In about an hour, Sammy Hagar and "The Circle," ACL Live!

This supergroup is composed of Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony (ex-Van Halen), Jason Bonham (needs no introduction), and guitarist Vic Johnson (of the BusBoys).  

I've avoided spoilers of the setlist, but I presume I will be treated to some Van Hagar, some "I Can't Drive 55" era Hagar, and a little Led Zeppelin.  They've also released two albums of originals, so I'll have time to go to the bathroom and wander around the mezzanine.   Smiley

Not exactly folk, but I think I'll have a good time.

Apparently Gary Kemp was playing Micky Jones*'s Gibson SG for some of the show... *of Man


What kind of a crazy word is it when these two people even know of each other's existence?!?! † Shocked

Jules
I think you're totally underestimating  the Ivor Novello Award winning Mr Kemp! Apart from being a fine songwriter, he is a superb guitarist and a close friend of Nick Mason  Shocked he was delighted to have been asked to play with Saucerful of Secrets and put in a great performance. Nothing that I could see said "naff 80's pop star"!!!

I was surprised at how well this music worked in live performance, especially since it was probably unfamiliar to a large part of the (very enthusiastic) audience in Houston.

Something similar happened at Cardiff. The tw@t in front of us obscured our view with his mobile phone for most of the set, then proceeded to play his videos back at full volume when the band were bantering between songs  Angry mainly to cries of WTF from those around him. And when the Security man asked him to turn it off he had a mouthful of abuse. I really don't understand some people  Undecided

I just don't get it, it makes me feel like I am getting old. I really can't understand why you would rather capture that special moment in a concert rather than being part of it, e.g. Filming meet on the ledge at cropredy, filming Vincent black lightning at a Richard Thompson concert, smoke on the water, paranoid. I would rather be there.

To be fair, the person wasnít even recording the gig. Genuinely, and even more inexplicably, he made a phone call.  Shocked

Show of Hands at the Cutty Sark.  The performance space underneath the ship (boat?) makes a really nice venue.  I saw ĎThe Pirates of Penzanceí there a few weeks ago Ė I liked the idea of seeing it in a nautical setting Ė and it works just as well with theatre.

Trying to decide whether I can be fussed to drag myself over to Brighton to see The Dovetail trio this evening. Would like to see them but brighton on a Bank Holiday has all sorts of disadvantages, not least of transport o get there and back.

Otherwise my next gig (sort of) will be Tubular Bells for Two on Friday. More of a show than a gig I think and I have no real idea what to expect but it has been highly acclaimed by critics and I am looking forward to it.

Then it is Otway & Barrett's farewell tour on Saturday which should be a lot of fun.

I saw "Tubular Bells for Two" at the Edinburgh Festival a few years ago. It was terrific - enjoy!
