I think generally UK ticket prices are about right, however, it is the excessive booking fees on each ticket that is my major gripe. Some agencies go as far as to charging you for printing your own ticket! The last two concerts I have attended have both been exceptional value for money. Based on the playing time of each group and the the face value of the ticket they worked out as follows:-

Let me preface my lists by admitting that I am a Kiss fan, but not a fanatic, unlike several of my friends. I will be interested yto find out what they make of my lists. Kiss have always beena great live band but for every great track that they have written and recorded they have also made some turkeys. Songs:- 1 . Love Gun 2 . Detroit Rock City 3 . Nowhere To Run 4 . Tears Are Falling

I won a competition to meet Strangeways at Firefest a few years back and Terry Brock and Jim Drummond were very friendly but guitarist Ian J. Stewart could not be bothered to come and talk to us. It could have been pre-show nerves as it was just before their first reunion performance. Just about every artist I have met at Firefest has been super cool whether it be an official meet and greet or if

Also my second time seeing Royal Hunt after their sensational Firefest appearance back in 2012. In total agreement with everything from the previous post except that my personal favourite was 'Half Past Loneliness'. Royal Hunt must be melodic rocks best kept secret, board members here notwithstanding. ;) Can anyone at the Sheffield show confirm the following set list:- 1 - Double Conversion

Do not think so as the option is not given on the menu page and the audio automatically defaults to 5:1. For an acoustic show this absolutely rocks!

Despite no songs from 'Images & Words' and only one from 'Falling Into Infinity' & 'Black Clouds & Silver Linings' respectively (my three favoutite Dream Theater albums) it was still an amazing gig! The new material was especially good particularly 'Illimunation Theory'; yes too many tracks from 'Awake' but only a minor gripe from what was an absolutely fantastic evening. Agree with P

I personally would call them AOR but they certainly have enough Southern Rock about them to also fit in that genre. Whatever genre you want to call them, .38 Special are a great band.

If ever a band epitomised, for me personally, what is so great about Firefest, then it would be Canadian’s Harem Scarem. A long-time favourite band that I would never have had the opportunity to see live, however, thanks to Firefest, this was the third time seeing the band formed in Scarborough, Ontario. Although I really enjoyed their previous performances I could understand some of the critic

Religiously listened every Friday night, usually doing my Maths homework at the same time. Ths was pre-Internet and the best way of hearing new and old music. I can, however, never remember getting the ‘Friday Night Connection’. Happy days... :)

Hi Laurent, Thank-you for your reply. I do appreciate that some people do not like the ‘over-produced’ style of albums such as ‘Hysteria’; I am just not one of them. :) I certainly know where you are coming from with regards to the first three on your list although disagree totally with Bon Jovi’s ‘Slippery When Wet’. The latter has probably more to do with the fact that I lis

I am a big fan of Def Leppard and think that 'X' is an excellent album. Also like 'Slang' which is the other album that often draws criticism from the "traditionalists". I am fully aware of Joe's limitations as a singer but, personally, like his voice; as Daredevil said, "soulful and melodic". Laurent, I am genuinely interested in albums that you consider "interest

There are not many bands that can release three diverse albums (their first three) in a row such as ‘Harem Scarem’ (AOR), ‘Mood Swings’ (Hard Melodic Rock) and ‘Voice of Reason’ (Dark Melodic Rock). A few of us like all three albums and for me personally that is why ‘Mood Swings’ is such a classic, being the perfect blend of the first and third album. I actually bought all three
