Chvrches

Alexandra Palace, London

7 February 2019

My first sample of Chvrches live and a good experience.

Was worried about an overdose of politics but we got none and just a rather chatty and fun Lauren Mayberry in a nice dress.

Sound wasn’t great with bass that could give you concussion.

Gary Numan

Pyramid Centre, Portsmouth

12 March 2018

Return leg of his 2017 tour and Gary Numan opens at the Pyramid Centre.

As per usual the legend does not disappoint, nice to see This Wreckage get a play as well.

No appearance of his daughter this time on My Name Is Ruin as she did at Brighton, I guess she has to go to school occasionally.

A very good support act in the form of Nightmare Air, they will require some looking up.

04. Bed of Thorns
05. Down in the Park
06. Pray for the Pain You Serve

Midge Ure

Guildhall, Portsmouth

9 November 2017

After a support act of Altered Images and to a lesser extent The Christians it was down to Midge Ure to headline.

This was the first time I had seen Midge Ure as a solo act having seen him many times as part of Ultravox and he did not disappoint going through some of the classic Ultravox songs and from his solo career.

The guy can sure play guitar and still has a great vocal range.
