I've booked - but not yet received - two tickets for the Marcus King Band at Dingwalls on Wednesday 20 September but have now booked a holiday for that week.

Any takers? Face value £18 each (I'll bear the ridiculously high service and delivery charges!).

FWIW Daryl Hall & John Oates headlining plus Chris Isaak at Bluesfest at the O2 on 28th October.

I can't see that being a big draw...but what do I know?!

Assume Mule at the IndigO2.


I thought it had already been announced that the Mule show (with Kenny Wayne Sheppard opening) was at the IndigO2 ... certainly hope so as I have a hotel booked ... just waiting for tickets to go on sale ... just what is the hold up with that?

Gov't Mule supported by Kenny Wayne Shepherd at Indigo O2 on 28th October

O2 Mobile Phone Accounts Pre-sale was today (Wed 7th) from 10am

Live Nation Accounts Pre-sale is tomorrow (Thur 8th) at 10am

General Sale is Friday 9th at 10am

Fortunately I have an O2 Phone Account so I managed to get tickets today ... and I must have been one of the first in line because I managed to get Front Row - Dead Centre on the Kings Row Balcony (a bit like the Loge at the Beacon) ... very happy with that

Anyone taking in the Kenny Wayne Shepherd gig at the Picturedrome in Holmfirth this coming Sunday, 30th July. I will be there with a couple of friends. Laurence Jones is supporting him. He's a really good young (25) blues guitarist already on his 4th solo album.

So, where are we all meeting before the O2Indigo Mule show? I get in to Paddington at 15:40, I enjoy the boatride from Westminster pier, so will be 5pm before I get to the O2. Think we need to make this a "One for Mel" night to celebrate the life of our blues brother.

Any clues as to who will be on first?

Mike and I are staying at the Holiday Inn adjacent to O2 ... plan to get to hotel by 3pm so will probably be in Arena by 4pm or so ... happy to go with the flow re venue ... "One for Mel" sounds good - maybe we should wear tie dye in his honour as that is what he always wore? ... looking forward to catching up with you all ... been way too long!

You beat me to it Colin. My train gets in just after 10.a.m, but I am looking at having a walk round a couple of second hand record shops in London for an hour or so before heading over to Greenwich. Great idea by Jim, what better way to celebrate Mels Life than at Gov't Mule gig, and knowing he will be with us in spirit. I'll dig out my tie-die.

Tie-dye it is!

I can be at the O2 mid-afternoon onwards. Doors are at 19.00.

As above, I'm a bit concerned from the billing that Mule will be on first....

An excellent show in Manchester last night. Place was packed. Both sets were as good as they have ever been, and the night was finished off with a tribute to Fats Domino with a great rendition of Ain't That a Shame. Next stop, London tomorrow.

Meeting place for IndigO2 on Saturday confirmed as the Slug and Lettuce. Most folks seem to be heading there for 5ish.

Meanwhile, I'm off across the border to Cardiff tonight for a proper two-set Mule show

Govt Mule are headlining the Blues Stage at the Ramblin' Man Fair in Maidstone on 30 June/ 1 July 2018.

It looks like you can only buy a weekend ticket for £156 + booking fee. Seems odd that you can't buy day tickets.

Last year it looks like the Blues Stage was just on the Sunday.

Wouldn't another 4th July gig at Under the Bridge be just brill?

When bands headline one of the Ramblin Man stages they don't do a London date as part of the agreement.Warren and ZZ Top both missed London out when they played the festival.

I don't know about an agreement, Darren, but you're right - he played Southampton, Milton Keynes and Holmfirth.

Thanks to Arthur Rightis, I don't do outdoor festivals anymore, so I certainly hope there isn't such an agreement in place, as London is by far the easiest of Mule's regular gig towns that I can get to ... although I guess I could do Milton Keynes and spend the night there with the concrete cows ... I eagerly await further announcements ...

Anyone who attended Warren's 2015 show at St John's, Smith Square in London might be interested in this piece in a recent edition of The Times.


April 13 2018

Richard Morrison: The closure of St Johnís, Smith Square would be a cultural tragedy

One door opens, another closes. At least potentially. In the week when the Queen Elizabeth Hall came back to life after a £38 million refurbishment, I learn that another famous London classical music venue is in such financial difficulties that unless it finds substantial new funding it will shut for ever in 2019, exactly 50 years after its rebirth as a concert hall.

The venue is St Johnís, Smith Square ó Thomas Archerís soaring quadruple-towered baroque church in the heart of Westminster. Bombed almost to oblivion in 1941, it was restored as a concert hall in the 1960s and has hosted more than 300 events a year ever since, with a special emphasis on Renaissance and baroque music, for which its luscious acoustics are perfect.

In recent years, under the inspired leadership of Richard Heason (recently voted ďconcert hall manager of the yearĒ by his peers in the industry), it has transformed its programming too, attracting good crowds and critical acclaim with imaginative festivals. And all with a staff of only eight people ó a tiny fraction of the workforce at comparable venues.

Yet St Johnís receives no regular public subsidy. Not from the Arts Council, which gives £338,000 a year to its slightly smaller competitor, the Wigmore Hall, and an extraordinary £18 million to the Southbank Centre across the river. Not from the Heritage Lottery Fund, even though it costs thousands each year to maintain this superb 290-year-old building. And not from Westminster city council, which infamously cut its own arts budget to zero five years ago.

The result is that the trust running St Johnís has been posting a deficit of about £250,000 each year on a turnover of just over £1 million. In the past this black hole was plugged by gala concerts and dinners, private donations and by dipping into reserves. Those days are over. The reserves are nearly exhausted, and historic donors (members of the Sainsbury family, for instance, who had a home in Smith Square and largely paid for St Johnís new organ in the 1990s) have made it clear that they wonít prop up the hallís finances indefinitely.

So a magnificent concert venue situated a stoneís throw from parliament and Whitehall could well close in 18 monthsí time. The symbolism of that wonít be lost on musicians and music lovers. They will see it as emblematic of the political establishmentís abject indifference to the survival of serious culture in this country. Sadly, however, I donít think more than a handful of the 20,000 politicians and civil servants who work within half a mile of St Johnís will even notice its closure ó although the dismal spectacle of a glorious grade I listed building being boarded up and left to rot on their doorsteps might embarrass them after a while. Especially as they proceed to spend £3.5 billion refurbishing the Houses of Parliament.

Would Londonís status as a world-class musical capital be endangered if St Johnís closed? Itís true that over the past 20 years other admirable middle-sized concert halls have sprung up in the capital, such as Cadogan Hall, LSO St Lukeís, Milton Court and Kings Place. None, in my view, has the same serene elegance or acoustic warmth as St Johnís, nor showcases such an eclectic mix of professional musicians and high-quality amateur and youth ensembles.

Then thereís the question of what function the building would have if it no longer housed music-making. Itís still a consecrated church, but I very much doubt that the Church of England would want it back. Westminster isnít short of grandiose temples. And turning St Johnís into some sort of museum or heritage venue would cost millions more than the comparatively small cost of sustaining it as a concert hall.

Any civilised government would step in and ensure that this national landmark flourished in the role for which it is so eminently suited. So far, however, the response to the St Johnís trustees from the governmentís arts and heritage quangos has been: ďYour problem, not ours.Ē

So now the trustees are hunting urgently for a saviour from the private sector. Or, as their chairman, Martin Smith, put it to me, for ďsome extraordinarily public-spirited, English baroque-loving, musicophile philanthropist who would be prepared to give us a minimum of £200,000 a year for at least ten yearsĒ.

Thatís a total of £2 million ó small change to some of those who live or work in London SW1. On behalf of all those English baroque-loving musicophiles who donít have that kind of money to spare, I wish St Johnís well in its bid for survival. In the 1960s Westminster councilís planners wanted to complete the Luftwaffeís work by demolishing what remained of the church and building a car park.

Instead, heroic fundraising by local people led to it being restored exactly as it was in 1728. Closing this beautiful building now ó letting it stand empty, purposeless and probably increasingly derelict ó would not only be bad for music, it would also be an indefensible betrayal of those far-sighted donors who rescued it half a century ago.

David Crosby - Shepherds Bush Empire - Sunday 16 September.

Anybody else going to this?

I was scheduled to be on holiday but it has been cancelled and I've now got a standing ticket.
