BLUESFEST 2013

opportunity for visitors to see the Royal Albert Hall host an event in this way.

Programme
TUESDAY 29 OCTOBER

Auditorium, 7pm: Tedeschi Trucks Band Mavis Staples & her Band
Daytime Stroller: Ray Gelato Giants Oli Brown Band Matt Schofield Band Smoove & Turrell Nate James (Basement Bar - 14:00-15:00 Oli Brown Band, 15:15-16:15 Matt Schofield Band)

I'm no fan of the RAH. I hope the tickets are priced reasonably, or there could be a lot of empty seats (including mine!).

The Daytime Strollers sound like a steal!




The 29th could be quite a good day of music, plus I'm guaranteed to be able to get the last train without too much of a rush. As Gordon says, it's all down to the price for me too and the thought of Mavis singing with TTB (can't see that not happening) would be awesome, and break the (IMHO) monotiny of ST's voice.

Trouble is I'm skint and a day off and train tix, concert tix, food, beers, could be too much at the moment.

Edit: Headline Acts start at 30, but..... I've had a look at the price range on the RAH site and a Turkish Singer Sezen Asku start at 30 and then its up to 90 with the arena being 75. Count me out if it's these sorts of prices. 10 bargain for the stroller tix, though, but does it mean I need to hire one?

What's the name of that pub in the mews, Colin?

O2 presale starts Weds 9:00am

That's just stupid pricing. Wouldn't pay 135 for any single concert ticket. Going to be one very empty RAH!

moray and I were invited to a Bluesfest launch party last week where everything was to be announced.
At the last minute (the day before!) the "launch party" was cancelled!.. sounds like the organisation is a shambles and I agree the RAH is a terrible place to have such an event.Sounds like someone is trying to make big bucks out of this but I reckon it could be a bit empty... (another reason for TTB not to bother coming back to the UK) I'm going ot the box office on Friday to try and get TTB tickets.. cant afford to pay silly money either. The 10 stroller tickets sound good though.

Not for me either ... truth be told I actually preferred dTb to TTB ... but even so if they had been playing Shepherd's Bush at 25 as usual I would have gone to see them again ...

I paid 50 to be in Row 6 for Bonnie Raitt at the RAH last month ... but this morning I was quoted 135 for Row 3 to see TTB or 51 for rear arena / stalls ... not happy with either of those ... much as I love Derek I will have to pass this time ...

Ludicrous format at ridiculous prices in a crap venue.

I'm going to fill my boots with Daily Stroller tickets instead (unless the whole thing is cancelled).

Think folk are starting to rebel a bit against these sort of prices. I've just had a letter from the Colston Hall (Bristol) telling me how wonderful CS&N are and hurry along to buy tickets. They've been on sale for a good couple of months and the 75 top price is, I would suggest, proving a step too far for many. It only holds around 1800 I think and others like the Doobies, Ray Lamontagne, Counting Crows, Paul Weller, Roger Daltrey have all played to sell-out crowds with what I think is a realistic top price of around 35-45 for this venue. Lamontagne was a very reasonable 19.

Oct 25th they're in Kentucky, Rip-Aff Hall Oct 29th and November 1st in North Carolina, so would certainly seem like a one-aff.

I haven't been to the RAH since I saw Joe Bonamassa four years ago.

That was a joke with a horn section and guest - Paul Jones - who were inaudible. It would take a lot to entice me back and these prices don't do it for me.

Buy North Mississippi Allstars at the 100 Club instead (23 October, 16.50 + booking fee).

Hi Darren! I hope you are keeping well.

44.80 got me two Daytime Stroller tickets for each of the 29th (Oli Brown, Matt Schofield) and 31st (Royal Southern Brotherhood, Georgie Fame).

That works for me!

It you fancy some music with some nice food and music, my band The Snakeoil Rattlers will be playing at Big Red in Holloway on Friday 2nd August for a show with good mates and Southern rockers Medicine Hat. It's Free entry, so no pension problems, and there's going to be a special Southern cocktail and shots menu. Plus BBQ, gumbo and alligator tacos. Expect the show to start at 8pm. Won't be a late one so no problems with the last tube.

Andy Fraser is playing Bolton tonight. I will be there along with a couple of friends to se one of the greatest bass players out there.

How was Andy Fraser?

Just listening to some Mr Big live. For a very brief period - 1969-71 - Free were probably the most exciting British Blues band around.

I never saw them live. In fact, I see that their only Glasgow Apollo performance was in 1972 ("The Free" - 40p admission - 7 song set!) by which time they were living on borrowed time (literally, in Kossoff's case).

Anyone see them live? I bet Manitou did!

The Andy Fraser Band where excellent last night. The venue just outside Bolton in a little village called Bromley Cross was a small pub with a larger room off to the side with a little stage at one end. Malcolm Bruce, son of Jack was supporting, he played a nice 40 minute acoustic set with his daughter appearing for the last 2 songs.

The AFB came onstage at 10.15 and finished at 11.45, they went straight into All Right Now, probably played first to stop the crowd shouting for it all night I suppose. He had a young guy called Tobi playing guitar and singing, and semi-legendary Chris Spedding on lead guitar. I only caught the drummers first name which was Chris. As well as the aformentioned track they also played The Stealer, Little Bit Of Love and Mr. Big. They played 2 John Mayer songs, and the rest of the set was made up of songs recorded by Tobi himself.

Andy himself looked to be fit and healthy and was laughing and joking with the crowd in between songs.

Overall I really enjoyed the show and it was nice to get up close and personal with one of my all time favourites for the first time.

Sounds good!

Andy must be relatively young - he was only 16 or 17 when Free were at their peak. Makes it even more creditable how well he played.

I would have said that he didn't play on the record of Little Bit Of Love. I thought that was in the Tetsu phase. May be wrong though.

As for "Tobi" - wasn't Toby the name of AF's post-Free band?!
