Deftones live @ o2 apollo, Manchester. 6th May 2017. Review
Unknown to me at the time, and seemingly the headline for all reviews of this concert, is that Chino the band’s lead singer did this gig with a broken Metatarsal. Even more impressive is that unless you didn’t find this out, you probably would have been none the wiser.
Deftones put on another exhilarating 1 hour 30 minutes set consisting of 21 tracks. Only the 2nd time I have seem them live and both occasions have been superb. Missing the first two tracks due to being stuck 6 deep at the bar, and missing My Own Summer (Shove It) was a bit of a kick in the nuts. In support of the latest album Gore, obviously there’s a fair few tracks from the new album, but they also didn’t disappoint with a number of hits from their ‘nu-metal’ era and plenty of tracks from the previous 3 albums, which in my opinion are probably their finest albums. Of course the band didn’t disappoint with a fair number of fan favourites also.
Below some pictures from myself stuck in the stands, and some videos I’ve picked up from YouTube, as well as the full set list.
