The Tedeschi Trucks Band are known for their great live performances. Epic sets where – in the time honoured Grateful Dead and Allman Brothers traditions – anything can happen. Many of their previous live shows have been shared by fans, but few match the grandness of their set a couple of nights ago at the LOCKN’ Festival.
Eric Clapton is more than fairly represented when it comes to concert DVD releases. In fact, these stretch to seventeen different releases at the close of 2018. However, most of these feature festival shows from after 1999 and only really represent the latter stages of the legendary musician’s career.
When Smashing Pumpkins made their one and only UK stop in London on the first leg of the much anticipated ‘Shiny & Oh So Bright Tour’, it was an utterly thrilling experience. A mammoth three hour audio-visual extravaganza, the set made fantastic use of video screens and costume changes. Despite being in a huge, impersonal venue, it truly felt special – a show in every sense. [A full review of the night can be found here.]
