets of classic songs by Slayer and Judas Priest as well as performing part of Johnny Cash’s ‘Ring Of Fire’ which led into an explosive rendition of ‘Sad Man’s Tongue.’ Danko Jones also joined the Volbeat guys onstage and served as co-vocalist for their awesome Misfits cover of ‘Angelf—.’ Mosh pits broke out and crowdsurfers were en masse during such favorites as ‘Still Counting,’ ‘The Human Instrument,’ ‘A Warrior’s Call,’ ‘The Mirror and the Ripper’ and set-ending song ‘Pool of Booze, Booze, Booza.’

It’s no surprise why Volbeat have had such a strong and loyal following as they know how to have fun onstage and truly bring a unique experience to today’s music scene. Anthrax fans may be bummed about Rob Caggiano’s absence but Volbeat fans definitely have something to cheer about. Caggiano took command of the stage and not only shredded and melted faces off but he had a certain radiance and vibrant energy onstage which added to the overall chemistry of Volbeat as a whole.

Speaking of vibrant, Danko Jones put on one hell of a performance. These Candian rockers knew exactly how to win over the hearts of New Yorkers with their catchy songs spanning their long past a decade of music. Jones himself provided humorous charm onstage and had fans laughing in between songs when his impeccable chords weren’t resonating throughout the entire venue.

Arkansas rockers Spoken brought some serious energy as they opened up the show. The band is touring in support of their latest disc ‘Illusion’ and their 30-minute set left a lasting impact on many fans.
