Highly Suspect | Electric Ballroom, 01/07/22
“We are experiencing a lot of technical difficulties tonight, so thank you for sticking with us”, lead singer of American rock band Highly Suspect, Johnny Stevens told the crowd at the sold-out Electric Ballroom, before launching into hit song Bloodfeather.
Electricity soared through the young audience, their love and dedication to Highly Suspect creating a palpable atmosphere.
“We’re gonna have a rowdy night,” was undoubtedly a huge underestimation of the raw energy of these fans, who refused to stop, drinking in every moment, every song and moshing as if their lives depended on it.
Nearly an hour and a half, a torn shirt due to crowd surfing and an incredible performance later, the band were done, ready to do a second show the next day at the same venue. A very impressive welcome back after Covid-19, this band is only on the rise.
