Eagles of Death Metal played Camden’s legendary KOKO last night, and the dynamic duo of Jesse “Boots Electric” Hughes and Josh “Baby Duck” Homme had the audience in the palms of their hands.
Having had Joey Castillo tour and drum with them for quite some time, Josh Homme was finally back behind the drums, where he sat in silence smoking and drinking, leaving crowd pleasing to frontman extraordinaire Jesse Hughes. Ladies man Hughes got the crowd going by complementing pretty blue eyed girls, before doing some damage control by running off stage to kiss his pretty lil’ lady Tuesday Cross. The night couldn’t have been any better, and the audience left KOKO sweatty, happy, and drunk. What a great way to spend a summer night! They will be touring around Europe this summer, before they’re back in the UK later this year. Check their website for dates.
