  • What a great list scotvip. Mr Halofan saw Tangerine dream a few years back. His tastes cover various genres eg. this year he has seen yes recently, last year he went to see The Cravats and proudly wears their tshirt lol! I love a bit of variety. Nothing like a live gig to get the adrenaline flowing

  • I’m to young to have made it to see any of these great artists people have mentioned perform however I have been to see Australian Pink Floyd Kasabian the Courteeners Elbow all of which were really good Gigs My Dad used to be a singer in a Band Called LYF pronounced Life and they did covers of Genesis Bowie simple minds and music of that genre 


  • Oh I saw simple minds live twice. Great band. I really like Elbow too. My son keeps me up to speed with current sounds. He has definitely widened my music choices. I would never have entertained rap or hip hop in the past, however, really quite like kendrick lamarr and actually think Eminem latest where he samples Steve winwood is so good.
