HOLLOWSTAR – Bannerman’s Bar Edinburgh (Concert Review)

HOLLOWSTAR – Bannerman’s Bar Edinburgh (Concert Review)

One of Britain’s new wave of classic rock Hollowstar came to Edinburgh to play Bannerman’s Bar on a Wednesday night. A very healthy crowd turned up to catch these young lads from down south of England and weren’t disappointed as the guys put on a hell of an impressive live performance. This was no mean feat having played about 7 shows in 8 days whilst traipsing around the UK on their holidays from their day jobs! Oh, the glamour…

JOE BONAMASSA – Live In Glasgow – SEC Armadillo (Concert Review)

JOE BONAMASSA – Live In Glasgow – SEC Armadillo (Concert Review)

On a beautiful Easter Monday holiday Glasgow welcomed American blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa to the aptly nicknamed Armadillo theatre on the edge of the Clyde river. I personally had never had the chance to catch the man himself on one of his own tours as opposed to the supergroup Black Country Communion. In this rather plush venue which is all seated the atmosphere could be best described as laid back. In fact, the audience remained seated for most of…

BONAFIDE – Live in Västerås (Concert Review)

BONAFIDE – Live in Västerås (Concert Review)

CGCM readers may recall my review of Bonafide‘s Live at KB release just a short time ago. If not you can correct that using this handy link: Bonafide – Live at KB (Album Review). In that review, I described the feeling I got during the listen. That of sweaty, whiskey smelling, steaminess that can only come from a small club show. You know the feeling. This album made me feel like it was all around…

KING KING – 10th Anniversary Tour – Glasgow O2 Academy – (Concert Review)

About the band: King King the hard rock and blues band have been touring their latest album Exile And Grace for a while and decided to end the latest leg of it in their home town of Glasgow.  The band are something of a well-oiled machine playing live almost constantly. They have a very bonhomie type attitude on stage. No over the top theatrics or even talk. Vocalist Alan Nimmo refers to the audience in the terms of “ladies…

THE STRUTS – Stylus, Leeds (Concert Review)

The Struts A thousand sweaty souls crowbarred themselves into the Stylus club located in the heart of the Leeds University campus to witness The Struts play the first – and sold-out – show of their UK tour. For those aforementioned souls amassed on February 16, it was a show that will live long in the memory and many who were there will no doubt be searching out tickets for future dates. The Support The support came…

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY – Denver January 2019 (Concert Review)

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY – Denver January 2019 (Concert Review)

Corrosion of Conformity rocked the Gothic, Englewood, Co, on their headline tour with Crowbar, Mothership, and WeedEater. Wiseblood and Deliverance are two of my favorite 90’s hard rock albums of the ’90s. They’ve stood the test of time. America’s Volume Dealer and In The Arms of God are perfectly rated but still have some gems. Once Pepper was out of the band and they performed and released albums as a trio I didn’t even care. I’ve seen…

POWERWOLF – Halloween in Berlin (Concert Review)

Powerwolf! I could do this review in 3 words. Those words being “bloody marvelous fun”. I was, of course, told that isn’t enough! So here is the longer review! Background To Review: Whilst in Berlin I was very lucky to be given the chance to review the gig by Powerwolf at Huxleys Neue Welt in the city itself. The venue holds around 3 or 4,000 fans and was sold out completely. When I arrived the…

STRIKER / LUTHARO – Velvet Underground Toronto (Concert Review)

STRIKER / LUTHARO – Velvet Underground Toronto (Concert Review)

Unleash the Archers are coming to Toronto. Meh. Supporting them are Edmonton’s Striker. Now that I’m in for. A longtime fan, I’ve never seen Striker in concert as yet. Throw in local support Lutharo, who my friend Jamie O’Toole has been telling me I need to see since forever. I’ve traveled further and paid more just to see supports and openers! So, I find myself at Velvet Underground on Queen Street Toronto on a Monday…
