After much umming and ahhing I finally bought a ticket to see Al Stewart in Basingstoke tomorrow night.  From the videos going round on FB, it looks like he's doing some unusual numbers on this tour, and also some new songs.  He's playing with an electric band too, which will be different from the last few concerts I've seen which have been mainly acoustic.


We're seeing him tonight, really looking forward to it. You're lucky there were tickets, ours sold out weeks ago.

Disappointingly (except that it meant I was able to get a good seat at the last minute), Basingstoke was only half full.  Hope you had a good night.

Gently he has risen from interesting to essential for me. Such a great writer and truly great musician. Off now to check if there is a date near me

What a shame you couldn’t go David. It was packed to the rafters, I’m sure they could have resold it. And now I feel bad about commenting on it in “Recent gigs”...!

Going to see Rowan Rheingans : Dispatches on the Red Dress at the Nuffield Theatre at Lancaster University tonight 8th of November 2019 20:00pm, was going to cycle from Lancaster Station but have decided to walk, could be interesting catching the last train back to Barrow after it finishes. The show has got some brilliant reviews and after seeing the Rheingans Sisters at More Music at Morecambe for the first time a short while ago, I think it will be brilliant.

Steve Hackett with his band featuring Nad Sylvan doing the whole of Selling England by the Pound, and some of his solo work, tomorrow at St David's Hall in Cardiff. It's getting rave reviews so should be fantastic!  Cheesy  Cheesy

I shall be going The Hexagon gig too.

It is the longest I've ever held tickets for a concert - tickets were sent to me on 8th October 2018. Over 400 days.

(However that record is already set to be broken. I have tickets to see This Is The Kit at the RAH in April … 2021!  Shocked )

Cheers

Tonight, future Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famers The Doobie Brothers, at ACL Live!

This is a benefit concert for the Darrell K. Royal Alzheimer's Research Fund, which means the floor will be populated with disinterested spectators wearing tuxedos, seated at banquet tables. It also means a truncated concert, probably about 1 hour and 15 minutes. These folks have to get back to their limousines before they turn back into pumpkins.

We peons (a.k.a., true Doobie Brothers fans) will be rocking out in the balcony.  

Feeling like a class warrior today! Smiley

Likewise - the first time I have ever bought tickets over a year before the concert.  And still ended up somewhere near the back!

Steve Hackett at the Phil tonight doing Selling England.  I'm in two minds about a band playing a whole album,  takes away the excitement of what's next, but you can't really just play Cinema Show on it's own either

It's amazing and they do it extremely well. I can almost guarantee you'll thoroughly enjoy it!  Cheesy

Is that a "or your money back guarantee", Bridget?  Grin
