The legendary Whitesnake and ‘those who shall not be named’ have announced a co-headling UK tour with a stop off at Belfast’s Odyssey Arena on May 16th. Apparently those who shall not be named are closing the shows, which will give you loads of time to enjoy Whitesnake rocking the joint and then make it […]

Live Review: Def leppard / Whitesnake / Journey – O2 Arena, Dublin

June 17, 2009

With the arena world filling up with reformed pop bands and mediocre indie acts like Coldplay, Snow Patrol and the Kings of Leon, it’s about time the people who do it best return and show the kids what a live performance is all about. When you take two bands like Def Leppard and Whitesnake and […]

Review: Def Leppard – Slang

February 14, 2014

I was initially going to avoid reviewing this and just enjoy it, but after several spins of the Slang re-issue this week and it being Valentines days and all, I figured my first love in music deserved my attention. Sending the actual members of Def Leppard a card is considered ‘psychotic’ by those around me […]

Review: Whitesnake – Live @ The Odyssey Arena, Belfast (May 16th, 2013)

May 20, 2013

Maiden, Metallica, Sabbath and now Whitesnake – for some reason Dublin is missing out on a lot of high quality metal and rock shows these last couple of years; with the bands choosing to play up north instead. In some ways it sucks, but if you’re from the north it’s probably a long overdue welcome. […]

Review: Def Leppard, Alice Cooper, Thin Lizzy – Live @ The O2, Dublin (June 8th, 2011)

June 9, 2011

Back by popular demand, Def Leppard are in Ireland after a two year absence; once again warming up for another headlining  slot at the Download Festival. Two years ago they arrived with Journey and the jaw dropping Whitesnake in tow. Tonight’s line-up is even more astonishing with the legendary Thin Lizzy and Mr. shock-rock / […]

Le Galaxie – Laserdisc Nights 2 (Album Review)

June 9, 2011

One of the problems of living during a recession is that you are bombarded with negativity on a daily basis and so reality is hard to take at times. The news may leave you feeling somewhat empty and apathetic. I find a little dose of pure escapism is just what the doctor ordered. Le Galaxies’s […]

KISS Announce Dublin Show / European Tour

November 24, 2009

I’m speechless. Yesterday I found out that Tickets There’s all time favorite live band are playing their very first (I think) show in Dublin’s O2 Arena. KISS are undeniably the greatest live phenomenon touring under the good time rock n roll banner these days and despite hard efforts from AC/DC, Def Leppard, Whitesnake and Journey […]

Radiohead play Creep Live at Reading Festival!!

September 1, 2009

Shock, horror, amazement and astonishment. The blandest band in the world, Radiohead, actually played their biggest hit, Creep on Sunday night. Just saw the report on NME and I was almost bowled over with laughter. What sort of band headlines any huge show like that and ‘surprises’ the audience by playing the song everyone but […]

GUNS N’ ROSES – CHINESE DEMOCRACY REVIEW

January 18, 2009

20 years ago, Guns N’ Roses were one of the most exciting bands in the world. Although they originated in the midst of the hair/glam rock scene in L.A., the band seemed to possess a quality that bands like Poison, Motley Crue and RATT..etc just didn’t have. Within three years, Guns had become the biggest […]

March 14, 2008

If ever there was a night in my life I should have been prepared for, this was it. An exclusive interview with one of Irelands newest and most exciting groups ‘Concerto for Constantine’ and (as I discovered later), their first since forming last August. The band comprises of Mark Greaney (Vocals, Guitar and formally of […]
