I don't care who either of these guys are, I'm just on here for the banter.
I guess I wanted to show that I find him very unknown, despite his 2000th gig. And I still don't mind @THESEVENTHMARINER sharing more about his music.
Martin Turner on the other hand. A legend.
I've just bought a ticket for Sabaton in London next weekend. One of my friends is going so it'll be cool to catch up and Sabaton are best enjoyed with beer and good company.
I'm seeing them on Friday.
I was looking forward to seeing Sabaton on Friday, but then I saw the forecast. Heavy snow all Thursday night...
Please don't block the roads...Please don't block the roads...
Might be seeing Sabaton with Accept in March. Nothing's decided yet though, so we'll see.
Perfect weather for tanks.
Thankfully no tanks were required, and I got there in one piece! And what a fine gig it was!
The sound at Brixton Academy was glorious. Does the Manchester venue often have problems with sound?
I've only been there once before. It's not in the city centre, though, so maybe it has sound limitation rules on it. In case it disturbs anyone in the nearby car park, on the main road, in the excessively small and worn looking pub next door, or in the boarded up factory along the street.
I forgot to mention: I saw the tall Steve Harris lookalike on Friday. I used to regularly spot him at a variety of rock and metal gigs in Leeds and Manchester, but he was conspicuously missing from Amon Amarth in November and Amorphis earlier last year. I nearly crashed into him on the way to the loos.
There are houses near Brixton Academy but no there were no problems with the sound.
I didn't really notice a problem with sound, except for half of the crowd not paying much attention to the band and talking very loudly.
The guy in front of my didn't seem to be having a good time. During one particularly well known song everyone around him was jumping but he just stood still.
I found the volume levels in Manchester just a tad too low for my liking.
Going to see Udo tonight! First Texas performance since he left Accept (that I know of)
I just bought a ticket to see Thrice again, in Camden at the end of April.

Udo was so much better than I expected. Every member of his band surpassed my expectations. Very talented. LONG set! So many of those songs from 83-85 I have not heard in a long time and they brought back great memories. It was also the first time in many years me and my 3 best buds from school have been in the same car together to and from the show. Great time! BTW, Udo's son is the drummer!
I saw Accept live four years ago and Mark did a great job but experiencing these songs live with the master himself (Udo) singing, makes all the difference.
It's just hard to find good metal acts here.

May 28: Iron Maiden, London
June 15: Iron Maiden, Chicago
July 15: Iron Maiden, Toronto
That's how mine looks
Went to see Sabbath in Dublin the other night. It was the first time I ever sat at a gig. It will be a long time before I ever do it again. They seemed to play fine and overall I had a good night but sitting sucks balls, I felt detached from proceedings, like watching sport on tv with the volume off.
Next up, Blaze.
