We'll never be city of culture until we have music venue
I have just seen the article regarding the upcoming music heading our way.
Let's Rock features some 80s has-beens; Little Mix is just four girls who dance to backing tracks; Take That ditto. Reload will just be the same as Let's Rock.
If that's music – I'm a martian!
Where is the music for rock fans? It's a good job we have the Brickies in Sprowston – it is the only chance to see bands play real music.
You may also want to watch:
Tom Jones, Cliff, Thetford Forest might be OK if that floats your boat, but why oh why can't we have an outdoor festival of rock music with Metallica, Saxon, Europe, Thunder, Black Stone Cherry, Soundgarden.
These bands have all played at Knebworth and Donnington, if these places can accommodate them, why can't Norwich?

We will never be a city of culture unless we build a proper purpose built concert venue.
That £180million wasted on the NDR could have been used for such a venue.
