Just got in from seeing Martin Harley at the Marine Theatre Lyme Regis Dorset. A great little theatre and a masterclass on slide guitar.

Upload fixed… yipee…

Just enjoyed The Black Feathers in Axminster. The football club. These guys are just exquisite.
Check out ‘Holy Water’ on Tidal…

Been to the Jazz festival in Idstein, Germany yesterday. I try to go there every year with a good friend of mine. Beautiful setting in an historic city center with six stages and lot’s of mostly unknown and regional bands. Great fun, although we were hit by a thunderstorm late at night… :cloud_with_lightning_and_rain:

Quiet Island, last friday in Geneva.

Pearl Jam earlier this week in Amsterdam.

Rare concert. Unbelievable. One of those concerts that not only on a musical level is extra-ordinary, but touches you deeply on emotional level as well. I’m not saying this often, but this might be the best concert I’ve seen in all those years. It was epic.

Yup, which day for you? I managed to get tickets for the 13th. Great gig, they were in shape. Strangely enough for me it was also the first time to attend a concert at the Ziggo Dome. Great, efficient and most important the sound is great.

Tuesday. But I wish I had ticketsfor Wednesday as well :grin:


(Dick Vliek) #269

Just back from seeing The Eels in TivoliVredenburg (Utrecht, NL). This time with a complete band, so all rock versions of his songs. Was awesome. Last time I saw him, many years ago, it was just piano and guitar (also great).

Roger Waters yesterday in Amsterdam.

Mixed feelings tbh. Visually it was stunning. Sound was great.

But the show… I don’t know. Maybe it had to do with the audience. Everyone around me came for the guy that was part of PF, not so much recognizing his solo work. And when he just played a few songs ‘smallish’ I was thinking: why don’t you go to smaller venues, leave all this ‘gadgetery’ home and just play.

Daisy Clark at the Hampton Court music festival

Stone Free festival in London few days ago : Yes, Roger Hodgson, Anathema, etc.


#273

Just came back from a prolonged weekend in Hamburg, Germany. Visited the beautiful concert hall called “Elbphilharmonie” there, which opened beginning of 2017.
The concert was about the film music of John Powell, who was hosting the evening (very cool) and played a couple of instruments in the orchestra during the show.
I’d post a couple of pics but with the new European data privacy law…well, there’s people on them I don’t have a contract with. :wink:
The sound of a full blown orchestra with a fifty piece choir in that concert hall room was breathtaking, that is something you cannot recreate with any sort of high-end equipment. I guess we audiophiles strive to get as close as possible. :wink:

Nine Inch Nails a couple of days ago at the Royal Albert Hall in London.
