Showaddywaddy – live in Dorset
The remaining incarnation of 70s rock’n’roll popsters Showaddywaddy pay a visit to the East Dorset town of Wimborne… don’t be sniffy, come on in, you know you’d enjoy it (if you’re over 55).
The Cure – live in Birmingham…again
Some 38 years after seeing The Cure for the first time, in Birmingham, an older and greyer haired gig goer returns to the city to see another epic show.
Glastonbury Festival 2022 – my wander through it
So who writes up a Glastonbury Festival experience six months afterwards? Well it was just too much of a beast to digest… but eventually I sorted out my four day wander.
The Lemonheads live – Southampton
Evan Dando returns to the UK with the latest incarnation of The Lemonheads. A grey-haired gig goer gets a chance to see the 90s long-haired grungy rocker, 30 years after the first time and it is a massive disappointment.
The Enemy live in Bournemouth
Right up there with my top gigs of the year: The Enemy reunion tour hits Bournemouth. So much energy in the room.

A trip to Nashville – music city – with a chance to see The Killers. A chance wasted.

An opportunity to see a band in the beautiful Chicago Theater, while on holiday in the USA – it just so happened to be The Shins.
Victorious Festival: Sunday
The third and final day of 2022 Victorious Festival on Southsea Common – Suede win it for me.
