Steve Hammond posted a photo on Big Big Train's wall: After a very stressful 30 minutes (clicked on the second they opened the booking link and was placed 291 in a queue, which took 16 minutes!), I managed to purchase 2 central stalls tickets for Kraftwerk at Symphony Hall. They'd then sold out online so I called the B.O. and asked if there were any singles nearby. Luckily, they had one in the left box of the Circle. Julie Hammond and Mark Busby Burrows; we'll be seeing them, 36 years after Julie and I first saw them, for one twentieth of the price... (15 likes, 3 comments)
Shawn Dudley posted a link to Big Big Train's wall: Awesome. I bought a used copy of the Band Of Gypsys LP for .25 cents at a thrift store when I was a teenager. I already owned the Smash Hits LP, but I had yet to fully grasp Hendrix. But when I heard Who Knows and Machine Gun my perception of guitar playing and of music in general changed forever. I played that LP every day for weeks and it just kept getting more powerful with each repetition. Looking forward to hearing the first set complete. I've heard most of this material but this is a...

Chris Parkins posted a photo on Big Big Train's wall: Just managed to get some Kraftwerk tickets for next June at the Albert Hall. Haven't seen them since 1980 in Birmingham. Tickets a bit more expensive than last time - especially as I was on the guest list last time as I knew the guys doing the lighting. (3 likes, 1 comment)

Jeff Robertson posted a link to Big Big Train's wall: Wait...a prog review in Rolling Stone? Jay Z and Kanye must not have anything new going on. It's not much and you might quibble with the comparisons but it's a start. I wonder if RS has even heard of our Intrepid 8? (1 like)

Jim Trainer posted a video on Big Big Train's wall: Thinking of my parents. As a kid I was obsessed with music. The first thing I did in the morning was to switch on the turn table and I'd fall asleep each night listening to music. When my mum died I didn't play anything for so long. A long time after I asked my dad if I could play my records - he just asked me to play it quietly - I so wanted to blow the windows out. Dark Side of the Moon was the album I played. This would have been a better choice. Share this video (3 likes, 2 comments)

Every year, some 500 journalists are arrested, 1000 assaulted or threatened, and over 500 media outlets censored. Freedom of information is the foundation of any democracy. Yet almost half of the world’s population is still denied it. Support Reporters without Borders. (This is a promoted post on an unregistered Wallflux-feed)
