Any news on transport to Blur yet?
Massive effort with trying to get a hotel near Olympics?

hey, just another quick shout to see if anyone has an extra blur hyde park ticket they need to offload - i started the requests a couple of weeks ago for spare tickets and replied to the couple of guys who were looking to sell (arteet, nightcrawler), but unfortunately didn't hear back.

so here's another request for a spare - don't you all offer them to me at once...!

Bombay confirmed for Blur show. Big surprise... Could be worse, at least I like them. Would have preferred about 100 other bands though

Just been looking at what looks like the final line up for Hard Rock Calling - it's generally terrible. They're much more like a standard gig now rather than a festival.

No wonder they're doing cheap deals on Soundgarden tickets again.

If I didn't want to see The Boss and Fogerty so much I'd sell my two day ticket.

What cheap deal? I need to get the better half a ticket but as she's just along for the ride rather than being that into Soundgarden I begrudge shelling out the £63.25 that I did for my ticket.

Ticket master have a 241 offer on Soundgarden Friday. Won't work for you unless someone will buy your ticket I guess.

Damn it!

Anyway referring to your previous point, the line-up does fall below other festivals but I always thought HRC was somewhere in between a standard concert and a full festival. The price is pretty much in between as well so I guess it's still fair.

Wonder just how few tickets have been sold for Soundgarden at HRC that they're on a 2-4-1? I'm guessing it can't be more than half capacity so far? Their poor performances shown on webcast from Rock AM Ring etc can't have helped!

I thought they'd been quite well received. Not watched any of it thought. Was it no good? Iggy and the stooges is great on the undercard but I'm not very bothered about any of the other bands.

If people have been waiting 15 years to see Soundgarden I doubt that dodgy video clips on you tube are likely to have that much impact. It's more likely that there just simply weren't that many people interested in paying £60 to see them in Hyde Park in the first place.

I agree to a certain extent but they've had some really good line-ups in the past (Elvis Costello, Crowded House, Crosby, Stills, Nash, Sir Macca in 2010), this year just seems really weak. I'm not going to other with the day for Paul Simon, will just turn up in the evening.

The crowd at Rock IM Park/Rock AM Ring (can't recall which it was) looked bored and the band looked like they were just going through the motions and collecting the cheque. A real shame if that's the motivation, hopefully it was just an off-night.

To be fair the band looked like that 16 years ago.

I don't think that's the case with them, normally with a reunion it's a big pay day to do some shows but they decided they wanted to record 1st and then play after.

Anyone know if I can split my weekend ticket? They look like separate tickets on the PDF so guessing I can.

If so, anyone want a Paul Simon ticket?

Maybe they should have got Bruce to do a two-nighter.
