20 years have passed since their formation and 15 years since their abrupt break up, House Of Pain returned to the stage with a setlist of classic tracks to entertain the Saturn Stage crowds at Sonisphere! Everlast and DannyBoy took to the stage with a live band backing them up but unfortunately DJ Lethal decided not to join them despite being there at the same time.
Entering the stage playing a cover of The Shadows classic track ‘Apache’, House Of Pain announced themselves! Following on from ‘Apache’ was the intro track ‘Salutations’, to truly announce that House Of Pain were back and about to launch into a hit packed set…
Blasting through ‘Danny Boy, Danny Boy’ and ‘Shamrocks And Shenanigans’, it was clear from the faces of both the fans and House of Pain that they were glad to be back and loving every minute of it.
Even those in the crowd that had never seen House Of Pain before or even bought one of there CDs knew at least one of the tracks in the set, we are of course talking about the monster hit and still a club favourite, ‘Jump Around’ which had to be and was the set closer!
