.... and the Treatment opened the Kiss / Crue tour and before that Kiss had The Envy, Bad City, The Academy Is, Taking Dawn etc. but do younger bands really benefit from the exposure to largely older audiences ? Sorry to say that a large proportion of the audiences at arena shows may check out the opening band live but very few will purchase their product, follow their social media or care eno

.... and he toured with Tony Martin in Whole Lotta Metal about 10 years ago. Carl will do a good job with the vocals but a Nazareth live show was as much about Dan's sense of humour as his unique singing voice so it will be a very different beast. I didn't see them will David Moyes erm ... Linton Osbourne but the poor guy had a near impossible task following McCafferty.

Yeah. Not listening to any more samples, so I get the full impact of the completed album.

Strong start. Nothing there that disappoints. I'll definitely be there for DRN and Stan Bush but will wait for the day splits just in case there's one day that is wall to wall usual suspects.

And the Do Your Own Thing Live dvd is pretty darn good too. Definitely a band that deserved better. If they'd have had a more individual name and landed a decent support tour they may have faired better. Instead they headlined to pretty empty houses and ended up doing too many covers and destroying their own character.

Having had to drop out of attending HRH I've picked up a ticket for Fibbers. It would make sense to have an Eclipse lead tour graphic / poster to share though Pete. If there is one I must have missed it. I appreciate that there's a TN graphic on your Tainted Nation page but Eclipse has a higher profile.

In my opinion their output, certainly from A Hard Day's Night onwards, is pretty impressive although Rubber Soul and Revolver are their only great albums in my mind. There are bands that have put out better albums but when it comes to the biggest and most iconic bands: Zeppelin, The Who, Queen, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Metallica, Sabbath, etc. I don't

The credibility boat sailed in 1978. Surely now it is just about exposure to new audiences - hence the Hello Kitty tie in and now this. I don't know how tickets are selling but they must be confident of attracting attention and therefore sales if in recent years they have played Budokan (capacity 14,500) and on this tour they'll be at Tokyo Dome (capacity 55,000). This song doesn't sound suffi

I agree - The owners have chosen a poor spot to open this new venture.It isn't the worst I've been in but I was wondering how it was allowed to exist as a nightclub for so many years. Presumably at the time of planning the H.E.A.T. tour the Leeds show was scheduled for the Cockpit. Futuresounds Promotions closed the Cockpit on 10 September at very short notice after surveys showed that it woul

Kiss began using the Schaffer-Vega system in February 1977 allegedly in response to Ace Frehley's onstage electrocution in December 1976. It has been claimed that Kiss were the first touring band to use them.

Manchester would be great for me too Andy. There were certainly a lot from your side of the Pennines at the show in London last year. I know that some of the HRH acts have also tied in a show at the Corporation in Sheffield in the past.

Gene tweeted and then withdrew so must have jumped the gun on the announcement but it does seem likely given that they are headlining other European festivals in May and June. However, on Monday Kiss' licensing company also mentioned European shows with Def Leppard.

I've been looking forward to this but the clips suggest that a lot of the tracks sound very similar to the originals and a lot of the performers' personalities seem to have been diluted as a consequence.

From what I remember it was only available free to download. Don't think there was an official CD release. Some of my favourite Kiss covers on this.

I'm usually disappointed by covers live. It's often a cliche and a cop out, especially in an already short set. It also shows a lack of confidence in a band's own material .... but Patricia absolutely owns on this. A nice reminder of why Nexx were my favourite band at Firefest III.

I took my son to see 30STM a few years ago. It was very good but I couldn't use the word 'fun' - boy Jared was on some bizarre messianic trip that night. I know who I'd rather listen to Dennis.

Ambitious - a couple of 13,000 seaters. Quite a step up from their usual headlining shows in the UK. I wish them every success. Have they ever headlined this size of venue before ?

Certainly there's a few duff lines in some songs but given Ace's limitations as a singer I'm actually pretty impressed with his vocals. Live his delivery has been very poor in recent years - the guy's mic technique is the worst of anybody I can think of, but he's surprised me with this album.I'm enjoying most of the songs and the guitar is great throughout.

Thanks for introducing me to the mag Nick - what a great read and loving the embedded music, cos most of the featured bands I wouldn't usually bother with. I have Ace's album on order so I'll expect it early next week. I like the clips I've heard but it doesn't sound heavier than Anomaly to me. I hear the Frehley's Comet debut but with more aggressive solos but I take your word for it as you've

Tough Love, Cold Hearted, Wildside, Crosstown Train, Metropolis, Over You, may have been more that I can't recall now. A very balanced set in my mind. I would say that the newer songs went down just as well as the old.

Not that much of a surprise as he's local and joined the band in Manchester and Bingley in the last couple of years .... but they were great as always last night - Let Love be the Leader was particularly awesome.

The people of Glasgow should be very proud. It was a great Games and the city put on a really good show.I haven't been there in 20 years but we're now looking to come up for a long weekend, perhaps around the Who show. Having worked on this year's Tour de France I have a new appreciation of the tremendous effort it takes from the organising committee, local authorities, volunteers, transport,
