    Hoping to buy tickets to Jack White's Melbourne gig which is at the end of July. They go on sale on Tuesday morning so fingers crossed. I missed out on Radiohead tickets which I'm pretty cut about

    Not a concert, but a Metal Opera (in a real theater). Was pretty impressive from the visuals, good from the band/actors/music and funny to watch how different the audiance was (traditional "suits" you'd expect from opera visitors, next to long-haired metalheads like me).

    The piece is called "Die Chronik der Unsterblichen - Blutnacht" ("Chronicles of the Immortals - Blood night"), based on the book series of the same name by germany's best selling fantasy/horror/sci fi author Wolfgang Hohlbein (also known to be a metalhead), arranged and performed by the German progressive metal band Vanden Plas. The concert ... erhm ... opera lasted three hours with the typical break in between and was a really good experience. Haven't been to a theater for along time.

    Went to see Blink 182 in Manchester yesterday. I've seen them there twice before. They were incredible, brilliant show. Probably the best I've seen them play!

    Anthrax at the Coal Exchange in Cardiff. Great gig - nothing better than seeing huge bands in small venues. Butcher Babies supported, and they're pretty terrible. Next will be Colne R&B festival up north, or Motorhead/Anthrax in November.

    Manchester Academy is nice venue, nice and small. Band were ok (I don't particularly care for them). Nice night out all in all.

    Last one i went to was Machine Head in Dresden last November, wich was fucking epic. Before that i saw Iron Maiden in Berlin, wich was fucking epic too.

    Thinking about visiting Stone Sour in December, but its in the middle of the week and im kinda broke

    I realy would like to see Tool, Godsmack and Disturbed some day (they all play rarely in germany, boo) as well as Dream Theater again (the first time i saw them it was on a crappy fastivalish thing where they had only 1,5h playtime, wich definitely is too short for DT).

    That bandlist from Reading looks quite nice, FF is definetly on my "have to see" list aswell!

    Have seen a few nice ones as of late

    First saw Profane Omen, Amoral and Ensiferum
    Profane Omen are not that bad, but had issues getting the crowd moving
    Amoral was ok, but not great, was fun watching through
    Ensiferum was fucking brilliant, just as good if not better live then recorded, also got the crowd going nicely and chanting along

    After that it was Wisdom, Eluveitie and Sabaton
    Wisdom was balls, pretty boring to watch, but may been since it's not really my cup of tea as far as music goes
    Eluveitie was pretty great, it's somewhat tricky taking a band whose singer goes seamlessly from playing a flute to growling or bouncing around on stage with a sackpipe seriously, but a lovely lesson in how folk-metal weaves different types of music together
    Now, sabaton... i mean, i don't normally like them much, but goddamn, they did put on one awesome show
    Having a band do a song with a lyric segment going "My time is coming, This era is drawing towards it's end. All of Stockholm see's me being crowned, cannons shoot salute", in swedish (supposedly first time ever live), in stockholm, that was a pretty awesome experience

    Next week, it's time for Raubtier

    Rocktober best tober
