Honeytribe also playing Newcastle, Wolverhampton, Birmingham and Manchester. Their myspace site also states a date in "Cardiff, England" which will ensure there's a welcome in the valleys!!!! Thursday in Cardiff or Sunday in London or both? Hopefully not the Astoria2.

Fred Tackett and Paul Barrerre playing acoustic duo date 13 Dec in Bristol, so I'm assuming that's part of a tour. And I'll probably come along to Indigo2 Little Feat gig on 11 July.

Matt Schofield is playing Devizes festival on 20 June, so hopefully will catch up with Martyn and his brother (who's name totally escapes me - sorry!) as that's their hometown.

Got tix for Joe B in Bristol in November, so some stuff to look forward to (as well as Costello/Springsteen/Crowded House in June)

Joe Boanmassa's last UK tour t-shirts had "Cardiff, England" too!

At least they had Glasgow in Scotland!

Nice little run of shows coming up, Jim!

I thought Cardiff was in England ... isn't Wales a "Principality" of England and not a country in it's own right ... unlike Scotland and Ireland

Robert Randolph at the Borderline Friday 27 June.

This is the evening before the band plays Hyde Park in support of Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow etc.

Robert's website shows venue as The Garage but it is definitely the Borderline. Only 13.50 + fees.

Pillars of Hercules anyone!!!!

Still thinking about going to Hyde Park. But this is very tempting!

Edit: Might be a stretch as I'm in Liverpool to see Elvis Costello with the Liverpool Symphony Orch on Weds/Thurs that week. Never been to Liverpool (apart from Goodison for a Bristol Rovers game (we won on penalties!) so I'm staying for a couple of days and it's not payday till the following Monday.

anyone here going to see Santana at the 02?
Hoping the "special guests" are going to be good (shame it's not going to be Derek!)

Glad to see there are a few Matt Schofield fans on here, fantastic guitar player, seen him loads of times always a good show.

Mmh, don't get too excited, its Beverly Knight! Bought a ticket early on when rumours were rife about dTb as support. I might make the trip but each journey/hotel from Jersey tends to be circa 200. A whole bunch of money but usually worth it.
Enjoyed Steve Winwood at the Scala last week.

I know about Beverly knight
However her name has disappeared from the TM site , so hopefully she wont show!
I was hoping Sheryl Crow might be there as she is on the Santana bill in Paris.

Yeah, I'll be up for Robert Randolph... Pillars it is then! Got your package yesterday Colin, Cheers! Listening to Gregg as I type this. Cracking!
Went to see Springsteen at the "New Highbury Library" last night. What a truly wonderful show! Hate stadium gigs usually, but if any artist can turn a stadium into something approaching an intimate venue it's Bruce.
Check oot this setlist.

May 30, 2008
London, England
Emirates Stadium

Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out { lyrics }
Radio Nowhere { lyrics }
The Ties That Bind { lyrics }
Lonesome Day { lyrics }
The Promised Land { lyrics }
Magic { lyrics }
Atlantic City { lyrics }
Reason To Believe { lyrics }
Candy's Room { lyrics }
Prove It All Night { lyrics }
Because The Night { lyrics }
Working On The Highway { lyrics }
Cadillac Ranch { lyrics }
Livin' In The Future { lyrics }
Mary's Place { lyrics }
Waitin' On A Sunny Day { lyrics }
Point Blank { lyrics }
Devil's Arcade { lyrics }
The Rising { lyrics }
Last To Die { lyrics }
Long Walk Home { lyrics }
Badlands { lyrics }

Thunder Road { lyrics }
Born To Run { lyrics }
Glory Days { lyrics }
Rosalita { lyrics }
Dancing In The Dark { lyrics }
American Land { lyrics }

I know their are plenty of folk on here who have no time for Springsteen, But in my 30 odd years of gig going I have certainly never seen an artist perform with this level of passion and going back to the setlist, Nobody else in the history of popular music could play a set like this and still leave god knows how many classics on the bench for another night!...... IMHO of course!

Anyway, looks like this thread is a stayer. Nice one Gordon, We have our own thread!

Just got two tickets for the Shepherds Bush gig ... great that it is on a Saturday night so I can use the train rather than drive as I normally have to do for mid-week gigs ... O'Neill's anyone?

I suspect this is a solo tour as it is in support of his latest release ~ "Just Roll Tape: April 26th, 1968" ...

All Music Guide Review

quote:
When listening to this rather remarkable document, it becomes alarmingly clear what the post-Buffalo Springfield Stephen Stills brought to the partnership of Crosby, Stills & Nash. This 13-song set was recorded solo with an acoustic in a recording studio in 1968, preceding by a few months the first CS&N recording (he bribed a recording engineer after a Judy Collins session). According to Stills' brief liner notes, the tape had been lost for nearly 40 years, until the release of this edition. Meaning, of course, that these versions of these songs haven't been widely available on the bootleg circuit, either. The tracks contain early versions of cuts recorded in the trio such as "Suite: Judy Blues Eyes," "Helplessly Hoping," and "Wooden Ships." But these are near the very end of the collection. There are also a number of cuts here that Stills recorded on his solo records such as "Black Queen," from his self-titled debut, "Change Partners" and "Know You Got to Run" from Two Originals, "So Begins the Task" from Manassas, and even a very earlier and much longer version of "Treetop Flyer" with Stills playing dobro. In addition to the better-known material are the haunting "The Doctor Will See You Now," the melancholy yet tender melodrama of "Dreaming of Snakes," and "Judy," a short tune that is, coincidentally and perhaps, a precursor to the "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes." These are demos, unpolished, unfinished, sketches -- albeit most of them fully realized -- of classic material. It's unexplainable as to why some of the unreleased material didn't ultimately make it onto finished records: quality is not the issue. The sound is a little distorted and uneven but the quality is very good considering this tape sat basically neglected for nearly four decades. Sadly, the sheer quality of the material, even in this raw state, also brings into the glaring light of day the fact that Stills is now but a ghost of his former self creatively. His reunion appearances with CS&N and CSN&Y, and latter recordings reveal his songwriting well to be run dry. One has to wonder if he could ever again be so inspired and what it might take. (Many still wonder what inspired Dylan to scale the heights once more after a long period of lackluster recordings.) Nonetheless, Stills' lack of good material in later years doesn't diminish his lasting contribution. The work from those early years is so substantial that his songs remain a watermark for anyone who aspires to be a songwriter. [A U.K. version of the CD was also released.] ~ Thom Jurek, All Music Guide

I just picked up the CD this morning and have just finished listening to it ... excellent stuff for sure. It was like opening the door to an old friend that you had not seen for 40 years ... and you are right that it does remind you of just what an integral part of CSN he was ... pure nostalgia at its best ... if the concert in October is anything like this then I will be well happy!!!

Won't be joining you guys for Robert Randolph, Little Feat, or Stephen Stills as I've just lost my job!

Was lining something else up, but that was not happening until September, so I'll need to see what I can get in the meantime.

At least I've got Steve Earle, Crowded House, Elvis Costello and Bruce to look forward to this month, so it ain't all bad!
