  • The Police
  • King Crimson

Bands/Artists I’ve seen or are unable to see for whatever reason since being on my list:

  • Def Leppard – Some time in 2018 – Okay I confess to being pretty drunk for this one and falling asleep, but at least I was awake for ‘Hysteria’! Great gig though from what I saw. :O)
  • ELO – Some time in 2018 – Had awesome seats in stalls in the O2, just a shame the gig was utter gash! Definitely a nostalgia driven purchase this, but never again! Sorry Dad!
  • Joe Satriani (Cliffs Pavillion 24th April 2018 – John Petrucci upstaged him imo but Satch was still excellent, just a shame about Roth being there!)
  • Arcade Fire (SSE Arena 13th April 2018 – Brilliant set and f**king loud!!)
  • OMD – Nov 2017 VIP ticket bought through PledgeMusic meaning I watched their soundcheck. Amazing gig and very emotional in places. 🙂
  • Suzanne Vega – London Paladium 2017 and an utterly glorious gig
  • Green Day (BST Hyde Park – 1st July 2017 : So bloomin’ good!)
  • Kraftwerk (Royal Albert Hall – 21st June 2017 : A…M…AZING!)
  • Primus (Roundhouse – 20th June 2017 : Lunatic genius!)

  • The Eagles – RIP Glenn Frey :O(
