Another thing I think people underestimate is how many people would turn up to some of these gigs if they knew about them.

I'm going to Journey/Deep Purple and Extreme in the next few months and in both cases NONE of the half a dozen people going with me (all of whom are dead keen) would've known if I hadn't told them.

People of our vintage (late 30's, early 40's) just don't see/track down gig guides any more on the off chance of seeing a band we like. I do my best but still miss the odd one. Years ago when I spent more time in the city it was a lot easier - you see the flyers and stuff like Beat magazine lying about. Less and less people know work/study in the city now.

Not that I'm a huge fan but I didn't find out until too late that Nightwish and Epica were in town in recent times.
