  1. British Summer Time 2018

    They have pretty much what they'd have playing any other show - lights, smoke, lasers, massive screens (so they tend to enhance any visuals they do use). I would have imagined Kendricks show would be minimal anyway, he's not Pink Floyd.
  2. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    I really am in disbelief that the Foo's appear to be out of the running for the Sunday. It just seemed too obvious to be a coincidence.

    "I've been told the same as you've already read in this thread, but I'm not sure it's right as my source may have just read it on this thread and isn't always right anyway but sometimes they are right."
  4. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    I think it would have made sense to announce them in order to actually sell some tickets!
  5. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Are Foo Fighters out of the running for this? Or are we just assuming that it's so terrible it's unlikely to be improved?
  6. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Darn darn darn. Foo Fighters looking even more likely for Friday now. And I have Roger Waters that night. In Glasgow. It's like the ultimate dilemma. (I'd go see Roger on Saturday but I have great seats....)
  7. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    I need Foos to be on the Saturday or Sunday..... Please adjust your wishlist accordingly to stop depressing me. Thanks.

    Foo Fighters is 100% confirmed according to my mate who works for DF. They were the main reason for the move of dates.* *Not really but it's the kind of situation where I can get away with making stuff up and still be pretty certain I'm right.

    Well, Guns n Roses are off the possibility list looking at their tour dates. Shame. I guess they must be a DL exclusive anyway. ELO are hyping a tour announcement and given they have done a few dates in various locations over the past 2 years I guess it could be them after all. Ending this revival where it all started. Shame Petty is gone, I was sure someone would be treated to Handle With Care on the tour with some original Wilburys.

    All this conversation over a joke. Christ. Move on lads, noone gives a crap about Franz Ferdinand's past or future headlining ability.
  11. British Summer Time 2018

    I know nothing, but would Guns 'n' Roses be a possibility? Were they not rumoured last year? And they seem to be continuing this reunion tour... For the "underwhelming" category - surely Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, Queen + Adam Lambert and Noel Gallagher would fall into that, and could announce after their own tours are underway? Other thoughts - Pearl Jam (it's been a long time since they did anything in London) Eagles (surely they'll do anything for money in their current bastardised setup?) Fleetwood Mac (aren't they definitely touring?) Rolling Stones (they're due to do something in the UK next year) Neil Young & Promise of the Real I can't see who they could have as an "exclusive" this year (similar to Carole King, Stevie Wonder, Tom Petty in previous years). I think Bob Seger and/or Dead & Company would be good scoops personally...

    I've been to a few events in Hyde Park over the years, and unfortunately the new pricing structure that BST has brought in has essentially ruined it for me. Having said that, I attended Phil Collins this year on the 29th June (which also happened to be the day he announced his arena tour, the cheeky c... So be glad you have an actual choice here...) I was in the cheap section, about half way back. Sound was fine, way better than my last attendance in 2014, and darkness fell quickly - what I remember most vividly was the lights during the later songs. Personally I would agree with the others that you should always aim for an arena show since they are available (I'm going to Glasgow) but I wouldn't rule BST out if that's your preferred option. I'm considering going myself depending on who is playing the Saturday.
  13. British Summer Time 2018

    I want to know who's headlining Saturday 7th July so I know whether to make the effort for Roger Waters or not. So tell me too. Please. I'm as in-the-know as eFests on these kinds of things.
  14. BluesFest London 2017

    Great first announcement for BluesFest, never thought I'd get to see either Steely Dan or the Doobie Brothers in the UK (I know they aren't to everyone's tastes...) Has anyone heard anything for the Friday night? I had heard a reliable rumour that Hall & Oates were lined up on the Saturday... Reliable to me, wouldn't hold your breath or anything.
  15. BST Hyde Park 2017

    I hear Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are lined up for one of the dates. Source here: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/features/tom-petty-40th-anniversary-tour-might-be-last-big-one-w454754 Although their US dates don't really line up with the Hyde Park dates. I wonder if they are BBC Radio 2 headliners?
