Nine Inch Nails, Forum, Copenhagen, May 13 2014 – report
May 2014 30

During their current European leg of the world tour Nine Inch Nails stopped by in Copenhagen. A friend and me drove from Gothenburg to enjoy the reinvented band, and my personal hope of a great show after seeing the web broadcast from Lollapalooza last autumn was high. I was not disappointed, however the show was not as grand as the stateside version.

Alison Moyet, Cardiff October 19 & Bristol October 20, 2013 – report
Nov 2013 01

This May Alison Moyet released her album “The Minutes”, her first since the 2007’s “The Turn”. It is a more electronic album then her last couple of adventures and when a tour promoting the album was announced I immediately looked for suitable dates to attend. Oddly enough the only dates I could manage was Bristol and Cardiff, which perhaps is not my first choice of cities to visit, but they both proved to be nice destinations. I really enjoyed the concerts which included 4 Yazoo songs.
