Music Diary – 28th July

Hello to my music diary for the 28th July!

Back in 2005 I attended a great Calexico show in Vienna at the Arena. The open air gig was started by singer Amos Lee and after that Joey Burns, John Convertino and the rest of the fantastic band gave us a performance which suited perfectly to the weather: WONDERFUL!

Music Diary – 9th July

Welcome again to my never ending Music Diary!

Today, on the 9th July 2010, it was the first time that I cross the Austrian border to Slovakia. One day after an awesome Woven Hand show in Vienna we headed to the Pohoda Festival in Trencin. Holy cow – the weather was unbelievable hot and the band was scheduled for 2 p.m.! Very ridiculous – but anyway: Woven Hand performed very tight, heavy, loud and intense.

Music Diary – 4th July

Welcome back to my personal music diary!

Today it’s a sort of „Legends Day“, because these two musicians are quite the best when you talk about Punk and Blues.
On the 4th July in 2010 I had my first Jello Biafra live experience. The former frontman of The Dead Kennedys and the runner of the legendary label „Alternative Tentacles“ rocked with his new band The Guantanamo School Of Medicine at the Arena in Vienna with full force.

And back in 1991 or 1992 – unfortunately I can’t remember the exact year – I had the wonderful opportunity to see one of the greatest Blues man live in concert: Mr. John Lee Hooker! If you know the exact date – please drop me a line – thanks!

Music Diary – 2nd July

Welcome again to my personal music diary!

And it’s again a special Jethro Tull day, because on the 2nd July I attended three shows:

The first one took place in Salzburg at the Eishalle in the year 1991! It was planned that Tull play an open air gig at the Kapitelplatz behind the wonderful dome, but unfortunately they changed the place and we had to walk into the Eishalle (an ice hockey hall). Before the show I met Ian Anderson for some pictures and after that the band performed in a perfect way with some nice surprises like an extended version of „Fat Man“!

Two years later I attended a Tull show in Wels, just two days after I saw them in Vienna during their „25th Anniversary“ world tour and in 2010 another remarkable show followed: It was the last time that I saw my long time heroes live on stage and it was also the last time seeing the band performing with guitarist Martin Barre, who left the band after four decades (!) one year later! And this is for me another big reason, why I avoid to attend another Jethro Tull show again. Cheerio, Ian Anderson 😉

All details of the mentioned shows (reviews, pictures, setlists and videos) you can find here:

Music Diary – 30th June

Welcome again to my personal music diary!

The 30th June is a sort of „Jethro Tull day“ in my diary because of two shows:

In 1993 Tull played during their „25th Anniversary“ tour in Vienna a open air show at the Arena. A very nice setlist feat. all songs from the whole career and also one brandnew track was played – an instrumental titled as „Andy Gidding’s Parrot“ 😉

And in 2012 I finally had the chance to see long Jehtro Tull bass player David Pegg with his legendary Folk band Fairport Convention. At a wonderful location on a lake they played songs from the last 45 years band history.
