Nonsense. I'll get you one. 

T-minus and counting:

I'll count the days, you count the miles!

I'll get you one after then. I'm used to 6,000 calories a day now. Only about 2,400 miles left...on this leg!

I know what you mean, I had an argument with my mates the other week, which had the better sound, Wembley Stadium, the Pyramid Stage or the Cheese and Grain in Frome

 

Needless to say, the Cheese and Grain didn't win

Crowds a bit flat. Band are plodders. enjoyed them more other times

Presume having a large percentage as journos etc doesn't help. Not having a go as it's entirely necessary but imagine it's diluted the crowd somewhat.

I think the crowd look in awe about what they are watching, they werent expecting that a few days ago! They must think they are dreaming at the moment! It's going to sound awesome on the Pyramid Stage in a few months time

One thing I don't really like and the foos do it is when a band is singing and doesn't finish a line before shouting things like "COME ON" and such like.. It's OK sometimes but old davey boy loves it...

I don't think there was a large proportion of journos, but they weren't all 'hardcore fans of the band', either.... plus, with plenty of glasto affiliated people (staff, etc) they've probably seen every band going, anyway. 

Last night was fun, but I thought that was the worst I'd seen the foos. They were plodding at times, the band were deferring to Dave too much in how they were playing, and Dave vocals got a bit iffy too many times ... but I guess that's maybe how they are when they've not played for a while. Dave mentioned they'd had an amount of rehearsal, tho perhaps it wasn't much more than a quick run thru a few songs.

I happened to speak to someone who knew the man who'd put the whole thing together, and they'd been first told about 'a big show' 6 weeks ago (they were only told who a week ago), so presumably it was 6 weeks ago the whole thing was started to be put together.

It was there first gig for around 15 months, so i guess they would have been a bit rusty and overly chatty. If it wasnt uber fans, the atmosphere may have been a bit tame as well.

 

I saw them play under waterloo in a tiny gig at 'vans warped' around 3 years ago and they were wonderful, i am a big fan

apparently, there were 700 in total.

And that was split as 200 glastonbury 'tickets', 400 foos 'tickets', and I guess the other 100 was 'guests' (the queue I was in). 

Many of those with glastonbury 'tickets' and on the list had committed to attend something that night one or more weeks ago, so it was never going to be band-fans-only.

I'm not a big fan, but that doesn't stop me from seeing they're (normally) a step above the average rock band.

I've seen them 10-ish times before, and I thought last night was the worse. Not dreadful or anything, but mostly short of having the 'special' I've seen them have previously.
