    Lostprophets - Shame on you Lee Tyrell!!

    Just because they have some memorable songs aren't bad live doesn't make every show great.

    Suggestion

    Would it be possible to have a search box 'By Area' So you could put in the town you are in & all gigs coming up for that town / city will show up. Would seem to me to make more sense to search by area rather than venue as you won't know all the venues in an area if you are from out of town.

    This year's hot acts....

    Saw 5 of those artists last year Think The Virgins will make huge strides this year King Blues havereally surprised me with the airplay they are currently getting, thought they where alright & different, but not commercial. White Lies are gonna be massive no doubt about that. As timespeedup mentioned Ladyhawke, saw her last year thought she was interesting & the album is ok, but I don't expect anything major to happen, to much like bananarama for me Looking forward to seeing Little Boots, Florence & the machine, missed those a few times...

    Biggest live disappointments?

    Stereophonics Hull Ice Arena a few weeks after sacking Stuart Cable, don't think the band where bothered at all, just appalling, no interaction with audience, poor quality sound, just woefull. Gary
