  3. 2019 Headliners

    he'd be a marmite choice for Glastonbury headliner. he's not a marmite figure whatsoever IMO. most people seem completely indifferent to him due to his bland as fuck music and his lack of personality.
  4. Liam Gallagher

    Heathen Chemistry is better than Don't Believe The Truth and far, far better than Dig Out Your Soul.
  5. 2019 Headliners

    even if his new album is as successful as the last, I don't see him any higher (or lower) than Pyramid sub.
  6. The National

    i wouldn't really say it's a festival as such, it's in a 6k stadium in a residential Dublin suburb. I presume it'll just be several hand-picked support acts throughout each day. https://www.aikenpromotions.com/component/thelist/show/1268-the-national-donnybrook-stadium-dublin-live-in-donnybrook-stadium-mulberry-ln-Dublin-4-on-15-Jun-2018.html?Itemid=1268

    there are 2-day tickets for the Dublin gigs, and a full support line-up is to be announced in the coming weeks, so looks like it's some sort of National-curated mini-weekend, probably them playing completely different setlists each night.
  8. The National

    playing 2 nights at a small rugby stadium in Dublin next 15th and 16th June.
  9. Liam Gallagher

    we all get sing at all now
  10. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    er, 5k in a few days is pretty good going for a band that everyone pretty much forgot existed, with no new material out, and presumably most people from outside London haven't bothered buying tickets for as they'll no doubt be touring elsewhere if/when they do release something. i didn't think it would sell out for a few months TBH.
  11. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    that Friendly Fires gig at Brixton Academy is sold out now, in 4 days no less.
  12. Kendrick Lamar

    can't wait for James Blake's set to be utterly ruined by the Kendrick crowd.
  13. The National

    it's Matt's vocal style which makes it awful for me. yelping "salvation" or "waiting years for" or "turtleneck" on the 2nd chorus, and the way he sings each chorus sounds like he was hungover and just bashed it out in 1 take and then fucked off. it always sounds like he's straining to hit a certain height but can't get there.

    Mick Fleetwood himself says that his sister lives near the site....
  15. 2019 Headliners

    it literally says it's his sister in the article.
  16. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    great news, presume there'll be at least a few more dates announced later. new song sounds good in the video.
  17. LCD Soundsystem....

    demand from who? SeeTickets are the only ones I'm aware of that have this facility, they'd have to devote lots of time, resources and money to setting up the system for non-Glastonbury events so that people can register, upload photos, moderate the photos, change the printing of tickets. that's a massive administrative pain in the arse. so all that costs money which will be dumped on top of the ticket price. then there's various other ticket providers who don't have the facilities at all who need to develop and administer it at enormous cost too. Glastonbury is a once-off for 135,000 people and it takes See ages to do the tickets. if there's tours from Foo Fighters, Adele, Coldplay all playing stadiums and arenas all around the country, that's millions of tickets, which means hiring shitloads more staff. which means massive costs, which will be passed on to the customer. all for a relatively tiny amount of concerts where touting is a problem. Glasto-style ticketing is completely unworkable for normal gigs/tours.
  18. LCD Soundsystem....

    it was all over the place. i saw it reported on the BBC and Stereogum.
  19. 2019 Headliners

    no more than Mik Artistik. the 1975 are nowhere near headlining Glastonbury level. there will be plenty of bigger acts touring in summer 2019 who will be booked before them.
  20. 2019 Headliners

    no. absolutely zero chance they headline in 2019.
  21. The National

    Turtleneck is still dreadful.
  22. The National

    new album in full with 4 songs after (Green Gloves, Fake Empire, Apartment Story, Terrible Love). wonder if they'll keep that up for the upcoming gigs.
  23. LCD Soundsystem....

    given the subject matter and that it's basically a diss track, I don't see it ever getting played live TBH.
  24. LCD Soundsystem....

    there is some non-album single after leaking too called Pulse v.1 .
  25. The National

    i'm sure you've already got your questions lined up, but I'd be interested to know what their thinking is for playing several new, unheard songs at a festival like Glastonbury, instead of playing more well-known tracks that at least some of the crowd have heard. Aaron alluded to this in an interview recently. I always think bands should basically play a "greatest hits" set at festivals where possible, but I'd love to know what bands' opinions on that are.
