Sheryl Cooper, Alice's wife, plays the nurse in the show.
Yeah, I know that's been the case for a few years now. I saw something from Calico recently that made me think she was out with them, but it's possible it was an old photo, a crossing of paths on the road, or that I am simply mistaken :)

Re: Tour 2018!

Unlikely. She only really does occasional guest appearances if she happens to be around. She stopped touring with her father years ago. Thanks. I thought I'd seen a social media post recently that looked like she was on the road with them, but quite possible it was a one-off, or that I misinterpret...

Re: Tour 2018!

Does anyone know if Calico will be in the show for the UK leg of the tour?

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

As someone with the most peripheral awareness of them, I just realised that Halestorm and Alestorm are unrelated bands. Personally, I'd rather see Alestorm... Interesting to me that Motionless In White are on the tour - I only know of them through Chris' guest vocals on a 2016 Combichrist track. I l...

Re: Alice and Big Country

Pete Wishart does mention that that tour was the end of Big Country, or certainly his part in the band - which would be a very viable reason, if they imploded mid-tour.

Alice and Big Country

When did Alice tour with Big Country, was that the Special Forces tour?

Pete Wishart MP mentions it in this brief interview snippet, regarding his background playing for The Skids, Big Country, and Runrig.

Re: VIP got VERY expensive?

I've said it before on here, but I've effectively given up on bigger gigs. Even smaller gigs, there's very little that excites me, but a couple of my friends promote (100-500 capacity clubs) and I regularly go and see whoever they're putting on. I resent paying more than £30 for a ticket, or £20 for...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

I was looking at Manchester, as a Glaswegian there's no way I'm going to Aberdeen. Best available just now is 12 rows back in block D (stage left), so I'll wait and try general release for something better - but I'm not committed, if I find nearer the front, fine. I'll travel for that. But I'm not t...

Re: ‘Ol black eyes is back Tour

Is it weird that I almost don't want a Glasgow show announced, because then I'll have to decide whether or not to go - or, more specifically, have to decide whether to wrestle with another ticketing clusterf-ck just to get a half-decent seat....?

Re: Vampires UK dates with the Darkness and the Damned

Cool blog dude, I enjoyed reading that. Thanks. Had a look today, on three different sites, but couldn't find any tickets that I want to pay £62 for. I finally drew the line last year when Iron Maiden wanted £70, and I think I just found my limit with Alice. For £60 this year, I can buy tickets to ...

Re: Vampires UK dates with the Darkness and the Damned

The problem is that there is no way of knowing who, if anyone, will be selling the good seats. As shown by the last tour, many of the best seats went on public sale a few weeks before the show! The pre-sales had garbage. I fully expect it to be the same for this. Exactly why I don't think I'm going...

Re: Vampires UK dates with the Darkness and the Damned

I was excited for about five minutes, until I realised that this will most likely be another seated gig, with a shambolic rush to find decent tickets (that don't include a £1000 meet-and-greet), which I expect to cost about £60 with fees. All to see what is, in effect, a glorified covers band. I thi...

Re: MANCHESTER 15/11

I've just checked Glasgow again - more tickets available, different availability to when I checked the other day. There's a row in the block in front of the stage that has only two tickets sold. On the block that's Audience Left, there are two full empty rows midway back. The place is gonna be full ...

Anyone made a plan? Anyone want to make one? Also, if you're in town early with time to kill, and want to do something other than drink(!), there's a new live-action scare attraction right next to Central Station - called Dread - it's a guided scare tour. There's a 2-tickets-and-food deal here: http...
