BEST OF 2017: ANDY’S GIGS 20-1


The best gigs Andy went to this year. Number one is not a shock 

When I started reviewing things, years ago, it was only gigs. MVM’s Donnie, suggested that I started a blog about every gig I went to.

So I did. In 2010. And I’ve reviewed every one since, give or take a couple that others have done.

Anyway, the point to all this is pretty simple – without the gig reviews there is no MV. Which is why I go to so many. This year it’s been 108. There’s no preamble needed here.

Here from 10-1 are the best.

  1. MONSTER TRUCK 17/03/2017 O2 Institute 2, Birmingham

The sound of organ drenched rock n roll personified

  1. KING KING 04/03/2017 Robin 2

The finest blues band on planet rock – I wrote it, they use it on their PR, but its true.

  1. BLACK STAR RIDERS 18/03/2017 O2 Institute, Birmingham

The best hard rock band in Britain give a masterclass

  1. TYLER BRYANT AND THE SHAKEDOWN 02/12/2017 Castle And Falcon, Birmingham

Support to everyone, Tyler owns the small stage

  1. BITERS 07/04/2017 O2 Academy, Birmingham

Opening for Blackberry Smoke, they might just be the most exciting rock n rollers on earth right now

  1. WALTER TROUT 17/10/2017 Robin 2, Bilston

The godfather of blues? There is no one better

  1. THE PICTUREBOOKS 05/10/2017 The Flapper, Birmingham

You probably had to be there. Sweaty, unhinged and brilliant

  1. JASON ISBELL AND THE 400 UNIT 31/10/2017 Symphony Hall, Birmingham

Incredible display from the ex-Drive By Truckers man

  1. GUNS N ROSES 17/06/2017 London Stadium

Any other year, they’d have won this. Axl and the boys roll back the years

  1. BLACK SABBATH 04/02/2017  Genting Arena, Birmingham

There could have been only one winner, though. In truth we could have picked both of the shows, but the Saturday wins out. The greatest ever until the end.
