  1. British Summer Time 2018

    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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. BST Hyde Park 2017

    You also said IoW and were wrong there too. Double whammy of wrong.
  6. BST Hyde Park 2017

    Phil Collins also has an announcement imminent, for tomorrow morning. Are the currently announced dates just a warm up tour for this show? Could be.
  7. Neil Young & Crazy Horse?

    Neil's back catalogue is so diverse, there is always guaranteed to be a gigantic whinge from one sub-section of the audience... Been lucky enough to see him solo, a few times with the Electric Band, and with Crazy Horse. If the Horse rides again this summer, I'm in. Wheel out my "cheap places to stay in major EU cities" notebook, and I'm sorted.
  8. Glasgow Summer Sessions

    Any chance of Neil Young there? He heads back to the UK on the 18th & 19th August, and seems strange that he'd double back just for 2 arena dates...
