An irresistible orchestral performance of Lexicon of Love by ABC, to celebrate its 40th birthday and my gig buddy Dave’s 60th.
An extraordinary show with an inflatable monster and rainbow, a flying bird toy and a bubble that the lead singer performed a significant part of the set from. All is normal for a Flaming Lips show it seems.
The long wait for The Killers UK tour is over and the crowd are on the pitch ready at the home of Southampton Football Club: Killers do Saints as I hit the bar.
The synth-pop duo that were a backdrop to the late 80s and early 90s are back out on a big tour, tonight visiting Bournemouth. A curious grey-haired gig goer is there near the front.
A rare foray into 70s heavy rock for the grey-haired gig goer. Whitesnake – the Farewell Tour – with Foreigner and Europe providing some solid rock supports. Quite a trio.
A very unusual setting for the return of My Chemical Romance after a decade. Hope the plants enjoyed it. I did.
Gary Numan back on tour and very much back riding another wave of enthusiasm for his newer albums as well as his early ones.
A visit to The 100 Club is always a cherished event, and not one I’ve done that often, so seeing punk legends The UK Subs is a treat, tonight with a band from Poole, The Mistakes.
A live gig bonanza of eight gigs in ten days travelling to four cities in three countries.
What a fab few weeks. 10cc, Sad Café and the last Genesis gig ever. Rock on.
