Hour and a half set last night- I was shocked when they got to Crazy on You and ended the main set after barely an hour. Only one Led Zep number. There were some great moments, like Alone, but I thought it was a patchy evening. Also the Symphony Orchestra seemed a bit like an afterthought IMHO.

I was there on Sunday and echo previous comments about his energy and the incredible show he and the E Street Band put in. Makes you feel glad to be alive. Definitely the greatest live act there is right now.

True David, but at least the Americans got Let it Go and Foolin early in the set. Us Brits didnt even get those on last winter's tour.

Big fan. One of the few 'contemporary' bands I listened to in the dark day of the (pre-internet) early-mid nineties.

Status Quo at Crystal Palace FC- 1984. I went as the tour was supposedly the 'end of the road' for their live gigs- ironic in view of their recent announcement.

IIRC FM were booked for the M3 festival a year or two back and then pulled out fairly swiftly.

Two British bands enormous in the USA yet who meant jack shit in their home country and I don't think ever toured here- in the seventies, Foghat, and the eighties, The Outfield. Love both bands btw.

Has to be the amazing line up I saw at Rock Fest in Cadott Wisconsin in 2003. Day 1- Whitesnake, Dokken, Jackyl. Day 2- Def leppard,Alice Cooper, twisted Sister, Night Ranger. Day 3- Lynyrd Skynyrd,Sammy Hagar,Grand Funk,Firehouse,Loverboy. Day 4-Boston,Heart,38 Special,Rick Springfield, Eddie Money. Sadly, while still going, the festival has gone in a more Ozzfest direction in recent years.

For me this has been one of the most fascinating board discussions in a long while. Of course when 'rock n roll' first came on the scene it was viewed by our grandparents generation as a fad that would never last, so perhaps we are lucky it has thrived as long as it has. I doubt in the sixties the industry foresaw that a generation of artists and fans would continue to rock well into middl

Hi Marty, good to see you back on the board and I would second Martin and Shade's comments.I went last year but PoL aside not enough for me to make trip this year. There is a semi-covered area outside where most people tended to go between bands and was very sociable if a bit smoky. That is also where the food is, but it was very basic fast food and will shatter any stereotypes that Italian fo

Great review. Whoever thought in the years between 1995 and them reforming for Firefest that FM would come back as good as ever and give us AOR anoraks (as you refer in the piece) such great pleasure?

I love Freedom's Road too but nothing else I have heard of his since the mid nineties has floated my boat. On the other hand Scarecrow and Lonseome Jubilee I will never tire of.

Agree with many of the above posts but would also add it is great now to have multiple opportunities to make our own minds up. Back in the eighties the word of Kerrang and Derek Oliver in particular was God. There were numerous 5k albums that I bought which were rubbish- conversely a bad review, however unjustified, and an album would never get past the starting gate.

If anyone did, it would be 'Jammywanker' aka my fellow Brit traveller to MRF Steve. Check out his youtube channel for videos from the show and other gigs.
