  1. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Snow patrol and Artic Monkeys then? Tbf getting The Killers and Artic Monkeys as headliners is quality, but it would've looked a lot better as part of the original 3day fest and having a very strong undercard on all 3days. Is there now a chance a lot of the good undercard bookings get spread out over the extra days? 3 of the 5 headliners being Liam Gallagher, Steroephonics and maybe Snow Patrol seems a little bit weak. Don' t get me wrong I like all 3 and would happily see them live, but all should/could be strong subs. Would've liked an older band like Depeche Mode, The Cure, Pearl Jam or anything along those lines, similar to radiohead last year.
  2. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Nah not bought any tickets yet for any of the days. Hoping too next week.
  3. Lineup 2018

    Nah he's not the main headliner, you have to remember TRNSMT was originally only meant to be a 3day festival. Chance that one or both of Liam/ Stereophonics have been bumped up from subbing/ co headlining to both being day headliners on their own. I was told back in August that The killers were already booked up to headline TRNSMT, as well as another act apparently. I doubt the other big act was Steroephonics or Liam Gallagher (as much as I like both). Saturday is by far the easiest day to sell for a festival in the centre of Glasgow with no camping etc, and it's more likely a lot of folk will just pick and choose individual days out of the 5. So it also makes sense if bigger acts are on a Sunday as someone mentioned. Bands also have to fit this festival in around their other touring plans in europe, whereas for most bands if you're headlining Glastonbury you fit your plans around that as it's the biggest/best festival. For example the Artics could be in some other european country on the friday or saturday of TRNSMT, and only be able to do the first sunday - which is heavily rumoured now on the TRNSMT thread.

    I remember reading about what acts/bands roughly cost to book. There were figures released a few years back by the booking agency Degy entertainment and Muse were strangely low compared to other bands their size. Some of the figures did look a bit iffy though and maybe there was a lot of guesstimating going on
  5. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Yeah I remember tickets being available for all the days last year up till a week or two before the festival, as my mates bought some late on. So maybe there won't be a real threat of it selling out anytime soon. From various press reports it seems like capacity is somewhere between 35k and 50k but can't find anything exact.
  6. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Not sure tbh. Maybe with having just toured, and with headlining IOW and playing a few other stadium gigs on top of this, it might be easier to get tickets? However when they headlined BST it was sold out in no time compared to all the other days. Does anyone know the capacity of this festival per day?

    The killers are headlining TRNSMT in Scotland on the 6th or the 8th of July, so if I was a betting man I'd put money on them being here on the Friday or Sunday too. Could be wrong with that hunch though.
  8. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    I would love it if the Artics were there! The killers are certain, and the other act tba on that second weekend will also likely be big as they would've been booked up well in advance with the view to headline the original 3days. So very possible it's AM or a similar sized band/act. Think they won't be announced for a while because DF want to shift as many early weekend tickets first, before announcing the two headliners for the second weekend dates. If they announce The Killers on the 6th and a band like the Artics on the 8th just now, the vast majority might just buy those two individual day tickets and the "main" weekend tickets maybe wouldn't sell as well/quickly. Can't think of any other reason to hold off on the announcements?
  9. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    The Killers are headlining on the second weekend and were booked up months ago. Was told they were headlining this festival back in August, by someone who has given me plenty of solid info regarding some of The killers' touring plans before . Apparently they won' t be announced "for a while" though. So I think you're probably right in assuming maybe one or both of Liam/Stereophonics have been bumped up to headline on the earlier weekend at short notice. It does sound like its been a pretty late call to change the dates and make the "main weekend" the week before, so perhaps they have struggled to find more available bands big enough to headline those 3days. It makes sense if that's the case anyway. Not sure whether i will shell out for the full 5 days, or just pick and choose two or three individual day tickets to buy across the 5 days.
  10. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Would Snow Patrol definitely headline? I wouldn't mind seeing them but again like Stereophonics, im not sure how well they would go down as main headliners.
  11. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    I can't envisage Stereophonics going down too well as headliners? Last time I saw them was at T in the Park in 2013 (I think), where they subbed the killers and they nearly put the crowd to sleep. Had no energy and looked bored the minute the walked on stage. Maybe caught them on a bad day as I do like a lot of their songs, but I'd be amazed if that day sells well.
  12. The Killers Headling 2019

    It has really exceeded my expectations. With the news about the guitarist not touring etc it didn't send out a lot of good signals, but I'm happy with the results of the album. For me it doesn't have the real high points like a few huge songs from their earliest albums, but it's their only record where i don't want to skip a song. Feels like an album where my favourite tracks will change often. Hope they play most of the songs while touring later in the year but they'll easily have more songs from this on future setlists than battle born provided. 'Run for Cover' and 'Tyson vs Douglas' are typical high energy Killers songs which will be great live, and Rut is strong too although it took me a good few listens to appreciate it fully. The Calling gives me real Depeche Mode vibes and is probably my favourite right now along with Life to Come/Run for Cover. Think the slightly slower pace of some of the songs won't suit every fan of the band though, or any fans still wanting another hot fuss or more energy across a whole album. Really enjoying this, the new Horrors album and Cut Copy's, as well as the new album from the National. Some good music released recently.
  13. The National

    Not listened to the complete album start to finish yet, but 'The system only dreams in total darkness' is easily one of my favourite songs of the year so far. Like 'Day I die' too, but wasn't massively keen on Guilty party or Carin at the liquor store. Think there's a chance they'll grow on me the more I listen to them, and listening to them as part of the whole album should help
  14. Foo Fighters

    I actually liked The Line, although it sounds more like a cross between something kings of Leon or the killers would do rather than typical Foos. The Sky is a neighborhood is pretty good and Dirty Water i felt was a decent song too, but nothing else did it for me at all really. Still better than Sonic Highways.
  15. Headliners 2019

    It's way too unlikely and there's plenty you've listed that just won't happen full stop imo. Swedish House Mafia aren't headlining Glasto, and The Killers won't be subbing the Artic Monkeys. That's before we get onto the likes of REM and ABBA, but if it's more of a list that you would want to see (rather than think it'll be) it maybe makes more sense
