RICK WAKEMAN

Rick Wakeman, Solihull Arts Complex, Thursday 11th February 2016

“Am I looking through rose-tinted glasses, or are we the youngest people here?” whispered my better half looking out among the greying flock being herded to their seats. Not quite, thought I when young singer/songwriter Prash Gor bounced on stage with his battered acoustic guitar. The Leicester lad then proceeds to sing around half a dozen songs, a number about ...

Dream Theater present The Astonishing live at London Palladium

London’s West End is full of prog-hunters on this cold and chilling February weekday evening. Jeff Wayne’s “Musical Version of The War of the Worlds” is packing the punters in over at the Dominion. But we’re going to see something far more exciting than that. Have seventeen years really flown-past-us since DREAM THEATER bestowed upon us Scenes from a Memory? ...

Bowling For Soup

Live Review: Bowling For Soup, O2 Academy, Newcastle

If you don’t remember Bowling For Soup the first time around, they came to attention in the surreal punk-pop revival in the late 90s/early 00s along with Blink 182, New Found Glory and Good Charlotte. The good news is a lot of these bands are still around  (NFG,Jimmy Eat World) and for some it has been a bit of a ...

Helloween

Live Review: Helloween, Rage, COP UK

We arrived early to the old and battered building of the O2 Forum is Kentish town.
