Fuel’s Rockin’ Road Trip ‘17 Torches Louisville, KY

Photos and words by Brandon Hanks

One of my personal favorite bands growing up, Fuel, took their Rockin’ Road Trip ‘17 Tour through Louisville, Kentucky and reminded fans of old and new that they were very much still relevant. They had enough gas in the tank to put on a hell of a show performing the classics from “Sunburn” (my favorite) to “Shimmer,” and even a new one, “Puppet Strings.” Vocalist Brett Scallions was very much involved with the crowd at Diamond Pub Concert Hall, explaining how much the old hits still hold up to this day and even going on to remind everyone that they were at a rock ‘n’ roll show; it was time to have fun, shake your asses, and throw the horns up!

FuelI was reminded with each song why I decided to take this last second trip to Louisville to catch this show! Scallions has still very much got the fuel to scorch any crowd young or old, keeping patrons involved and enthused with every note he played, and even took the time to wish the crowd farewell for the night. For this fan and photographer it was a night to remember filled with memories hearing the old school tunes and experiencing the band live for the first time, this band still has the sound any new band would in their prime. Catch Fuel on tour this summer in a city near you.
