Some gigs coming up


#926

I’ve taken the plunge (BCC), I saw them the first time round and they were fantastic, I know I’d regret it when the gig arrives, if I hadn’t been there :roll_eyes:
You only live once !!! Make the most of it :wink:


#927

You reckon that they won’t have fallen out by January then?


#928

With Mr Ego Hughes who knows ? :wink::joy:


#929

Stereophonics - Caird Hall Dundee 22nd August
The Script - Usher Hall Edinburgh 29th August


#930

They’re playing at Warrington Parr Hall, early November. Just been looking on the website, but nothing takes my fancy.


#931

What was the gig like you went to the other week Paul ?


#932

Excellent Andy!:+1: Thoroughly enjoyed it. Played all the obligatory Cockney Rebel stuff I wanted to hear. Just waiting on news of the DVD release. - Only downside I would say, is that I just can’t get used to seated gigs!


#933

I know I much prefer to stand, and that’s the only reason I will do arena gigs from now on, so you can get as close as you like. If it’s all seating I’m not gonna bother.


#934

I don’t mind seating on laid-back acoustic gigs, but not full-on electric.


#935

Good to see Anathema have introduced video technology to the set.
When I was lucky enough to meet Vincent earlier in the year, he said the band we’re hoping to take this direction in future shows, especially to tell the story behind the Optimist. :+1::wink:


#936

WV1 Festival in Wolverhampton tomorrow, just tribute bands, but always a good day out with friends and hopefully the rain will stay away !!?
:beers::guitar::metal::wink:


#937

Slipknowt :laughing:


#938

Not as good as the Reet Hot Chilipeppers :joy::wink:


#939

Whole Lotta DC from WV1 Fest looked and sounded like the real thing .
Great day out with friends, plenty of beer and some good tribute bands - free admission just a £3.95 booking fee . :wink::+1::beers::guitar:


#940

You can’t knock the musicianship of many of these tribute bands, whatever you may think about their relevance. I’ve come across a number on YouTube that I thought sounded amazing. I think there’s a Genesis tribute from possibly Argentina called Genetics. They’re really good at what they do. Let’s face it, it’s the only way we’re going to hear some of this music played live.


#941

probably but the copy will never be better as the original…

:sunglasses:


#942

True, but the original doesn’t perform in a live capacity anymore.


#943

Will sus the venue for the Fish gig in December as I’ve never been before :wink:
