Gigs


Recommended Posts

Stick your recent gigs detail in here, or any that you are going to.

 

After having tickets for nearly 3 years, we went to see Texas a month ago. Charlene Spiteri was very good, AND very funny, at times it was like watching a comedian. The gig was at the Bonus Arena in Hull, not a bad arena, all seating, we were about 6 rows back, so decent seats. Roadworks around there were a nightmare!!

Anyway, they played their first album first in an accoustic set, all sat very close togehter, then opened up the arena and played all their other songs. First gig since lockdown, I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would.

 

Comiong up, Killers (had tickets for over 3 years), Stone Valley festival, including Boomtown Rats, Stranglers, Stiff Little Fingers, Toyah, Ruts, From the Jam, Bad Manners, Sham 69, The Primatives. Then Crowded House at Scarborough.

Took young un to see KSI at O2 academy a month or so back, thought i'd hate it but surprisingly it was OK, he loved it though which was the main thing. I got out of the Stormzy gig for work the other, his mum took him

Don;t really get to many nowadays but should Richard Ashcroft do another locally in the future then i'll be there, really good live, saw him at Donny Dome, maybe 5 or 6 years ago. Also saw The Verve in Nottingham about 10 years ago and that was class too

That'll be a good one, the BC Camplight...might go to that if tix left.....great venue as well!

It’s a new venue for me as is the Leeds one - that’s at Brudenell Social Club, which also sounds like it’s a good venue from what I’ve read about it.

Persuaded Mrs Cheat to go to BC Camplight (she was “who?”) as the Joshua Radin one is mainly her choice - don’t mind him myself though to be fair.

The Brud is a cracking venue. First time I went was to watch my mate's band. They reformed for the club's anniversary year and sold out within a day. Absolute banging night and I don't even really like their music. 

Good food as well. They do Pieminister pies.

Went to see Crowded House last night at the Aware Theatre in Sydney's Darling Harbour.They played  lot of numbers from their first two albums which I think were their best ,a really good night  enjoyed it and nice to be back in a packed arena listening to live music.

First gig of the weekend last night with Paul Weller in Manchester.  28 track setlist and didn't disappoint but not as good as at The Octogen last year. 

What really wound me up yet again was the number of people there chatting constantly.  What is it with these people. 

Anyway on to the Sheds in Birdwell tonight.

Was Steve Craddock with him?

I went to a 6 Music event in Manchester in 2009, it was a free event and we went to see Placebo on the Friday night at the International....there were about 250 people in a fairly large venue and nearly all of em just talked throughout....Brian Molko sulked a bit and the band walked off 3 songs in to the set....it was being recorded as well!

Yes Matt, Craddock was part of the band, as was Andy Crofts and also Steve Pilgrim who has some decent stuff of his own. 

Musically, flawless and brilliant about from the fookwits either talking or being more bothered about getting their 2 Pint Pots of Lager for 13 quid. 

Be much more civilised in Birdwell tonight 😂

Just polished off a steak and blue cheese pie, mash and mushy peas. Very nice.

Get yersen off.  Better than pulling your hair out when Daz decides to play Shadipo at Right Wing Back and Paterson and Kamberi up front to build up their volume for potential Play Off games.

Well the bottle and half of wine that was threatenin' to get drunk got smashed in those last 20mins....how was the gig Matt?

My favourite amateur band. Good musicians and some lovely vocalists 😍

They are based in Oz, so I'm unlikely to get to see her them, so I watch them on You Tube. They do cover versions of popular pop songs, but they do them well.

A couple of links to their practice sessions.

Yeah, he's had a few session musicians that have gone into "bigger" things, Alan White of Oasis was another and there was a rhythm guitarist that became famous......so famous I've forgotten his name ...! 😁
