Can someone upvote this please? I just went to upvote it to show what an incredible and magnanimous person I am after yesterday's raging Idles dispute - but I exactly hit down and now it won't let me reverse it. I promise, I'm not (quite) that petty!

Can't you just hit the little x on the heart to remove it?

Would have loved Lister to have been supporting Frank at the Brighton gig. Those two on the same bill would have been amazing.

At last after no gig since December 2019 it was Chic in Liverpool last night. Under the shadow of the Liver Buildings and it was great. Right up at the front as well with loads of room.

Tea Street Band supporting The Christians tonight in Neston and back down the Pier Head in Liverpool on Saturday for Cream Classical.

I am 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.

Cheating a bit as not my first gig, but saw Idles in Brighton tonight.

Well I'm no idles connoisseur by any stretch, but I thought they were absolutely fantastic tonight. I wasnt the biggest fan of Ultra Mono, but tracks like Mr Motivator and Grounds sounded so much better live. Couple from Brutalism, and the usual suspect tracks like Danny Nedelko, Perm, Samaritans and Colossus from Joy.

I didn't see them at Glastonbury, but saw them on that tour and I think this was just as good. @gigpusherI reckon you should go for it pal, I had an absolute blast tonight.

Going to see them at the Eden Project tomorrow night, can't wait! Looking forward to hearing Ultra Mono tracks played live too.  And who doesn't love a good mosh pit?!

Chester Pride tomorrow followed by scouse favourites Oranj Son in Wrexham in the evening. Liverpool, North Wales, Chester….. anyone of ‘a certain age’ might have memories of The Jam at Deeside Leisure Centre (“Battle of the Ice Rink” as the local press reported it) flooding back to them! I feel your pain, and recall my own!

Not first gig back for me but loved Blossoms at Manchester Arena tonight - it was my brother's first gig back though. Got the tickets for him at Christmas 2019 as they're his favourite band (and one of mine too) 

I first saw them at Gorilla in 2015 and was convinced they'd be massive and it was like a proud parent moment to see them play the Arena. Saw them do Ritz, Albert Hall x2, Castlefield Bowl, Apollo and various support slots including the cricket ground so good to see them complete the set. 

Now it's Sam Fender/Fontaines/Beabadoobee in Newcastle tomorrow, then kaiser chiefs and razorlight Wednesday, courteeners Saturday and Snow Patrol Sunday. Fair to say I'll be satisfied then whatever happens for the rest of the year

Cracking gig on Friday in a marquee for The Tea Street Band and The Christians.

Great day yesterday at Cream Classical.

Just great chatting shit and having a laugh with strangers and most of all I lost myself in music for 3 days.

Never will that be taken for granted again. 

Loads coming up now into next year, leading up to the big one and Glastonbury 2022.

Had Low Island at Moth Club on Friday - had gone to see them at G2019 bvut they had tech issues so was good to see them on top form. Cracking venue too.

Then had Declan McKenna on Saturday at Brixton and reckon I was the oldest one there. Might be a weird complaint but I wish he would play the guitar less? On the tracks where he was just singing he was great and charismatic, but as soon as he picked up a guitar he had to focus and all the energy was lost. Side note as well - the kids really do love PinkPantheress don't they - got a pretty huge singalong during the gap after alfie fucked off (and surprisingly so did American Boy)

Had a couple of pints in Neston before the gig. Luckily Mrs Fay picked us up to take us back over the water saving a hefty cab fare.

A gig in Neston?? Wow that's a new one to me...where did you go for a drink?

Fontaines were incredible at This is Tomorrow. I cant believe how good they are live, wasn't expecting that at all - completely blown away 

Sam Fender brilliant also - loving new single Get You Down and was great to finally hear The Borders live. Felt like the gig was encroaching on the night out of most of the crowd near me though...

First gig back for me was Genesis in Birmingham on Monday. Sad to see Phil in ill health; I’ve never been a fan of his solo career but he was, and still is, a great entertainer. Fantastic show, despite the reliance on 80’s/90’s hits - although there was a fair bit of 70’s/80’s prog too. Far better than I was expecting.
