Duane Day wrote on Big Big Train's wall: Here's my review of what turned out to be the last gig of the North American leg of the Anderson Rabin Wakeman tour. It was originally scheduled for November 25 then postponed due to Trevor Rabin's illness (some virus originally thought to be pneumonia), so it was an add-on date. (2 comments)

Paul Turner wrote on Big Big Train's wall: The following is why this shit needs sorting. Failed to get Marillion ticket today in spite of being on site seconds after noon. Checked out Viagogo when I got home. Circle ticket £118+change in Q original face value £45. Not exactly the best seat in house. OK check proceed and see what happens. What happens is that a further £50 gets added in BF VAT and whatever other crap they decide is worthy. That fifty quid is more than the ticket, BF, postage and the travel cost by car from Rotherham to... (15 likes, 22 comments)

Rob Walker posted a video on Big Big Train's wall: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CuwqpjNL9Ps It's that time of the year when we get inundated with the 'best albums of 2016'. It's generally a list of the usual suspects and a couple of new or lesser known bands. My favorite new band is Red Bazar. All you need to do is read the lyrics while listening to the music and you will agree, I'm sure, that this is a GREAT band. The story telling is on-par with David & Greg's ability to create visions of grandeur while playing some of the best, soph... (3 likes, 5 comments)

Bo Johnson posted a video on Big Big Train's wall: Didn't someone recently post something about a violin and a drainpipe? How about three strings and a shovel? Get enough garden instruments together and we could have a band called…wait for it…Hedgerow. (15 likes, 6 comments)

Graeme Scarfe wrote on Big Big Train's wall: So, here's the thing. I've got 2 tickets for next October's Marillion gig at the Royal Albert Hall. One for me (long time fan) and one for my wife (died-in-the wool Marillion atheist). Need to compile playlist to get her primed for maximum enjoyment. Any ideas? (3 likes, 7 comments)
Paul Turner posted a photo on Big Big Train's wall: I've got the bad stuff off my chest today so now I will add the sports news. After falling behind 2-0 to her arch rivals Burning Shed Nellie Pitts ensures an exciting finale by pulling a goal back and making it 2-1 as the EP by the new Touchstone arrives. Thank you Nellie.

Graeme Wright posted a photo on Big Big Train's wall: This may be of interest to some of you. The Mute Gods' debut, Do Nothing Til You Hear From Me is one of my many better buys this year. The multi talented Nick Beggs and his cohorts (including a certain Nick D'Virglio) are well worth a listen https://www.facebook.com/InsideOutMusic/posts/10154793430590439:0 (5 likes, 2 comments)

Andreas Mowinckel posted a link to Big Big Train's wall: Hrm .. cough,cough... In the spirit of Christmas and all that stuff .. If the mods find this inappropriate, feel free to remove of course. But as there are a few people here who enjoy the works and humour of Tiger Moth Tales' chief guitarist/keyboardist/bassist/lead & backing vocals performer Peter Jones, I would suggest donating some spare change in exchange for his take on some of our beloved (and hated) Christmas Classics Peter-style.
