Concert Review

The Pretty Reckless Put on a Phenomenal Live Concert at the Barrowland Ballroom

Barrowland Ballroom Glasgow 26th October 2022

Rock ‘n’ Roll, what a way to die! The Pretty Reckless could make you go out on a high and the crowd in Glasgow showed they weren’t ready to lie down just yet as the sold-out audience proved they were a force to be reckoned with.

The meteoric rise of Taylor Momsen has seen her career go from child model to actress and hardened rock star. From its first inception, The Pretty Reckless has been on a mission to bring its hard-hitting melodic alternative rock to the masses. The Barrowland Ballroom was sold out and the crowd was hungry for some rock ‘n’ roll and they got it!

The stripped-back classic rock band lineup provides the perfect backdrop for Momsen. She brings more than just looks to the band and her songwriting is evidence enough. The band’s back catalogue proves they have strength in depth with an abundance of quality songs to choose from.

The music world has its fair share of famous frontwomen, but only the most talented can truly command an audience with just her voice and a microphone and at the Barrowland Ballroom in Glasgow, Scotland, The Pretty Reckless’ frontwoman Taylor Momsen proved that she’s one of those special singers when she performed with the rest of her band to a sold-out crowd of 2,000 fans at this historic venue.

It’s been eight years since we’ve seen The Pretty Reckless live in concert, but finally, after waiting for what seemed like an eternity, Taylor Momsen and company are back. Playing to a sold-out crowd of eager fans who had waited patiently for the past decade to hear them again, The Pretty Reckless put on an unforgettable show.

“Fucked up World” is another great song with powerful lyrics. It’s about how nothing is perfect, but there are still good moments in life that should not be overlooked. So what you’re saying is we gotta get through this fucking world together? Taylor exclaims, which gets a cheer from the crowd.
