Vampires Tour - going?

With a couple of weeks till the Vampires tour starts has everyone got tickets yet? Have to say I haven't but have just booked my summer holiday and will be in Lucca at just the right time. Couldn't get the enthusiasm to buy tickets for the gig here in Glasgow but can't really miss an outdoor gig in ...

Re: I still think Paranormal is mediocre........

I enjoy the album I find it nearly Great & a fine addition to his (ever growing) catalog I think that pretty much sums up my feelings on this one. Good statement. A Solid 7/10 ..and 7/10 is a very comfortable pass mark in my book! Proves there is more left in the tank and if it provides incentive t...

Re: I still think Paranormal is mediocre........

Fireball plus four others makes this better than average for me. We all want something from Alice that resonates to the era/style/attitude we remember and love the most.

Can't please everyone but the story continues and I'm delighted with that!

Re: Tour 2018!

Think there's been a couple of sellouts a couple of good crowds and a couple pretty poor. Good to see him getting near 5000 crowds but a bit poor when it's 1300 in a 2400 capacity venue.

Re: Vampires UK dates with the Darkness and the Damned

Viagogo is saying that they only have 200 left! Don't know how much of that is BS They were saying things like that as soon as tikcets went on sale. It's to make you panic and buy an inflated ticket. Note some of these companies also list "recently sold" tickets and "x people looking at these ticke...

Re: Vampires UK dates with the Darkness and the Damned

Hydro is not selling as well as last November. Blocks at the rear aren't on sale and they are filling the second tier from the middle out to the sides. Guessing maybe 5,500 to 6,000 max so far.

Re: Vampires UK dates with the Darkness and the Damned

For Alice to tour major venues and sell exceedingly well, and then return to the same venues six months later and (probably) sell them out is phenomenal under any circumstances! If I'm sitting next to some middle aged milf who is only there to swoon over Depp then I couldn't care less, I'll still b...

On the night some folk told me 72 was better because nobody had seen him before. That would have been ...

Sounds like you guys are catching up to the fun of concert ticket buying that some of us have been "enjoying" for years. That said, if I like an act, I'm still going to go see them.

I'm going but I am not doing the pre-sale as it was so painful last time. Happy to wait as this will not sell out. All seated is a really bad move but not a surprise.

Vampires UK dates with the Darkness and the Damned

Finally announced! Honestly didn't expect a Glasgow date for the Vampires but what a line up! Way better than the Tubes (who I was desperate to enjoy) and the Mission (awful).

and who exactly is he, that we should care about his FB list? :-/ Springsteen's right hand man for decades, and guitarist/solo artist in his own right. It's not just a facebook list. It's a list voted for by listeners (or anyone else who knew where to vote) of his nationally syndicated radio show. ...

I could cope with Springsteen, saw him before in Dublin and he was fine. Clapton however.... a helluva price for a sleeping pill.

Re: 2017 - How does it rank?

Paranornal was a really solid album and it was good to see MB DD and NS on record and playing live. I hope Hollywood Vampires write new material as I have no interest in the overblown covers. Agree. Think I've played the HV album three times at most. Would like to hear an album of new material but ...

Well, nearly all over now and I was reflecting on how 2017 ranks in terms of being an Alice fan. A clear landmark year for me and goes into my list of key years. 1972 - Schools Out. First seeing and hearing the group on Top of the Pops. Changed my life. 1973 - Billion Dollar Babies. Worshiped that a...
