VANCOUVER – It’s mind boggling how a simple two piece can produce such a loud and heavy sound. Admittedly, There was skepticism on whether the power of Royal Blood’s first two albums would translate live without additional members. Not only did they deliver a hard hitting set with all the fan favourites, they performed beyond expectation.

The bass and drums hard rock duo from Brighton, England opened with “Where Are You Now,” a track from their new album How Did We Get So Dark? The energy levels were immediately elevated. The new record was greatly featured throughout the show. After their set opener, Royal Blood exploded into their heavily-rotated radio-single “Lights Out.” Other memorable performances from their recent release include: “I Only Lie When I Love You,” “Hook, Line & Sinker,” and “Hole in Your Heart.”

Fans went ballistic when the as the band blasted through their hour-long set list, sprinkled with new and old songs alike. Royal Blood did not strive away from their fan-favourite self-titled debut. Nearly everyone in attendance knew the lyrics to each and every song performed, drunkenly echoing in unison during songs like “Little Monster,” “Figure It Out” and “Come on Over.”

The atmosphere at the Commodore was high and rowdy, it was clear that Royal Blood were pleased with the Vancouver crowd. Singer Mike Kerr stated he was having a pretty rough day until he started performing in front of the energized audience. Royal Blood ended their hard-hitting set with the song that put them on the map, “Out of the Black.”

If you missed this sought-after performance, you have a second chance to see Royal Blood perform on September 1, when they open for Guns n’ Roses at BC Place.
