I did go, and what a great show it was!!!! Great performance, crowd interaction, good setlist with a couple surprises (loved that they played ''Let Me Lay My Love On You'' including Johnny surfing through the crowd on a gear box with wheels during the outro solo). These guys have so much energy and are just downright cool, likeable dudes. I'd recommend everyone go see them if they have the chance, I certainly will again

Only downside was being stuck in Birmingham for an additional 2 days because of the snow :( but made it back home now

Yaaay, glad you enjoyed it (and made it)!

How on earth could you be sorry to have an extra 2 days in Brum though? You could have come out to the home of Heavy Metal in the Black Country and gone sledging with us in Stourbridge  :headbanger:

Got Robbie Williams concert tickets today.

@ A Day On The Green

Saw him once before and it was the 3rd best concert I've ever seen.
Hope this one lives up to my hype.

Saw Saliva last night in Melbourne.

Great show - recommend it to anyone in a state they are yet to get to over the next few days.

$80 on the door was a bit steep, particularly as they played for only an hour.

Also, there was a genuine call for an encore which was ignored.
These days all encores are pretty much planned, with the best songs being saved for them.
Everyone expects the m to come back out so there is not chant or anything.

Last night they played their 2 biggest hits last, everyone knew that was the end, but they wanted more, and chanted for more.
A genuine call for more music and it didn't happen which was sad.

But still it was a good show. I even got in the mosh pit for a while :)

Not even being close to being a big enough band to ask $80 at the door or in advance!  $38 2 years in a row to see Y&T for over a 2(TWO) hour show!

Yeah, but I accept that it's a bit different in getting all the way over here.

Online tickets were $69 or 4 for $220.
Didn't get them as I was waiting for my kids to decide if they wanted to go and they bailed at the last minute.

The venue was only half full, which was surprising. Maybe ticket cost had something to do with that. Also it was a Thursday night.
You'd think that given the show hadn't sold very well and that the venue was smack bang in the middle of the city they'd try and drag people in with cheap tix.,

I looked up their set lists and they don't change really much at all, and they never seem to play longer than an hour.

Regardless, I'm happy to pay, but you just want value for money. No reason they couldn't play a few more songs.

Have Robbie Williams next week.
Normally his shows sell out pretty fast, but this is at a winery and also on a Thurs night so tix still available.

They are $130.
Touring bands ain't cheap in Australia....

Tour will see Aussie fanthers treated to a whole evening’s worth of Panther pandemonium, with the band’s first set comprised of all your fave OG tunes like ‘The Shocker’, ‘Community Property’ and ‘Death To All But Metal’ and the second set featuring a stack of classic rock n’ roll covers.

So get ready for a double dose of ’80s-inspired riffage, blistering musicianship and dick jokes, kiddies. Catch all the tour dates and ticket details, below.

Catalano will be opening for Cruel Intentions in Stockholm on July 13, can't miss this opportunity. Never had a chance to see De La Cruz cause they only played in Australia and this will be the first Catalano show in Europe (maybe ever, don't recall them playing shows in Australia or New Zealand as it was more of a ''solo project'' until not so long ago)

I went to see Billy Idol in Gävle, Sweden on the 25th. I had a blast. I thought the setlist was excellent. For the casual listener, maybe it was a long wait for the hits, but if you had made just a little effort to listen to his back catalogue, you would have appreciated the whole gig. I think he has a treasure trove of songs, beyond the famous hits. 

The setlist was:

  1.  
  2. Encore:
I would've loved Cradle of Love in there and John Wayne, Speed, Whiskey and Pills etc etc, but if I were to have my way, the gig would have been 30 songs long.
A special mention goes to Steve Stevens. What an incredible guitar player.

Really?
I saw them here in probably the late 80's
Not sure if they've been back since.
Might be worth a look.
I'd want to see a setlist first as they are a band who traditionally plays the songs I like less and not the ones I like more.

I actually got hit by a bible.

And I didn't get to keep it either.

And my friend got a pick.

Support acts are Shiraz Lane and One Desire, so it should be a tremendous night 🙂

Very nice....Be sure to share your thoughts on the show!

I'd absolutely love to see that show.  I toyed with the idea of even travelling to Europe from the USA to catch one but the wife promptly shot it down.  I feel lucky to have seen H.e.a.t a couple times in Chicago though.....Easily among my favorite concerts ever.  The energy in their shows makes me feel like I'm 30 years younger :)  And such good guys to talk to if you get the chance.....Very humble and appreciative from everything I saw.

And to see Shiraz Lane and OD too....Wow, that'll be amazing.

    • Joe  Satriani Live In San Francisco.
    • Awesome! Thanks! I also have some demos of Dennis Cameron from *after* Angelica that he was working on that never saw the light of day (in case anyone would be interested).
    • Here you go. Angelica's demos with Andy Lyon on vocals: https://we.tl/t-vc17XGXORd
    • only a man has one of the greatest intros to a rock song ever 
    • from various sources: "Right Turn" is the new album from singer / songwriter DANIEL TRIGGER, an indie artist who has been releasing several records since 2005, plus albums under the Trigger name. We have listened to some of them but his overall heavy rock style never convinced us. However, things are changing with "Right Turn". I can see why the album will be released by MelodicRock Records soon; this material is inspired by the classic Melodic Rock sound from the '80s.

      One thing that will surprise the listener is that Daniel hails from the Midlands in the UK and not the US as the music on here would suggest. Bringing to mind Mitch Malloy (in his early years), Johnny Lima and late '80s Bon Jovi, Daniel Trigger knows his way around a melodic tune and chorus.

      Lyrically he harks back to the glory days of melodic rock on ‘Days Gone By’. ‘Drive’ is a tune made for just that – top down on the car (or windows for most of us) with this melodic rock gem blasting out on the speakers. There's a clear Malloy feeling in the classy melodic rock pattern of 'Running Into The Wind', with its rip roaring piano riff including acoustic guitar into the mix but used as 'electric' riffage.

      Midtempo 'Hold Back The Night' brings to mind Bon Jovi's New Jersey era, really 'American' in its delivery, 'Heavy Heart' has a catchy, pure '80s melodic rock chorus, while we have a classic rock vibe on the fun ‘Rock N Roll Party’. The only ballad here, ‘There In Your Heart’, bring to mind Jon Bon Jovi solo album, or better Johnny Lima, as Trigger's voice is very similar to them.   If you have listened to some of Daniel Trigger previous albums, forget 'em, he has 'turned' timeless melodic rock here on the properly titled "Right Turn". There's sweet melodious vocals, catchy choruses, a warm production, and while Daniel performs all instruments, he was cleverly enough to bring a very good guitar player in Jay Maddison to provide the clean solos and round up very entertaining songs. Daniel Trigger will be a new name to many and he is worth listening to based on the melodic rock delights he has provided here. Highly Recommended

    • I don't really mind the extra guitar effects... unnecessary noodling, but actually well played, and no one should ever argue the dude's guitar prowess.  But those vocal chords have obviously taken a pounding over the past 35 years.  I would have lost a bet had someone challenged me whether or not that was Aldo Nova on vox.  I would have laughed and called you crazy for implying such jest.  Appears the joke is on me!   This one is not on my buy list.
