Report: Hellfest 2013 June 21st – 23rd (Clisson, France)

June 27, 2013

Well, the hangovers have worn off, the body has stopped aching and the cure has been had. Hellfest 2013 is over and despite it only being two days since Tickets There’s triumphant return, it seems like a hell of a lot longer since I (yes I, too late for the split personality bullsh*t) was passed […]

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 / […]

MySpace Review – O Emperor

January 24, 2011

That’s right, another one of Ireland’s hotly tipped underground acts we’ve never seen or heard before. What do we actually do with our time you ask? Well, we drink a fair bit (although not that much, only 3 times this month including new years eve), watch a lot of TV, work on our paint city […]

Def Leppard: 2011 Tour to Feature Kansas and Heart

November 25, 2010

Not sure what to make of this one but apparently Def Leppard’s 2011 tour (for the States presumably, official details are still pending) will feature none other than Kansas (Carry on my Wayward Son / Dust In The Wind) and Heart (?? Two folk chick singers) as co-headliners / Special guests. Several members from Leppard […]

Well, well, well. Look who’s causing trouble in today’s Irish music news world. The IMRO (Irish Music Rights Organization. Music or musician? Ah, who cares) of all people.  Seems they want to start charging music sites that host music or even interviews with bands on their register. Seems the boyo’s have lost the plot altogether […]

MySpace Review – Five Will Die

April 8, 2010

Tickets There has a saying, ‘when in doubt, go to Cork’. Bands emerging from the People’s Republic seem to have a much greater ratio of talent to toss than any other county we’ve come across. Not to dump on the rest of Ireland or anything, we’ve just found Cork to be the most reliable for […]

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 […]

What happened folks? In the mid 50’s, Mr. Elvis A. Presley walked into Sun Studios in Memphis, Tennessee and became the very first, the best, the symbol, legend, embodiment and icon of rock n roll. Like Sid Vicious to Punk, Frank Sinatra to big band, Johnny Cash to country and western or even Dana to […]

Live Review: Man Raze, The Academy 2, Dublin

June 18, 2009

On a quiet Wednesday night in these recession times, surprises are welcome treats to break our attention from the constant news update about how screwed we all are. Tonight there’s more than one in store as The Academy fills up with members of Whitesnake, Def Leppard and their entourages to watch Man Raze in action. […]

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 […]
