I think Scotts just described the situation all too well :-)

I do agree on the booking charges, but for me the booking fee really is a convenience fee. If I'm booking tickets to 70-100 shows per year (including 15-20 overseas ones) I'm not trotting off to the box office for each one. Don't have the time or energy to do that. For one offs I see its advantage, but as a matter of course, I'm always taking the easiest route and the financial hit that comes wit

I don't think any of the prices mentioned are excessively high to be honest. I'd happily fork over £25 for a couple of decent bands in a reasonable venue any night of the week (which explains why my gig diary is so full).

Saw this tour in Toronto last April. I have to say I was pretty impressed. Vocally the guy is spot on. Going to see them again in Oxford later this month.

Not had too many bad band meets at all - some artists certainly go the extra mile though. Gowan, Ronnie Dio, Ted Poley, the Uriah Heep guys and Rob Halford all get a special mention for being way cooler than they ever needed to be. So many others have been great too though - way too many to name but those few stand out. Bad experiences. Dave Mustaine in the early 90s wasn't a meet that lives l

Saw them in Toronto in 2012. Fabulous live band. They had spots on local breakfast TV around this show and played live.Sure there will be Youtube or whatever clips of that somewhere.

Thats quite a few dates we know are gone - wonder if the whole tour is on the way out? Hope not.

I was thinking the same. Perfect band for SRF.

As with most festivals the headliners are predictable. Its going to be the undercard which makes my decision on if I buy a ticket or not. At least the "seen too many times" headliners mean its dead easy to get off the carpark at the end of the night :-)

Though they did go through a stage of having no original members I think? Not now though - back to 1.

Sweden Rock and then a week later HiRock would be fine by me.

My first thought is are they going to change the setlist.....been predictable for far too long. Not asking for an Elder medley, though would quite enjoy that, just rest a few of the old warhorses and liven things up a bit.

I've got a feeling that Sweden Rock will get him one year. Based on nothing more than the fact I'd REALLY love Sweden Rock to get him one year!

This creeping out so early might make a few re-consider possible HRH plans. Darn sight easier to get to for a start!

Its going to be a special show. Sweden Rock always manages to be a tier or two above any other outdoor festival - especially for fans of our genre.

Not just survivor........... "Dear visitors of the Festival, due to the extreme weather conditions in Bavaria, as well as disaster proclaimed also in the District of Traunstein, we must cancel the current, second day of the HiRock Festival in Inzell. The bands scheduled for today can no longer travel on the basis of the existing road conditions. The further development of the weather sugg

Saw the show in Canada earlier in the year. Brilliant. Still one of the top performers out there and I was happy with the setlist (boring to see the same setlist time after time, prefer my bands to mix it up a little). Looking forward to Sweden Rock.

They had Biffy Clyro as support on the North American leg of the tour. That was a pretty decent bill to be honest - no idea what they are playing at in blighty?? The Muse show itself was very good - and in Toronto they finished their main set with a section from YYZ - which I thought was cool.

Agree with this. I go to the NEC maybe 15 or so times per year for gigs. If its a band I'm really into I stay to the end, if its just someone I want to see (like Clapton last week for example) out of interest I'll skip out at the encores and be back home within the hour. If you go to a lot of gigs those extra hours in bed all add up :-)

Saw him with Clapton on Monday. He got 2 or 3 songs on lead, plus lots of backing vocals and melody lines. He is also one hell of a organ player! Great to hear him. He is playing the Rewind festival in Henley in the summer (for UK fans)

Yep - going to RF as well. Also with Zac Brown Band added to the Springsteen night at Hard Rock Calling its looking like a fine old summer for UK country fans.

Was an excellent night all round. Little Big Town put on a fine display too. McGraw though was a excellent big arena/stadium rock type headliner. He can certainly work a crowd. My next UK country show is Eric Church - that should be a cracker too.
