Echo those sentiments. Great night and the guys were happy to chat and sign stuff after the show finished. Some of the dates on the tour are sold out but I'll be in Manchester on the 14th for another night of fun. So many hair on the neck moments for me, but 'Champion' and 'Stronger Than Steel' were jaw-dropping.

Am I right in thinking a number of songs were written whilst the band were still White Sister? 'One Way Love' especially, in its original format, hss a quicker tempo and a little more energy. I'm sure DCD can enlighten us, if he's checking out the board.

Maximes on a Friday night was never about bands playing. It was a Friday night get together for like minded people who wanted to do some socilising, dancing and maybe a drink or ten. If anything bands playing tended to keep people away. This event was originally to be held in Boulevard, which holds around 17 people. Maximes AOR/melodic rock nights were originally every Friday before being held on

It was an excellent night in Manchester, value for money was an understatement. Kobra and the Lotus were an excellent opening act, great energy. Then Kobra manned her own merch stall while Evergrey were playing. Love Evergrey but was disappointed with the sound. First time seeing Delain cos they always tour at a time of year when everyone else does. They were superb. Charlotte is not just stunnin

Saw Pop Evil for the first time in 2014 supporting Five Finger Death Punch and waa very impressed with their energy and stage presence. They weren't better than FFDP but did make a big impression. Thought last years album was really good, despite some critical negativity, and would welcome the chance to see them play live again. Could not make the Manchester show but thought the pairing with 3DD

Forever Still are not particularly new. The 'Tied Down' album is made up of 3 EPs, recorded over the course of 3 years, brought together as a single album. The album was initially released independently (and reviewed in Fireworks magazine almost 12 months ago) but they have managed to ink a deal with a major label that sees it re-issued with some acoustic re-workings and a bonus DVD. They will be

Not everyone needs to have a beer when they see a band I know, just some info for those who do. Can't comment on the other Academy venues around the UK but the one in Liverpool was charging £5.40 for a pint of draught lager at the Y&T show last night. Seems quite expensive to me.

So, apparently there are no Melodicrock.com Y&T fans in the UK who have attended one of the recent shows. For anyone who is interested they came on stage at 20.30 and finished at 22.35. As usual....excellent!

Martina's set was made up of songs from 'Unity'. Art Nation concentrated on the 'Revolution' album.

Another enjoyable day of music with top honours (for me anyway) going to Martina Edoff, Alessandro Del Vecchio, The Defiants (Paul Laine managed to control his alcohol fuelled state enough to keep the entertainment levels high) and Kevin Chalfant (with a well chosen set of high calibre AOR tracks). Hopefully the event was successful enough to warrant a third outing. A trip to Nottingham has becom

Good turnout for the gig. Bands of the day for me Jean Beauvoir and Blood Red Saints with special mention for a great opening set by Stone Broken.

Originality has never been an issue for me if the quality of the material is there. Advances in technology means there are probably as many projects as hands these days so a lot of songs that may appeal will never get played live. The live environment has always been the test of a bands capabilities for me. The level of musicianship backed up by good songs and the ability to mix both is what usua

There were certainly a few folk elements to be found in the earlier couple of albums but, speaking as someone who has seen the band over 20 times featurung both Heather and Livvy on vocals, they have been basically rock with a Progressive edge for the last 12 years at least.They are certainly heavier in the live environment and they always give great value for money.

Great album, as mentioned in a previous thread. 'Breathing Lightning' was bugging me for ages because it reminded me of someone else. It finally clicked (in my opinion). The melodies sound a lot like Pink Cream 69 and Joey Belladonna has something of a David Readman vibe in his delivery

Took a little break from listening to CDs and caught up with a few films I hadn't watched for a couple of years. All music based but NOT musicals. Love them all for different reasons, some more than others:- Almost Famous (Kate Hudson/Billy Crudup) Still Crazy (Bill Nighy/Jimmy Nail) Rockstar (Mark Wahlberg/Jennifer Aniston) School Of Rock (Jack Black) This Is Spinal Tap Any others I ma

Does anyone have any approximate running times for the 4 bands that are playing. I'll be in Manchester for the show this coming Saturday and trains are quite unreliable at the moment. Thanks in advance. Dave

Not watched much today but decided to give Dokken a go. Managed 3 songs and nearly cried. Kiss Of Death then Into The Fire followed by Dream Warriors. Great band but they need a singer. Never retreated to the pub so quickly.....

Here all 3 days but not watched every band. Day 1 until Tom Keifer the sound mix disappointed...lead vocals just too low. Eclipse rocked and Keifer was a standout with some Cinderella classics and a rock star performance. Day 2 the sound was spot on. Jim Peterik would have benefited from a real singer but Alessandro Del Vechio was a total surprise with his singing and really came to the fore duri

Was so disappointed. Had been looking forward to the band's first Manchester show in over 8 years. The whole evening was flat and the mix did everyone no favours.....sounded like there was only one guitar. The choice of cover was also very strange and killed any momentum mid set. Unfortunately the weakest link was new frontman Marshal Dutton, vocally he seemed lost, especially on the older materi

The band just took a break. Singer David Draiman started a new project called Device. Similar in style to Disturbed I guess, maybe a little more industrial. The album features a great version of the old Ozzy/Lita Ford song 'Close My Eyes Forever', a duet between Draiman and Lzzy Hale. Geezer Butler and Glenn Hughes also make contributions to songs. Nice to have Disturbed back though.

I was in Nottingham on Saturday night as well Mike, covering the Amaranthe/Santa Cruz gig at the Rescue Rooms for the mag. It was packed.....300+ possibly. Last year at the same venue (same time of year actually) Smash Into Pieces were the support and it was great exposure for them....Elize from Amaranthe as you know guests on the new SIP album. The Smash promoter needs a kick up the arse as ther
