Massive Attack this Thursday, looking forward to it despite the reviews and the fact that Delj doesn't enjoy playing live.

Fleece the fans at Earls Court sort of thing. Doing lots of Beatles numbers, I believe. Went to see him about 8 years ago at Wembley and was amazed how good he was live, so thought I'd go to see him again.

I would love to see Paul McCartney, Richard. Regardless of peoples' views of him and his post-Beatles music, he is still a legend of 20th Century music.

I have heard his live album from his US tour last year and half of his set-list was made up of Betles tracks. It should be a great occassion. Enjoy.

McCartney's playing Red Square at the end of May, the first time he's ever played (or even been to) Russia. Causing a major stir around here, as for years and years the Beatles were one of very few Western bands people got to hear, so the place is teeming with fanatics. Guess I might go along to see if it conjures up a whiff of iron curtain karma.

Heck, I'm pleased with that last sentence there.

Thank you for agreeing with me. My son thought I was very harsh.

Kerrang reckoned that there were some old fogeys at the gig on Friday that were looking into their lager saying "this ain't music" when Whirlwind Heat were on. I can happily hold my head up and own up to this one. They were a pathetic joke - at least Antiproduct mean to come across as a wind-up.

I really recommend that people keep an eye on the Concorde2 venue as they appear to get all of the upcoming bands and its usually less than a tenner.

For example, OK Go are on in June and well worth checking out!

I'm off to see him Monday nite at Earls Court too, the fact that he is on for two & a half hours & playing loads of Beatles tracks swung it for me!!

Saw Coldplay last nite at Earls Court, superb performance from them too

Got my tickets to see Dave Gahan at Shepheard's Bush empire on the 10th July through today.

Looking forward to it!

I'm going to miss both those gigs, which is a shame as Cat Power aren't playing in Spain. Just saw a video of Chan performing live on Letterman, just her and a piano, lovely if incongruous.

I would be interseted to hear any feedback from the McCartney gigs.

He is playing Dublin in May, and I am undecided whether to go or not.

Only just found this thread!

Went to see Faithless late last year and they were superb - shame Dido didn't make an appearance though.

This year I have been to see Avril Lavigne (another superb performance) and Coldplay at Earls Court. ColdPlay were ok....their last two songs made up for an overall average display IMO. Feeder, who were the warm up band, put on a much better performance! Would love to see them on their own.

Since the thread also suggests reviews, I'll just say that Paul McCartney was superb last night. Played for over two and a half hours, including one section of 45 minutes on his own. That guy has written (o.K. many of them along with John Lennon) SO much great music, that I came away feeling he could have done another 2 1/2 hours and still not got through all his hits.

It's always difficult to get a feeling for musicianship in big arena concerts, but the band seemed tight and played well together, although the tour has been going for several months so I guess they should be.

We had pretty poor seats, but the use of multiple large screens in these big tours nowadays makes the spectacle so much better anyway. Previous McCartney tours have made big use of sets that go up, down & spin, multiple backdrops and huge, moving, lighting rigs. The use of multiple video screens has reduced the needs for such technology (which is very expensive to build and to tour), and the screens themselves proved much of the spectacle, which was hugely impressive, although somehow, it doesn't have the impact of big physical objects moving and a huge light show - dare I say it, but it seems a somewhat lazy way of making the spectacle, impressive though the images undoubtedly are.

That's it from the AOR stadium concerts correspondant to this thread until I report back from the Stones concert in August. Obviously I'll let you all know Quo's dates when they're announced ....

P.S. ammiller - DEFINITELY go to see him on Dublin if you can. I guarantee you'll have a good time.

P.P.S. Oryol, how difficult would it be to get a ticket for the Red Square concert ? In an over-excited (and somewhat pished) state last night, I floated the idea with the wife of popping out there to see what I'm sure will be an awesome evening.

We put out the new album in Spain - it's pretty good overall with a couple of very good songs. He did a solo show for us and that was most enjoyable.
