Nope, nothing at all! They're a Midlands band who do unusual covers.- ones you don't hear bands do very often if at all. Things such as Mr Blue Sky, I am the Walrus, Tears for Fears, all sorts of genres. We were treated to Comfortably Numb too last night!

They were absolutely fantastic. All for charity too. They even had a young comedian on at half time who also played the guitar!

I can honestly say I've never been to such a fun, party night at the Robin. The crowd were really up for it, so were the band! They came down onto the dance floor (that sticky bit! grin) and got people limbo dancing under a piece of rope! An absolutely superb night and all for a fiver! smiley

I'll PM you a review if you like. However, I won't write a Muse review with spoilers as I'm seeing them 3 days before you. wink

Going to see a band called Mozart play their new album Don Giovanni at Leeds Opera House Thursday week. I'm told they really rock (and that the ice cream during the interval is great!)

I saw them at Reading Hexagon when Hugh Cornwell was still in the band i about 1989.

What I mostly remember from that night though is having a blinding headache all evening which rather spoilt the show for me cry

I'm interested how the show was too if you get chance Henry.

I saw her at Massey hall a few years ago and it was good.....just good. Found her a bit.....boring after a while.


That said, love Alanis....some of her songs have got me through the darkest nights!

Yeah, she has a kind of nervous energy when she performs, which can be exciting at first, but can wane after a little while.

I saw her for the first time on her last tour and really enjoyed it. She has a great voice and puts on a decent show. So I made a point of seeing her this time around. Her new album is excellent.

Overall, I enjoyed the concert. I was disappointed that she didn't play a certain song off of her new album that is a particular favorite of mine, despite doing it for other shows on this tour. Her band was O.K. Too much hopping around and head bobbing going on, but I guess that's the "cool" thing to do these days. I think her music deserves a better band. Nice acoustic set for the encore though.

Having said that, I absolutely hate the venue, and probably won't go back unless it's a MUST SEE artist (like PG doing acoustic Genesis in full costume). The sound was awful. It was muffled and screechy. Alanis has a kind of edge to her singing voice that the sound tended to emphasize, making it difficult to understand. That and other things I won't get into.

Anyway, to sum up: Very good concert, crap hole of a venue.
