Selected reviews for this venue:
John Mayall (19/11/14) - Great but...
The concert was really good although being the 80th Anniversary Tour I wouldve liked to hear more of the sound from throughout those years but excellent all the same! The drummer was superb and really brought things together, however the crowning glory of the evening went to King King, the support band who really rocked and I have already booked my tickets to see them at Band on the Wall in Manchester on 14 March 2015, they were really amazing and Alan Nimmos solo really was the best and most original I have ever heard
