What's On? Gigs and events Adelaide.

Recommended Posts

"Sooo excited I could crush a grape" (for those of the same vintage as me who remember Crackerjack).

For the first time ever, EUROPE (Final Countdown, Carrie etc) are coming to Australia in 2018, playing Thebby on May 18. Got our tickets last night. Saw them three times in the UK, first at Hammersmith in about 1986, which I still class as the best gig I've ever been to, then in 2004 and 2006 after they reunited. It's the same line up as from their big successes of the mid 80s. Some may only know the poodle rock days of Final Countdown but they were a seriously good live rock band every time I saw them. Can't wait.

Really that good? Am tempted to go based upon your recommendation... Will see if the OH is up to going!

I had to drag him to the Stevie Nicks / Pretenders show at Adelaide botanical park a few weeks ago and he absolutely refuses to go to the Leconfield (A day on the green) this weekend (KC and the Sunshine band, Village People, Sister Sledge etc).

One of the best concerts I have ever been to was a Foreigner concert at the Good Hope Centre in Cape Town many many years ago (1991 I think). They are maybe going to tour Oz again next year...

Don't you just hate it when you buy tickets for an event only to find them discounted as the event gets nearer!

 

Anyway...I have tickets to see The Human League but they are now discounted! Concert is next Monday the 11th.

There are a couple of other shows discounted too....

Europe sound quite a bit heavier live than they did back on vinyl in the 80s and some of the more recent stuff they've done is definitely more heavy rock than some of the early stuff, but i love 'em.

Also going to Foo Fighters on Jan 23.

Gutted my favourite Blues guitarist Robert Cray is at The Gov the same night as Europe play Thebby. Any other night and I'd be there. Saw him support Tina Turner in London in about 1987 and he was great. He came back on stage with her towards the end of her set and then she announced another good friend of hers was in the crowd and had asked if he could play a couple of songs with them. Never said who it was and didn't need to when Eric Clapton stepped up.

We've been getting back into 70s, 80s disco stuff recently by going to Disco Inferno at The British Working Mens Club. Four discos there in Feb and Mar are part of this year's Fringe.
