  1. The November 2017 show at Glasgow O2 Academy was pretty close to capacity at around the same ticket price
  2. I am every thankful for @riverdude2 for sorting me out for tickets for Hyde Park. I already had holidays booked to USA when Hampden date was announced, so HRC was next best. At that time a UK Bruce Tour was an annual occurrence, and sometimes even more regular than that, (05 D&D, 06 Seeger tours a and b, 07 and 08 Magic, and 09 WoaD). i watched Glastonbury at home on the Saturday night, and flew down to a London on the Sunday morning. I thought he had put everything into Glasto, and would be pretty shot at HRC. Arrived as Gaslight Anthem, were doing ‘59 Sound with special guest, and got a great spot in the sun. Didn’t really think James Morrison met the description of Hard Rock Calling but was pleasant enough, and quite enjoyed DMB. We shuffled forward a bit and found ourselves a couple of rows behind the attractive girl with the Greece flag, and enjoyed an amazing night. Vocals weren’t great on London Calling, but otherwise a near perfect performance, given the exertions the previous evening. Racing and Jungleland were standouts, also Brian Fallon delivered a great performance on No Surrender. Also my last show with The Big Man. While, I was pretty much blown away, the GL reviews were pretty flat the day after. Maybe a bit over exposure at the time. Great to have it captured initially on TV and Hard Rock Cafes, and then full show Blu-ray release
  3. Willie Nile bringing his One Guitar to these shores in 2019 with 5 UK dates. Opening show in Edinburgh on 22nd May http://www.willienile.com/events
  4. No problem, glad to be able to give a fellow tramp the opportunity to see the show. Sounds like you enjoyed it as much as I did
  5. That is the same T-Shirt I picked up in theatre in April. Quality was fine by me, and it washes well. Not often you are able to get a shirt for around a tenth of the ticket price.
  6. Yeah, went up with the School of Art. shame, as great wee venue.
  7. Just got an email alert that Jake Clemons is playing Glasgow Garage next week. Wasn’t aware he was coming north. Great show at the now burnt down O2 ABC last year. Heads up in case anyone else missed the announcement
  8. TM going to establish a resale site, which will allow resale at face value or less, +15% admin fee
  9. Found this on YouTube from 3 weeks ago, which gives an indication of how the show may appear on TV.
  10. Think that was my 12th Nils Lofgren show last night in Edinburgh, and he was in great form. Stories from his long career, even jokes about presidents, and donning his new dance shoes. I have seen a good few shows with Greg as the band, and he has grown into the roll, adding trumpet to his repertoire. I was glad I was near the front of the line for the meet and greet post show, as I suspect it might have gone on a long time. A few pics (sorry about orientation)
