Science Proves AXL ROSE is the Greatest Singer of All Time

Posted in Music, News with tags , , , , on May 20, 2014 by Tickets There

9552991We at the Tickets There Conglomerate Corporation for Financial Gain and Advancement Family, are not ones to gloat – but we done told ye! We said it again and a-fucking-gain – AXL ROSE IS GOD BITCHES! Ye all nit picked and griped, but the bottom line is the man is a fucking hero – and now science has proven it. (yes, science – want to fight about it?)

Concerthotels.com recently put up a list that is the end result of thirty seventh century technology which has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that AXL ROSE has not only the greatest voice of all time, but is also the baddest mother**ker on the planet. Why have I started censoring the curse words now you ask? Because I just remembered my mum and aunty occasionally read this blog and they may now be aware of my readers ignorance in the field of Axl! Axl who? William Axl Rose – scientifically proven greatest singer of all time and most beloved human since Jesus.!

If you’re someone who believes seeing is believing, then here’s further proof. Axl handing out shots at a gig,

Guns N’ Roses Confirm 2nd Las Vegas Residency

Posted in Gig Listing, Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 18, 2014 by Tickets There

1613782_10151857631700059_1955013598_nWell the rumours were once again true, Guns N’ Roses are in fact returning to The Joint in Las Vegas this year for a second residency. The group last played there in 2012 when they headlined 12 shows as part of their Appetite For Democracy tour. This second event is titled ‘No Trickery! An Evening Of Destruction’.

The shows will take place between late May and Early June this year with tickets going on sale this Friday, Feb 21st prices $49+. No confirmations about the set list have leaked yet but the band has discussed mixing things up a little more than the 2012 event. The last outing kept a similar set to their regular touring selections. Fans this time will be hoping for something a little different to make the shows more special.

Before that the band are scheduled to play 11 south American dates before returning to the US on May 13th. Full list of residency dates can be found below. Full list of all GN’R tour dates can be found on GN’R.com

  • No Trickery! An Evening of Destruction Dates: May 21, 24, 25, 28, 30 and 31 and June 4, 6 and 7

Reckless Love Release ‘So Happy I Could Die’

Posted in Music, Music Video, New Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , on August 23, 2013 by Tickets There

20130823-111825.jpgThe 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 can almost hear their Guns N’Roses era sound stream through as the song harks back to bad ass tunes like ‘Garden of Eden’, before propelling into one of their classic anthemic pop rock masterpieces.

Reckless Love are a band normally filed under guilty pleasures, but that’s not where they belong. We need more Reckless Love in our daily lives. Nightclubs, bars, bands, trains, planes and automobiles – everyone should be playing Reckless Love everywhere all the time. A phenomenal portal to fun, frolics and awesomeness. We need more Reckless Love and less everything else.

Spirit will see its official; release on August 30th. It’s the bands third album and currently shaping up to be their best! Dearest RL and DME, please find a way to return to Ireland this year. We need ye!

New Guns N’ Roses material surfaces?

Posted in Music, New Music, News with tags , , , , , , , on August 18, 2013 by Tickets There

GunsNRosesGOINGDOWNWell would you look at this thing we’re about to tell you. New Guns N’ Roses material – you heard right, NEW. For the first time since 2008, a brand spanking new GN’R leak made it’s way online late last week and managed to stay up for a few days before vanishing under the traditional copyright infringement notice.

Titled ‘Going Down’, the song is a hark back to Illusion era country/blues/rock for the band. Apparently it contains input from Richard Fortus, Ron Thal and Buckethead on guitars while Tommy Stinson takes over main vocal duties with Axl adding harmony in the background.

GNRCopyrightThe song is the first hint of new material since the release of Chinese Democracy and is suspected of coming from one of the two potential Chinese Democracy follow ups that are reported to form a trilogy of records. Well, they already had two Illusions, why not three democracies?

Did you hear the new tune? What did you think?

If you live in those towns – go and see the gunners live. It is the best 3,5 hours of tunes you could ask for.

Review: Slash (Featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators) – Live @ The Olympia (March 4th 2013)

Posted in Gig Review, Music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 5, 2013 by Tickets There

6430444c859e11e2a52022000a1f9e5e_7Everyone’s favourite top hat supporting, bad ass guitarist is in Dublin! No matter how many times Slash visits this country, the excitement of knowing he’s here never seems to wane and he isn’t shy about turning up. Ireland has been fortunate to receive him with Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver and now with his solo project, Slash (featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators). Ireland loves Slash and by a happy coincidence, Slash seems to love us too. The fact that he gets on stage every time he pops over and plays a mean set of mother f**king rock ‘n’ roll is just a bonus. Tonight’s crowd in the Olympia are a resounding endorsement of that love.

d7d7b368859d11e2844022000a1f9adf_7No matter what style of music you favour, job you have, hipster trend you follow or back alley you like to sleep through your hangover in, you’re represented here (I will volunteer to speak for the latter). The venue is rammed very soon after opening time and everyone is gasping with excitement and anticipation. Opening band, The Treatment, leap on stage and blow the crowd away with some good old fashioned 80’s sleaze cock rock. The whole band throw themselves into the performance and explode with heavy riffs, sing-along, hair metal boldness and alluring choruses. Supporting someone like Slash is a daunting task and it’s easy to ignore the support but The Treatment manage to get everyone on board tonight. Closing with ‘Shake the Mountain’, the band depart conquering heroes and for a moment you could almost forget the night is only starting.

Well, Charlie Sheen isn’t here – but we got those losers from Sunday night beat. In attendance tonight we have the legendary Martin ‘Eddie Durkan’ Maloney of Hardy Bucks fame in the house. Many pics were taken, many a scene played out. No warm Castletown intro for headliners unfortunately, but you can’t have it all. All of a sudden the houselights go dark, the PA kicks in and it’s time for the main event.

818a5154859e11e2844022000a1f9adf_7Slash arrives on stage to the throng of 1,600 voices screaming. The sight of the legendary axe man sends the Olympia into hysterics with people clamouring to squeeze as close to the barrier as possible as the band kicks off with ‘Halo’, from last year’s Apocalyptic Love album. The band sound great and considering this is the final date of a very long tour European tour, they’re still bursting with energy and charisma. Like or loath Myles Kennedy, the man knows how to get a crowd going and tonight he’s working overtime. Every note from Slash’s guitar rings loud above everything else as they blister through ‘Nightrain’, ‘Ghost’ and ‘Back From Cali’, the second single from his self-titled debut. Everything is getting an airing tonight from GN’R, Slash’s Snakepit to Velvet Revolver and his solo material and they’re in no rush to wrap things up quickly. ‘By The Sword’ sees the energy continue to grow in the band and crowd alike before bassist, Todd Kerns takes over vocals for ‘Dr. Alibi’ and Guns classic, ‘You’re Crazy’. I don’t know if Alter Bridge fans will forgive me, but Todd sort of blows Myles Kennedy off stage as his voice lacks the clean safety that Myles has and instead delivers a grittier, harder take on the tracks.

b73a967a859d11e2b56022000a9f1354_7Not speaking much, Slash let’s his guitar do the talking but does take enough time to thank the crowd and speak about the tour wrapping up. The epic ‘Civil War’ solidifies the crowd’s devotion before an extended jam laden rendition of ‘Rocket Queen’ blows the place apart, helped by a good five+ minute solo from Slash. It’s here that Myles can genuinely deliver a Guns song as he perfectly hits every note with perfection. Returning to his two solo albums, Slash knocks out ‘No More Heroes’, ‘Starlight’, ‘Anastasia’ and ‘You’re A Lie’ before closing the main set with fan favourites; ‘Sweet Child O’Mine’ and Velvet Revolver’s ‘Slither’. Over an hour and a half and we’re still hungry for more. They return to finish us off with ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ (again featuring Todd on vocals) and ‘Paradise City’, complete with exploding confetti and all. This part of the night gets blurry for yours truly. A lethal concoction of Guinness, Jack N’ Cokes and Slash left me hell for leather in the midst of sweat, booze, head banging and sing along pit behaviour.

Two hours of classics, icons and good vibes. There’s not a lot €40 buys you in Ireland these days, but Slash knows how to deliver value for money and you couldn’t have asked for better value tonight. Come back soon Slash, you’re welcome anytime.
