Me and Midge Ure - Dancing With Tears In My Eyes!

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

I’ve just returned from a excellent, fantastic gig by Midge Ure, at Pocklington Arts Centre. A brilliant gig of all his great songs, and especially a fantastic rendition of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.

Dancing With Tears In My Eyes - so very true due to recent events!

Andy and Midge Ure, Pocklington Arts Centre, 10th Feb 2012

Not to put a downer on the event, the gig was fantastic, but to be honest and truthful I did have tears in my eyes, and found it difficult to hold them back when meeting Midge this evening. (due to recent events!). A very emotional evening.

Midge did comment “that he does write bloody miserable songs!” and wished us all the best.

A truly sureal moment, growing up in the 80s and listening to Midge Ure/Ultravox and then to meet Midge in person.

Thanks to Midge, Berenice (and my Dad!)

“a night I’ll not forget!” - Andy

Marina and the Diamonds, Leeds University 5th November 2010

Saturday, November 6th, 2010

Another fanastic concert by Marina and her band. The University union gig was packed in like sardines in a can. A cross section of the public from teenagers to Mums and Dads escorting their children, or Mum’s escorting their children! (got to be careful what I write, as there’s children reading the blog!).

This video is also available in HD, as it was shot in HD, on a Cisco Flip HD! Just change the you tube options, if you’ve got the bandwidth!

Bootleg DVDs available of the Marina and the Diamonds, Leeds University 5th November 2010 ‘Burger Queen Tour’ gig at a £5 donation towards DVD and p&p (UK), and electricity required to transcode and burn the DVDs!

Are You Satisified with an average life?

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

Are you satisfied with an average life ?
Do I need to lie to make my way in life ?

from the Song - Are You Satisified? - Marina & The Diamonds

Marina & The Diamonds@Leeds Met 31 May 2010 - A few videos

the sounds quality is appalling because the high volume from the PA at the gig overloaded the camera’s internal microphone. but here are a few videos captured live at Leeds Met on the evening of 31 May 2010.

But the Gig was FAB! Thanks Marina!

My ticket has arrived to see Marina and the Diamonds at Leeds Metropolitan University Student Union on the 31 May 2010, Lindsey thinks I’m having a mid-life crisis, it’s been about 26 years since I last purchased a ticket to see a pop group that was charting for a mere tenner! Lindsey didn’t want to go! So billy no-mates is going on his own!

Lady GaGa Monster Ball Tour - 18th Feb - MEN Arena – Manchester - Video!

Friday, February 19th, 2010

It was an interesting night, being thrown back in time to the 80s, watching all the dressed up fans (freaks - myself included, which reminds me of another band and song - ‘all the best freaks are here’ ) in their gear! But an enjoyable, fabulous set and songs. Worth the wait! I only wished I had another ticket to see her again!

It gets much loader, when GaGa comes on, and wipes out the camera microphone, I wondered why Lindsey was complaining one of her ears wasn’t working properly today! Mine are okay, but I’m deaf anyway! Please also note, if you are one of the freaks going to the Monster Ball, the video does contain spoliers!

Friday, February 19th, 2010

I didn’t really anticpiate taking my compact digital camera because I didn’t know how well the photos and video would come out, and despite the notice on the entrance to the MEN stating cameras and digital recording devices would not be allowed, I think everyone at the MEN had a camera or phone with a camera! The only problem is I only took, on memory card, which was rather full, but here is a small clips of the evening to give you a flavour, and I apologise for the picture, video and audio quality - it was loud, that loud, it overloads the microphone on the camera.
