Stereophonics, Edinburgh Castle, Keep the Village Alive, July 2016

Category : Blog, Gig Reviews, Music, Music Venues and Gig Guides

Our final Stereophonics gig of 2016 was Kirstys Christmas surprise. It rained, and it rained, and it rained, and then it rained some more. Brilliant gig though 🙂

Prior to the gig, we enjoyed an awesome meal and sample of whiskies in Usquabae.

This is the set list, though it’s at the very least in completely the wrong order!

Stereophonics – O2 Arena

Category : Blog, Gig Photos, Gig Reviews, Music, Music Venues and Gig Guides, Photos

My 19th Sterephonics gig was my first at the impressive O2 Arena in London. I was pretty surprised at the size of the place, but despite that it had a great atmosphere and a good sound.

The gig was great. Good songs, good visuals and some good stories. A good mix of new and old in the set list. It was great to here “I stopped to fill my car up” and “Traffic” again and all the songs off the new album have made themselves at home in the bands set list. All in all, a cracking gig.

The Killers – Nottingham Arena, Nov 3rd 2012

Category : Blog, Gig Photos, Gig Reviews, Music, Music Venues and Gig Guides

So I was lucky enough to go see the Killers at Nottingham Arena last weekend. I would say it was a solid, if a little unspectacular set from the Vegas, Nevada boys.

The new songs all sounded great live, and I’ve never heard Brandon’s voice sound so good. Nailed every single note. If I had a criticism, it would be that the band didn’t really seem that into it from the off, though they definitely fed off an enthusiastic Nottingham crowd and as the gig built to the pre-encore crescendo of the brilliant and emphatic “Runaways” and “When you were young”, you could tell they were having a good time.

I was pretty impressed with the Arena too. Our seats were great, just to the side of the stage, and the high banking of the seats meant it felt like we were sat right on top of the action.

The setlist is here and here are some photos!
