Live in 2013: Hayseed Dixie at the Princess Royal Theatre, Port Talbot

I've been aware of Hayseed Dixie for a few years now but as they are stalwarts of the Festival Circuit I've never really had the opportunity of seeing them live. I didn't know how a largely Port Talbot crowd would take to them as we very rarely get any major band play live in Port Talbot. I shouldn't have been worried. They were very well received and the place was bouncing!
The band played an amazingly energetic set which included all the favourites such as Highway to Hell, Shook Me All Night Long, Ace of Spades.
They also sprinkled in a few self penned songs which also went down well.
Their version of this song brought the house down with the whole crowd singing along.
But the boys didn't play this one :(

The band played a great version of the Aerosmith smash - walk this way - & this is the Port Talbot performance.

And they ended the gig with a fantastic version of Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb. This is the version they played in Manchester a few days later.

If you get a chance to see them, GO. You'll have a fabulous singalong (& dancing) night out.
