Concert Reviews, Songs Beginning with T

This page is for reviews of concerts people have seen during the 80s and reviews of tours that more recently focus on vintage 80s groups (like Depeche Mode or Bow Wow Wow, etc.). The first reviews here are from the old message board, so they might look a little familar. Hope no one minds me reformatting their original messages.

"Tribal Tech" / April 6, 1989
Like its predecessors, Henderson's third date as a leader is a fine example of how creative and inspired genuine jazz-rock can be. Tough and aggressive yet full of appealing melodic and harmonic nuances, this CD contains not one iota of the type of lightweight smooth jazz or muzak for which Henderson has often voiced his contempt. With Nomad, Tribal Tech underwent a few personnel changes, and for the first time, recorded an entire album minus a sax. While electric bassist Gary Willis, drummer Steve Houghton and percussionist/mallet player Brad Dutz remained, saxman Bob Sheppard was gone, and keyboardist Pat Coil had been replaced by David Goldblatt. Despite these changes, Tribal Tech's sound (which was essentially guided by Henderson and Willis) remained easily recognizable. The '70s breakthroughs of Weather Report, Return to Forever and John McLaughlin, among others, still had an impact on Tribal Tech, but by 1988, it was even more evident that Henderson was a fine soloist and composer in his own right.

"The Tubes" / Oh Man in the 80's is all I remember!
Having a broad range of music I enjoyed in the 80's in the general Rock era, I have at times enjoyed other "new" material of that day. One concert that absolutely blew me away was a concert by The Tubes! Now I've seen bands in concert from Babe Ruth, Foreigner, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Aerosmith, Neil Young, Ted Nugent, Jethro Tull and Supertramp to name just a few. None compared to the theatrics as The Tubes did. Each and every second of this concert was mind-blowing! The sound was rich and inviting and most of all, the band was flawless! When people ask me what the best concert I've seen was I immediately without hesitation answer THE TUBES!!!

"Two tones/ Madness" / 20th December 1999
I was very excited about going to this concert since i have been a madensss fan for numerous years and they didnt disappoiint me this time. I first heard of madness back in 1982 when there first and only number one The house of fun was released in to the charts. But i got the chance to see them at Newcastle at the telewest arena. To put a long story short they where brillant. They started of with The Prince an altime classic Ska song. Then progressed doing songs like Our house to Baggy Trousers it was brillant night
