Machine Head | February 18, 2012

The mighty Machine Head wrapped up their North American tour with a hometown show at the Warfield in San Francisco. While the show wasn’t quite sold out, the void of the empty seats in the back of the balcony was filled with the enthusiasm of the die-hards that turned the general admission floor into a sea of flailing limbs.

So often a band looks flat-out tired by the end of a tour.  Not so the guys from Machine Head who were clearly invigorated and feeding off the energy … definitely in their element headlining the big stage with a tricked-out light show.  Phil and Adam rocked the f%^& out, doing their part to keep the crowd moving.  For his part, Robb was talkative, tossing cups of vodka into the crowd to his obvious amusement.  A nearly 2 hour set including a Dimebag tribute and yes, there was blood.
