    I don’t know what sort of music you’re into but i know that The Rabble and The King Cannons (both NZ bands) are going to england around July/August and will be playing gigs there.

    Not sure what style of music you are into but I’m seeing a whole heap of Hard Rock/80’s Rock and Heavy Metal festivals while I’m over in Europe. I doubt that is what you are into :-P But if you are drop me a line Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Most of the gigs i’m going to are in July/August – Wacken open air (Germany), Party San Festival (Germany), Zwarte Crosse (The Netherlands) and Bloodstock Open Air (UK). Download and glastonbury are on in the uk at some stage but I won’t be able to make them.

    There is always something happening in London though, even if it is just a few sideshows you should still see something cool Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hayden, you have no idea how jealous I am of you. Wacken would be the ultimate metal experience!!! I think I’m going to have to settle for whoever turns up in London from August onwards… I’m hoping to see some of the many bands that would never come to Australia and I hear there’s something new on every night!
    Some friends are going to Graspop… heard about that? It sounds like one of the best!

    Dude come to Bloodstock open air, it is on from the 15th of August (from memory) in the UK. Really good lineup!

    I can’t wait for Wacken! I’ve been wanting to go for ages and now it’s actually happening I am stoked. Seeing Maiden again but with 60,000 people this time is going to rule!

    I would like to get to Graspop but can’t get there this time unfortunately.

    pollstar.com is a good site that has concert listings for many major and minor acts all around the globe. I’m not sure if it’s more of an American site though, since sometimes listings for some cities can be light. But I think you could find what you’re looking for there.

    Hey guy & girls

    I just found a really cool website www.worldeventsguidecom.
    It allows you to search any city and type of event you want to go to (i.e. London, concerts). Its pretty good, i’ve just been checking out the running of the bulls & tomato fest in spain. Definately keen to check out some bands over there to aye.

    Hey bec & Bexing good to hear you guys stocking up on the NZ clothing. I’ve already packed the All Blacks jersey & RPM NZ tees. When are you guys heading over?

    Hayden – I didn’t realise At The Gates were playing Bloodstock… I think I’ll have to make a special effort to get there for them alone. It seems like a pretty decent line up with a lot of bands that rarely tour Australia!!!
    Put something like this on in Oz and all of about 100 people will turn upSmiler<!--graemlin::)-->
    I missed Iron Maiden in February so maybe they’ll play in the UK sometime while I’m there. That would be awesome!

    Hey man, I know what you mean! I’m seeing them twice, as well as the Carcass reunion show at Wacken. I’m starting to get pretty excited Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->
