Extreme – 13th December 2017 – Newcastle O2 Academy

I’ve put more in this gallery than normal as I just couldn’t whittle them down any further! Extreme are one of those bands who are just fantastic to photograph with something going on at all times. The audience were treated to a set of classic funk rock, throwing in one of their biggest tunes “Get The Funk Out” only the third song in.

Nuno Bettencourt is undoubtedly the star for most people, his playing is still phenomenal and stage presence is just sheer rock star!! yep, they did ‘More Than Words’ as expected along with a couple of deeper cuts like ‘Kid Ego’ and ‘Play With Me’ keeping the set nicely balanced.

This was the first night of the UK tour but the band looked so relaxed and having a good time you’d think they were getting ready to go on holiday the next day!!
