    Advice needed: Wedding invite for the 28th June 2019

    Not read all of this, only got alerted because you tagged me earlier @Sasperella but another way of looking at it is what are you going to be more jealous looking at? Highlights on iPlayer or photos on facebook? P.S. we both know where this is going. I'll meet you at the cider bus.

    Arctic Monkeys 2019

    Slate down another one impressed by Saturday. Decent crowd and surprised at how well the new tracks went down but could have done without the amount of drink and piss I left wearing. Turner seems to come eased up on his AM persona leaving a confident frontman enjoying who he is and what he does.

    Yup, mine took less than 2 hours over lunch time so seems like the turnaround is pretty quick.

    You're all convincing me that I need to get stressed about this. Might have to bite the bullet and do it now at work.

    2019 Headliners

    My question about them being in the same ball park as Smashing Pumpkins what not rhetorical (this is for the other replies above as well as to lighthouse). Personally I'm baffled by this but it might possibly be an age thing? I might be too young to appreciate how big they were and too old be swept up in a revival that has apparently happened recently. I could fully appreciate that The Cure may have been bigger than Arctic Monkeys but struggle now. 'Bigger' is so subjective. I've not looked up the stats but one could quite plausibly use amount of albums/tickets sold in last 10 years as metrics for who is bigger and I'd be stunned if AM don't come out on top. If we were talking about who would get a 'bigger' crowd in the Pyramid field my money would be on Arctics even though they've played more recently. FWIW I think The Cure would be a decent enough booking but I'm sure there'd be something more to my tastes elsewhere at the same time. EDIT: others beat me to it sorry

    Most White Lies took a while to grow on me but I'm glad it did. I think it was seeing them at Glastonbury that finally won me over and have seen them once or twice since. Very much worth checking out live.

    2019 Headliners

    Are they in the same ball park at Smashing Pumpkins who agreed to play the Other? Also band's ego aside could this be another move towards the 'two main stages' and 6 headliners vibe that they've been trying to get at since the new bigger Other stage(s)?

    Glad it's getting smoother. I need to change mine as the postcode is wrong but might not get a chance until the weekend.

    Boomtown 2018

    Ah man I love that place. Especially when the edit removes any sign of the rain

    Boomtown 2019: Chapter 11

    I'm guessing at a Chase & Status live set in the Lions Den and a Jungle set on Bang Hai/Sector 6

    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    This autumn is the best for gigs/tours that I can remember. Not often I'm in a situation that I have to prioritise.

    Boomtown 2019: Chapter 11

    Yup, I can see myself getting a first tier ticket. Line up is just a bonus but the festival seems to be expanding in a musical direction that I like so have no doubt that there will be enough for me to miss because I'm chasing my tail through one of the mazes. And I will make the meet next year (the real one with more than 2 people probably just sat about 15m away from where we were intending to be (no offence @Sasperella))

    2018 New Music

    I had a quick listen to the first half of the Eminem album and was surprised about how much I was enjoying it. Bar Caterpillar it's the most I've enjoyed any of his stuff in a very long time.

    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    YES! They ripped up Boomtown last year, it was great. Fantastic festival band. Saw them again in Southampton earlier in the year and have loads of other gigs bought around those dates so not sure about this date though.
