Tori Amos & Aerosmith

The summer gigs are starting to be announced and a couple of interesting ones have immediately jumped out at me.

Tori Amos is playing two dates at the beginning of July (3rd/4th at the Hammersmith Apollo) but alas I think I may be missing these ones. I've seen Ms Amos several times over the last 14 years and she is a fantastic performer. But tickets for these shows are just under £40 each!!! I'm sorry but I'm finding it hard to pay that sort of money for what is, in essence, a regular evening gig with main band plus support.

Aerosmith have also announced a gig at Hyde Park on Sunday 24th June. Now this is just over £50 but the differences here is that it will be an all day event (and possibly have multiple stages if it's anything like the Hyde Park gigs I went to last year) and I've strangely enough never actually seen Aerosmith live. I've caught Steve Tyler and Joe Perry coming on as special guests at a gig (for a Bon Jovi show back in 89 or 91!) and I'd like to catch them as a complete band for old times sake more than anything else.

Also I note that The Klaxons are supporting Muse at Wembley Stadium so if Muse wasn't enough (and Muse are one of the best live bands I've ever seen) the rest of the bill sounds like it could be pretty interesting. And all for just over £40 (eat that Ms Amos!).

I wasn't all that happy when I saw Tori Amos. The problem for me was that it was only her and a few pianos. I wanted more.

I've been lucky enough to catch her a handful of times over the years and all bar one of her shows I've enjoyed immensely. The last time I saw her, in 2005, (which was the first time for a one of my friends who'll probably read this and take me to count because she loved the show - Hi Dee :p) I was disappointed. At her best she can really captivate the whole audience with just her and a piano on stage.

My favourite of her shows was in a theatre back in 1993/4 and then at Glastonbury Festival in 1998.

It'll probably be part of my "never mind I'm not going to Glastonbury" shows :p

If you're not at Glasto's we should team together and raise a posse!

It's been about 13 years since I saw Aerosmith last. I may actually be up for going if I had someone to go with.

Ooh, I'd love to see Tori Amos finally. 40 quid is indeed a bit ouch, though. Bloody ticket prices. :o(

Aerosmith were absolutely fantastic the two times I've seen them in the early 90s. Steven Tyler's antics carry the show and if he can still pull them off, it'll be worth it.
