This year has been looking a bit bleak for gigs or festivals so far. Simple Minds were terrific and Within Temptation … Well, I’m still feeling slightly disappointed with the whole thing: not that I wouldn’t go and see them again though.
What a great gig that was.
From start to finish a great performance by all the band. They may be in their fifties now but they’ve still got it. Jim Kerr was full of energy. Very charismatic and sweaty.
I’m quite excited about this one. Simple Minds are another bucket list band for me. It is incredible that I have never seen them before but finally after 37 years I get to see them.
This year has been a cracker of year for live music for me. I’ve had one of the best festivals ever in Shout it Out Loud and my favourite performance of all time with the incredible Tesla… There was maybe the best “show” when P!nk came to town and Muse made amends for a lackluster performance in Malaysia a few year back.
It’s been over a month since the festival and it is still very clear in my mind. I said at the time that it was probably the best gig of my life. I still think so now. Tesla we just amazing.
The end of a great gig. Cinderella were tremendous. Makes me want to grow my hair again!!
The Sonisphere Festival is a touring music festival which takes place across Europe between June and August. It first started as far as I am aware in 2009 and in Finland it was located in Pori – home of the jazz festival. It was fast becoming a tradition to make an adventure out of the festival and spend some time around the area: and take in a few bars of course.
Since I bought the iPad in December I have been standardizing and building my media library and system. For the geeks out there, or just the plain nosy, here is an overview of my system at the moment.
I know I can build on this but this is just the beginning. I wish / hope that there will be some Nokia products in here – time will tell.
This has been some year for music for me. It all started with the discovery of the Reckless Love. They are a glam rock band that sound as if they are stuck in 1989 – but they are absolutely fantastic at what they do. Normally bands sound like one band that they are trying to “copy” – Reckless Love sound like many: Def Leppard, Poison, Motley Crue, Dokken – you name it!!
