Wolfmother rock Download 2007

Aussie band pay tribute to Megadeth and Velvet Revolver

Wolfmother performed a new track during their sun-drenched performance at Download Festival today (June 8).

The Aussie rockers tore through a 50 minute set made up of songs from their self-titled debut which also included new track ‘Pleased To Meet You’.

During the set singer Andrew Stockdale, who was sporting a black eyelined patch, also paid tribute to metal veterans Megadeth, who performed earlier in the day and Velvet Revolver who took to the main stage after his band.


He told the crowd: “You all enjoying yourselves today – a bit of Megadeth, a bit Velvet Revolver“.

The trio received the biggest cheer for their hit single ‘Woman’, which saw Chris Ross play the keyboard tilted on its side before going on to play the likes of ‘White Unicorn’, ‘Joker And The Thief’, ‘Dimension’ and ‘Apple Tree’.
