    Balado is accessible for Edinburgh, Fife, Perth, Dundee, Stirling, and Glasgow commuters, whereas Ayr is a long journey for those of us in the East Coast who don't do camping, and like to go home to clean beds and toilets. If T were moving to Ayr it would downsize considerably.

    The Subways were one of the two support acts. The Answer were the other and were second-rate AC/DC clones. Instantly forgettable. Thin Lizzy (minus Phil Lynnot) were supposed to support but I think one of the band was injured and they were replaced by The Subways.

    AC/DC are one of the best live bands to see in a Stadium show, and tickets will be like gold dust the next time they tour. The Download thing may have got a bit fucked up because it was treated as another date on their tour, but I wasn't there so I don't care. Saw them at Hampden and they were fantastic. A number of people I went with wouldn't be the sort of people you'd expect at an AC/DC gig.

    With no rock at T this year, I was hoping that a big rock band would headline but it looks like more of the same from the previously booked for T act list. KOL had two good albums at the start and went downhill to the point that their last was utterly abysmal.

    When are they planning on adding any other shows to this "event"? Its all gone quiet in terms of announcements, and some good rock acts would make up for the pop oriented T in the Park lineup.

    If the coming announcement for T is as dire as the headline and support acts already announced, perhaps two weeks? I'm hoping this is going to be a bit like Wireless and Hard Rock Calling was in London, depending on the capacity of the arena. Since T seems to have ditched rock for pop this year (and last), hopefully they will book rock acts for here like QOTSA with a strong undercard.

    Looks like DF Concerts have been saving the bigger names for these concerts instead of T in the Park.
