Some mistake surely!

Shouldn't they ban TV's gigs before Alice's?

Ok, old Alice's show is a bit of "horror" and all that, but I heard he's "the son of a preacher man" and goes to church himself... So why ban him?  :P  ::)

God knows!

I understand that Alice is a born-again Christian addicted to golf. I'd ban him for the golf!

I saw the 'Theatre of Death' tour last night in Newcastle. Good fun, maybe a bit over the top-Alice gets killed 4 times as does his nurse.I liked the rodie being impaled though! For sale at all gigs is a memory stick with a mp3 recording of that night's gig-available after the show. Costs 20. I gave it a miss. He started really well but some of the song selection later could have been better. And where does he get these bloody awful drummers from? The current one is just as bad as the clown from Kiss. Support band Manraze were fucking awful. They did have a better drummer though.

I thought that Man Raze were not too bad - the guitar "heroics" were kept to a minimum. The first half of the set was better than the second as they had several songs that sounded like Thin Lizzy in the verses and sing-a-long, Faces/Quireboys type choruses and I can handle that. Interesting choice of cover versions - I never thought I'd see a Sex Pistol playing Jimi Hendrix any more than I thougth I'd see Def Leppard's guitarist playing Iggy and The Stooges! They obviously have a bit of a fan base already as several audience members were singing along to the songs.

Alice was great - best I've seen him. Only shame was that instead of getting "Elected" as the encore we got School's Out" again as Phil from Def Raze wanted to play with them! Killed four times - what more dyawant!
