Bon Jovi – This House Is Not For Sale Tour – Wembley Stadium, London – 21st June 2019

I’ve been attending Bon Jovi gigs since the early 90s, but this was to be a special one, as it’s the first concert my 11-year-old son Lucas has shown interest in, and so I booked tickets for us to go when they first went on sale. He’s not been that into music until the last […]

The Power of Record Stores: Saint Agnes Live at David’s Music Letchworth – 7th May 2019

I could go on a huge ramble about how I came to see Saint Agnes yesterday evening, but let’s keep it brief, for both our sakes. I am a regular at David’s Music (and David’s Books), and as such, I follow them on Facebook, and it’s there that I saw them advertise that St Agnes […]

Danni Nicholls Live at Slide Record Shop, Bedford for Record Store Day 2018, April 21st

I’ve been a fan of Record Store Day for a few years now, both for the interesting releases that come out each year and for the live performances that record shops up and down the country feature. I usually go to David’s Music in Letchworth, but as soon as I heard that Danni Nicholls was […]
