Gigs you went to see?

Tredegar - The Target Club, somewhere in London. Back in the 80's I just went along for a few beers and the band were amazing.


Cheap Trick - Manchester Apollo - Supported Motley Crue on some tour or another and I was only going to see Crue really - only had Budokan by CT and thought it was okay (CT were promoting SoTE) and they completely and utterly wiped the stage with the headliners. From that point onwards I was a Tricky fan!


Sammy Hagar / Def Leppard - Manchester Free Trade Hall - If I remember rightly Sammy was promoting the Street Machine album and I only went because my mate had no-one to go with but he (Sammy H) was completely fantastic, but his support band was Def Leppard - who were mind blowing...so much so I went out and bought the Ride into the Sun E.P. on Bludgeon Riffola the very next day.

Amazing gig all round and the streets resounded to loads of Brits singing "We beat the Yanks again!" :lol: no offence U.S. folks !


Bon Jovi - It pains me to write this because I truly depise the band, him and the music BUT my gf at the time took me to see him and I have to hold my hands up and say they put on a fantastic show. I saw them another once or twice since and they weren't as good though.

Probably The Eagles in 2001.


I`ve always really liked them but never considered going to see them live, my brother bought 2 tickets and gave me one.


Turned out to be the best concert I`ve ever been to!


Their playing was so professional, the guitar was absolutely note for note perfection, my brother and I kept looking at each other in disbelief at how good they were.


Superb band and performance :tumbsup:

    • Atlantis is amazing 👏  Was my album of that year 
    • A lot to like on this release but also some stuff just too light for me. 
    • What a honey Gudrun Laos was and what a Killer track this is!    
    • I didn't say I didn't like it. It's a good album, but I guess after years of reading folks praise for it I built it up to be something more than it actually was. 
    • We already know you're a leftist idiot! Known all around these parts!
    • How are you guys letting horrible songs get into your head???
    • I'm surprised you didn't like it. That's a shame. 
    • It's a mystery alright, although how the band could okay this for release is an even bigger mystery. Also find it intresting that all of the reviews I've read have failed to mention the bizarre mixing and mastering of this record, which kinda makes you question their credibility as rock reviewers.   This I don't agree with at all. The thing that makes H.E.A.T the awesome band that they are is that they've never compromised with their sound or felt the urge to follow trends. We all know that they've could have gone the Dynazty route, making hard 'n' heavy records, that would probably have made them an even bigger and more popular band with the masses. Of course that's not what the fans want, and they know that. We want H.E.A.T to sound like H.E.A.T - and I think they've done a damn fine job of that on this record. I don't mind a bit of experimentation, like on Demon Eyes, as long as it's the exception and a temporarily deviation from the trademark sound. As for bangers, I do think there are some here, but they're all ruined to some degree by the poor mixing job. No, they don't reach the awesomeness of let's say "Dangerous Ground" or "Rock Your Body" from the last album, but stuff like "Nationwide", "Not For Sale", "Hold Your Fire" and "Wings Of An Aeroplane" come pretty damn close. Being the AOR fanatic I am, my main criticism with this band is always that I want them to be more AOR, like on the first 2-3 records. If you're looking for a direction, then this record is clearly a distinctive step away from that. They want to be pure melodic hard rock and not AOR, I think it's pretty clear. Truthfully it's been evident from "Tearing Down The Walls" and onward, but Force Majeure makes it even more evident that no change in that direction is very probable.   If there's anything that this album doesn't lack, it's guitars. The guitars are so loud in the mix that Kenny´s vocals are drowning in them. The album is unlistenable with good headphones, you have to play it through speakers or earphones to make it somewhat listenable. Other weird little things about this record: CD is released in Europe as a f*cking digipak for some reason. Who's beind this strange and unnecessary decision, the band or the label? Also, no writing credits. You have to go to Discogs or Spotify to find out who wrote these tunes.
