I paid £5 for the Jam , £6.50 for UB40 supported by Simply Red and £25 for U2 and Oasis these two had some line up of support acts , more recently £47.50 for Paul Weller . Its been a steady rise in prices but the last few years it has just went nuts, even merchandise has went through the roof. 

Ten years ago, I paid over £100 a ticket to see Tom Waits at the Edinburgh Playhouse. It was music, theatre and spectacle. It was worth every penny ???? Can’t see Waits ever touring Europe again. It was one to tell the grandkids about. On the other hand, tickets for the New York Dolls at the Garage a couple of years later were £17.50 plus fees. Brilliant gig!

I was also at that Tom Waits gig. Fantastic gig and everyone had to supply proof of identity to try and stop the touts.

Ian Prowse in Cumbernauld last Friday, strangest gig I've been to. Locals out their face, a guy doing the caterpillar on the floor, a guy walking about sniffing folk. A unique experience.

Next up is Sheryl Crow in Calgary then James Grant at Kelvingrove.

A complete shot in the dark.

going to see a geezer and his band tonight in Embrae.. never heard any of his stuff, or obviously seen him perform. Normally i would go through a studious process (much like the clean zone, hygenic process of putting a new album on your seperates hi- fi back in the day) of acquiring some of the bands music, sitting in a darkened room, and letting it do its stuff... or or not as the case may be (Mark E Smith).

but not tonight... never heard one tune but jumped in head first and will witness what Kiefer Sutherland (nope, son of, not brother of) is aw aboot., I'll let you know on the other side.

I watched TRNSMT on the BBC and was blown away by Gerry Cinnamon. I have usually at least heard of acts who appear at festivals, but I simply had no idea who this guy was. The entire crowd seemed to know the words to his song ‘Belter’, and I thought he was great. Read about him on the internet, downloaded his album, single, and EP by his previous band The Cinnamons, and have been playing it non-stop. Bloody brilliant, some hilarious and sharp lyrics, and great tunes. Can’t believe I’d never even heard of the guy.

I've seen him a couple of times and think he's brilliant.

FFS, get with it, ya auld fud. He's done T in the Park a couple of times and that Butefest thingy that IOBS goes on about. I think he's done TRNSMT before as well.

Another cracking gig from Shedders.

First time at Castlefield Bowl and I really liked it.It's a bit amphitheatre ish,really good sound and we got a brilliant viewing point dead near the front.Huge queues at the drink stalls but that wasn't too much of a problem.First gap in the queue,caused by people talking and not realising queue has moved,and we were right in there.Double rounds didn't seem such a good idea later when I was bursting for a pish tho.:lol: My only complaint would be lack of toilets.

We went back to the hotel after the gig so didn't see much of Manchester pub life.Had a good wander about the city centre on Sat before heading to Liverpool to finish the weekend off.

Now there's a City I like.Need to check who's playing there soon.

Ended up at Fiesta X Fold on Sunday at Kelvingrove Park. Goldfrapp were brilliant, my wife says Emeli Sande was great but she left me cold;  Chic do what they do and you couldn't help but enjoy it in the glorious sunshine.  Great day out.

My Sister was there Sat/Sun.She much preferred Sun and loved ES....must be a girl thing.

Sat they took a while to get the sound right and nobody could hear Sister Sledge.........maybe not a bad thing.

I'd forgotten I'd bumped into you until yesterday.

I was pretty sceptical about who I'd enjoy but actually had a great time...was glad to have Monday off.
