Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some old bands, some new, and topped by Walter trout - brilliant value! Would happily have paid entry fee just to see Walter Trout, but we had the chance to see a whole lot of old bands like the Climax Blues Band and Dr.Feelgood, plus a load of younger blues talent. The venue worked well, especially the unreserved seating which allowed easy access to stand in front of the stage when needed! The toilets and facilities worked well, with no problem taking the air outside between acts. Impressed by the friendly staff at the Arena. Maybe some improvements could be made to the range at the bar (they ran out of low alcohol beer), and the catering. Look forward to the next event.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inaugural Leicester Blues Festival is Brilliant! I was lucky enough to attend this blues extravaganza. Superb bill headed by the incomparable Walter Trout. Walter wears his emotions on his sleeve and is candid about his near-death experience over recent years. This is reflected in his songs such as 'Almost Gone'. I always knew he was a phenomenal guitarist but I hadn't quite realised what an impressive singer he is. Backed by a brilliant band and supplemented by a guest appearance of Stephen Dale Petit, Leicester could not have got off to a better start. I also enjoyed Stacie Collins who blows a mean mouth harp and has a powerful voice. She and her band couldn't have given more on stage. An interesting mix of blues & country offered something different. I also enjoyed The Groundhogs who played many of their classic songs. I only knew the drummer, Ken Pustelnik. But they still sound good and could have easily played for another hour. The Climax Blues Band played 4 or 5 new songs which sounded jazzy and soulful. It's good to see they still have the creativity to write new songs and do not have to rely solely on an excellent back catalogue. Dr Feelgood played a great set of old favourites. I think the band sound just as good as in their 1970s heyday.
