So AVF,

What concerts have you been to recently, or are going to soon?

I'm seeing this lot tonight. The warm up act is Public Enemy :)

Got tickets for The Stone Roses at the Etihad next summer. Can't wait for that one.

The last one was Adam Ant playing the Dirk Wears White Sox album. The next one is Adam Ant playing the Kings of the Wild Frontier album. Previous concerts were Adam Ant. I only like Adam Ant :D

Last week it was James Morrison and a couple of weeks prior to that it was Art Garfunkel. Jealous of you guys going to see Mumfords, when I tried to book all I got was redirection to those theiving b*****ds at Get me in.

Seen Art a few years ago in Glasgow and thought he was looking pretty old then, great gig though.

As for Mumfords, this will be our fourth time and still looking forward to seeing the band live where they excel. I would recommend signing up to their site, you usually get advance notice of gigs and purchasing options. I presume you know they're doing Hyde Park next year?

Mumford & Sons to headline Hyde Park in London in July

Not really my thing but my missus recently went to see Scouting For Girls and said they were fantastic! She was buzzing for days!

Saw the Aberdeen leg on Sunday.

Fourth time I've seen PE - good as ever but have to admit The Prodigy blew them away.

Adam and the ants was my first ever gig. Ice House in Grimsby circa 1981ish. Just as they had their first number one so gig already booked. Last one was Maroon 5 supported by Robin Thicke and both voices were flawless. That was a while ago though I tend to go to local pubs and see up and coming bands/singers as the prices these days are extortionate.
Sorry I forgot I went to see Tom Jones at Market Rasen race course in August (on after the races) and I was in total awe, close to tears on the Elvis song as I know from interviews they were quite close. His voice is better now than 50 years ago.

Faithless - at Alexandra Palace Last Saturday. Epic SHow. My feet and legs hurt the next day from non stop dancing.

Went to see Bill Bailey last night in the local leisure centre!

No allocated seating, so just by getting there @ 6.30 for an 8.00 start, we got to sit in the front row, right in the middle :)

To say they had essentially built a venue in a sports hall, the sound was very good indeed. A Meyer Sound Leopard curvilinear array with matched front fills - which is about as good as it gets at the moment was used and the engineer did a very fine job of the mix.

He really is a very talented bloke that Bill Bailey. The death metal version of Bob the Builder will live with me for many years...
