    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.

    Neil’s info says Wu Tang are Saturday WH headliner.

    2019 Headliners

    Still got an inkling that it’s Gaga for the final headliner. Big marquee name. Female presence at the top of the lineup. Gap in her schedule. Bradley Cooper says he’s playing a secret set/is there every year anyway - guaranteed crowd going ape when he comes out for Shallow/other Star is Born songs. And I just have a feeling... Gambino to sub. Noel on Other. Where that leaves The Strokes amongst our ever increasing number of upper tier acts I don’t know. On before The Cure as a special guest? Or dare I say it, co-headliner, if you will. I don’t know. Just not straight up headlining the Saturday.

    2019 New Music

    New Sharon Van Etten is really excellent. Looking forward to The Twilight Sad, Deerhunter, James Blake and Maggie Rogers for the rest of the day. After a month or so of fuck all new releases it feels great to have so much potentially great new stuff to get my teeth in to.

    2019 Headliners

    If we’re going with The Strokes headlining then surely 2019 will be the emptiest the Pyramid field has been come headliner time across all three nights by quite a margin (by the end of each headliners set, at least). No big marquee name. Nothing much for the TV audience back home. Not a whole lot to get people talking outside of ‘is Stormzy really big enough for this?’.

    West Holts 2019

    Yeah they’ve pretty much played every realistic slot across the festival over the last decade of them being booked. If Chemical Brothers end up being booked to headline Other then I imagine a repeat of Hot Chip playing before them could work.

    Gah, Monáe vs The Cure. First absolute fucker of a clash.

    2019 New Music

    New Vampire Weekend is a 18 song double album, and we’re getting two new songs next week and then two more songs each month until the album release. HYPE!

    2019 New Music

    Album’s leaked n’all. My laptop’s momentarily fucked so I’ll have to wait until it’s released properly like all of you common and/or legit folk.

    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Was absolutely ecstatic when I saw this news to only then realise the Manchester date is the same night I’m seeing Suede. Shite. One of my favourite albums ever so gonna have to get to one of those other dates, even if them being acoustic isn’t the best. Think I may do a little cry.

    2019 Possibilities (Non Pyramid Headliner)

    With McCartney now out of the equation I wonder if Noel could be a Other headliner opposite the likes of Gaga/another non-guitar act headliner, if that’s what we end up with. Would at least remove the double Gallagher sub dilemma, and open up the possibility of Gambino possibly taking that sub spot.

    2019 Headliners

    Ruled out by Emily, and doesn’t seem to have anything announced for this year as of yet.
  14. FloorFiller

    2019 Headliners

    Fuck it, it’s The Strokes, ain’t it? That guy said Stormzy, The Strokes, The Cure. Grimshaw heard The Strokes. Emily said ‘a couple of blokes’. There are fuck all other realistic possibilities. Outside of an act reforming out of nowhere (although who?!) I’m all out of ideas.

    2019 Headliners

    Fucking hell. I was half expecting to come in this thread one day and for The Cure to be ruled out/replaced by somebody else’s as front runner, which I would’ve been okay with, but Macca being out is a real stinger and I’m not even THAT much of a fan. Refuse to believe The Strokes are the ‘replacement’ though, even if Emily’s ‘a couple of blokes’ comment does leave the possibilities pretty slim...

    Acts Touring Around Glastonbury 2019

    Looking at his recent setlists he essentially does Daytona in full, a couple of Kanye covers/his verses and then one or two older songs. It’ll be fine!

    Here’s hoping. Would be all over that.

    He’s been announced for Bonnaroo which is after Coachella and a couple of weeks before Glastonbury.

    2019 Possibilities (Non Pyramid Headliner)

    The same info that originally mentioned Liam and Noel (with Stormzy) also had Gambino as a possible Stormzy sub so not wishful thinking at all. If it turns out the Liam bit is wrong then I’d expect Gambino in his place. Although of course any info mentioning Noel has also mentioned Liam so would be odd for one of them to be there and not the other. Then both subbing may seem off to a lot on here, but to most casual festival goers I can imagine it’d be a dream come true and almost as good as Oasis being there themselves.

    2019 Possibilities (Non Pyramid Headliner)

    Yep. If it was about anybody else other than the second Gallagher brother of the weekend everybody would just assume it was for 2019, but because people don’t want to believe that they’re reading in to it differently. Maybe he will end up being there in 2020 instead but that’s not what the bits of info have told us at all. For all we know Liam could be the bit that’s wrong and it actually ends up being Gambino on before Stormzy.

    Other Stage

    Has there been info on Tame Impala doing it or is that just people’s best guess? With Noel seemingly taking the Macca sub spot it does leave The Strokes out in the open with before The Cure being the only place left, and you could well argue that that would be more like a co-headliner than a traditional sub. Or, or course, one of them isn’t happening, and The Strokes would seem the most unlikely candidate if we didn’t now have two bits of info placing them there.

    The Strokes

    Do people really think they’d headline Glastonbury with absolutely nothing new to promote though? I thought them being back on the road/at festivals this year was all about promoting new material? ‘Cause if not then I definitely can’t see them headlining. It’s not like they’ve broken up and reformed or have any other reason to be given the slot now after all these years and would just be playing the same set they’ve been doing for the past five+ years. They ain’t the Stones and don’t have enough stellar material to pull that off (imo of course - I’m sure others would argue otherwise). New material or not, subbing seems like the most ideal place to me. I would say Other headliner seems even more ideal but putting them up against Stormzy (where they’d undoubtedly go out of the three headliners) seems unwise, even if it does ring similar to Beyoncé vs QOTSA, just with Beyoncé being a much bigger deal

    2019 Possibilities (Non Pyramid Headliner)

    Bootlegs are a regular sized Pyramid opener. Noel is notably bigger. If he’s playing the Saturday then as Macca’s sub seems the most obvious slot - don’t really see where else he’d fit in as he obviously isn’t gonna go up against McCartney.
  24. FloorFiller

    The Strokes

    If The Strokes are at Glastonbury I just cannot see them headlining. They sit in that middle ground between too big to sub but not quite a big enough draw these days to headline, but a sub slot (marked as Special Guests if they must) from them, or even Other headliner, seems far more likely than them being booked to headline Glastonbury in 2019. Even with a new album I think everybody knows they’re essentially just running off the fumes of their first now 18 year old album and anything new is just to give them a reason for still existing. Stormzy, The Strokes, The Cure... as much as I don’t see it, it’d 100% be worth it just for the outcry.

    2019 Possibilities (Non Pyramid Headliner)

    Actually yeah scrap what I said - this would be the best outcome. He still seems a fair bit bigger than the other stuff they’ve had in that spot, but maybe it’s just something he’s willing to do. Whats stopping it being the two Gallaghers + Gambino though? We don’t have any real inkling of a third sub do we?
