Bam Margera F**kface Unstoppable

Bam Margera F**kface Unstoppable tour last graced Birmingham O2 Academy back in July with a bit of a shambled performance, but the hardcore loving Margera fans still had a good time and went wild at all the dick and innuendo jokes, but will the F**kface Unstoppable tour be any better this time around?

As the first support Tussk takes to the stage the room is dotted with people mainly at the bar.

Tussk

A women from the crowd shouted to the singer “I Love your beard” with a quick reply from the singer, Sean Beck “I love your beard too” which felt pretty AKWARD, the singer went on to give a explanation of mumbled words which basically sounded like a sorry to the women.

The band was giving it their all, Sean Beck came down on to the barrier and tried to get the people going but the crowd didn’t seem receptive to his efforts.

Terraform

Next to take to the stage were metal rockers Terraform, at this point it was still tumbleweed moment blowing through the spacious crowd. Everyone stood around with a pint in hand staring at the stage like statutes with the occasional head bob.

By this time you could tell that everyone just wanted to see Bam, there could of been a dancing monkey on the stage and nobody would of batted a eyelid.

Towards the end of their set the band efforts started to pay off with the odd iPhone going up in the air to big cheers and clapping at the end.

As Bam Margera was about to take to the stage the spacious room of about 50-60 fans all squashed forward ready for F**kface Unstoppable to take the stage.

First out was one of Bam’s guitarist who introduced Brandon Novak A.K.A Pill Collins, who came out singing Phil Collins hit “In The Air Tonight” in a pair of pink French knickers!

After being serenaded by Novak the rest of F**kface unstoppable made their way onto the stage with an almighty roar from the crowd. Bam cracking jokes at Novak’s expense and pointing out to everyone that Novak’s ball was hanging out before cracking more jokes about pills, probation and Novak’s wife.

Second song in Bam invited the crowd to fill the gap between the stage and barrier, a photographer’s nightmare, as this was the only time that I managed to get into the photo pit properly! As the onslaught of fans climbed over the barrier, I managed to find a space to sit on top of the barrier bar to capture the close interaction between the band and the fans.

5th song in with the fans still in the photo pit the security decided to clear everyone out of the area. Once everyone was back to where they should be Bam slowed things down a bit by dedicating a CKY song to Ryan Dunn with the fans chanting out his name.

Bam’s vocals were good throughout the show with the crowd giving good response to the bands antics and even enjoying free cans of Strongbow that we’re getting thrown into the crowd.
