Bury 2016

General Discussion of IQ and music in general
Thu Apr 14, 2016 10:07 pm

  • Yippee. To counteract my disappointment at missing out on Summer's End I have purchased tickets for Bury. Looking forward to the refurbished venue revived and reborn. Some superb gigs here; who can forget the very first Subby gig, the back from the dead gig, the non working bass gig, the non guitar intro gig, the non working mic gig, the gig where Forever Live was first sold etc and other memorable gigs. All have been superb. I have been to them all.
    Sorry, can't make the London gig so with all that's happening personally and gig wise this will round off a momentous year.
    Main event despite Boss, Neil, Gilmour and the boys, including the Subby film though, will be my daughter's wedding. She's called Kayleigh; yes that one. So I'm looking forward to including a couple of lines from that song and also winding my future son in law up re his dislike, bordering on hatred of all things prog; he calls it twiddly bollocks, into my speech.
    My daughter is a secret prog head having been force fed, though in public she says she'd rather have her face peeled off.
    See you all at Bury, then at Bilston in 2017.

  • No Summer's End for me as well. So there's a 30 weeks' gap without any IQ gig (as far as I know) between the one in Malmö and the one in Bury. It was a really nice weekend last year, so I think about to do it again.

    You only live once... :)

    <edit> Booked! :)

  • So glad this gig sneaked in, won't be able to make either of the Christmas shows this year due to new job shifts. But unless there was a temporary technical glitch or something, the very handy Premier Inn just 5 minutes walk from The Met seems not to have any rooms for the 5th November.

  • Yes, we're excited to finally be able to announce the date of this year's Bury gig. Looking forward to seeing you all there in the wizzy new refurbished surroundings. The main hall will be bigger and there will even be a balcony for those of us of a certain age who quite like the idea of sitting down for a gig these days. Not me, of course, I'll be standing up most of the time. Lucky old Cookie and Neil, though, eh?

  • Hmm, interesting requests. I imagine the live set may well change a fair bit between now and November. Personally, I wouldn't mind giving The Province and Ten Million Demons another go, but we'll see how things work out in rehearsals...

    Go for it! Go for it! Two tracks we haven't heard live anywhere near enough!

    Am I pushing my luck asking for Further Away too :wink: ?

    Still my all-time favourite IQ track, too. An early version was played 1991 at the Paradiso in Amsterdam - so it's a kind of 25th anniversary of that track this year if I see it right... ;-)

  • 'Further Away' is a hard track to get right. (Not that that's reason enough NOT to play it live, of course.) For me, it has some great moments and I wouldn't be opposed to having a crack at it in rehearsal. It would take up a sizeable chunk of the set, though. Just saying...

    Yes, we did indeed play an unfinished version of it at The Paradiso many hundreds of years ago. Funny story: at the time, it didn't have a title. I probably introduced it as 'Newie' or something, but 'further away' was a lyric in that embryonic version we were trying out. A few months later, a bootleg CD of that gig appeared (called 'Headlong', if memory serves) with the track listed as 'Further Away'. "Hmmm," thought I at the time, "that's actually not a bad title for the song." And whaddya know, it stuck!

  • Said boot happened my way many many moons ago. Now, I believe my good friend Mick and his sons Chris and Andrew and I saw FA played at old Marquee the night that Tim was invited on stage to play Headlong. I've also seen it played at least an other time, must consult my set lists.

    I have a copy of that bootleg, but didn't listen to it for many years. I also don't know where I bought it, but it looks very professional.
    Funny is that the record is called "Headlong", which isn't on the track list. :)

  • We couldn't get into the Premier Inn either. Relegated to the B&B down the road.

  • In the early "zeros", this Headlong boot was even in a CD rent store, here around Uden :!:

  • Looks like emails have been sent out to say The Met won't be ready by 5 November and gig has been rescheduled for Saturday 21st January 2017.

    Oh well, a weekend in Manchester it will be then as hotel room non-refundable.... Any other gigs going on in the area?
