    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Thought I'd start a thread especially for this kind of stuff as there isn't really a dedicated place for it all and so they seem to get posted in various random threads across the forum, and I often end up missing stuff entirely. I know there's the 'Got any gigs coming up?' thread over in Discussions but it often gets buried or forgotten about. SO... New tour been announced? Post it here. Want to talk about upcoming gigs but there isn't a pre-existing thread for said band? Get that in here too. Post tour posters if you can so people can see full details of the tours. Also, help out efestivals by using the ticket links provided by this site (Shop > Tickets at the top of the page). Maybe this'll work - maybe it'll just fall off. Let's see. Currently very excited about the upcoming Cloud Nothings/The Hotelier tour in December that was announced the week just gone. Very rare that two bands I love so much do this kind of tour together so this is gonna be ace. Already secured my ticket for the Manchester date. On a similar joint venture, At the Drive In are touring in March with Death From Above as support. Bit on the pricey side so waiting it out a little before I commit, but if ATDI are in a good mood then this should be a great tour.

    2018 New Music

    Missed this when it was released a couple of weeks ago but it's a bit of a banger - much better than the ballad-ey direction she focused too much on with the last two albums. More of this from Jessie please.

    Park Stage 2019

    Played the Park in 2014 so I think they’d be ‘upgraded’ to the JP if they were to play next year.

    Pumpkins??

    I doubt they’ll ever play again tbh - judging by the prices and size of the venues for the current tour they/Billy sees them as a headliner sized act so I doubt they’d accept anything less right now, and I’m sure the festival isn’t too fussed about having them back what with them having played in 2013.

    2019 Headliners

    Which is exactly why it shouldn't happen - I'm sure AM don't want to become another Glastonbury house band like Muse and Coldplay have become. They'd benefit a lot from giving it another few years.

    Acts Touring Around Glastonbury 2019

    'I'm off my nut so you better get this party started' wasn't deemed acceptable for radio.

    Acts Touring Around Glastonbury 2019

    Maybe cheesy was the wrong word, but I don't think she has much more of an edge than other pop stars (although she was initially portrayed as somewhat of a 'bad girl' I think that image was soon scrapped). Ended up seeing Pink at one of her own shows like ten years ago and I've gotta say it was a lot of fun - she'd be great at Glastonbury. I don't see it happening mind as she'll probably just do her own shows/BST.

    Acts Touring Around Glastonbury 2019

    Yeah this. If Pink did play Glastonbury I cant see her getting anything other than the same slot as Katy Perry, Paloma Faith, Shakira etc had before her. They're just perfect for that time of the day imo - big cheesy pop sing alongs in the (hopefully) scorching sun.

    2019 Headliners

    The 1975 are the most likely out of all of those with Neil having info that they've had an offer. The other two aren't options at all imo, although could appear in a secret set capacity I suppose.

    The Cure

    I'm 100% confident it isn't going to be Mumfords.

    2019 Headliners

    Not that it matters at all but The Cure playing the Saturday/Sunday seems weird to me, but maybe only because those slots have been taken up by huge mega stars the past few years. Would be weird to see the Pyramid field half empty on either of those days at headliner time.

    Guess all it takes is for the right offer to come along, tour dates to line up or bands to have a change of heart, so it's about as likely as any other year. It probably will be the same old acts again but what with that small selection of acts growing increasingly smaller with band break ups etc I'm sure they'll be upping the offers to get other acts on board.

    2019 Headliners

    I wish I was a bigger Killers fan as although I enjoyed the set, belting out Mr Brightside in that crowd was just that for me - belting out Mr Brightside, for the thousandth time. Would love a similar secret set next year from somebody I'm more bothered about, but after having such a big act in 2017 I fear it'd already reach Park-level overcrowding issues with everybody expecting a headliner sized surprise act and getting there mega early. As for Arctic Monkeys being out, good! The headliner options just got a whole lot less boring.

    I wouldn't say they've missed the boat, but it definitely seems like this should've been the year to make their major festival headliner debut and it's weird that that isn't the case.

    Who's watching what on tv

    This series of Better Call Saul was incredible. So great/exciting to see everything slowly line up with Breaking Bad's timeline, and I do wonder if the next season will be the last, leaving both this and Breaking Bad with 5 seasons (although BB's was split in to two so maybe this will get an extended season as well).

    The National

    Yeah they fucked it. I enjoyed the performance immensely but playing that many unreleased songs was a dumb move. Maybe they knew they were doomed in that slot regardless and so just decided 'fuck it'? Who knows.

    What's the reception been like to this? Like, do people still care about them at all? It almost seemed so much like TTS that it just kind of got forgotten about instantly, or has it created a lot of hype for the new album?

    2019 Possibilities (Non-Headliner)

    That would be pretty awesome, although maybe the acts you named (well, Four Tet at least) would draw too big crowds - the hill of the Park doesn't exactly lend themselves to thousands and thousands of people trying to watch like the SE corner does. Would be interested to see how they integrate more late night stuff in to the Park though as I've never had a truly great night in the SE corner if I'm honest.

    2019 Possibilities (Non-Headliner)

    Christ I've not been keeping up with stuff this year as this is the first I've heard of a curfew extension. Does this mean it's just finishing at the same time as the rest of the headliners or is it going beyond that?

    The Cure

    As much as I believe this is happening I'm still struggling to get my head around The Cure headlining Glastonbury 2019. Like, is this new album of theirs gonna get some heavy promotion that puts them back in the public eye, or is it just a pretty random booking from the festival that will get incredibly muted reception when it's announced and then still won't make much sense come the festival?

    Nine Inch Nails

    Other headliner is the only option for them. I won’t buy that they’re a possibility until I see a Glasto shaped hole in their tour.

    2019 Headliners

    Coldplay aren’t headlining in 2020.

    The Cure

    Missy Elliott was the year before, although the point still stands. And what a waste of money that turned out to be! Got to wonder how many acts they went through until they arrived at Missy Elliott.
  24. FloorFiller

    2019 Headliners

    They’ve gotten there more gradually rather than Mumfords who blew up suddenly, but yeah I’d say they’re on a similar level now, or at least will be with the release of the new album.
  25. FloorFiller

    2019 Headliners

    I’d argue that she won’t ever headline again.
