    The thing I'd worry about is the backlash against the R+L lineup being misreported as fury at Kendrick Lamar and two dozens other rappers/rap groups being booked, when in reality he's the only headline booking that's being praised.

    Seems to have already happened - on the basis of a couple of tweets.

    I know his info is generally pretty good, from contact I've had with the guy who runs it on several occasions.

    And having just realised I know something he doesn't I've shared it with him for him to use. :)

    I don't think he's privvy to all of the news, but the band do seem to vaguely look after him.  He certainly managed to show up at Glastonbury.

  3. Who knows what'll pan out this time around, but the last time the Stones had standing at their UK stadium gigs was in the nineties.

    Edit: There'll be a golden circle, but most tickets for that will be on sale as part of deluxe hospitality packages with prices nearer 4 figures.

    However, its these eyewatering options that go unsold and sometimes appear at face value in the days before the show.

    Go back to moaning about IOW my dude. 

    Also, that's the second band we've split up in two days. Anyone fancy making it a hat-trick? 

    Hearing rumours that The Hunna have spontaneously combusted out of sheer embarrassment.

    that's the thing. At their age it's a fair bet there'll be medical reasons for at least one of them.


    I think that's getting them in before those medical reasons get in the way.

    Indeed.  All it'll take is Charlie's cancer to come back and they'll shut up shop for keeps - but at the minute they're making hay while the sun shines.

  6. I agree that the Stones don't plan ahead much these days, but they're also nowadays more or less permanently on the road in a far more sporadic version of the Neverending Tour - so it's a fair bet that - barring any medical reasons  - they'll be active at that point.
