Clare Grogan / Midge Ure

 

Guildhall, Portsmouth

09 November 2017

 


Finally seen my teenage fantasy in Clare Grogan, only about 30+ years late!

She was great fun, very chatty and also a good performance live

Next up was The Christians who were not really on my radar but were not actually that bad.

Headlining was Midge Ure who put in an amazing performance covering his Ultravox, Visage and Solo work and even some Top Of The Pops thrown in.

A great night all round

LEVELLERS VenuePortsmouth Guildhall

________

Date02 December 2016


Been a few years since I’ve seen the Levellers and don’t really listen to their music that much so not sure what to expect when I went last night.

As a live act they are awesome, apart from the leftie political intro I enjoyed every minute.

Almost worth missing Janet Devlin for….almost

Didn’t see any of the support acts and it was damn cold going home!

ADAM ANT VenuePortsmouth Guildhall

Date27 May 2016


Saw the rather good Adam Ant at the Portsmouth Guildhall.

Always a bit of a concern when you see the “old-timers” trying to relive their youth but he was good, only the poor sound system which made his vocals indistinct marred the performance.

Personally I only knew about 1 in 4 of the songs but still a good show
