Waiting to see New Order drop a few in at this rate!

All the autumn and Winter Tours Dates are now being released and I've just got tickets for

Wire. Stockton Georgian Theatre
Sparks. Manchester Ritz
Alison Moyet. York Barbican

ABC. Gateshead Sage

Daren't book anymore as I'm waiting for a certain Liverpool band to get their bloody fingers out...
I'd write and tell you that I've burnt them all.

But you never send me your address and I've.

I've kept them anyway.

Are you ready for some more?
Gallops (10th May in Glasgow). An instrumental electronica soundscapes band that have recently reformed. Yes, I did not know they had gone away either. An experiment!
Emerald Sunday (19th May in Dundee). They have just released their third album. A good solid rock band and this is their album launch gig
Jen Stevens (25th May in South Shields). She is releasing her debut solo album = an unmissable launch gig
False Friends (18th July in Glasgow). Their debut headline gig at King Tut's. Now that is a treat and a half
My Life Story (12th August in Glasgow). They are such a great live band. They are on the same bill as a host of other 90s bands (who are so not my taste) but I can suffer them for MLS
My Life Story (18th August in Wakefield). The day before the OMD gig in the middle of Englandshire
Midgey-poos; The non-religious Christians and wee Clare Grogan's Altered Images (10th October in Glasgow). Three 80s bands playing on Midge's birthday. He is doing his Electronia thing so no doubt padding the whole set with Ultravox's finest songs - I am not complaining

Just been to see
The Nightingales in Middlesbrough. Great fun band totally off the wall. Been on the go since 79/80 and they escaped my radar. A mix of The Fall, B52's and Half Man Half Biscuit.

Tickets for
Brix Smith and the Extricated. Stockton Georgian Theatre
Public Service Broadcasting. Newcastle Engine Room
Blancmange. Newcastle Engine Room

Ha!! I know that you know that I also like Sheppard and I've seen them a couple of times in LA, but I also know that Sheppard is opening for Little Mix!!! Are you going to stay after the opener and catch a bit of Little Mix, too??!! :D

To stay on topic:
I have tickets for
July 29th OMD in LA
Sept 1: Wang Chung and Cutting Crew
Sept 15: Against Me in Pomona (I love to watch Atom Willard play drums <3 )
Sept 27: Alison Moyet at the Fonda
Sept 30: Misterwives

September is going to be a busy month!
I dance about ships and airplanes.

Well, luckily this is Sheppard (see, I can spell their name correctly - I fixed it in my prior post now) playing their own gig rather than support for Little Mix. You are confusing this Glasgow gig with their one in Dundee two days later but maybe alanconnor is going to that one ...

Moving on; a couple more
The Maine (10th September in Glasgow). They play King Tuts Wah Wah Hut and it is a tiny venue. I am so pleased to have grabbed a ticket for that before it sells out.
The Slow Readers Club (9th December in Glasgow). Likewise playing King Tuts Wah Wah Hut and I do like seeing them live. A really good live band with excellent songs

I was in Salford on a course last week and mentioned to my colleague that Kraftwerk were playing the Bridgewater Hall on Monday night.

Anyway it was just after 6 when we got the tram into Manchester and I just said' I'll pop into the box office' when we were passing just on the off chance. Well I asked if they had 2 seats together anywhere to be told....' 2 returns just comeback on the floor Row G 20 and 21'....7 rows from the front bang centre.
I could not get my credit card out fast enough.
Less than 2 hours later watching Kraftwerk take us on an amazing journey accompanied by the superb 3D light show was just breath-taking. The effects have moved on from the last 3D show I saw at the Manchester Velodrome (we chatted to Andy on the way out who was there doing a review for Radio) and it was just a perfect night.
I'd write and tell you that I've burnt them all.
