New Date for Madisons Rock Night 3 coming soon!

Hi everyone, just a wee update to let you know that we are very close to finalising a date for the next Madisons Rock Night. We hope to announce it sometime before the Motley Crue gig in Glasgow. Thanks for all your emails and support since the last one and also for your patience! Keep an eye on these pages over the next couple of weeks for any updates.

The Madisons Team

20/12/04

A Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year to everyone who came along and to those that couldn't make it to the last Madisons! Keep an eye on the web site for the new date for Madisons in 2005!

All the best...

The Madisons Team

A big thinks to everyone who came along!!!!

We hope you all enjoyed yourselves and that the night lived up to all your expectations meeting old faces, finding lost friends and rocking to some classic tunes...oh yeah and getting very very very drunk!

Although the day of the Madison's Hangover was a killer at our end and we're sure that a few of you out there felt it too we still really want to do it all over again as it was a brilliant laugh!

So what we now need is a bit of feedback to let us know whether in the cold light of day after all the hangovers have been and gone is if we should do it again! We have several options so please go to the message board poll Madisons Rock Night 3 and vote for one of the following...either '6 months', '1 year' or 'don't bother'. It's your feedback that will decide when the next Madisons Rock Night will be! The initial favourite at the moment after speaking to a few of you is that we go for it again in six months time but we need your backing so please place your vote or email us your preference!

Also please remember to send in your photo's of the night and we will put them on line in the photo gallery section as long as there's space.

Tonight is the night - Official Pre-Madisons Boozing at the Black Bull!

Max will be in the Black Bull from 6-8pm just like the old days having a pre-Madisons
Warm Up.
So if you fancy a drink before heading to Madisons you are all welcome...
...or there is also the Cameo Bar which is two mins walk from Madisons on Commercial
Street, it's a nice wee bar that's handy for Madisons but be warned it's not a rock pub.

There will be tickets available on the door at £10 each subject to availability as we are down to the last 50 tickets and we will try to sell any returns in the Black Bull so if you have any tickets that you cant use please bring them with you.

A big thanks to all of you who bought tickets and for supporting the Madisons Night!
We've had a blast putting it together, and we're so excited about Saturday!! We're sure it'll as good if not better than last year!

We've managed to get some great drinks promotions throughout the whole night thanks to Jagermeister and their scantily clad Jager-Girls who will be mingling on the night!

The Commplex are also ready for our boozing needs this year so there will be plenty of Newcy-Broon amongst other boozy delights - so no chance of the bar running dry this year!

As usual we are going to keep the website running and up to date kicking off with any photos
of the night!
†Plus if it's a success on Saturday and everyone is up for it we might
do this again next year. Give us feedback on the night and via the feedback page
afterwards, or get chatting about the night on the forums!

See you there for plenty of RAWK!

Unfortunately we didn't make it through to the Dreadnought on the 2nd or the 9th October but keep checking to see where we will be next!

26/09/04

We intend to be in the Dreadnought in Bathgate on either this Saturday coming (the 2nd) or Saturday the 9th October selling tickets. As soon as we know which night it will be we'll let you know.

 

We will also be at the Whitesnake gig in Glasgow Clyde Auditorium on Thursday the 7th October. We will be wearing our Madies T-Shirts and will be selling tickets.

The Van Hielan and Full Metal Racket gig was great last night. Both bands were excellent and we flyered the place senseless! After that we went on a fast track Madies promo pub tour flyering and selling tickets taking in The Oz bar (now a rock/bikers pub), The Southern, The Pear Tree, The Holyrood Tavern and of course the Bull! We then went up to the Firkin and the Jailhouse before finally ending up in Opium. The end result was a whole bundle of tickets sold and a few sore heads this morning! The response we got last night was really great and it looks like Madies is set to be another sell out! So remember and get your tickets early to avoid disappointment. 

 

28/08/04

We will also be at the VAN HIELAN gig supported by Full Metal Racket on Saturday 25th September in The Liquid Room in Edinburgh selling tickets. They are the UKs Number One Van Halen Tribute band and Full Metal Racket are an excellent rock band with the best name for a rock band that we've heard in ages! Check the bands out at their web sites...

The photogallery now has all the photos that we collected from last year but the thumb nails
are not displaying correctly in most of the folders. This seems to be caused by a problem that
our host sight are having with Microsoft Frontpage but we are working on it! However, in the meantime click on any of the links and you can see the full size picture without any problems.

There are some great shots in here that are more than worth a look!

For those of you who missed last years event and want to get a feel for what it was like check out the dance floor shots. There are plenty of nostalgic head banging shots and loads of other nonsense! We hope you enjoy them and are still working to resolve the thumbnail problem.

05/06/04
It's your first chance to buy tickets face to face as we will be in the Dreadnought on
Saturday 12th June for a boozy night out
and to hopefully sell some tickets! We wont be wearing our T-Shirts but we should be easy enough to find!
See you there!

Max was in the Bull from 9-10pm but there were no tickets to sell at that point as
all the returns so far were redistributed to the waiting list.†
However, we did add
to the waiting list for the tickets that may be returned. As soon as we have any free
those of you on the waiting list will be contacted and offered the chance to buy the
returned tickets.

16/11/03
The Sundowns are playing at Studio 24 and Julie will be in the The Bull beforehand
between 7pm - 8pm with tickets to sell, and then she will be at the Sundowns gig.
Ex-members of the Sundowns have been in some classic Madisons era bands...
The Crows, Joyriders, Little Hopetown Giants and the unforgettable...
Honeymoon Killers! Tix £4 from ripping and Tix Scotland or from
their website www.thesundowns.com It's an early show at 7pm finished by 10
cos its a school nite!

15/11/03 - Max never made it to the Spiders Web for the the Full Metal Racket Gig
due to a stinkin' hangover. Apologies to anyone who was waiting to buy their tickets, but there are other opportunities over the next week!

14/11/03 Max was in the Bull flyering and selling tickets. We sold another load of
tickets in the Bull and we probably wont have many tickets left to sell on the door!
Dont be left out - buy your tickets on line or face to face in the remaining days!

8/11/03 We will be in the Blind Beggar tonight around 9pm flyering and selling
tickets. Come along and get your ticket!

29/10/03
We will be in the Liquid Room to see Bowling for Soup on Wednesday
the 29th and if you can spot us in the crowd then come over, say hi and buy a
ticket!

26/10/03
The Dreadnought was as ever a top night out! We sold another
bundle of tickets and met a few old faces. We continued boozing long after
the Dreadnought had closed and Julie treated us to her pole dancing technique
in her living room. She was actually very good - god only knows where she
picked up that particular talent - and if I get my way we shall have a pole fitted
in the Commplex so that everyone can check out her pole-tastic moves!

25/10/03
We are off to the Dreadnought this Saturday (tonight) to bring the
Madisons night out to the West and hopefully sell some more tickets! We
wont be wearing our T-Shirts but we should be easy enough to find!
See you there!

19/10/03
As requested we have added in a guest book/message board so that you
can get in touch with old friends or start up a bit of chat. To enter the Madisons
Banter Zone click here: All you need to do is create an account and you

We were in the BLACK BULL on Saturday and it was great to see
so many faces from the past! We sold tons of MADISONS ROCK NIGHT tickets
and the night is now guaranteed to be a success! They are selling fast so be
sure to get yours soon! We flyered everything that moved and everything that
didn't, looking like a bunch of eejits wearing our Madisons t-shirts. We finished
the night off in Opium in the Cowgate and we had a brilliant laugh - apart from
the hangovers that is!!! Roll on the 22nd!
