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 […]

Slash – Solo Album Artwork, Track list and Release Date Announced

February 3, 2010

Ex-Guns N’ Roses and current (apparent) Velvet Revolver axe legend Slash is nearly ready to release his much anticipated debut solo album. The record, entitled Slash, is coming to all good music shops and, strangely enough, newsagents on May 10th in the UK (April in the States). As well as a standard record release, Slash, […]

IRISH NOISE! – Two Tales of Woe (MySpace Review)

February 3, 2010

This series isn’t in danger of becoming metal obsessed….because there is no danger with Metal. After a frustrating hour of listening to Judas Priest’s British Steel and not being able to review it…again, Tickets There decided that more metal was needed. As we’re slowly but surely learning, Ireland has a good share of decent metal […]

MySpace Review – Fingersmith

January 19, 2010

After trying a whole heap of acts from this years JD Set (Read Here for More), we were coming to the conclusion that aside from Stone Throwing Youths, everything else was amateur…until we found Fingersmith. Formally known as Silo and hailing from Co. Cork , they just released their debut album (The Annexe) in December […]

MySpace Review – House of Dolls

January 19, 2010

Dirty, sleazy and good. Three words that sum up Tickets There’s highly professional opinion of House of Dolls. We found these guys days ago but haven’t been able to properly sit down and give them the dedicated focus they deserve from us. Now, with the wind in our hair, the sweat on our brow and […]

Guns N’ Roses: Seoul, South Korea Setlist

December 14, 2009

First of all, No, we won’t be doing this every time Guns N’ Roses play a show this year. There are other bands we’d like to give attention to. But, Tickets There has a deep rooted love for the most dangerous band in the world and the fact that they’re touring makes us feel all […]

MySpace – Cheap Freaks

October 18, 2009

God, after trawling through a whole heap of this years HWCH Festival players, I’ve finally found one that doesn’t sound like The Killers, Radiohead or just pure nonsense (Chongo Pop!). Cheap Freaks are another act I’ve never heard off and they play rock n roll! Not nice pretty rock either, no. They play downright dirty, […]

KISS – Sonic Boom (Album Review)

October 8, 2009

Anyone who can say ‘baby feel my tower of power’ is a legend and you can’t get more black and white that that.

Tickets There Likes: Iron Maiden – Powerslave

September 1, 2009

I tried writing this review last night and have about three paragraphs done at home but I can’t stand the idea of that Radiohead chaps face at the top of my blog so I’m rushing through this one to replace his fecking hideously boring presence with the mighty Maiden’s Powerslave cover. I hope all of […]

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 […]

Tickets There Likes: Def Leppard – High ‘N’ Dry

July 30, 2009

Hopefully you’ve gone out and bought Pyromania, if not… I said, you’re a sap. Or, maybe it’s because you haven’t read the review so go do it now  Good, now you’re back. So The Mighty Leppard exploded in the states with that album, made them the biggest band in the world…etc. Now it’s time […]

Tickets There Likes: Judas Priest – British Steel

July 27, 2009

If there’s one album that’s had my attention more than any other in the last six months, it’s the mighty British Steel. I think I bought it about six years ago, put it on a shelf and never bothered to actually listen to it. Other things just kept getting in the way. It wasn’t until […]


July 1, 2009

Well, you may have noticed extensive reconstructions on the Tickets There MySpace this weekend. After toying with the notion of moving everything to WordPress, I’ve decided not to bother so I’m staying here instead. Plans are in the making to launch an actual website in the coming months but for now we’re staying put. […]


June 3, 2009

Well, it’s been a few weeks which I regret; people were actually reading things last time I was here so I wouldn’t mind keeping that going. Then again, it’s not too bad to take breaks and reassess what you’re doing. Too easy to get caught up in a cliché ideal and I could have been […]


June 3, 2009

Bats are currently building up a nice little fan base around Dublin. They’re listed a favourites on several notable music blogs, E-Zines, stores and magazines. To Tickets There, they sound like a mix of Chop, chop, stop! Indie with a tea spoon of metal. Once again, I haven’t heard their EP or seen them live. […]
