Piledriver – Live in Europe – The Rockwall Tour

Releasedate:  28-04-2023
Label: Rockwall Records

Many years are on the counter for Piledriver and and right when the band was doing their last tour the pandemic hit. Three concerts were recorded which are now being released in a box that includes a blue ray, a dvd, three cd’s a poster and an extended booklet. A must have for a long time fan of the band we would say.

The guys have set themselves a name through the years of classic rock releases. Eventually tours end and the show they played in Zwolle was also the last time they got to be with their keyboard player Rudi Peeters who unfortunately passed away. Naturally, the band dedicated the release to him, which makes it extra special.
Interesting to see is that with the three shows they did choose a bit of a different set list, which has of course their hits along, but also makes that you can easily watch the three shows in row as it is not too repetitive. The sound and video quality is quite decent, which makes it pleasant to watch.
One of the shows, the one one in Minehead (UK) is recorded at a Status Quo convention which seems like an interesting match with Piledriver.

Altogether this box gives the buyer a good worth their money. A lot of live material, bonus goodies and a diverse set of Piledriver ‘s music. We can imagine Rudi would be very proud on this release.
