Gig Review: FM / Dan Reed Network / GUN, “The Big 3-0 Tour” – Rock City, Nottingham (15th December 2019)

Is there anything better you could be doing on a cold and damp Sunday evening than watching three classic rock bands playing three iconic albums in full amongst an excited crowd of like-minded fans?
