Gig Review: Hayseed Dixie / The Zipheads – KK’s Steel Mill, Wolverhampton (18th May 2024)

It’s Saturday night in Wolverhampton and Hayseed Dixie are back in KK’s Steel Mill a year after their last show. But it wouldn’t matter what night of the week it is, I’d be there as would the entirety of the people assembled tonight. Because if you don’t like to hear some of the best-known rock … Continue reading Gig Review: Hayseed Dixie / The Zipheads – KK’s Steel Mill, Wolverhampton (18th May 2024)

Gig Review: Grey Daze / North Atlas / High Regard – KK’s Steel Mill, Wolverhampton (17th May 2024)

In the midst of 2020, Grey Daze, a band thought lost to time emerged from the shadows with an album of alternative rock which was a welcome dose of modernity and four years later with another record to their name, they still sound like they’re from the 21st century. Except, for the twist in this … Continue reading Gig Review: Grey Daze / North Atlas / High Regard – KK’s Steel Mill, Wolverhampton (17th May 2024)

Gig Review: The Cadillac Three / Stephen Wilson Jr. / Willy Cobb – Manchester Academy (11th May 2024)

In complete contrast to the last time we saw The Cadillac Three live on a bitterly cold September evening back in 2022, this time the band had brought the Tennessee weather with them to a sweltering Manchester Academy, along with a few other Nashville residents in support of their Years Go Fast tour. Nashville singer-songwriter … Continue reading Gig Review: The Cadillac Three / Stephen Wilson Jr. / Willy Cobb – Manchester Academy (11th May 2024)

Gig Review: Nickelback / The Lottery Winners – Hydro, Glasgow (16th May 2024)

Yeah, some of you are just going to write shitty comments because "Nickelback". But 14,300 people at this venue, at least, will disagree. I'll kick off with the only real disappointment if the evening - the queues. Hydro, if you're going to have merch stalls outside (good idea) then ensure they have plenty of stock. … Continue reading Gig Review: Nickelback / The Lottery Winners – Hydro, Glasgow (16th May 2024)

Gig Review: Tenacious D / Dave Hill – The Hydro, Glasgow (9th May 2024)

This was set to be a huge gig, and perhaps a surprise given the history of the headliners. I always felt that Tenacious D were a little side project, a joke that grew legs and ended up being a major, arena-headlining monstrosity. Strange how things like that can happen. Anyway, doors were a very early … Continue reading Gig Review: Tenacious D / Dave Hill – The Hydro, Glasgow (9th May 2024)
