    Jesus.

    If I'd missed this cos Ticketmaster made me queue with the Take That people, there would have been actual murder today.

    Worked out though. Yes!

    I enjoyed the last show, but it's a pity they don't play more songs. I know the on-stage banter is part of the act, but they shouldn't leave so many killer tunes unplayed - it's criminal!

    Hasn't sold out yet, I checked yesterday at midday thinking they'd be all gone, I don't know has Metallica tickets going on sale at the same time had an effect on it, anyway I'm glad to get sorted, I missed them in January.

    Dead right.

    It was gas, but they left out several of the best tunes.

    Meanwhile, shame it's Vicar St. Not especially fond of that place.

    As long as they do Eyes Of a Panther, I'll be happy enough.

    Says in the gigs thread they've announced a second gig on the Tuesday.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,353 ✭✭✭Wrongway1985


    Gus G added as main support, a nice surprise. Guessing he may join them for Crazy Train.

    Good gig? Were the times above accurate?
    Going tomorrow and really looking forward to it now


  • Registered Users Posts: 46 War ensemble


    Totally accurate times. Amazing gig. The best live band in the world !


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,295 ✭✭✭ionapaul


    My initial thoughts as a Steel Panther fan; quite a few of the vocals were mimed?

    That's actually a compliment. I was up front for most of the gig. I can guarantee it was live. Tonight Micheal's mic went faulty .. no vocals when he had to get a replacement mic ..

    Steel Panther are just awesome live... The energy they put into their performances are unreal.


  • Registered Users Posts: 865 ✭✭✭laros


    Any thoughts on Gus G.... Is he worth seeing...?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,450 ✭✭✭blastman


    Someone coulda had a free ticket last night as muppet almighty here managed to drop my ticket out of my pocket! :D Got to the door and realised I had no ticket, slight panic! I walked back out on to Thomas St and there it was lying in the middle of the footpath!

    Anyway, the gig was excellent, they really are a brilliantly entertaining live act. One very minor gripe is that maybe a couple more of their own songs in the set would have been nice. Hearing the crowd bellowing the opening lines of Community Property was a highlight (again!), though. I didn't know any of Gus G's stuff, but he was great and worth getting in early for. Stage times given above were bang on.

    What did they play that wasn't their own?


  • Registered Users Posts: 865 ✭✭✭laros


    They have an album of covers of 80's Hair Metal songs out.. called Sunset Strip ..so they are doing the album and then their own songs


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,593 ✭✭✭✭Ol' Donie


    Woah, I didn't realise there was an album to go with it. Last album I got was Lower The Bar.
