W.A.S.P at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco (IN PHOTOS)

in SF Concert Reviews by

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.

Check out some photos of the unforgettable night below.
