    October Drift

    We made a point to get there for the Friday opening gig. Excellent again.

    Gig Ticket Prices

    To be fair to Pearl Jam they cost £70+fees and for that you can get in front of stage unlike the Adele day where you would have to pay £275 for golden circle for the equivalent area so not really the same. Christ! I just looked at the Adele BST map just for fun and one of the gold areas isn't even in front of stage! Thats split between one other gold area and the diamond tickets that are £380! That's mad!
  7. Thank God I decided to book a place on a bus that takes me directly to and from the Guns'n'Roses gig. The trains and tube will be a nightmare! 😄
  8. Saw this last year. It's most enjoyable 🙂

    2021 New Music

    The Self Esteem album is a belter! So good to have an album that matches how good they are live.
  10. Yep, it crops up on "angry people in newspapers" pretty much every week. Why they chose there I have no idea 😕
  11. Saw Orla Gartland at the Electric Ballroom in Camden on Friday who was excellent. I think I was possibly the oldest one in the room but the bonus of a lot of the audience being both young and female meant many were quite short so I had a decent view for the entire gig 😄 Their van was broken into the following day and many of their instruments and equipment stolen which obviously sucks so putting this here too https://www.clashmusic.com/news/orla-gartlands-van-broken-into-equipment-stolen on the vaguest offchance it helps them get something back.
  12. Really good i'm afraid. They were always on a list of bands i'd wanted to see at some point but never did so when the small venue gigs came up (and were far cheaper than the Hyde Parks gigs) I thought sod it and went for it. The sound was excellent too. The 2 hours queuing outside and then another 2 hours standing in the venue waiting for them to come on was not so good, and neither was the 100 mile drive home afterwards 😄 Got a half decent spot though at least..
  13. Since lockdown ended i've been to... Sigrid - London Lafayette (support who was brought in to replace the original support last minute was really good too but can't for the life of me remember her name!) Mew - London Royal Festival Hall Beabadoobee - Cambridge Junction Tom Jones - Cambridge Junction Duran Duran - Birmingham O2 Academy Damon Albarn - London Shakespeare Theatre Pip Blom - Cambridge Portland Arms October Drift (with Junodef supporting) - Cambridge Portland Arms Lanterns on the Lake (last night with Wyldest supporting) - Cambridge Storeys Field and all have been excellent with the crowds in the main being excellent too. Only another 12 gigs before Christmas to go 😄
  14. Yeah, we have gone for the refund as can't really do midweek and now no Garbage 😞
  15. WTF?! I have tickets to Blondie in Brighton and this is the first i've heard of this! Where have Garbage gone too?
  16. Probably a bit pointless just banging out a list but... Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Phoebe Bridgers, Sharon Van Etten, Halsey, Django Django, Drug Store Romeos, Ist Ist, Cherry Glazerr, Cigarettes after sex, Gurr, Middle Kids, Soccer Mommy, Teleman, White Flowers will do 😄

    October Drift

    Yep, I saw them last night in Cambridge and they were excellent. Really liked Junodef who were supporting too.
  18. Yeah, sound was crap via Sky Arts. So much so I gave up watching.

    First Gig Back

    I've done a number of gigs over the last 4 weeks or so and one thing I have really enjoyed about them is seeing people each time so excited for their first gigs again. This week was Beabadoobee on Monday, Tom Jones on Tuesday, and Duran Duran on Wednesday so rather different ages ranges for them really, and it was the same for all of them.

    2022 Headliners

    Well at least the Isle of Wight festival isn't a massive p.i.t.a. to get to and back from....oh... 😄

    2022 Headliners

    Yeah, amended the post after noticing that 🙂 Sorry all.
  22. Elton John gigs being rescheduled again.

    2022 Headliners

    Thats maybe Elton John out then... (edited again - although maybe not if he is continuing his US tour in 2022. Sorry, as you were! 😄)
  24. I was vaguely interested until I saw it was a seated gig (and £80 for a floor ticket)
