Just booked to see Big Big Train in Aylesbury in July (16th). †Haven't seen them before, so I'm already quite excited by this!

I saw Big Big Train on their tour last year.

They are even better live than in the studio. I'm sure you'll have an outstanding evening!

Rolling Stones, Sunday, May 24, 2020, at the Circuit of the Americas Super Stage in Austin!

Given that this is their second visit to Austin in history, the first being almost 14 years ago, I say with confidence and satisfaction this will be the last time for me. I mean it, it's all over now. Time is [not] on my side here, friends.


Thanks for that 👍

Off to see Inhaler at the weekend.

Decent sounding band featuring Bono's son Elijah. It's weird, I'm not overly fond of U2 but even though the apple hasn't fallen very far from the tree, I've really enjoyed all the inhaler songs I've heard so far.

Enjoy Smiley I don't care who's kid he is, a very decent sounding band, really like everything I've heard, they're playing the The Troubadour (SRO) here In May, currently trying to wangle some tix.

Young Elijah seems to be a talented fellow in his own right. The family connection can be a double edged sword, putting off as many people as it attracts. Never thought John Lennon's boys have had the acclaim their music deserves.

Not a gig, per se, but tonight: author and journalist (and son of Mia) Ronan Farrow at the Paramount Theater, Austin, Texas!

I'm not sure what to expect, but I've been very impressed with him on television and radio. He seems wise beyond his years.

Just booked for The Lark Ascending an evening retell img Richard King's book and features Vashti Bunyan, Deep Throat Choir and Westmoorland Orchestra. Vashti is doing a set from across her career, Deep Throat Choir sing a selection of material from the  Greenham Common Songbook and the Westmorland Orchestra will perform The Lark Ascending with readings from the book throughout. It's on at the St Mary's Church Ambleside on the 27th March should be interesting

Inhaler were excellent. They filled the venue and you could see them visibly reacting to the energy from the crowd, growing in stature as the gig progressed. Musicianship and stagecraft were strong and Elijah made a fine frontman. Proof positive that rock ain't dead whatever radio formatters would have you believe.

One small caveat: even for a new band, it was a short gig. Forty five minutes or thereabouts.

Hah, I'm jealous, the first time I saw U2 at Santa Monica Civic in 1981 they did I Will Follow twice; 11 O'Clock Tick Tock made me an instant convert.
I predict that here in LA, Inhaler are about to get serious airplay....fingers crossed Wink

As a birthday treat to myself today, Iíve booked a ticket to see the wonderful Cara Dillon on Thursday at the Colchester Arts Centre. Then on Sunday going to see Genesis: Visible Touch in Witham. Not a fan of tribute acts but this has sold out which is unusual for a tribute at Witham Public Hall so thought I would give it a go

I can vouch for GVT being absolutely top-notch in terms of the whole Genesis experience. The Cropredy booking committee could do a lot worse, to be honest.

Bachman - Cummings, Together Again, are touring across Canada June-August 2020. U.S. dates TBA.

This, of course, is Randy Bachman and Burton Cummings, performing the songs of The Guess Who, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, and Burton's solo hits. These guys are the pride of Canada, in the nation's musical pantheon with Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Gordon Lightfoot, and Rush.

I've seen them separately, but not until this year will I finally have the opportunity to see them live, together. Keenly awaiting U.S. dates. Highly recommend to anyone in Canada or the U.S., or willing to travel.

American Woman, No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature, No Time, These Eyes, Undun, Laughing, Takin' Care of Business, Let it Ride, Roll On Down the Highway, You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet, Hey You, Stand Tall, Break it to Them Gently, and on and on. I don't know how they're going to fit everything into the show.
