What Gig's Have You Been To?

Couldn't see a thread dedicated to live music.

I went to see The Specials last night at Rock City,Nottingham.  Good gig small venue (about 2500).  Decent atmosphere.  Was almost a very short concert with Mr Hall threatening to walk off after bottles were thrown.  It seems some people just can't help acting like idiots.  Some well dressed folks about too.  I'm always blown away when I see a women skinheads, a male skinhead so what?  But a woman skinhead that takes guts.

    • I think its only the one original member now. But as he's the singer and guitarist thats fine. They were very good indeed and the sound from a 12 string Ric was immense. SA were also on top form.

  • A motley looking crew, admittedly, but these guys blew my mind last Thursday. Wilko Johson's band, were simply outstanding, each one of them treated the audience to a wonderful solo, on their respective instruments2033597587?profile=RESIZE_930x, Norman Watt-Roy on bass, was truly brilliant, I left the auditorium with a huge smile on my face.

    • Need to catch those guys.

    • Absolutely; saw them three times; always in top form!

    • Looks excellent Kai. They are a fantastic band that I will certainly be back to see the next time they play here.

    • True professionals!

    • Yeah, totally agree. For us it is fantastic seeing such a band in a small intimate club, but i think they deserve to playing far bigger venues. Very talented and they have some brilliant songs in their sets.
