I was fortunate enough to see Halestorm perform live in Kansas CIty just a few days ago...just this last Monday as a matter of fact...and let me tell you they did not disappoint!!!

I did hang with them for a few min before the set and they were extremely cordial and pleasant as always...I have always said from day one they have one of the freshest and most outstanding sounds in rock today.
