Post Lockdown
« on: November 09, 2021, 12:03:07 AM »
As bands are beginning to tour again, I just wondered which bands people have seen, post-covid - and what their thoughts were.  I have seen:
John Lydon - not a gig, but a book promo chat - very honest, especially about his wife's Alzheimer's - and led the audience in singing ABBA !
Tom Robinson, on his "first gig since 2019" and, other than a minor gremlin with the electronics "comes from storing the amp in a garage for 2 years" excellent - the lay-off has improved his vocals
Wishbone Ash - a touchy subject to some Man-fans, but "Phoenix rising" was  excellent - and Mark Abrahams has made the sound "heavier" - I missed the name of the drummer who was standing-in because Joe Crabtree had Covid, but he was also very impressive. Andy Powell's vocals also seemed better than last time I saw them - again possibly because of the lay-off - and he is 71 now

Malcolm Morley  - just a wonderful evening
Jim Cregan - Rod Stewart without the posing and band being given their head.
Martin Turner - Pilgrimage + the usual WA standards.  Well played sir.
To my shame I missed out on Focus -another regret to add to a long list.

Upcoming: Son of Man etc., Rollin Stoned and Christmas Carols...

On top of that I've been to about four classical concerts with the Scottish Symphony Orchestra with another bunch coming up over the next four Thursdays.

Coming up - Son Of Man, Martin Turner, Skids/Big Country and maybe a joint Who/SAHB tribute night.

And then it'll be Christmas.

Got through all that keeping clear of infection.  I do test myself regularly as a matter of course.

So,Allan,how was Genesis?How was Steve Hackett?Nick Lowe??I am in the East of France and there has been nowt much happening here gig wise since Covid.Funnily enough,the last gig I went to was in 2020 and it was a week before France went into lockdown --it was Ray Wilson presenting his own Genesis show.He doesn't tour in the UK I think.He put on a great show
