Shaft of Steel’s triumphant return to the stage

Shortly after the rock press started picking up on our debut EP last year, we were asked by the mighty VEGA to open for them and Newman on the London date of their UK tour. This was quite a coup for us, as not only was this our first gig with our new line up, but it was the first gig that most of us had played in over five years!

We hardly expected anyone to be there for us as the opening act, but the room was completely packed and the reaction from the crowd was unlike anything we’ve experienced before. It was great to see so many friends and family there and the lads in VEGA and Newman were all sound as a pound and delivered a night of top class melodic rock. It’s nights like this that make all the hard work worthwhile. Check out the gig diary video for a taste of what it was like.
