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 […]

Axl Rose Sues Activision over Guitar Hero III

November 25, 2010

Well, we weren’t going to mention this but we decided not to take the Perez Hilton approach and only report the good but our benefactor (speaking of which, where’s the check Mr. Rose?) has decided it’s finally time to sue Guitar Hero III. Well, he’s suing the makers of the game Activision for $20 Million […]

IRISH NOISE! The Paddy Usher Band (MySpace Review)

September 21, 2010

Tickets There are playing catch up today. With September being full of Guns N’ Roses, shows, a festival and a wedding, we haven’t had a whole pile of time for writing. We’re doing our best to flesh out the site a little but overwhelming tiredness, depression educing lack of funds and an eagerness to do […]

MySpace Review – The Revellions

July 3, 2010

Not sure if this is our third or fourth attempt to get this bands review finished but no matter what computer we try, their MySpace page brings IE and Firefox to a near freeze. Very frustrating when you only have 30 minutes to do a review! There’s one saving grace though, the band sound wicked […]

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, […]

MySpace Review – Blasterbra

January 13, 2010

Ah Wednesday, nice. Warmed up this morning with Guns N’ Roses Bad Obsession followed by The Future Kings of Spain Lost and Found, The Delorentos Secret and You Can Make Sound before indulging in a fine selection from The Jimmy Cake’s MySpace. God I love Irish music and now that we’ve woken up, it’s time […]

HY-GIY?: Bell X1 – Music in Mouth

December 14, 2009

Have to take a break from Guns N’ Roses stories and it’s been too long since I revisited some of the finest albums our local acts have released over the years so let’s turn the spotlight on Kildare’s favorite sons, Bell X1. I first discovered Bell X1 in March, 2003. I remember the date because […]

Rob Zombies ‘Hellbilly Deluxe 2’ Release Date Postponed

October 21, 2009

This story is at least a week old not but I’m making more of a effort to post more news related articles and quite frankly, there isn’t anything going on at the moment. Originally meant to hit stores on November 17th but for unannounced reasons, the album’s release date has now been pushed back to […]


June 3, 2009

When you’re a fan of a genre, it’s generally because you found one band you fell head over heels in love with and you try desperately to find similar bands in order to discover new areas the sound can be brought to. My love for Irish music started with a truly legendary three piece from […]

Velvet Revolver – The Ambassador Theatre – March 12th 2008

March 14, 2008

Velvet Revolver landed in Ireland this month to play two sold out nights at the Ambassador Theatre in Dublin and Tickets There decided that Slash’s presence in Ireland deserved a mention (personal favourite ya see). We wouldn’t really call ourselves Velvet Revolver fans. Their first album was half decent and we remember being pretty excited buying it just […]

Reckless Love Release ‘So Happy I Could Die’

August 23, 2013

The second single from their forthcoming album, Spirit, is here! Fans have been waiting with pained faces and bated breath for the follow-up to ‘Night On Fire’ and our favourite Finnish lads have delivered. ‘So Happy I Could Die’ is an excellent harder rock swagger than anything we’ve heard from the lads in a while. You […]

Metallica to play Marlay Park in September?

June 20, 2010

Alas, it isn’t to be. Metallica have announced THEY WILL NOT EXPANDING THEIR TOUR IN 2010 – Click Here for the official Statement. We normally wouldn’t report news that looks as obviously false as this….but it’s Metallica and it’s a new year so who knows. Word on Metal Ireland is Metallica are coming to play […]

MySpace Review – Million Dollar Reload

February 10, 2010

Finally, Tickets There has found the band we’ve been looking for. After 76 MySpace Reviews, multiply that by 10 for the number of bands we’ve actually checked out as review candidates and the countless others we’ve come across in our seven or eight years as fans of Irish music. Million$Reload, in our opinion, are possibly […]

Tickets There: Top 50 Albums (2000 – 2009)

December 9, 2009

So, it’s decade ending time. All the music publications, webzines, blogs, fans everyone with a computer and the ability to type has a list of their top 5, 10, 20, 50, 1,000, 1,000,000 albums of the last ten years and the great, thoughtful, original minds that drive, create, nurture and bring you Tickets There have […]

Slash – Sahara / Paradise City (Single Review)

November 11, 2009

Tickets There knows full well we should not be reviewing this, so we’ll keep it brief. Let us tell you right now, we hate both of these songs (yes, even Paradise City. It’s not a classic anymore. Instead it’s become…well, let’s save that for a little further down). Sahara, featuring Koshi Inaba from Japanese hard […]

Aerosmith Replacing Steven Tyler?

November 4, 2009

Very sad story over on Classic Rock’s website. It seems the problems in Camp Aerosmith are far worse than everyone imagined. After months (years really) of rumors, back n forth’s and travesty after travesty of the road, it seems things have caught up with one of the worlds greatest rock n roll bands. Joe Perry […]

Arthur’s Day: Good drink, Shit Noise!

September 25, 2009

Anyone else in the pub last night at 17:59 for a toast to Arthur Guinness? Tickets There was but regrettably, there wasn’t a huge crew out. Ah well, quiet nights happen and when there’s free Guinness going around, a small crowd wont complain about having to fill the void 😉 What the hell was with […]


September 22, 2009

If You haven’t heard of this group then it’s time you did. Wired Desire are one of the hottest rock bands Tickets There has heard in many a year. If you’re a fan of Guns N Roses, Aerosmith or ZZ Top, then you’re going to love this group. Check out their MySpace Now
