Paul Weller…

It wasn’t the best gig I’ve been to….

Don't think Weller is an outdoor gig sort of artist.  Plus if he can't be ars*d on the day he can go through the motions a bit.

Seen him twice in last year and Octagon was excellent and Manchester Apollo a bit lacklustre.

It started very slowly, I’ll be honest. But got going eventually.

Sounds like the Manchester gig.  Probably the same setlist and if the case a few album tracks and more obscure tunes in first hour.  Good if you are a real fan but if not then a struggle.

Saw your pics on FB - didn't look a huge crowd from that or indeed this. Could be misleading of course but I do wonder if there are now too many events compared to demand 

Any consolation there seems to have been a lot of negativity about the Guns N roses gigs at the Tottingham stadium 

Funniest bit round here is that a National Trust place near Aylesbury as had a few gigs on, Tears for Fears tonight at 75 quid a pop (no thanks) but a riot was nearly caused at a Michael Bubble concert the other night as the organisation was appalling

Saturday night was Elbow at the Scarborough open air theatre. Not a bad venue despite the Ticket master app not working and having to go to the box office to get the tickets. Certainly helped the sun was shining, must be a different vibe with a sea fret or it pissing it down. 

Most of the tickets are in the seats which I am not really used to, but suited this crowd. Elbow did what Elbow do, singalong stuff and Guy Garvey is a good laugh.

Magic Numbers were the support for this one. Played their "hits" so they were alright.

Strange gig though, well perhaps this is the normal and the gigs I usually go to are the outliers.

It was a good atmosphere in the end but it was a nice night out for a lot of folk. The music being the backdrop. Mrs MK demanding to have a gig where she can get in the moshpit again.

You need to get back to smaller indoor gigs for the mosh pits.  Been in loads to my lads amazement in last year. 

Know what you mean about the music being a back drop.  Been to some gigs with people chatting and spending more time going to the bar.  Its generally the older concert goers rather than the young uns.

Is my preference - this venue was just on the tick list to do and Elbow were the safe choice for us 

Could be worse Simply Red are on soon 🤢

I know it's not exactly a "gig", but Mrs Eppers and I went to London to see "Tina" at the Aldwych theatre last weekend, it was fantastic, the story was close to the truth (if the recent documentary was the truth), and the 3 girls who played Tina Turner were great singers with such powerful voices.

I would recommend if anyone is thinking of going.

Scarborough open air theatre has always had the feeling of it being like watching a band play at the Lyceum. It's ok for shows like Michael Ball. 

I've been to a few last night of the proms type shows there and found you need a yard or two of ale to make it enjoyable

Just back from Richard Hawley at The Leadmill.

Just brilliant.

And his final words of the night? Up the Owls.

i was there too.  Not too keen on the Leadmill when its that packed, especially when you have 2 6foot 6 pissheads pogoing next to you.

But RH was excellent, as always. Thought Pete McKee brought something to the party too

Bit of a double edged sword for me. Love the fact that it’s so busy in one respect, but it can make it a less than perfect experience.

Mrs Cheat’s only 4ft 10’ or so, and usually doesn’t see much at standing gigs. She had a nice view till a 6ft odd bloke stood right in front of her about five minutes before RH came on.

My Wife is like a tall person magnet when at gigs so feel your pain.

In a year of catching up after covid and massively eclectic music, we went to see Russell Watson on Saturday at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. What a voice that man has! Incredible.  A mix of West End music and arias from his early albums.

It was a picnic gig with a nice bottle of Cremant and a picnic part of Mrs Eppers Christmas present from last year.

What were From the Jam like ?  Last time I saw them they were below par compared to previous.  Wondered if time was catching up with Bruce.

Was still only Tyber fronting the Dialers or did Si make an appearance? There were rumours he was joining this tour but I can't find any confirmation. 

They play Nottingham late September and Sheffield in November and was thinking of going.

TBH Ty I'm not sure it was the first time I had seen them. I thought they were great though. Really enjoyed them and Death of guitar pop.

I came across them by accident on YouTube ages ago when they uploaded busking vids they'd done. Quality band but never seen them live. Just got tickets for the Rock City gig

I've booked to see these next Autumn in Manchester. Sort of me putting two fingers up to all the shit going on - Putin, widespread financial misery, Covid & other fun diseases and world changing weather - and saying I'll still be here and carrying on, if it's owt to do with me.    Two 'Southern Laydees with music coming out of every pore: blues, rock n roll, roots, Americana, hints of bluegrass and country. All with instrumental dexterity and am amazing voice when she lets rip with it. Talented sisters. Can't wait.
