Fresh from the release of ‘Reiði,’ one of 2018’s most accomplished albums, South West three-piece Black Foxxes brought their unique blend of delicate-yet-urgent alt-rock to Newcastle. The incessant conflict of styles within Black Foxxes’ songs is what makes them such an engaging band and that stylistic clash was represented in their choice of support acts; […]

Fast forward to 2018 and they’re back here, playing at […]

Review: Mötley Crüe at Metro Radio Arena

Review: Mötley Crüe at Metro Radio Arena

Since 1981, the self proclaimed Saints of Los Angeles, Mötley Crüe have been rocking all over the world with their brand of sleaze filled, occasionally glammed up rock 'n' roll. But now, after 34 years, it is coming to an end.
