Anyone know of any that I might be interested in taking place in London 8-10 Jan (I'm down there for work)?


It’s not exactly a gig and I have no idea if this would be of interest to you, but I notice that Hadestown – the Anais Mitchell folk opera – is playing at the National Theatre on the 8th.  Normal tickets sold out ages ago (it had rave reviews), but the National always holds back some tickets for their ‘Friday Rush’ and ‘Day Ticket’ schemes.  Details here - https://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/fridayrush?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI3_uK1-HQ3wIViOJ3Ch3aTwAnEAAYASAAEgIgsvD_BwE
Enjoy your visit to the Big Smoke.
  

I've seen "Hadestown" and had mixed thoughts about it - it's a superbly staged musical & the guy who plays the Hades figure is superb, sings like Tom Waits meets Jack Lukeman,  but, IMHO, the second half is very draggy and the parts of  two young lovers at the centre of the plot are seriously underwritten.  Most of the audience (full house!) when I went, however, clearly loved it.
 
BTW, the music is nothing like the stuff Anais Mitchell did when I saw her a few years back. I wouldn't call it a "folk opera "




It does like interesting...and many thanks for the idea, but as I'm not going to be there until the afternoon, there's no chance of a ticket, sadly.

I'm going to see Guided By Voices in June.  London.  Tickets sold out in less than a minute.  Most of them probably went to touts.  I have no idea how I got lucky as I'm not that fast a typist.  Really excited though.

Didn't even know that was on. There are tickets around (I saw one at £89)...so I suspect your assertion is at least partially correct...but as the ticket sellers are the touts it all gets a bit confusing.  I'd be interested in seeing them, but I'm no way the fan, so I'm glad you got one.

They announced a second night within minutes of the first night selling out.  Someone was up to something or other, but my brain is too naïve to figure out what.

No, never.  They haven't played here in 15 years, and I don't think that I'd even heard of them 15 years ago.  I was probably too busy listening to Fairport.   Grin

Eyeing Peter Noone's Herman's Hermits at the One World Theater this Sunday night.

We caught PN's free show at the Hatch Shell in Boston in 2002, the night after a Who concert.  He's quite entertaining.  "I'm Into Something Good" is one of the great pop songs of the 1960s.

"Quite entertaining" must be the ultimate damning with faint praise.

IQ tomorrow at Bury Met. Loved the band since 1985 when I bought theirvamasing debut "Tales from the Lush attic ", for various reasons I've never caught them live. Looking forward to it immensely.

Megson at the Blue Boar in Maldon, Essex on 31 January. Never seen them live before so looking forward to seeing them. The Blue Boar is a small venue so should be interesting
