  1. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    I thought you lot would've been marking this day with some form of ritualistic chin stroking. Or are you waiting until 13:42. https://twitter.com/GlastoFest/status/789084484490633217
  2. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    I've never seen them before and absolutely loved it. The atmosphere was incredible, you forget how many songs of their you know. Great stuff. I wouldn't pay to see them though. Well, maybe up to £20.
  3. Glastocam!

    One year ago today.
  4. Thank you, Yog. As good as I could've hoped for.
  5. Not sure "crack on" was the best phrase to use given the circumstances.
  6. It may be another story entirely but we've got 20 months to fill between now and the festival. Crack on.
  7. Football 17/18

    If anyone wants me, I'll be behind the sofa.
  8. Festival / Event entry Questionnaire

    Done. Difficult to quantify really. The only festival I go to that has any form of queuing worth worrying about is Glastonbury and then there's only really 2 viable choices unless you want to drive to the other side and that's a fairly lengthy diversion with the traffic restrictions. The smaller festivals I go to only have one entrance so there's no point.
  9. Acts you don't "get"

    The Streets. Alright like, but get over yourselves.
  10. Bearded Theory 2018

    Bloody hell. This is all your fault then?
  11. Bearded Theory 2018

    *checks calender* See you tomorrow then.
  12. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    You see, I didn't want to go there but I'm glad you did.
  13. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Saw Bruce Springsteen at Old Trafford football ground in 2009 (I think), it was way too quiet. Don't know if that was down to him (wasn't the same the next time I saw him in a stadium), the council, stadium or what but not good.
  14. What is something that festival go-ers are missing?

    About 30 years ago I was working as a driver. I had a similar gag lined up for years, when I finally go the chance to use it, the person I said it to didn't get it. Devastated. Anyway.... Picture the scene.... I've driven to one of the banks on my route (for it was a bank I worked for). While waiting for them go gather the stuff I had to take with me, one of the women said they had a problem with a set of drawers, the top one was jammed in and they couldn't get it out. Could I take a look. So... I'm trying to force it open and she says "Would you like a screwdriver?". Barely containing my excitement I retorted, "No thanks. I'm 20 minutes late as it is!" Silence. Still hurts.
  15. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Announcing as only UK date will probably help, Wembley was the same last year and as you say, he apparently filled the place up. So we could have had Billy Joel as Legend and Roger Waters headlining if it wasn't a fallow year?
  16. What is something that festival go-ers are missing?

    Donkeys. That's what we're missing. A donkey to carry your stuff in. A donkey to carry you back to your tent. A donkey to have a chat to if you're lonely. A donkey to say ee-aw and cheer you up. A donkey to keep you warm at night. In short. Donkeys.
  17. new here? introduce yourself

    What have your performances been?
  18. Lack of T Day nerves / excitement

    Last Thursday was still in September, not saying it definitely wouldn't have been then (no pattern and all that) but I reckon it would've been today. It was the 6th last year.
  19. Lack of T Day nerves / excitement

    This evening would've been coach package sales. Ooooohh... Do I go coach or keep my powder dry for Sunday? Coach time put me off this year, think I'll leave it for general sale. But two bites of the cherry! Maybe go for a coach from Bristol or Taunton. I'm in turmoil here and it's not even happening.
  20. Favourite venues

    The Royal Court in Liverpool will always hold a special place in my heart. In the 80s & 90s it was very run down but that added to the charm of the place. The circle and balcony were very steep but I didn't see many from up there, down on the floor was the place to be. All seets had been removed, it was nicely sloped so you could see from anywhere but that didn't really matter as most of the time was spent in a sweaty, lurching, bouncing pit if a crowd. I saw countless acts there, some on their way up, many seemingly staying at the same level and coming back every year. The floor was sticky, the bar was crap (£1 for a warm can), half the lights didn't work, no heating and only one phone so if you wanted popular tickets, you had to queue up at the box office. The ones that stand out for various reasons were U2, Bon Jovi, Iron Maiden, Whitesnake, The Cult, The Mission, Slade, Manics, Dio, The Pogues... I could fill a page. Now it's been reclaimed as a theatre. They put on the odd comedian but it's mainly shite Scouse comedy musicals. The down stairs has been put into tiers and they serve food fer Christ's sake. I couldn't find any old pics of what it was really like but this at least has a standing crowd. I think it's from when Coldplay did a charity gig there a few years back. Anyway... places that still exist. Manc Apollo - like The Royal Court but bigger. Manc O2 Ritz - nice balcony, good size, over priced beer. Favourite festival setting is The Woodland at Bearded Theory.
  21. Lack of T Day nerves / excitement

    I reckon it would've been next weekend, otherwise the coach package sale would have happened in September which has never happened before. Something about no pattern.
  22. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Lollapalooza Argentina lineup for March. Looks like a continuation of what was doing the rounds this year.
  23. Old Music Thread

    I always had you down as an Adrian Juste kinda guy.
  24. Old Music Thread

    I know I've seen this somewhere but can't remember if it was on this forum... Radio 1 Vintage on DAB radio this coming weekend with lots of old shows. Schedule. TV on the Radio back at 10pm Saturday.
