Howdy folks,

In November 2007, Tickets There was started as a laugh after watching the EyeBrowy Tout Spaced skit. Over the last two years things haven’t changed a whole pile except we’re swearing less and people are reading more. We’ve had a great laugh doing it and we’ve discovered loads of fantastic music which, at the end of the day is the whole point behind this blog. We don’t make money from TT and we don’t want to. We’re not in this for anything other than to find good bands and give them as much exposure as we can.

Today, Tickets There finally has its perfect home and we’re proud to announce that our new address is

Since it cost a kingly sum of over $14 to get this up and running, you can be sure Tickets There will be working overtime to make this a decent blog for you to read, for us to enjoy and most importantly, to give the bands we like a respectable source of feedback. Tickets There aren’t critics, we’re music fans.

Thanks alot for making all this worthwhile and I can promise you this is the last nicey nice post you’ll be seeing on this site for awhile. Now, on with the show!!

Kindest Regards,
Tickets There! (Broke N Bloggin / Irish Noise!)

Merry Christmas from Tickets There

Sorry for reusing last year’s image, but ever since the big crash of 09, all my images and art work for the lads has been deleted. Will work to get it all back next year but for now, the message is what counts.

This year has seen an enormous rise in people visiting Tickets There and it’s really been great to see bands and fans alike starting to actually like the site (and hate it in some cases…ok, many cases) but the mails and comments we’ve received, positive or negative have all been greatly appreciated. All of us here Tickets There HQ are really excited about pushing things into overdrive in 2010.

We’ll start the year with an exclusive interview with Mr. Tim Vital, the man behind Neosupervital and go from there with interviews, live reviews, albums / ep and single reviews and of course, tons of Def Leppard, Guns N Roses and KISS information. We may even have the site up and running in the first half of 2010 so keep eyes…sort of peeled for more about that.

Anyways, enough endorsement and shameless self promotion. Have a great Christmas, a happy new year and a brilliant holiday from all at TT-HQ.

Kindest Regards,

Tickets There

Tickets There: Top 50 Albums (2000 – 2009)

Posted in General Tickets There Blog, Music, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 9, 2009 by Tickets There

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 finally decided we’ll do one to. Sher if everyone else is, why wouldn’t we? Tickets There never claimed (in the last 30 minutes) to be original or independent so we’ll follow the herd with the list thing. Not really sure what’s the point since we probably only bought 20 albums in the last ten years that were actually released in that time.

Instead of doing the 1 – 50 order, we’re putting them in chronologically.  This is a basic, hastily put together history of what shaped the amazing, the incredible, the mind-bendingly stunning tastes held by all at Tickets There HQ.

(Please don’t give me hell for Testament, but that album deserves to be on this list, even though it wasn’t released in the time frame. Damn calendar counter counters!!)
