L.A. GUNS : European Tour Including UK Dates August/September 2018


After more than a decade apart, Tracii Guns and Phil Lewis reunited under the L.A. Guns’ banner and in 2017 released one of the most critically praised albums in their catalogue with ‘The Missing Peace’ (Frontiers).

A pretty fucking glorious throwback, with all the bombastic screamalong choruses and dive-bombing flash-guitar heroism you can handle. It’s a ripper”  CLASSIC ROCK

Landing on several sales charts, the band’s legion of fans agreed with the consensus of how good the album is. The band’s rediscovered energy and enthusiasm was also displayed on the recently released live CD and video ‘Made In Milan’.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
