  1. Manics

    Going to see them in Newcastle on Saturday, with support from The Cribs. Looking foward to it.
  2. Arcade Fire

    Standing tickets haven't even sold out for Glasgow. Radiohead sold least tickets for TRNSMT festival as well. Shows why they always book the same stuff for T.
  3. Arcade Fire

    £110 for 2 tickets, £19.10 in 'Service Charge, 'Facility Charge' and delivery. What the fuck is that all about
  4. Arcade Fire

    Got 2 for Glasgow. Straight in, after refreshing the page when there was 10 seconds left on the countdown. First gig of 2018 booked, and they're one of the few people I haven't seen who I am particularly bothered about catching.
  5. Arcade Fire

    Considering going to Dublin and making a weekend of it.
  6. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Future Islands would be suitable for an Arcade Fire day.
  7. TRNSMT Festival 2017

    Might well go for Florence though, after the criticism he has had this year over female artists. She wouldn't be particularly expensive. Would probably sell well, if they got the rest of the day right.
  8. TRNSMT Festival 2017

    Would Arcade Fire be a big ticket seller? Not so sure. I would be tempted if they did play though. Obvious choices will be Arctic Monkeys and The Killers. Noel might headline if they had a 'lad' day with Courteeners and the like.
  9. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    That crowd is probably an indication of why T had repeat bookings as well mind. Kasabian headlining tonight, and day tickets have sold out. They play TITP on every album tour.
  10. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Highlights are on BBC2 Scotland tonight.
  11. New Order

    Superb last night. Vanishing Point, Dream Attack, Shellshock, Subculture, Your Silent Face and Disorder were highlights for me. What a great venue that is for a gig. Also met Karl Hyde at the bar. Told him how great Underworld's Glastonbury set was last year. Really nice bloke, was happy to have a chat and photos with anyone.
  12. Headliners 2019

    Foals seem an obvious 'go to' option for 2019, if they can't get 3 massive headliners they might want.
  13. Rate Your Festivals

    A lot of people seem to have 2016 low down. I think its the headliners that done it for me though, despite the weather. Underworld, New Order and LCD were fucking great.
  14. Arctic Monkeys 2019

    A Humbug filled set would go down like a bag of hammers in general mind. It's not a 'festival friendly' album at all, for the casual listener. They could definitely get away with only playing a few from the first two, then spreading the rest of the set out though.
  15. BBC Highlights Show

    Haven't been watching, but this year made me realise how bad the standard BBC coverage is. Was the 2nd time I've missed it since 2010, and my internet went down from Friday morning, until Sunday afternoon, so I was stuck with BBC2 & BBC4. Absolutely awful. I've just caught up with a few full sets tonight. I was all down for spending last weekend in front of the TV, watching as many live sets as possible.
