Show Boat @New London Theatre, 13/04/2016

Show Boat is the first musical ever staged. So to see it put back on a stage almost 90 years later and still be as powerful and amazing, was truly a treat. The show premiered on Broadway in 1927 and tells the story of freedom and love. The storyline is set in America’s Deep South…

Record Store Day 2016, 16/04/2016

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… Record Store Day!! I love this day, even before I started collecting vinyl, I adored the passion and commitment of vinyl collectors to this day and what it does for music and the local record shops. I didn’t grow up with vinyls, yes my dad had (still…

Mumford & Sons @The O2, 10/12/2015

Looks like I missed two of my best gigs of 2015 off the list, well here it is now. Note to self: set reminder to upload blog pieces. Many were doubtful how Mumford & Sons would sustain their status as acoustic geniuses with the new, more indie, album Wilder Mind. I myself had to give…

Muse @The O2, 03/04/2016

On Sunday night Muse don’t just put on a pretty rocking show at The O2, they also broke a record at North Greenwhich’s Millennium Dome. The sold-out show is the biggest The O2 has ever seen. Yes the venue had been sold out before, but usually the stage will be sat in front of an extra…

Brian Fallon @KOKO, 08/04/2016

It’s fair to say I’ve seen my share of really good concerts, be it Frank Turner, Springsteen or The Gaslight Anthem. And they all hold a special place and a definite spot in the top 5. But sometimes a gig is not just good, or epic, or awesome, sometimes it hits you right in the…

At The Bar of A Tokyo Hotel @ Charing Cross Theatre, 04/04/2016

I’m definitely not the best to review a play, I enjoy them, but I don’t know much about the background skills of it, so I’ll give you the low down, but the actual critics might think differently. At The Bar Of  A Tokyo Hotel is a classic by the wonderful Tennessee Williams and Linda Marlowe stars…

Frank Turner @The Union Chapel, 19/12/2015

Sorry for the delay in getting this up. Totally thought this had gone up already.  🙂 What a treat this was. As a die-hard Frank Turner fan, this was not only something very special, a dream come true and thoroughly enjoyable, but also in aid of a fantastic cause. Everything about this gig was absolutely…

The Painkiller @The Garrick Theatre, 15/03/2016

If you like slapstick and you like Rob Brydon, this play is for you. For a limited time only The Painkiller runs at The Garrick Theatre as part of their Kenneth Brannagh season. The basic storyline: contract killer meets suicidal divorcee. Sounds funny? It is! The set is split into two hotel rooms and the…
