Atomic Rooster Live @ HRH Prog X, Shepherds Bush Empire

Atomic Rooster came out on stage with a swagger and confidence that gave me the feeling we’d be in for a great show, and they did not disappoint. Straddling a point between prog, heavy rock and psychedelia they performed a highly entertaining show. Pete French oozes charisma as he struts the stage using the mic stand to increase his stage presence while Steve Bolton performs with an energy that would put many younger performers to shame. Keyboards sweep through the tracks with ease and precision and are a key element, with keyboardist Adrian Gautrey clearly enjoying being back out on stage.
