    2019 Headliners

    If he starts playing synths and changes his name to La Macca then he'd become super popular on this board again for starters.

    Pete Shelley RIP

    Ah crap. Only saw them play in August, were good and no signs of I'll health. Just goes to show you either don't know what's happening behind the scenes or these things can creep up from nowhere. Class band, helped define an era. RIP

    2019 Headliners

    We went to watch Toots and The Maytals instead but it was pretty heavy on that side at the Glade end as we were heading away. Toots didn't end up playing so we head back and it was rammed to bits and took us about 20-30 mins to walk round the back and find a spot to stand and catch the last song and a bit.

    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    If they've booked both then it's where to put them, they are both sub headliner material, we saw last time that Liam was too big for the Other and aid imagine Noel is the same. They still need to fill out new bands but there will be 20+ bands on the pyramid and I'm not sure Christine and the Queen's are big enough to draw a huge crowd without some more highly established bands surrounding them, matterless of how good they are. Most festivals have always booked with a mixture and the bookers may feel like Liam and Noel could help draw enough people over to the pyramid for Stormzy and The Cure who aren't either fully established yet or may be past their top drawing peak. They Amy just see that as a safe bet to have people over to the Pyramid ready for the headliners. I might not go see either agallagher bother if they are on, both or just one of them but I don't really have a problem with them being there and mixed in with some acts that aren't quite as established as mainstream draws as them. I think I spent more time at the JP, Acoustic or Truth stage last time and probably will again but I'm not sure throwing too many upcoming star acts on the pyramid alone helps them, they are already gambling on Stormzy which could go either way and I doubt they want to add a huge amount of other risky ventures into that stage at the same time.

    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    I think there is room for all tbh. I wouldn't have thought Bon Jovi is big enough to headline the festival in the UK in 2018, though could be wrong but they wouldn't be a bad act to play, just depends on who else is doing it. Can't really compare them to Noel and Liam though, they were a far bigger act this side of the Atlantic and are still ones of the biggest British acts of all time. They are unique as I can't think of many brothers that toured separately at the same time who are similarly equal in stature. I can think of plenty brothers but not where both got to that level. I don't think this would have happened if there wasn't the fallow year. Surely they wouldn't book Liam to play twice in a row or they would have booked Noel last year. I still go with if both play it's cause they want to push them back together as headliner next year. There's plenty huge bands but I think Oasis to this day would be one of the top five or so headliners they could get. You could easy do LDR > Noel > Cure/Maccabees one night and Smashing Pumpkins > Liam > Stormzy another though and with whatever else is going on it'd pass easy. I said Liam followed by Stormzy is a smart move and it possibly would be to have LDR before Noel, both acts would benefit from it imo.

    They probably book the bands that are available and for each that's the suitable spot. It is a big samey but fans will lapnit up regardless and see both. I wouldn't be fussed about seeing either but depends on what's on at the same time. I'd be more inclined to see Noel just cause I haven't seen him solo before. I'm still going of the assumption that they want Oasis to headline the 50th and booking both might help aid that.

    Why, they are are as big as any of those bands and we all saw last time that people on here underrated how big Liam still was when he had one of the biggest crowds going at the Other, that stage was too small so subbing on the Pyramid made sense (he had a bigger crowd than The National for sure). Noel has as much as an attraction. I get it looks a bit awkward with two brothers from the same band subbing separate days but ultimately both acts are bigger that the likes of the National and the XX so how is it embarrassing?

    Tbf at their peak they would have been headliner material. Blonde were massive back in the day, obviously things change over time. If you suggested Skunk Anansie, Travis, Ash, Shakespeare Sister etc could headline now then you'd be laughed at but they all did and plenty of others. Not a bad article in terms of what it's saying as all those bands were big enough to headline at one point or another.

    2019 Possibilities (Non Pyramid Headliner)

    I heard similar stories about Hall and Oates. Apparently John Oastes has Venom symbiote like powers and can attach himself to Daryl Hall making one super being. That's why there music is so godly, as a combined person Halloates has an IQ of over 300, can master any instrument and can write lyrics like no other person could. Obviously, not being a dick they don't bond when playing, give us mere mortals hope that we too could, if we really tried hard and got our brains to the optimum level, create songs to around 50% of the Level of Hall and Oates. Good dude he is. I also heard that Foo Fighters take performance enhancing drugs and have been able to get up to 38% of Hall and Oates so with science improving we may see music of the likes once again one day.
