  1. The Scottish tour of Saving Grace Featuring Robert Plant And Suzi Dian in July has been cancelled. Not surprising...
  2. Queen + Adam Lambert ‘The Rhapsody’ UK/Europe Tour rescheduled to 2021. https://www.udiscovermusic.com/news/queen-european-rhapsody-tour-2021/ ...including massive ten O2 Arena shows.
  3. I think so. August 7-31.

    The Cure

    I wasn’t at Glasto but saw them at Hyde Park 2018 (British Summer Time) and Bellahouston Park 2019 (Glasgow Summer Sessions) — both stellar performances. Their Glasto show was fabulous for sure, but I believe they were by no means lesser on the other two occasions — it’s just that Glasto magic/wow factor may have done some trick on those who were there (ok one can argue that makes a difference). To further look into things objectively, they played 24 songs for 2 hours at Glasto as opposed to 29 songs in London and 27 songs in Glasgow, and both shows lasted 2 hrs 15 mins, which is undeniably an advantage over Glasto. My 2 cents.

    The National

    Old news but FYI just in case...following the announcement of the cancellation of the Tokyo shows, they postponed the NZ/OZ tour from March/April to December. https://americanmary.com
  8. Disappointed but more like feeling relieved. And it was predictable. Now I can cancel the accommodation. And, yeah, I’m curious as to who would be on the lineup for the final day, too. Does anyone have insider information?
  9. Eric Clapton European Tour — rescheduled to next year: http://www.whereseric.com/eric-clapton-news/303-europe-2020-rescheduled-spring-2021
  10. To begin with, is FN6 really coming back? I know there is a related thread on the other UK festivals forum, but...
  11. I'd never listened to their music, but had heard of Black Country, New Road before I caught their gig in Edinburgh the other day. They are currently on tour in the UK, and most of their shows are sold out (including Edinburgh). Do they live up to the hype? Yes, but not without some reservations. For this non-initiated listener they reminded me of some bands from the 'No New York' compilation album, especially their music’s distinctive freakiness. But their performance is more controlled and organized, and their technical prowess undeniable. On the other hand, I'm not sure if they'll end up as the next Arcade Fire, as touted in an Internet review I read recently. IMHO, at the moment, their material is not quite catchy enough to gain mass appeal. It remains to be seen whether they'll reach a wider audience beyond indy connoisseurs.
  12. Fountains D.C. The Murder Capitol Tash Sultana Ren Harvieu Kathryn Joseph KT Tunstall The Twilight Sad New Order Saving Grace (Robert Plant) Brian Fallon Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Sorry, couldn’t resist the temptation, just dismiss this. No mistaking for Phoebe Bridgers.) I’d put British Sea Power, Black Midi and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever unless they appeared at GM fairly recently (17, 17 and 18, respectively).
  13. Paul McCartney - Echo Arena, Liverpool, 2011 Bruce Springsteen - Etihad Stadium, 2012 Eric Clapton - Manchester Evening News Arena, 2013 New Order - Jodrell Bank, 2013 Nick Cave & The Bad Sees, Apollo, Manchester, 2013 U2 - O2 Arena, 2015 David Gray - Wexford, 2017 Arcade Fire - SSE Hydro, Glasgow, 2018 The Rolling Stones, Old Trafford Stadium, Manchester, 2018 Christeen & The Queens, All Points East 2019
  14. Thanks. Yeah, I was late (tried midday).
