lol! :lol:

Sadly I'd have to agree with the Hard Rock Cafe...its really crappy, although the one in London is amazing (Both Satriani and Vai guitars, John Lennons glasses too :shock: )

theres a load of clubs bars pubs but its more of a dance scene
main places from what i remember

are broad street
john bright street
all round

there used to be a fantastic rock club edwards and the koster monga (excuse the spelling)

the best thing i can suggest is taking a look at this site
http://www.birminghamuk.com/entertainment.htm

by the way how long are you staying on for

as theres the stourbridge rock cafe but its a fair distance from brum city
there's a few great places closer to my place live bands at many a pub one belonging to my ex..lol
its called the hop pole inn in bromsgrove i think you can look up whats on there over the weekend
hope thats helped..i think these days brum city is more of a dance scene really but the beer flows..hehe

Looks like he's going to be playing 'Searching' as well - that should be amazing...I reckon that'll probably be one that changes every night as it sounds almost completely improvised on the album.

'Searching' is a killer tune! It will be great to hear Satch SINGING on a new one too. All of the album has a very live sound and is fantastically produced, hopefully we'll get to hear alot of it...

Guys & gals,
Anyone know about photo equipment policy at Arrowrock? I'd like to bring a camera.

Thanks.

Hope it's possible Jeroenn! Would be cool to make your own Live G3 Video!
All of you who are going (hate that i'm not one of you!!) have a good show (know you will!!) and drink one for those who are not going (like me :cry:).

I'm glad though, i've seen Steve with MPO. But would have been cool to see a G3 concert again. Fill me in how it was guys.

ps. I thought you wure not going Jeroenn?

Hey dude, I'm not taking a video camera.. :) Just a digital photo camera I borrowed from my brother.

You're right, I wasn't. But the appointment I had fell through a while ago. I never gave it a second thought, because I assumed it was sold out. I mean, the MPO shows were sold out in like January.. :) But Mikey reminded me a couple of days ago, and I gave their website a look, and there it was, tickets still available. So the next morning I got one at the postoffice, and here I am ready for another mindblowing evening!

I think Mikey said a while ago about the US tour, is that the official word is that no cameras are allowed at G3 shows...I presume that still applies with the European shows too. :(
