The Apollo Stage at Sonisphere 2011 was the place to be on Friday, for the first time in history The Big 4 would be playing on the same stage together… Opening the stage were very special guests Diamond Head, the veteran British heavy metal band that never really hit the heights that their talent and songwriting deserved.

The only ever present member of Diamond Head is master axeman Brian Tatler, the man responsible for penning the iconic track ‘Am I Evil?’ which , as you will all know, was made famous by that little known band from California, Metallica

The latest incarnation still know how to rock the place, Nick Tart on vocals certainly has the voice to do the tracks justice, as do the rest of the band in their respective roles. Not a bad way to start the day at all…

Diamond Head setlist:
It’s Electric
Give It to Me
The Prince
Sucking My Love
Am I Evil?
