Never mind the petrol… what kind of ticket costs do you have!!?? If you keep records, I'd love to see how much the annual outlay is. My mind boggles at the thought.

I do keep meticulous records of every concert that I go to, mainly because I would forget otherwise. Cost wise, it is now averaging out at around £15 per gig and that, of course includes the ridiculous service fees, per item fees and delivery fees that ticket sites feel the need to charge. This is all way over and above the actual ticket price, of which barely half would actually go to the main band themselves. I mean, how on earth can TicketMaster justify the same price to email you an e-ticket as they charge to mail the physical ticket to you?

Wherever possible I try to buy a ticket direct from the band on their BigCartel site.

But, apart from travel there and back, that is pretty much my only costs. I don't have a spouse that I have to buy a second ticket for and I don't drink when there because I drive to pretty much every gig. So, my costs are low in comparison to the people who put on Facebook how they would love to go to a gig but they have no-one to go with or they have to work the next day so cannot get blootered!

Interestingly, my first every gig was Ultravox at the Edinburgh Odeon on 8th December 1980. The ticket cost £2.50. *sigh* those were the days

I seethe with envy at your Ultravox gig in 1980! I wanted to see them in October 1980 but they were 90 miles away in a nearby city and neither I nor any friends drove at the time. That was my only chance to see Ultravox in America.

Time for an updated schedule. But, before I do, a wee update on who I had planned to see in my last update and what actually happened.
- Hit The North (Newcastle) (5 May) I indeed forewent this for the Stag And Dagger festival in Glasgow and it was the right move
- Charlotte (6 May at Old Fruitmarket, Glasgow) was postponed to mid-July
- The Beths (13 May at Mash House, Edinburgh) I decided not to go to this and went to see Alex Lahey in Glasgow instead
- The Beths (14 May at G2, Glasgow) their support band - Hans Pucket - packed up, shifted across the road and played a free headline gig in Broadcast so I went to that after The Beths!
- Zoee (26 May at La Belle Angele, Edinburgh) was cancelled
- Manoeuvres (8 June at O2 Academy, Glasgow) was cancelled
- The Skids (8 June at O2 Academy Newcastle, Newcastle) I could not go due to parental visiting in the afternoon so I went to see Voicex in Edinburgh instead. Check them out, They contain the guitarist from The Scars - remember them?
- Strange Behavours festival (9th to 29th) (9 June at Tollbooth, Stirling) I just could not go to any of the three events they had scattered around
- Rosie Bans (15 June at Flying Duck, Glasgow) I could not time it to see her because her set clashed with me seeing The Skids, Big Country and Kim Wilde at Dalkeith, so I went to a 3 local bands’ gig later that evening in Edinburgh, as I do
- Ruts DC & The Stranglers (29 June at Kelvingrove Bandstand, Glasgow) I decided not to go and I went to Dunfermline to see a local band put on a superb show for their single launch (Oskar Braves)

- and ACTORS (21 June at Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh) is one of my top ten gigs this year!

The Armoury Show (17 October at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut, Glasgow)

Well, this is an interesting one. For starters, I last saw The Armoury Show live in November 1985, so that makes it a near 34 year gap. But, sadly, John McGeogh is no longer with us. So, what could the line-up be? After all, the classic line-up was Richard Jobson, John McGeogh, John Doyle and Russell Webb. Richard did promise this band would return this year. Is this really it?

Then the plot thickens. The listing is actually billed as "Armory Show" not "The Armoury Show" and a wee search on Facebook shows that Russell Webb knows nothing about this, admittedly a year ago but he has been quiet about it since. Mind you, he seems to be in the same camp as Rusty Egan who thinks that any resurrection of a former band that he was in, without him being asked to join again, is bad and should be banned.

I suspect that Richard is not permitted to use the full name, hence the truncated re-spelling and Bruce Watson has hinted that he might be part of the band too. No surprise there but that will be three related bands he is in now. I have bought a ticket but the gig clashes with two others I wish to see that day. Hmm, decision, decisions.

Maybe this gig might just not happen - let's see

From what I read, Rusty Egan was involved with the return of Visage [Mk III/IV?] in 2013 but he could not agree to terms with the financials, so he walked out on his own two feet. Not before providing the masterstroke that ensured the new Visage project would be very memorable; suggesting and securing the guitar of Robin Simon. It was after this happened that he took to belittling from the sidelines. Very bad form. I felt he was being dishonest about the lack of merit in the band, whom I found glorious. Against my suspicions up front, by the way.

End of 2019; you know what that means. Well, I did not expect 2019 to beat 2014's record of 268 gigs, but it did!

Number of gigs 277, seeing 761 performances

Great acts I saw multiple times
Medicine Cabinet (12)
Freakwave (10)
swim school (9)
Thyla (8)
Calva Louise (7)
Goodnight Louisa (6)
Lizzie Reid (6)
OMD (6)
Quotes Of The Dead (6)
The Ninth Wave (6)

Popular venues for gigs
98 bands across 31 gigs at King Tut's Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow
49 bands across 19 gigs at Sneaky Pete's in Edinburgh
42 bands across 17 gigs at Broadcast in Glasgow
27 bands across 9 gigs at Stereo Café Bar in Glasgow
24 bands across 8 gigs at Mash House in Edinburgh

Some gigs of note were
KISS playing their End Of the Road tour. Spectacular
ACTORS playing their first UK tour. The Edinburgh gig was especially good
OMD on their 40th Anniversary tour. A band well on top of their game
Midge Ure playing choice Visage cuts and the entire Vienna album. Fantastic and it was made better by having Rusty Egan supporting
Armory Show (formerly known as The Armoury Show) resurrected by Richard Jobson (edited to spell his surname correctly) and astounding to see them again after 33 years!

And the biggest disappointments? Just the one
Marina, now without her Diamonds and she just sings along to backing tracks. That is karaoke

How many bands or artists did I meet afterwards?
167 (grabbing every chance I could to thank them for their gigs)

Some first time ever sees (after knowing about them for some or for many years)
Björn Again
Boney M
Bow Wow Wow's Annabella
Chantel McGregor
Dr. Feelgood
Freya Ridings
Holy Wars
Leo Sayer
Lisa Stansfield
Maisie Peters
Newton Faulkner
Peter Coyle ex Lotus Eaters
Rusty Egan
Spare Snare
Tears For Fears
Then Jerico
