Commodore Ballroom – Vancouver
Vancouver’s Commodore Ballroom played host to one of Canada’s favourite heavy metal front men on Friday night when Sebastian Bach brought his Home Away from Home tour to town. Surprisingly it was the first time that Bach had played at the venue, and based on the enthusiasm of the sold-out crowd in attendance it was long overdue.
The set proved to be a good mix of songs from Bach’s time fronting Skid Row, as well as some more recent numbers from Bach’s solo outings. Crowd favourites like 18 and Life had the audience pumped right from the start. Bach touchingly took the time to remember Anthony Bourdain and John Dunsworth (Mr Lahey) before playing I Remember You. This was just one moment, that stood out in many interactions with the fans on the evening, which lead to Bach continuing to have the popularity that he has with fans.
Altogether it was a great night of rock music, and for many it was a fun trip down memory lane.
The tour continues this week, with one more data in BC (Kelowna) before continuing the trek across Canada.
