    Where did people talk about gigs for 2023 in the future over the last few months? Thought it was all going into the 2023 thread.


    Edit: I see it now. All very confusing 🤣

    We'll setup a 2024 chat just before Christmas

    the 2024 review thread definitely needs a better title, "2023 gigs" and "gigs for 2023" mean the same thing.

    The Darkness are a class act live

    Looking forward to seeing the recent documentary

    Yeah I saw them in the Olympia last time they were here, they were excellent . Desperately tried to get tickets to the gig in the Academy the tour before that but had no luck. My previous time seeing them before the Olympia was in Vicar Street 20 years ago 😱

    Ho! BC Camplight majestic in Whelan's tonight! Full band for most of it, just himself and the piano for a few. He's a hoot, really funny, killer lyrics, had the place in the palm of his hand. Personal Trainer superb support. Thoroughly enjoyable Wednesday evening.

    Stunning gig, the songs take on a new life live. The only time I saw him live was in Workmans last year when it was just him and his piano and that was brilliant too, but nice to be able to contrast the 2 experiences.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,028 ✭✭✭Shakyfan


    Someone else said this but the name of that discussion (and this one) sounds too like the rumoured / confirmed one. Surely there is some way of making a clearer distinction between them?

    Feel free to ask a mod to change the thread title. I don't mind.

    I've seen the Darkness before, I've seen the Darkness tour this album on it's anniversary before, but that was fcuking special. A beautiful love letter to the first album that was mine, nobody recommended it, the band didn't have a back catalogue, they were young, they were hungry, they were new and I got in on the ground floor.

    And it's still one of the best pure rock and roll albums ever, don't even try to argue.


    Fairytale into don't let the Bell's end was the highlight, but Justin calling out the **** who were recording everything was a close second.



  • Registered Users Posts: 8,913 ✭✭✭Royale with Cheese


    I loved Justin calling out people for filming everything. I had to get up from my seat at Queens of the Stone Age last week and some kid sitting next to me gave me filthies and was shaking his head because I'd ruined his recording of My God is the Sun. Put your fúcking phone away you twat, you are never going to watch that again.

    The Darkness are just an incredibly good band. I know they were huge at one point 20 years ago but they are somehow a massively underrated band today.

    They were in the pit as well, so they'd probably gotten there 3 hours before the Darkness came on stage just to watch the whole thing through a screen........... I hate people at the best of times but sometimes they make it easy.



  • Registered Users Posts: 37,294 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Really looking forward to seeing the Welcome to the Darkness doc

    The House Of Love - The Academy: A 1hr 40min. set from HOL last night. The first 75 minutes was focused on the 3-album Fontana period, in which they proved that even some of the less well received lp's had some quality tunes on them. Delighted to hear Se Dest, disappointed not to get 32nd Floor. Chadwick then played a 3-song acoustic encore (including Blind). The band then rejoined him for a final triple-whammy of Christine, Destroy The Heart and a wonderfully building Love In A Car. Given the acts this year i think they'd make a fine booking for Forest Fest 2024.

    Slow Pulp - Workmans Club: Sold out show in the Workmans main room on Saturday night. A (mostly) young and very enthusiastic crowd, the band were well impressed with the reception they got. Musically, they were fine. If you're into them they put on a good show. The trouble for me is i've heard it all before and done better. My problem with all these acts influenced by Pixies/Breeders/Throwing Muses/Belly etc. is that they sound redundant to my ears. None of them improve upon the template or even sound like they're trying to. If anything they tend to go poppier. I've no doubt some folks here would like them but i won't be seeing them again.

    On the road...under the sky...coast to coast.

    Last night was my first venture upstairs in the 3OIympia. Did not get a ticket when they first went on sale, then got one for the circle few days ago.

    Justin never fails....

    Was at Extreme last night, stunning band, Nuno is the best guitarist in the world for me. Just mad how clean he is at these really intricate and technical passages, and unlike a lot of shredders is very melodic. Fingers crossed for a 2024 gig in Dublin as they are back in Europe and the UK next year



  • Registered Users Posts: 37,294 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Hope so I'd love to cross them off the list

    There supporting Scoprions for a few gigs next summer

    Saw that, got excited they were coming back to London and then realised only a support. Bit of a waste of Extreme considering it’s their only UK gig of 24, although admittedly I’ve never listened to Scorpions



  • Registered Users Posts: 97 ✭✭xyz13


    Saw them in Glasgow last month, outstanding!

    I asked Gary why they skipped Ireland this time around, he has no idea. 🤞2024🤞

    Petit a petit l'oiseau fait son nid...



  • Registered Users Posts: 37,294 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Hoping they might play Mad Cool whenever the feck they announce it's happening and release the line up

    Extreme...ly unlikely for Mad Cool, perhaps not the audience but they have tickets to sell for their own show there.

    Will be at Graspop where they on the bill. Scorpions are a great band on record back in the day, live these days meh, crap sadly.
