  1. I think it's a deal requirement to play BST these days? And really, Alternative Nation, there's more truth in The S*n than on that joke site.

    Thanks for sharing them, listened to a couple of tracks. She's got a great voice. If he does The Frog Chorus then maybe... 😂 He was OK in 2004, keen to see what they put up against him.

    I agree with Jason Isbell about these. "My only issue with the skinny rock kids is this: If you’re gonna sound like the first couple Zeppelin albums you need to be playing a tele" https://mobile.twitter.com/JasonIsbell/status/1054778388278378496?fbclid=IwAR3aFK1tTj3yzMAKqDfnCub8MS4vXf2TaRlhUiaEzyo-1eKlVaLtjJ1Lg3Y

    She's an 8 date tour at present, realistically with 28, 30 June and 7 July open, based on a show every other day. Taking it up to 11 doesn't leave much space. That Berlin show, for her, is a small one, Waldbuhne only holds 24000 or so. A Glastonbury performance as a one off UK show, then announce a 3-4 date (initially) stadium tour for 2021. Easy marketing and sales generator.

    Given they'd be taking a huge dip on a fee a shorter set would probably be a sweetener to the deal tbh. Less work for less pay. They trimmed 5 songs from the summer set, most shows ran 2h30 to 2h45. Much less than in years past, an acknowledgement to their getting older I think!

    He did to pretty much a greatest hits when he played that Oldchella, sorry, Desert Trip, festival in the US. https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/bob-dylan/2016/empire-polo-club-indio-ca-2bfd748e.html Saw him a few times between 2000-2003 when he was in good form, the worst of those far eclipsed the 1998 Glastonbury set. He was kind of boring at the Roundhouse in 2009, but everyone's allowed an off night. Would love to see him again, but at the same time, wouldn't specifically make a trip to do so. Dimitris doesn't attend as many shows as you might think, 6-7 of a European tour is usually about it, and the odd couple in the US or south America. He's a good guy. HIs post on the thread on the forum indicates he doesn't think the band would play a festival which had sold out before they were announced, I can see that, although their commitment to their fan club appears to be waning somewhat. Stopped producing the vinyl singles, didn't drop the price of fan club membership, still owe two years worth to the fans... so maybe now they might consider a festival that their fans couldn't get a presale for.

    That flurry of activity caused by that fake Pearl Jam tour list was good entertainment. Would love them to be there. The group I'm going with all met as a result of Pearl Jam tour. Seeing them on the Pyramid would be awesome, but I've more chance of winning the lottery tonight without buying a ticket!
  8. Probably a good shout of The Waterboys reappearing somewhere too as they're also there, they've been one of the house bands down the years. IIRC in 2007 they headlined two of the tents (Avalon & Acoustic?) before opening the Sunday on the Pyramid.
  9. Now that was a real missed opportunity...

    Didn't go in 2015, but wouldn't cross the road to see them after the 2007 performance. Highlight of their set was managing to finish an ice cream before the rain washed it all away. Mad, yeah, but I felt sorry for the ice cream van getting zero sales in the downpour).
  11. All these *Yourlocaltown* live websites which replaced a lot of daily local papers are sadly not much more than clickbait. That said, it'd be a massive coup for Glastonbury to get her, lets hope they succeed and there is something to this.

    The setlist may be the same, or a couple different, but no two performances of any song will be. It should be a great couple of nights. I wouldn't do multiple nights for many acts, there's too many out there even have the between song "chat" rehearsed or teleprompted!

    Doing both the London shows this time around, if I'm going to spend out on the travel and hotel then I may as well make a few days of it. Can it be May already?
  14. Yes, had twice in 2 days when there for Nick Cave/Clutch over the summer. So good.
