    Probably be working:

    Wild Roots, Body&Soul, All Together Now and Electric Picnic. I hope to make Forest Fest and would love to do Beyond the Pale, but still too close to Body&Soul to contemplate.

  • Registered Users Posts: 36,426 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009

    Do you have a plan B for the 'Ozzy & Judas Preist' dates ??

    Ozzy could still do live shows sitting down or held up but been on the road with so much travel could be the bigger issue for him

    I reckon he's more likely to do the Birmingham show than any other. It's the start of one of my road-trips though and I could simply defer my ferry a day. If they don't play the 3Arena that saves me a 350km round trip

    I've got Turin Brakes, Bruce Springsteen, Death Cab for Cutie and Blink 182 lined up for 2023 so far. Interested in Blur and Sam Fender as well but haven't fully decided yet. Would like to pick up tickets for Elton John as well.

  • Registered Users Posts: 36,426 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009

    Began 2023 in the Helix for Trivium. Personally felt the setlist was very disappointing but in terms of performance it was amazing and the lads are really underated in the metal world

    Have a feeling the lucky fans going tonight will get the classics

    Venue was OK but could of been better if it was the Olympia or even half capacity 3Arena

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,945 ✭✭✭fafy

    The Murder Capital last night in Crane Lane, they did 9 tracks, all accousticcy, a few from the new album out today, two of them did a dj set later on as well.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,065 ✭✭✭Stillill42

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,945 ✭✭✭fafy

    Well, it was accoustic so, very different to the new album, slower, but more intimate, but fantastic to see them do something different, the real new album road test, will be in Vicar Street in late Feb.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,945 ✭✭✭fafy

    Well what do ya know, postman just delivered this vinyl. literally just after i posted the last message:

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,065 ✭✭✭Stillill42

    Some great stuff on there, a few I'm undecided on yet but very promising on the whole. I'm in to see them do a thing in the Aloft hotel Thursday. Hopefully they'll be plugged in for that.

    Got a Puscifer ticket. Advertised as 41.25 before fees, went to buy it was 39.85 before fees, select that option and the fees started on top of a ticket that was showing as 44 quid. Nice little mystery fiver there per person to take from people

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,050 ✭✭✭Fanirish

    Olympia restoration fee is €2 I think and yes they are still taking that a decade later

    It got a five star review from The Guardian. If it's anywhere near as good as Skinty Fia we are entering golden era territory
