Great show in Holmfirth. I've only seen Sweet twice - 2014 with Lincoln and O'Hora, and this one with Manzi & Small. I think the vocals this time were fantastic but didn't match 2014. The 2 new songs were okay, but didn't fit stylistically.

I was at Bradford on Saturday and half way through the set I was definitely in the mood to buy the albums - I like the songs that are in that Robin Beck / late 80s Cher realm, but then as the set wore on there were more and more songs that are so annoyingly derivative - Ball and Chain = Alice's Bed of Nails for example. Hopefully her songwriter can be a bit more original moving forward, because

Looking forward to the show in Bradford. Never did see Cyclone Tracy or The Radio Sun, so this should be cool.

Not listened to the album, but caught Cardinal Black for the first time a few weeks ago - tremendous voice, great band.

A large portion of the music I buy is at shows and I was having a conversation on Thursday evening with someone running a merch stand who was suggesting that it's becoming increasingly expensive to purchase stock ahead of touring. On top of that I assume that the expectation is that ticket sales will be impacted, and those that do attend may potentially spend less. I can imagine that it will beco

The Warehouse in Leeds (Friday night) has a capacity of 600. I'd say there were 450 in attendance.

Still remember first hearing it - a taped copy my then girlfriend borrowed from a friend from work - we played it in the car when I picked her up and although it reminded me a little of Lisa Dalbello we both thought it was a distinctively fresh sound. I bought it, I attended the tour, I liked it but I never bought anything else from Alanis and ..... I haven't played it in years.

I only became aware that this was happening last week, but I will be making sure to go. For a while Everclear were one of my favourite bands, but haven't listened to them for a while. Saw them live a couple of times in the 90s - Art's voice was pretty dreadful both times so I'm hoping that he's learned to look after it as he's matured. As for Soul Asylum, they were due to play the Duchess o

So very sorry to hear this. I hope you get compensation that you are content with and that you find another way to celebrate. As Trick said, it was by no means full. It was a seated event in a venue that holds 600 - 650 and from where I was sat there were at least 50 seats vacant. I don't know what upstairs was like. The start was delayed as people were being moved out of the seats they were s

Just found that I do actually own My Own Worst Enemy MMF, so I'll put it in the car for the trip. Thanks for the recommendations. Always found him to be an engaging gentleman so I'm looking forward to ticking him off my must see list

Originally the band was formed by Howarth & Regan after an attempt to reconnect with Ace Frehley, and included Stet Howland (WASP) and Sean Kelly (Crash Kelly; Nelly Furtado). Howland was replaced by Pero, but AJ passed away before recording was complete. Although the project gained a little traction with Kiss fans Howarth & Regan sort of transitioned the band into Return of the Comet.

It'll be a difficult balancing act and I'd expect a combination of tried and tested (Kieran faves like Danger Danger; Firehouse; Tyketto; Harem Scarem), and a couple of "how the hell did you pull that offs". I have my list but I'm not sharing - no need to add to the unwanted pressure with names too big to consider (Extreme?, Darren). Suggesting Dare and Ten on the same bill though Add

Trash, and Hey Stoopid are bottom of the pile for me, and struggle with Brutal Planet and Dragontown now. Give me the original band especially after the first two, the first couple of solo albums, and then later albums like Eyes of Alice Cooper or Along Came a Spider; then Constrictor and Raise Your Fist & Yell, then the Blackout period. Detroit Stories is strong too.

One of the greatest live bands, but Under the Blade was the only album I liked.

I guess the brothers will try something different - maybe with what's his name that used to be here all the time .... Leon? Vega was pretty successful in comparison to their previous bands, but there's a glass ceiling for UK melodic rock bands in a market saturated by NWOCR bands. Best of luck to all involved.

I own 4: GnR; Tracy Chapman; Richard Marx & Cheap Trick. (coincidentally I was to see those last two on consecutive nights in a couple of weeks) My younger brother had the Poison, Cinderella and Van Halen at that time, but I've never owned them myself.

I've probably been to a hundred different venues and never come across issues that would prevent me from seeing a band I liked. I don't tend to go to arena shows very often anymore as there can be a lack of atmosphere if the audience is predominantly fairweather music fans, on top of that the ticketing policies and prices can be disproportionate to the level of entertainment. I don't think th

Saw them 5 or 6 times after the reunion - Michael and Andy constantly bickering in a light-hearted fashion on stage. Obviously very different characters but always put on great shows. I'd love to be there for this one.

Even one of those would be incredible. I know KD was offered Starz for Firefest II, and he did say at one point that he'd chased New England but never got a response.

Count me in. What Kieran, Bruce, the crew, the family put together for all those years was the greatest achievement, giving us the chance to see acts we'd have never experienced otherwise including reuniting those believed to be long dead. Listening to the announcement shows on ARFM became a highlight of my year in itself.

I've enjoyed Corabi; Mike Tramp; Donnie Vie, Carl Dixon etc. but generally I can't get excited about acoustic shows, the exception being Devin Townsend who is incredible in his stripped back solo shows. It allows him to be more engaging, and vulnerable and really highlights his strength as a vocalist.

It's an outrageous amount and it's disgusting if any band takes advantage of their fans..... but just for context Michael Brandvold (a Kiss fan) originally came up with the suggestion of the M&G package for Kiss and the $1k figure, and he claims that they never expected to sell more than a couple per show at that price - but the packages were very popular with fans from day one - they sold 60

Manager Larry Mazer was on a podcast explaining that 2 of his acts (Company of Wolves and Blackeyed Susan) were signed to Polygram / Mercury because he had a good relationship with people at the label. Two more of his acts were already signed there (Cinderella and Kiss), and Mercury obviously had Bon Jovi; Leppard; Rush etc. there at the same time as well. Issues with agents and touring cycles

Kiss are absolutely no different from AC/DC, Guns n Roses, Maiden, Metallica etc. All bands sell merch (except Robert Plant's Saving Grace). Big bands sell more merch. If Maiden sell £1m in T shirts, and Kiss sell £500k in T shirts; £300k in comics and £200k in Kiss / Hello Kitty toddler apparel what's the difference? As I've said before - when you pay £65 for a Kiss ticket you can see that

By the time PBF came along I had zero interest in them or anything like them, but I saw them in 2002 and enjoyed the show for what it was so I have seen them 3 or 4 times since. To be honest in a live setting I've enjoyed Pretty Boy Floyd more than Motley Crue; LA Guns; Faster Pussycat; Warrant and other bigger names.
