Re: Which O2 Academy gig are you most interested in this year?

Of the artists shown there are 3 I like

Manic Street Preachers

The Stranglers

The Bon Jovi Experience.

 

I admit to liking GOOD Tribute bands. I have seen some excellent ones in the past

The Bootleg Beatles, The Pink Floyd Experience, Who's Next, Bootleg Blondie, TRextasy, Showmaddymaddy, Counterfeit Sweet, Slade UK, Explosive Light Orchestra, Roy Orbison Tribute, Oasisn't.

 

I wont go to large venue concerts nowadays but still manage to see some great shows.

I liked the sound of the Bon Jovi Experience as well @Cleoriff, it sounds like a good night out smiley Have you seen any of the three you listed in the past? 

 

I have only visited the O2 Academy venues located in London, so I don't really know how big the other ones are - are any of the ones listed closeby for you, and small enough to go to?

I'd quite like to see Daniel Sloss having watched his Netflix shows (Dark and Jigsaw) but Bournemouth is a bit of a trek for something like that (3+ hours away!!).

So if santa happened to pop by our office this year (he’s been known to swing by outside of Christmas!) with gig tickets to Birmingham… Something you might be interested in, or is the venue too big anyway? slight smile

For a three-hour trek it’s going to need to be for something special, but our O2 Academy venues are known for creating some unforgettable moments. It’s a massive if, but if we managed to break into a ticket office somewhere and grab a ticket for you, would that make the trek easier? wink

Looks like an exciting gig, you’ll have to let us know how it was if you do end up attending! Did you spot any other gigs you’d fancy going to? Happy Dance

@EmilieT

It's not so much the size of the venue...it's the walk from the carpark to get to it.

A nightmare nowadays sadly...Smiley Sad

As much as I would like to say yes @EmilieT, I think it would have to be a no.

The gig is not due to finish until about 11pm, which puts the arrive home time around 2:30am. 

If he was doing a gig at Birmingham then it would be more realistic. But getting home around then on a school night is a no no.

Annoying!!  Thinking  Grumpy
