HRH Sleaze O2 Arena Sheffield 2/09/18. Day Two

  HRH Sleaze O2 Arena Sheffield 2/09/18. Day Two My plan today was getting all my interviews done early so I could see more bands play. There were a few early acoustic sets in stage two again for the lucky VIP’s and press, the first to play were Falling Red. I had reviewed their brilliant album Lost Souls earlier in the year so knew what was to come, but I was interested to see how their style sounded acoustically, let me say it sounded pretty good to me and the medium crowd enjoyed what they did too, they were on the big stage later in the evening and I heard whispers in the crowd that they were looking forward to it. Next were...

Nathan James @ Hard Rock Cafe Glasgow

  Nathan James @ Hard Rock Cafe Glasgow Shock City productions pulled another cracker out of the bag with the voice of Inglorious, Trans-Siberian Orchestra and War of the Worlds brought to Glasgow for an intimate Q & A and an acoustic set. Before we got to hear one of the most powerful voices in Rock today we got the no small matter of an acoustic set from one of Glasgow’s favourite bands Anchor Lane. This band have been ripping up the festival scene over the summer and jumped at the chance to go unplugged for this one. I was just as excited to see this set as I was the headliner as I have witnessed these boys many times but never...

  Hard Rock Hell Sleaze O2 Sheffield 1st/2nd August 2018. Day ONE After previously playing a special event for HRH on the Friday night and a small acoustic set to start today off on stage 2, you would have thought that these boys would have been exhausted. But this is the Idol Dead we are talking about and they don’t do tired, these five guys from Leeds have enough energy between them to power the national grid. Amassing a huge fan base called the Idol Army over their ten years together it looked like half of them were in the hall, it was rammed to the rafters and not surprising if you have ever seen them before: lead singer Polly...

  A little band from Lancaster just proved Rock is not dead   Back in 2014 Gene Simmons set ablaze an argument that filled many with rage when he stated “Rock is dead”. Like most I spat out a barrage of profanities and thought that’s it, the man has flipped. After I had calmed down I made myself read his interview in Esquire magazine and I sadly had to agree with a lot he said.   If you dig past the headline his comment is not about the amount of bands, not about talent but more around the fans and how music was no longer purchased in a physical form and how streaming sites were killing the hope for bands to break through....
