    So how much truth is there in this Madonna rumour?

    Sorry for diversion but just had to say that every time I open this thread I expect it to be about some one else. Would be an interesting gig for sure. Anyway apologies, carry on.

    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    They are nowhere near a sell out, and i suspect they will be available in all kind of places if you look around. I have been very lucky and am going tonight. My daughter works for a company that had a ballot yesterday for what they said were 2 free tickets for tonight. Turns out they had more than 2 tickets for free. She won a pair. And bugger me they are in the Gold Circle........!

    £71 plus charges etc a pop. He’s squeezing every drop out of the UK. I think it’s a miss, having suffered Ali Pally.

    What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    Me and Mrs Chuckles are stewarding at Beautiful Days as well. Be nice to connect. Seems like quite a few folks are making this their summer alternative. Mrs C is stewarding at Bearded Theory and we are both also stewarding Latitude.......... It’s a new experience for both of us so looking forward to it. No idea how it will pan out :-) am looking forward to The National in Victoria Park as well. Having also see Arcade Fire at Manchester I feel am on a lucky year! Morrissey at Ali Pally was a bit meh but and he is turning more and more into someone I struggle to like. But the tunes are so good...... meant to quote @funkychick2007

    Arcade Fire

    Its only second time I have seen AF - first one was at Glastonbury when they headlined. Last night was fabulous. In the twenty odd years I have been going to the Arena there are not many concerts, if any, that were better - fantastic set, amazing stage set up, a band that absolutely gives a shit, and a crowd that was up for it big time. Where I was sat in the first tier, to the side, which turned out to be prime seats, every one was stood up and bopping from minute one. Absolutely brIlliant. If I could I would defo see them again in next few days.

    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Fascinating read for concert set up nerds like me. Particularly like this clause - very appropriate for a band of 70 year olds....... “During the concert, performers will be advised to avoid any action which may over excite the audience or endanger public safety. The performers will be advised accordingly.” :-)

    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Not official but from a pretty good source, about the Rolling Stones. They will tour U.K. next year, not sure if will be all stadiums or with arenas mixed in as well. Was on a plane trip last week sat next to a guy who turned out to be a sound technician for the stones PA provider. He has worked for the stones on all their tours for last umpteen years. They had just played their final stadium gig on this years tour in paris a couple of weeks ago and when they were packing up there was the usual gossip in the crew about where they were going to be working next, they all thought they were going back to the states and should therefore prepare work permits etc. Anyway the crew manager said they should prepare for gigs in the U.K. There you go.....

    The National

    First time seeing The National - they were great. The new songs were a bit of a downer in that no one knew them, certainly near me anyway. I seemed to be lucky in that I was in the middle of enthusiastic fans, about 20 metres or so in front of the left hand screen as you look at the stage, who sang along with everything they knew. Listening back though they were good and I look forward to the new album. Had a thought though - I got the impression that Matt B was either pissed, nervous or both, as he came across as a bit of a knob to me having never seen them before. He has a great voice and fantastic presence but apart from the dedication prior to England he didn't come across that sincere. And the whole Ohio governor stuff gave me the impression that he though The Uk was part of the US health system - the world is all part of the US. Didn't expect that. Anyhoo I have tickets for Manchester and I can't wait to see them again. Won't shake me off that easily...... edit - the Ohio governor stuff is not on the iPlayer version on Beeb
