Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

I'm hoping to go, I wanna get a PRS sc245 and I can't find one in shops near me or anywhere else I've been for that matter. I know if I go to music live I'll get one for a good price too.

Yea the tickets are roughly £17 each but if there is four or more of you get a family ticket it knocks a few quid of the price ,,,if ya want to know the exact cost mate go to this link and the ticket office number is there give em a call but i would think £17 is about right.
music live 2008

Oh and the car park is about £8.
my bagder stares at me.....
#18
Thats a pretty decent price for the ticket...
But like i'ld go if it was in London cuz i like the city too...
Birmingham doesn't quite sound very exciting to me...
#19
I went on a school trip for music a couple years back, it's pretty cool. Played some nice guitars and we stole a microphone worth £100. (it had fallen from the display box thing to the floor so we bagged it).

You say that....

Its a 45 minute flight to Birmingham Airport and the NEC is next door to the airport. So, it probably wouldn't take him much longer than it would for you to come from Cheshire...
#22
Yup, getting there is not much of a problem. Thanks to Ryan Air, i can get to Birmingham n come back in under 50eur. Which is pretty cheap. And it'll take me less time to get from Dublin to Birmingham than it takes me to get from my house to the city centre.
Its just staying in Birmingham. Its just doesn't sound as exciting as visiting London.

But i've never been to Birmingham... so well, try to buy me!

Its worth travelling from outer mongolia for this though ....saving me dough like mad want a Dean dimeoflame ......

Well....

There's the usual sh*t you find in cities - Museums, galleries, shops, statues and what not.

I'm sure the website does a better job at selling the place than I do...
