Placebo, again? Well if you remembered the last time I reviewed Placebo in Birmingham I said they were very good live, so when my Dad got a couple of tickets for Christmas I wasn’t going to pass up seeing them again. At this point it’s become harder for them to impress me which they’ve already done in the past, but was it still a good show?

If I was to ask you about the band Placebo your initial reactions would either be “Who are Placebo” or “Placebo, good stuff”. Whilst not the most famous band who everybody knows about most people who do know about them seem to like them. First formed in 1996 they’ve been going for almost 20 years and whilst the time gap between album releases and touring is bigger than usual their live shows make it worth it. On December 12th me and my Dad went to see them at the O2 Academy in Brum.

When I heard Avenged Sevenfold were touring the UK I was excited. The last time they were over here was at Download 2011 when they opened for System of a Down. Now with the release of their number 1 album Hail to the King they did a whole European tour which ended in Birmingham, the one I went to see with Jimmy and his Dad.

Personally I enjoy watching TV game shows. They’re fun to play yourself at home and test your knowledge or to laugh at people who give daft answers. My personal favourite game show is the BBC series Pointless which is sort of like the inverse of Family Fortunes, instead of common answers you have to find obscure answers. Me and Dave went to see a live recording of it in London, but how was it?
