Longest Set?

Last week I went to watch Pearl Jam play at Leeds. They hit the stage at 8.20, and were due it finish at around 11. However, they were on it. Obviously enjoying it, as were the crowd, so they eventually finished at 10 minutes to midnight. A three and a half hour set. As we know, other such as Spring...

I had the pleasure of seeing Pearl Jam at Leeds this week. How to describe it? Epic, will have to suffice. They were simply awesome. Passion, huge musical ability, and classic setlist. On stage at 8.20, and left at 11.50! 36 songs! Wish I had made it to Milton Keynes last night. But hopefully, they ...

I am sure that poster is up there somewhere now.

Re: Photosynthesis t-shirt

People outside shows are generally part of organised crime groups, really fucking nasty people. Online bootlegging, well it's less openly criminal but it's still unauthorised. Merch is one of the main ways I make a living (now that people don't but record; also, while I make a profit touring the UK...

Re: US Tour 2013

I was visiting San Francisco last month, and was delighted to find Frank Turner was playing at The Fillmore. The concert was truly awesome. Frank and the band were in fine form. We were knackered and our voices were hoarse at the end of it. Equally good was The Fillmore. A magnificent, historic venu...
