What an incredible night yesterday by veteran Heavy Metal icons W.A.S.P. Fronted by the infamous Blackie Lawless, the band made a stop at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco to celebrate the 40th anniversary of a band that had its peak in the 80s and 90s but stayed relevant all the way up to today. The metal masters performed a series of their most popular songs including “L.O.V.E Machine,” “Wild Child,” “I Wanna Be Somebody,” as well as the controversial “Animal,” a song that Blackie had refused to perform for over a decade because of his religious beliefs. The show which included concertgoers of all ages was completely sold out, confirming the lasting appeal and almost cult-like status of these legendary rockers.
