Kumpulan Wings ticket , a coincidence date and I didnt know that Ozzy played a long set even up to 2003 and Warrant and Kiss and whatever.
I got the tickets to see Wings on 16 September 2011 in Suntec Singapore. For those who dont know, Wings is a Malaysian rock band which has been around for about 25 years, and has been so very consistent and I had always enjoyed seeing them playing live in Malaysia and Singapore. I bought their first album on cassette when it first come out and nobody knows them, purely on words of mouth of friends at school on how good they are and now, decades later I still enjoy their music.
But something special about this show for me not is only it had been a long time since I had seen them in Singapore as past few years I only attend their shows in KL and JB. I think last show they did in Singapore that I attended was back in about 2003.
The Special Thing is -
I AM GOING TO SEE WINGS SITTING DOWN. THE SHOW IS ALL SEATS. AND I AM GOING TO BE VERY UNCOMFORTABLE AND IT WILL BE WEIRD FOR ME.
Sorry, but I dont like to sit down and watch a rock concert, unless its Esplanade. But I have no choice right? Or else I can choose not to attend.
Moving on... today is 28/8/2011, I was at work last night so I know the date as I opened/closed book at midnight.
Listening to a Maiden bootleg ( what else?? ), its the Reading 1982 festival, and I was meddling with my mp3 player and on the screen is stated the date of the recording.. ooo its 28 August 1982.
So its how long is it now? To follow Minoru Nihara's expletive words, its now 29 Fucking years.
And its a coincidence I listened to a recording made on its anniversary.
And, yes Nicko McBrain is someone we will always love, but hearing the fast and furious rendition of Murders In The Rue Morgue, and intro to Run To The Hills on this bootleg..
Well....Clive Burr always got that something attractive.
Ooo lets talk about Ozzy Osbourne, I am really not aware he played a spectacular long show, its so long that it takes a triple cd for the bootleg.
Seems its at Toronto Canada , during the days of SARS back in 2003.
Jason Newstead was on bass... but I hear it, I dont have any problem with the sound recording, but I dont like the drums, then he was using the Faith No More drummer, and I dont know, I just dont like the drums. So this is not a bootleg I will listen again although just check the setlist, a Black Sabbath celebrations on top of Ozzy's solo hits...and we get Miracle Man too.
Ok Ok Lets talk about the hottest rock n roll band in the world - KISS.
And check out this soundboard from Japan during the I think Revenge tour??
Not only Heaven, but Hell is also on Fire on seeing the songs on this show..Their famous songs all the way...
And lastly, Jani Lane death has me trying to absorb Warrant beyond their Heaven and I Saw Red... and this is a nice , super nice show... and its again what looks like a soundboard.
