Great - can't wait to get back into live music. Have the following lined up:

Elton John
Eivor
Steve Hackett
P-Floyd
another Pink Floyd tribute show
Martin Barre
Pineapple Thief
God is an Astronaut
Samantha Fish
Jeff Beck
Iron Maiden
Rammstein

Several other maybes but what's the verdict on seeing The Stranglers? I know most bands change but there's only one original left - should I go?!

Just home from the Steve Hackett gig in Leicester. I reckon Nad had a sore throat but did brilliantly. Two hours of early Genesis with fillings rattling in teeth at times. Great to be back to live music.

Most of the time he is great - I am not bothered if he puts his own twist on some songs but there are two I just don't think he does well - Afterglow and Dance on a Volcano

My first ever gig in 1992...Teenage Fanclub at the Lemon Grove in Exeter. Massive soft spot for them ever since. How were they now Gerrard Love has left?

I think they've dropped most of Gerard Love's songs from the set but they still write some decent songs and look like they're enjoying themselves.

On Wednesday we went to a concert that has been postponed three times. It was originally on Saturday 21 March 2020, Thursday 17 September 2020 and Sunday 14 March 2021.It eventually happened on 22nd September.
Ash can always be relied on for a good night out and this was no exception. Support was from The Gulps and Indoor Pets, both of which were well worth listening to.

A quick update. The excellent Blinders at Manchester Albert Hall on 30th September. A great band at a great venue.

At Manchester Academy on Friday 8th October, Fontaines D.C. Brilliant gig. Not sure that being at the front was a wise move though...

Cool pics thanks for sharing 😃
With just the slightest bit of finesse, I might have made a little less mess.
