Rambling Man 2017: The Big Review

Live Review

Venue: Mote Park, Maidstone, Kent

The weather may not have been fair for Ramblin’ Man, but the rock’n’roll won out over the rain


“Where is everybody?” asks Graham Bonnet, resplendent in a fluorescent pink jacket. With existing ticket holders expected to pay for a last-minute additional day in 2017 and the rain tipping it down at 4.20 on a Friday afternoon, it’s no wonder the attendance is somewhat thin. However, there’s no doubt that the ex-Rainbow/MSG/Alcatrazz singer is in fine voice.

No Ronnie James Dio holograms are necessary as Last In Line dust down a set of Dio standards, plus a smattering of self-penned songs you feel like you know but aren’t entirely sure.
