Ask Marty if you can touch Clarence's guitar.   Smiley

FWIW.. Ah brings back memories, he certainly touched me forever, went to one of these amazing shows with RT, even though I was expecting to pay at the Box Office, Bill Graham (RIP) treated us to great seats.


 Cool

After the worst gig of the year, I actually walked out and I wasn't the only one, earlier this week, off for something loud tonight with the UK Subs. Haven't seen them since the late 70s.

Agreed. I've seen him 3 times and never been disappointed. Was it the support act?

Most defintely not, Steve was brilliant (always is). Plus I discovered Saskia Griffiths-Moore whose voice just blew me away. I have already booked her for a return visit with her full band.

Oops - Mark Knopfler's recently announced gig at ACL Live in September (!) 2019 sold out in one day, while I was looking the other way.

I'll keep it on the calendar and hope they release a few more tix right before the show.


Wow! A friend of a friend hooked me up with very good tickets for Mark Knopfler's show after it was officially sold out! As someone once wrote, good things happen to bad people.

Shame about the venue, the two gigs I've seen there, the sound has been attrocious - boomey, echoey and muddled. I'm sure it's fab for an orchestra but loud rock really hasn't worked. Maybe I've just been unlucky. but not going to waste any more money on that place.

Kraftwerk's sound was top notch last year. We were sat centrally in the stalls, about 1/3 of the way back. Maybe up in the "gods" is worse...

Think you have been unlucky. Saw Crosby, Stills & Nash there a few years ago (and they did seem happy playing with each other then too) when the 2nd half of the set was their debut album in its entirety. Sat in the stalls and the sound was excellent

Seen all sorts there, from full classical to gentle folk with Jools and The Beachboys in between, and from all seats, front stalls, side boxes, to top knee-squashing tiers. Never had any problems with sound  quality, and I'm sure our Eric and his ilk wouldn't choose it if it weren't the most amazingly intimate feeling hall.

Lucky man!  I looked at the tickets here, and they were out of my price bracket.  So I just have to hope for a Cropredy appearance!

That's good to hear, I guess I've been unlucky and once (twice) bitten and all that. So it's back on my radar as a venue.

Curse of Lono at The Soup Kitchen, Manchester tomorrow. The best new band I've heard in the last couple of years, have seen them supporting several times but this is the first as a headliner, really looking forward to this one.
