Odd situation, but unexpectedly I have 2 spare tickets for Martyn Joseph at the Musician in Leicester on Monday. It was planned as 2 shows, and I bought for both, now it’s a single show and I have 2 I don’t need. Happy to give to anyone who would like to go.

King Crimson - HEB Center at Cedar Park, Texas, August 31, 2021!

Tix on sale Thursday. I don't know if any Cedar Park native has even heard of King Crimson, but I suspect folks from Austin (CP's immediate neighbor-to-the-south) will fill it to the rafters.

Fourth row tickets procured. A fond memory - Jude weighed in on my open question to the forum whether I should buy a ticket to see KC for the first time a few years ago. Something to the effect that I "must" go. She was absolutely right!

Roger Taylor, playing the old Boscombe Academy in October. I’ve got a soft spot for Rog’s solo records, especially Strange Frontier. Couldn’t resist seeing a rock legend 3 miles down the road from my house!

When it rains, it pours.

Allegedly retired, vax-questioning guitar slinger Eric Clapton has announced a date at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas on September 15.

When I last saw him at the L.A. Forum in Inglewood some years back, I truly believed it would be the last time. I will open my wallet for him once more. Fun fact: Eric was my first concert at the Erwin Center, on the Money and Cigarettes tour way back on February 18, 1983.

So would I. Last time I saw him he was dire. The solo on Badge was done by a guy on a keyboard, whilst Clappedout just stood and watched him. His band were excellent but he was just going thru the motions. IMHO of course!

I am definitely saving "some" of my money. I logged in for so-called "Platinum" tickets yesterday, and was offered two tickets in the second row for about $600 each. No thanks. I will log in again momentarily to see what "ordinary" tickets are available.

Rheingans Sisters at More Music in Morecambe tomorrow. Sadly MrsB has to give it a miss as she was contacted by Track and Trace yesterday and is self-isolating until Wednesday. She volunteers at one of the museums in town and after being in one day last weekend she's been told that someone has tested positive.

Don't think we'll be booking for any more gigs until the Covid numbers start going down here in Lancs. It'll be interesting to see how many punters are there tomorrow.  Sad

But I'm looking forward to it. Not seen the Sisters before.

Saw them just before lockdown with my sister at that venue, they are hugely talented musicians and the recent songs they have produced have been excellent, they seem to get better with each album. There influences vary and make for interesting arrangements, which keep the attention and constantly surprise and the harmonies of the sisters are brilliant. I saw Rowan solo in a local village hall last week with an audience of under 20, she performed Dispatches on the Red Dress, which I will hopefully see for the third time in November in Leeds, and the crowd size in no way diminish the quality of the perfomance. There is such innovation and diversity in the folk scene at the moment and though some of it may seem a bit bit intertwined, with people like Lady Maisery, and the furrow collective and remnants of bellowhead, none of them rest on past glories and seem to develop in so many new and interesting ways, and covid may have dampened spirits, and damaged careers, but not stopped so much great stuff being produced. I love more music and it's the ideal venue for a small crowd. Hope you enjoy.

Off to the Ely Festival on Sunday.  The clash with the footie is slightly annoying, but live music has got to take precedence!

Finally rescheduled for late November
The Rolling Stones at the Circuit of the Americas!

We’ve been holding onto our tickets since the original date was postponed in February last year.

Elton John in June next year. No,  im not going, but I was sufficient ly interested to log onto the ticket site about 3 hours after they went on sale.  The 50 quid ones, which were the cheapest, plus booking fee, were all gone.  I'm only slightly disappointed as I only really like his early albums and there's a bit of nostalgia for me about them. The concert is in a large venue so I doubt the paupers' seats would have allowed much of a view.

I slightly upgraded my Rolling Stones tickets. Ticketmaster finally offered to refund all purchases from the original sale, once the rescheduled date was announced. I returned my original tickets for a full refund and immediately bought two aisle seats in the same section for a bit less than I paid two years ago.  Smiley

Iain Matthews and Andy Roberts are playing at the Half Moon on August 12th.  Part of a short UK tour to promote their latest album on Angel Air Records (a live concert from 1991)

Charlie's not good tonight.  Very disappointing.  Somewhat over dramatically I'm kind of in the "No Charlie, no Stones" camp myself... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/articles/czxde05dzygo

This is quite a kick in the solar plexus. Instead of the Rolling Stones, we're going to see the X-Pensive Winos, featuring special guests Mick Jagger and Ronnie Wood. Sad

I saw them back in around 1990 when Bill was still in the band. Rather lost interest in the Stones after he left.

But I saw him with his Rhythm Kings in a small venue several years later and that was a great gig. Never seen anyone make playing the bass guitar look so effortless.
