I thought I might go for The Borderline show as I saw him there on the way up (as well as at other small venues).

It turns out admission is subject to purchase of VIP tickets for all four shows at a cost of £1,500! This entitles you to various other fripperies which I gave up reading in some disgust.

Thanks Joe but I'll spend my £1,500 at a hundred gigs by artists who are still grounded.

"VIP packages will include concert access and additional Joe Bonamassa exclusive content:

The Borderline, London - VIP ticket only access to this capacity reduced show.
O2 Shepherds Bush Empire (best seat in the house, plus access to exclusive VIP bar).
HMV Hammersmith Apollo (best seat in the house).
Royal Albert Hall (best seat in the house, plus 3 course meal, wine & champagne).
Each VIP ticket will also include a £250 very special and limited edition high quality collectable lithograph personally autographed by Joe.
£250 shopping spree at the Joe Bonamassa store with each ticket purchased.
VIP ticket holders also will receive a limited edition golden tour laminate that entitles them to access to the exclusive bar, plus special VIP treatment."

That actually makes me feel physically sick.

Tom Petty last night in the O2 in Dublin kicked ass.

Totally in the spirit of the blues, eh?

Still listen to him, but after seing his pathetic posturing at Colston Hall a few years back, I wouldn't bother going to a show again unless BCC tour at reasonable prices.

Why couldn't we have had wall-to-wall coverage of festivals back in the day when the music was quality?

Most contemporary music is utter pants. It's depressing to watch the likes of the IoW Festival and see what passes for mass popular music.

To answer my own question, we didn't have hundreds of satellite tv channels and the internet. We had three channels and OGWT as a sop...

Saw the Mississippi Mudbloods in Sevenoaks tonight.

Ian Siegal, Cody and Luther Dickinson, and Alvin Youngblood Hart. LD and AYH swapped guitar and bass duties.

The sound in the venue wasn't great but the overall feel was very dense, swampy blues with oodles of slide guitar by LD and IS. I'm not a huge Siegal fan but I'd say this is the best setting I've seen him in.

Recommended.

They continue at Amstelveen (29/6), Enschede (30/6), Verviers (2/7), London O2 Academy Islington (4/7), Newcastle Cluny (5/7), The Met, Bury (6/7) and Burton Agnes Jazz Festival (7/7).

I saw these gigs advertised last week, I will be at the Manchester show, a nice updated and modernised venue just up the road from the Manchester Arena.

Larry and band were superb. Could have listened for much longer but he inserted a Q & A with the audience into the second set which killed the ambience (imagine guitar geeks discussing Dombeys* or something!). He doesn't seem to rate any other contemporary players very highly.

So... On to the Bridge! Do we expect a Blues set as it's the Bluesfest? Seemingly, Tom Jones and Van Morrison did Blues-based sets. Or the standard Mule mix?


* Dumbles, apparently!

I'm seeing them in Newcastle tomorrow Gordon. Looking forward to it. I don't know anything about Siegal but I've seen NMAS and AYH a couple of times each. Was wondering who would be handling bass duties. Also Alejandro Escovedo at the same venue on Friday, the excellent Cluny!

Funking hell! Larry Carlton, Warren Haynes, Elliot Randall, Bernie Marden, Mick Taylor, Matt Schofield and Sus Rollins (only kidding!) in the space of four days.

I think I may have died and gone to guitar heaven!
