Wow...weren't they in the Academy last time they played?  I really like Gorilla.

Club Academy last time. Thought Gorilla might be a bit big for them in comparison but Sid reckons the ticket sales have been so good they'll be back before the end of the year for some more dates, Octoberish.

The Hoople are my next gig. I am doing the Friday night in London and then have Ian McNabb the following night back in Worthing.

According to the Grauniad's gig guide last Saturday, there's a "one-off" drum legends show this Friday at the Brighton Dome...

Pete York, Herman from the Scorpions and... GINGER BAKER - who I thought had retired permanently from drumming - certainly live performance - due to ill health!!

Seems it's not sold out - I'm gutted I can't make it - probably my last chance to see Ginger play live - then again, if his drumming capabilities have (understandably) declined, it would be a bit sad to see.

We saw Ginger in Austin on his last U.S. visit, just a couple of years back. His skills were impeccable, although his health was clearly not. I hope some Talkawhilers can make it to the Brighton Dome and I hope they experience him as we did.

Just booked to see Steve Hackett in Birmingham in November. Thought I'd have no trouble getting a ticket but it's about 98% sold out already. This will be my first gig since Cropredy 2017 and I hadn't quite realised how much ticket prices were creeping up..... Roll Eyes

Ludicrously excited about Dr Strangely Strange at Cafe Oto tomorrow pm.  I do wish it didn't mean 9 hours in the bloody car and wasn't in London, but, hey ho....

They have been on sale a while; I got a ticket for Reading when they were announced. It's the first time I have held a ticket for a gig that was more than a year away. I am sure I will forget to go.

I have a ticket for that Reading concert too, and likewise have never bought a ticket over a year in advance.  I'm relying on my calendar and the friends I'm going with to make sure I don't miss it!

Do you use Outlook, or have a calendar on your phone? If so, add a reminder for a few days before the gig

My entire life is in Outlook - Iíve no idea how Iíd cope without it!!!  Undecided Grin

I did that last year with a sort of gig - the League Of Gentlemen. I haven't got a ticket for Steve yet...I've been to three gigs this week, and there's Mott next week, and it's festival tix buying season....bam and dlast.

Just purchased - Squeeze Songbook Tour, September 17, 2019, at the Paramount in Austin.

The Paramount may not be an ideal venue for Squeeze.  At Cropredy, and at the 2008 Squeeze show at La Zona Rosa here in Austin, there was lots of joyful bopping throughout the show.  You can't bop in the fixed chairs at the Paramount...

His band were pretty good, but his voice was obviously suffering and he had a persistent cough. Very laid back and no foot-stompers.

It will be interesting to see if this band develops enough to produce an album.

I particularly enjoyed Matt Worley's singing. I admit I was waiting for a foot-stomper, or a bit of "Hey, hey Mama, said the way you move...."!!  Smiley but I enjoyed the evening. The support were very good.

I wasn't moved to applaud for the sound man tho - he needs to get his act together  Huh
