REVIEW Living Colour + Radkey LIVE 2/15/24 at Barnato Omaha (VIDEO)


My ears are still ringing and I am still buzzing from the Living Colour show I just witnessed! I caught the band on an off night from their current tour opening for Extreme. While being an opener, the band can only do a short set; and it is generally more of a "greatest hits" type of show. For the show in Omaha, Living Colour played for two hours. This was no "hits" set either (not that there's anything wrong with that). The band performed its third album, 1993's "Stain," in its entirety.

"Stain" may not have been a commercial success when it was initially released, but over time, it has become a fan favorite. Sprinkled throughout the set were covers from MC5, Sinéad O'Connor/Prince, and Grandmaster Flash. And, of course, the band did play many of its best known songs from throughout its catalog.

This was my fourth time seeing Living Colour, and probably my favorite. These guys were on fire! And Corey Glover's voice has not aged a day. Do NOT miss these guys if they play in your town (especially if it's a headline set).
