  1. I remember when Dylan played Earls Court in 1978 we queued at the then Southampton Gaumont overnight for ours, there were venues all over the Country selling them. He was rubbish btw. Most tickets for big gigs were postal applications back then which was a bit of a lottery but kind of exciting. Used to buy our Glastonbury tickets from Virgin Records in Southampton, never sold out

    What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    Roger Waters in Lisbon (only 60 euros & not sh*t like Hyde Park) All Points East & IOW + a few more gigs than usual. Would happily swap it all for a long weekend on the farm though. Even the fake poster last week got me excited.............................

    Isle of Wight 2018 Festival

    Think the early birds went quick quickly because there were less on sale than usual (never known them sell out before) & they were cheaper than usual, probably because of the mess they made of the line up last year. As Phil Collins is one of Solos artists I would expect him, DM & one other as headliners.

    Tom Petty

    Wow, this one really hurts. Was very fortunate to have seen him & the Heartbreakers on four tours down through the years & their music has been an integral part of my life. He will be sorely missed. We all need to take every opportunity to see these older musicians whilst we can (though 66 is no age) & I wonder who will take their places in 20 years time. Thanks for the memories Tom RIP

    They used to, pretty sure i remember seeing Roger Chapman (Family) on Thursday night in 82, very drunk & using a cardboard shoe box as a tambourine. Voice was spot on though.

    Kate Tempest - Extraordinary

    Truly a genius, seen her before & she was utterly brilliant but never seen the intensity of Fridays gig. The way it transferred to a bigger stage without losing any of the power was a joy. Not many dry eyes around us. The world needs more Kate Tempest.

    The XX

    Have to agree, thought they were stunning. New headliners are desperately needed & its the obvious next step, longer set, darkness, sure it will happen.Kate Tempest, XX, Radiohead, doesnt get any better.
