Manics

Recommended Posts

I know lots of peeps think they're playing because of their show in Bristol, but I had them marked as TBC (rather than just rumoured) and now i can't find why I had them as TBC.

Is anyone able to point me at anything that does confirm them as playing? Cos i have someone telling me that they're not (it's not impossible that's wrong, tho it's more likely right).

I don't have the pic but an email was sent out about their Bristol show which said they were heading to Glasto after.

Gutted if they're not playing but makes sense and thought they weren't gonna show up before they became a TBC. I'm not sure how they became a TBC but I thought they were initially added as a R/SR as they have gigs in such close proximity to the festival.

aahhhh, you're right - I remember seeing it now.

It's not impossible that was accurate, tho what i'm hearing suggests it's probably not.

thanks - tho as that's a songkick email, I'm guessing that songkick have guessed at Glasto.

Word I'm hearing is that they're not doing it.

Well at least that takes away the possibility of a Friday 11am clash anyway. Bring on Elbow to open Other.

Let's not get too hasty on these TBC, little more accuracy please! ;).

I will say though in fairness it does help me as I'd have felt the need to go and see them being at Glasto and this would make the effort to go Victorious defo worth it! Plus those Bristol gigs, it was said Glasto usually only have 3 out of 4 and the other 3 look likely.

Elbow will be in The Park, I don't see a chancd Elbow are opening Other and if they are I think I'll camp elsewhere to avoid it.

Why would the Park be more likely? Surely the only reason Elbow wouldn't open Other is that they're still too big/current for it, so I'm not sure why doing a smaller scale secret set would be more likely.

Could they headline the park stage on Friday? 

Other than that I can't see them in another slot up there.

Is that - "not playing" or "not opening the other stage"?

I'd like to see the Manics, but would be at Hacienda Classical most likely.

word i'm hearing - tho with a few small caveats that might still have them playing - is that they're not playing at all.

Tbf it did seem a slightly odd one anyway having released nothing (except that Wales song) since their last appearance.

Was hoping they would play but have tickets for them later in the year and it takes away the possibility of an opener clash so Im good either way.

At least we'll know where to camp to avoid you if that's the case.

nope, that's really not what i'm getting at, but I can't say exactly what I'm getting at.

But take it from me in good faith it looks very unlikely - tho not impossible - that they're playing this year.

My post was a bit facetious to be honest.
