No gig that isn't "really crowded" can ever be described as a "great gig". I've been a to a few "good" gigs which were quite empty and the band was on fire, but without am audience that is crammed in tight (no empty seat in the hall) they just can't get into the "great" status...

Last two "greats" have been Runnig, one in Preston guild Hall, and the other, the same band, but outside at Scone Palace....

Sounds crowded and noisy, and no lamp posts

If you intend to go to one of these gigs with the dogs, John; then
do remember to take a lamp post with you too.

I don't like crowded concerts either but I'm willing to make an effort just to see Muse. I once went to a Wilco concert in Londen, it was in 2002, the time they weren't that famous yet. There were only like 200 people but it was one of the best concerts I ever saw. The band really had contact with the audience.

I love the Status Quo concerts that I go to. Everyone gets up and dances but the audience are all over 50, but so well behaved !!!!!

Er, why do I feel suddenly ancient .....

It's my youngest daughter's birthday today. She's 5 now. I took the afternoon off and organized a party for her. I bought her some rollerblades also. She's a bit young for that maybe but I'm sure I can teach her.

Happy Birthday to Julie's youngest.

Now, tell the truth, did your Mum buy YOU the roller blades, or did she buy them for herself....
