Riverside is so great.  I need to revisit them...it's been a while.  Didn't one of the members die or something shitty happen to the band not too long ago?

Venue holds 900. It was busy but not sold out. Maybe 700 people.

Guitarist Piotr Grudziński died of a heart attack in 2016. They haven’t permanently replaced him, they’re using a touring guitarist for gigs and guests in the studio. The guitarist last night was good but I didn’t think he had the melodic fluidity of Piotr.

Just back from seeing Riverside at the Electric Ballroom in Larndan.
Took Mrs Slikk tonight. Better than last night it was LOUDER.

Four gigs in five nights. I'm knackered. They were all quality. Why Riverside aren't bigger I don't know. Mariusz is better than Geddy.

I agree. Riverside should be at least as big as DT.

2019 lineup so far:

 

Eric Johnson (March)

Dream Theater (April)

Goo Goo Dolls (July)


It looks like Riverside will be in the US in May for a festival date in Florida. Hopefully they can get a small tour going like they've done in years past. It would be nice to see them for a 3rd time.

Your wish has been granted :D They’ll be touring in the USA next year. Doesn’t mean they’ll be anywhere within 500 miles of you though.

In March and April 2019 we will continue our European adventure and soon we will announce new countries and dates on top of Scandinavia, the UK and the Netherlands. We are also happy to let you know that in May 2019 we will start touring the USA and Canada.

Thanks. I have my fingers crossed. 2 tours ago they played Raleigh, NC which is only 150mi away.

I think it might be.

Amazing how they’ve kept a career going. “Hootie” especially.

With that amount of glare, I'd say it probably is.  

 

And just for the record, I'd have at least that amount of glare coming off my shorn noggin...  :D

 

And what's up, Tony third line?

Just got back from seeing the Von Hertzen Brothers in Sheffield.

Surprised they came back as about six went to see them last year, All six returned though, as did 200 or so more.

If you've never heard them check them out. three genuine brothers from Finland, plus a Finnish drummer and a moronic keyboard player from Sweden. Sweden, *sniggers* Lots of harmonies, bit like a cross between Muse and Foo Fighters - but better - with loads of Queen mixed in.

 

Oh, and NOT Baldie Pete.
