I'm looking forward to seeing Billy Squier live this summer.. I heard he is touring..I just hope maybe it's Billy the rocker this time instead of Billy & the blues..Last time i saw him was in Toronto a few years back with Styx and Bad Company and i was disappointed. His web site says he will do songs from his full catalog:

from the Piper releases to present.

 

A couple of shows i went to last year were:

The Bad Co reunion in Florida

Grand Funk, War, The Sweet in Michigan.. I was determined to see The Sweet. even though Steve Priest is the only original member (2 are deceased), they rocked!! didn't get to see much of Grand Funk though..

 

Romantics, Loverboy, Eddie Money in Atlantic City.. thought Eddie was a little off on this one..

Loverboy (didn't play long enough) and Romantics didn't disappoint though..

 

Some

I'd really like to see: that i've never seen

Alias (reunion tour)

Haywire (infrequent shows in the Nova Scotia area)

Head East (probably won't make it to SD though..)

 

 

I did go to Vancouver (by the way, I live in MD) a few years ago to see:

 

Harlequin

Headpins

Prism

Kenny Shields & Streetheart

 

Great show! Only problem was because of a curfew, Streetheart only got to play a couple of songs...

Damn you Nick.... Adam Bomb again. Well, maybe someday I'll get to see him. Until then I have this autographed Adam Bomb CD that will just have to do. :banana:

 

Within the next 4 weeks I have Alcatrazz (w/G. Bonnett) and Seven Witches, a couple of KIX shows, and I may even go see Adler's Appetite. Then in July there is Rocklahoma.

 

 

PS ~ Hope you enjoyed the Adam Bomb show. :drink:

Hey bud...yeah it was good, but there wasn't much of a crowd .... probably down to him playing there so often and also Tuesday night may not be the best night to drag punters out!

But he put on a good show as always and the band are as tight as a gnats chuff! He sure can play guitar.

He's on again in Manchester centre at the Rockbox in a few weeks but I'm working I think....I reckon he'll get a better crowd there!

 

Strangely enough the landlord of the pub is a guy called John Brent....I used to know him years ago when he was a rock DJ in the area...I was wondering what had happened to him so I had a good chat with him. I didn't recognise him at first, well it's been about 20 years since I last saw him plus his hair is dark now and it used to be blonde so it threw me haha!

It also surprised me the bands that are coming on there for such a small place...up coming gigs are Dan Reed, Demon and Marseille....might HAVE to go to the Marseille gig!

I'd of liked to have gone to Dan Reed, saw him three times during his Dan Reed Network Days.

 

Off to see Oli Brown next month, followed by The Hampsters.

Well, I (or should I say my wallet) hope I've seen the last show for quite a while. Seen some awesome modern rock bands, which should hopefully see me through the year. Of course I'll see any random 80's hard rock band that might come out here for whatever reason, but nothing on the schedule for a while now. :)

You sick bastards (not just you, Glen, seen a few of your types - lol). I don't understand how you freaks say I "might" see HEAT! :lol: Seems these bands are being under-appreciated and should come over here to Australia where at least they know I'd appreciate them. :)

I have a couple (literally) but I'm too young to know anyone into "hair metal" and too old to know anyone into modern rock. Either way, I honestly like going by myself. I'm only there to enjoy the music anyway - not there to chat. I couldn't give a lesser f*ck in the world if I'm there by myself.

Poser. :P A man of your vintage should surely know by now that it doesn't matter what anyone thinks of you. ;)

Went to see Rush back in 2007 on my own (first and last time) and I was paranoid everyone was looking at me, not a great experience though the show was awesome :tumbsup:

Classic Rock Metalfest in Maryland! Info on Melodicrock.com.

Dokken, Ratt, Kix just to name a few..Right in my backyard! (30 min. drive).

Guess I'll have to skip Firefest and hit this one! Although the bands in Firefest will probably never play in the U.S. :banger:

 

 

oops, forgot the date : May 30, 2009 :headbanger:
