I knew I was never going to see Lee Aaron unless I travelled to Canada. I went there in 2010, but she was doing no local shows. A year later she performed her first gig on Swedish Soil when she performed at Sweden Rock Festival.
Lee Aaron came to the UK twice within a 12 month period. When she came to Camden Town in July 2017, I was front row and centre.
Lee Aaron was hitting on me throughout the gig and bloody well getting so close to whacking me in the head with a swinging microphone!
I had been a fan of this band since 2006. I loved all the Joey lead albums and never bothered with the John Bush era. Seeing Anthrax playing “Among the Living” in full was a great way to celebrate the record’s 30th Birthday
Apart from getting a bloody nose (when the back of some guys head whacked me), it was an OK show
I first heard of Toxik back in 2008 when I met the Bennett twins in Utopia Records in Sydney. They introduced me to Toxik. 9 years later I was seeing this band in Camden Town.
It had been well over 8 years since I ever listened to “Think Tank” or “World Circus”. I never thought I would get to see them live. I just assumed they had given up hope of a reunion as their personal lives were busy.
Even though I was punched outside of Broad Street by 2 cunts in Birmingham, seeing Dream Theater for the 4th time in less than 10 years was magnificent. They played the whole “Images and Words” album in full as well as “A Change of Season” for the encore.
I just found the concept of a SIT DOWN Dream Theater concert as SHIT and it was kinda sad they had no use of visual projected on the screen.
I’m just glad I didn’t wait 5 years to see Dream Theater again. If I wasn’t living in the UK, I would have seen them in Australia.
The sound from Scotts Microphone was shit, there was no WINO in the band, but what more could I ask for. I was finnaly seeing this band as I missed out on seeing them in 2013 due to wankers from St.Michael’s Catholic Church Baulkham Hills who hounded me to help them on Friday night instead of seeing this band.
The first time I had seen Armored Saint in Sydney, I wasn’t that interested. When I saw them in London in 2015, I was busy writing up Death Angel’s gig review as THE SAINT sang.
This time Armored Saint came to Birmingham for the first time ever and treated us to a LONG setlist and tons of energy from John Bush.
I had been waiting for over 7 years to see this band. 3 of its original members had passed on within 6 years. But seeing Dave Meniketti play music for 2 hours with 3 young blokes really did bring justice to Y&T back catalog.
It was special that I saw Y&T in Cambridge instead of London as I spent some quality time with my cousin Lesley before the gig.
