+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Music Live runs at Birmingham NEC from November 7-9. Described as the UK’s most vibrant music-making event, it features the latest and greatest gear from the world’s most famous brands, from electric guitars to software, drums to amplification and more and boasts an exhibition area “crammed full of stuff to get your hands on”.

Highlights include:

* The busiest musical instrument exhibition in the UK, with guitars, drums, synths and recording equipment on display from the world’s biggest brands including Marshall, Gibson, Fender, Yamaha, Roland, Paul Reed Smith and countless more. With hundreds of instruments available for visitors to get their hands on and retail partners on-site to facilitate great show-only deals Music Live is like the country’s biggest music shop.
* An eclectic Live Stage line-up covering blues, classic rock, acoustic and modern Brit Rock. Artists confirmed for the show include Stone Gods (formed from the ashes of The Darkness), fast-rising UK rockers Mexicolas and The Electric City and Thin Lizzy/Whitesnake rhythm section Tommy Aldridge and Marco Mendoza.
* Megadeth frontman and metal legend Dave Mustaine appearing at the show each day for signing sessions/meet-and-greets with fans on the Marshall amplification stand.
* Education Day on Friday, November 7, when in excess of 8000 students from around the UK visit the show, taking advantage of careers and music production seminars hosted by big-name industry producers, engineers and managers.
* Joe Bonamassa playing the Live Stage on Saturday November 8 and delivering an exclusive ‘Blues In The Schools’ seminar on Education Day. BITS sees Joe tracing the history of the blues from its roots in the 1800s to the varied genre it is today. This will be the first time the masterclass has been conducted in the UK.
* The Gibson tourbus on-site during the show, with visitors allowed a glimpse of what life is like on the road at selected times.

Packed full of exhibitors, a room full of electrifying guitar performances, and now a star studded line-up of guests headed by none other than Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones Manson’s Guitar Show is sure to be one of the major guitar events of 2008.

Held over two days at Exeter's Riverside Leisure Centre, the guest artist line-up (with more names being confirmed daily) includes world class demonstrators on behalf of major manufacturers such as Marshall, Ampeg, Alvarez, Peerless, Goodfellow, Music Man, Paul Reed Smith and Manson Guitars.

Saturday’s performances will be headlined by Martin Barre, guitarist with Jethro Tull since 1969. Guests appearing during the weekend also include Justin Hawkins, the former flamboyant frontman of The Darkness and now Hot Leg.
