As an aside, it's looking likely that AC/DC are going to tour this year Smile

im very happy Smile

 

if you hear anything first keep it posted. 

 

I remember trying to get tickets a few years ago. I was in Scotland, no wi fi, no 3G. My phone never did make it through the first page of purchasing.

RE: Your most recent gig

Last night, went to see Goldfrapp.

I'll admit it was a bit of a punt, I only really knew a few of their songs but I wanted to do something on my birthday.

Oh my God. It was just brilliant. 
I think the first half dozen or so were from the new album, and it was some of the most beautiful music I've heard. Her voice is amazing. 
Music is obviously really important to everyone on this forum, I had tears in my eyes it was just so perfect. 
There was not one duff song in the se.

If ever you get the chance, you must see them. I'd go again tonight if I could.

I'm now a big fan, and it's got to be up there with the best concerts I've been to.

The support "We Were Evergreen" were really good to. Their debut album is out in May, worth a listen. They have some tracks on spotify.

Just got back from seeing Kate Rusby in concert at the Churchill in Bromley... fantastic!

What a lovely lady, talented and a sweet sense of humour.

RE: Your most recent gig

For the first time in probably 20 years I attended an "arena" gig last night,the Manchester Arena. Now normally my idea of a great gig is a small venue with 200 or so similarly aged gentlemen listening to a blues band Laughing.

 

However my wife knowing that I love and own all their studio albums, bought me 2 tickets for Elbow as a Xmas present and we went along last night.

As much as I like Elbow I was not sure how I'd enjoy the arena experience. Also, my wife knew "One Day Like This" and that's it. I'd told her repeatedly that as an Emile Sande/Rebecca Ferguson type of person,  she was not going to enjoy it. Well we've been married 30 years so what do I know?  Nothing, that's what!  Firstly she enjoyed every minute of it, not just the aforesaid show ender, and secondly  quite frankly Elbow were magnificent. What a show. 2 hours of magnificent music, great lighting, sound, and in Guy Garvey they have someone who can work a crowd. Granted it was their hometown gig, but the crowd were up from the first note.

 

Superb night,

 

Oh, and in "One Day Like This", they have the absolute perfect closing song.

RE: Your most recent gig

My next gig is next month at the Moses Gate in Bolton, Virgil and the Acceleraters. As far removed from Elbow and the Manchester Arena as it's possible to get.

Yeah, I much prefer small venues. Two or three years ago I went to see Muse at Wembley, dreadful, no atmosphere. I won't bother with big venues again, unless it's to see AC/DC :rockout:

I don't know much by Elbow, but I quite like what I've heard, especially 'that' song Smile Sounds like you had a great night....

Hiya Smile

I assume you mean the 02 in London? Isn't that a large venue? Black Sabbath eh? Nice Smile

I'm quite looking forward to seeing 'Whole Lotta Led' in June. I've seen them several times over the years. Always a great night. Highly recommended Wink

Anyone interested in seeing them, here's their gig page.
