Alexisonfire just announced a concert in London at the start of June. I listened to them a lot for a couple of years when I was a teenager then lost track of them until they broke up for a few years. I managed to see them four years ago at Reading Festival when Metallica headlined which was cool, but missed their London show last summer. Tickets are pretty pricey (I've spent a lot of money recently!) but this show is a Saturday and I reckon if I can see them at their own show just once then I won't need to go again. Decisions, decisions...

I did get an Alexisonfire ticket in the end - as soon as the presale started this morning. Teenage Black Wizard would be very happy about this.

22/3 Kamelot/Evergrey/Visions of Atlantis, Birmingham
24/3 Cellar Darling, Birmingham
26/3 Skarlett Riot, Oxford
29/3 The Lounge Kittens, London
16/4 Avantasia, London
1/6 Alexisonfire, London
6/6 Symphony X, London

5/8 Iron Maiden, Montreal
8-11/8 Scorpions Sabaton, Anthrax, Powerwolf, Soilwork etc. @ Bloodstock Festival
28/9 Ancient Bards, Birmingham
25/11 Halestorm, Nottingham

This tour also got announced this morning, something that will amuse the Maidenfans who have been around for the last few years and spent a bit of time in chat...

I need to decide if I want to go to this. I'll be seeing Slayer once this year, but Slash was not coming anywhere close otherwise (though I correctly suspected he would be at Heavy Montreal given the placement of the tour dates). Anthrax would be great, I wouldn't mind seeing Clutch, Gamma Ray, Beartooth, or Metal Church. My buddy's huge into Beast in Black. So we'll see.

Saw Night Ranger last night and what a rock performance! Songs from 1st 3 cds & last 2 (& yes the new material is good). Sounded like they hadn't aged a day! Because of past band affiliations, they played some very well received covers: Keri was in Alice Cooper for 9 years (School's Out), Jack was in Damn Yankees (several), & Brad was Ozzy's 1st guitarist after Randy died (Crazy Train). Speaking of Brad, all his solos last night (including Crazy Train) were note for note perfect.

Because the drummer Kelly sings lead on a few songs, it was cool the way his drums are sideways and up front on the right. Amazing crowd response & participation. Definitely recommend catching a show from these guys.

Just saw Wilderun on Weds night in a smaller venue with maybe 75 people in attendance. They fucking slayed. More people need to be listening.

Thanks! Never heard of them but love the progression! Bad news is they just played TX few weeks ago so I just missed them!

My list of bands most seen is:

18 Iron Maiden
9 Megadave
8 Gojira (soon to be 9)
7 Dream Theater (hopefully soon to be 8)
6 Sabaton (soon to be 7), As I Lay Dying (doubt I'll see again)
5 Anthrax, Skarlett Riot (both soon to be 6)

Some of these are just because they play every festival ever and support other bands. The Raven Age will soon be up at 5 too. :(
