Some gigs coming up


Mostly Autumn At The Robin2 Bilston.
1pm start (due to Nik Turner playing a gig there tonight).
I have never been to an indoor gig with such an early start since the Fish convention at Leamington in 2012 :wink:


Tell me about it! I missed breakfast to get to some of those acoustic sets.


Nice but £35 (£40) to stand to see them is shocking really !!??
I think i paid £8 when i first saw them on Back Street Symphony?
Sorry this relates to the Thunder ticket!!

What was that Andy? Mmmm. My arse!


Maybe next year ?
Live music is my drug :wink:


I’ve ‘won’ a ticket on the Robin2 quickie quiz to see Geoff Tate tonight, not really sure what to expect!


Should be good. He’s playing all of Queensryches ‘Operation Mindcrime’ - 30th anniversary tour.


I think I know one Queensryche song, so it’ll be a different experience for me


I got dragged to a Queensryche gig once.


Pleased your goin, that means I won’t be on my own ! (Re - tic number) :wink:


Too tempting to miss again :wink:


Ozzy, GnR, VOLBEAT, Shinedown and Greta Van Fleet would be a great bill. The rest… meh!

Not sure I could survive three days … but put those bands on the same day and I would be happy!

Always a good day out even if it is tribute bands.


Can’t beat the tributes lol , I’m seeing the Wasp one at the Robin in March


I know many people are into the whole festival thing, but it just makes me nostalgic for the days of my only 2 visits to Donington Park…


Yes, the original ‘one day’ monsters of rock

I did my first one in '83 when Whitesnake headlined. Went to everyone up to '92 and then it went to 2 stages (and i think i stopped going then - though not too sure, it’s all a bit of a blank).

I then had a massive break before returning in 2011(???) for Prodigy / Metallica / Black Sabbath and not been back since (even though i promise myself every year that i will go back).


Greta Van Fleet @ Fillmore in Detroit - May 25

Third night added after two sold out shows and I was finally able to get a GA ticket.


Anyone going to see Def Lep in december somewhere in the UK?
