Yes, I recognise there's a risk that we might have another tribute band conversation quite so soon, but it would be nice if '"Wakefield's biggest" venue had a bit less than 80% of its forthcoming gigs being performed by people pretending to be other, more creative people!


It gets worse..
Bradford St George's Hall has just undergone 9 million pounds of restoration
On the itinerary from Feb to July are
Tribute bands for
Luther Vandross
David Bowie
George Michael
Elvis Presley
The Eagles
Spice Girls
Beach Boys
Queen

With next to zero acts from the world of contemporary music :?

Elvis is for everyone. That would actually be fun.

Rather begs the question of why you went ? :roll:

That's an easy one to Answer it was a Dreamsville social night
I remember people coming as far as Dundee to meet up
I had to support that effort


Ah that's how it always starts "I just did it to be sociable" :wink:

I'm glad you found the inner strength to "just say no" for sake of your health. :lol:

A Cautionary Tale
Perhaps we should regard these gigs as a form of ‘Care in the Community’, musical methodone for a doomed generation who contracted a virulent strain of ‘Rock and Roll Madness’ in their formative years.
Now old and vulnerable they venture out in search of that elixir of youth. Emerging from behind their piles of re-issues and box sets - the damned (Not literally ‘The Damned’ they’re a punk band ), pale and hollow eyed (quite Dave Vanian like come to think of it ), they go out in search of the ‘hard stuff’.
“Hey Grandad, fancy a shot of that sweet, sweet, Carlsbro penta-tonic!” they are powerless to resist.
Travelling to the ends of the earth (an ex-lap dancing club at the bottom of Smyth St. actually) , even from the exotic poppy fields of Kazakhstan, they gather to enact their sordid rituals.
Endless discussions of 5.1 remixes, re-masters and wether it’s a Big Muff, Little Muff or a Little Muff Pi in the Pete Cornish pedal board. A sorry sight indeed.
Two hours later it’s all over and cold turkey for six months ‘til the next fix. (I do wish the missus would find something else to put in me sarneys).
“Oh yes, we’re down on Terminal St. tonight”
“Oh no, don’t go on Terminal St. tonight”
Think on.


And yes I am that Soldier. 8)
