Selected fan reports for events at this venue Rock City Nottingham
Graham Parker and The Rumour
Wonderful, a step back in time from Anni [Stan], 04/06/14
Parker and the Rumour have not lost their old magic, was so excited when they started up with Fools Gold and Hotel Chambermaid, was transported back to 1978, (couldnt stop my self dancing/pogo-ing) my only disappointment was that they didnt wind-up with Long Emotional Ride..... some of their new stuff is just as good as some of the old.... Fantastic Night (and it was great to be back at Rock City after many years).
I had surgery the next day - if it had gone wrong I would have died happy!
Black Star Riders
superb show from neil white, 16/12/13
With only Scott Gorham left from the original Thin Lizzy line-up, a name change was probably a good idea, but boy, can these guys rock. The standard of musicianship was outrageously good, but they played as a band and were very polished. Starting with the title track off the new album All Hell Breaks Loose, the set was a brilliant blend of Thin Lizzy songs old and new together with tracks from the new album. Ricky Warwick makes a fine front man, and with him on guitar as well, we had a three guitar version of the classic harmony-guitar sound. As well as playing fantastically, the guys actually looked like they were enjoying themselves. Plenty of audience involvement, we were left wanting more. Top show.
Fantastic Evening from Tarpers, 22/04/13
With Redline opening the evening, I had not seen these guys before, but would now recommend them. They were followed by The Quireboys, who were clearly out for a good evening, They were a bundle of fun and were clearly enjoying the gig. Then came the Main event Saxon, Nibbs was just a bundle of energy, while Doug and Paul were on their best form, Nigels drum solo was enthralling. But what can you say about Biff, he conducted the crowd and the crowd responded with both new songs from Sacrifce along with pretty much all of their classics. A really good night was had by all, the bands and the crowd.......All in all will definately see them again....
