    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Nothing from First Aid Kit, I don't think there was a presale for their tour earlier in the year either. Got two on O2 Priority this morning using a friend's account.

    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Saw them on the Pyramid last year, and at the Roundhouse earlier in the year (my daughter's first ever gig!). They were great both times. The Staves are brilliant as well. Great double bill. Will definitely be getting Brixton tickets.

    Craig David's Gargantuan Crowd

    I was being sick into a carrier bag inside a baking hot tent while he was on. Was a strange accompaniment to my voming. Not my proudest moment. Managed to stumble in to his gig in the Stonebridge later that afternoon though, actually quite enjoyed it!

    They're playing the Junction in Cambridge as well. Got some tickets yesterday.

    Foo Fighters

    Has anyone had the email for the venue pre-sale yet? Haven't had anything through.

    Liam Gallagher

    Got through straight away on the Nottingham Arena website, four tickets all booked by 10:01. Bet Viagogo et al will be full of them today.

    Workers Rights at Glasto under Question

    I'm more than happy to criticise GFL, would be the first to call them out if they were doing something wrong here. As I said, if the workers were promised work to get them to travel to the UK, and this then failed to materialise, then, of course, that it is completely and utterly wrong. But I haven't seen any evidence of that being the case. This kind of work can only ever be on a casual basis - how can you offer people contracts of guaranteed work when you don't know how long the work can take, and staff are only required for a few days? Every similar event must take the same approach.

    Workers Rights at Glasto under Question

    No one made these people come across Europe - everyone was told they were only guaranteed eight hours of work. I wouldn't travel to Romania on that premise. If people had been promised two weeks' work and only got a few days, that's a different story, but they weren't. Would have thought they way the festival has behaved is no different to how every other similar event works - it's casual work with no guarantee of length of service. I know it was like that when I worked at Knebworth after the Oasis gigs years ago.

    Workers Rights at Glasto under Question

    Banning ZHCs completely would be ridiculous. I work on one as an instructor at my local gym. It's not my main source of income, just something I do on the side. If they need me to cover a class, I can choose whether or not I do it. And it saves me all the hassle of having to invoice them whenever I've worked and sort out all my tax etc. Works perfectly for both parties. Obviously it would be different if I was working in Sports Direct as my main job and didn't know how much I was going to earn from week to week.

    Sexual Assauly at Silver Hayes

    I'm genuinely shocked there's so many dirty bastards out there acting like this. Absolutely disgraceful, what the hell is wrong with them? Guess I'm shielded from it being a bloke, would be absolutely furious if any of my friends acted like that.

    Sexual Assauly at Silver Hayes

    I was very careful in any tight crowds or when trying to walk past people. Not necessarily because I was worried of being accused of something, just felt that women wouldn't appreciate me brushing up against them. Although I guess it's fairly obvious if it's accidental contact or someone doing it on purpose.
  12. He certainly seemed a lot more livelier and exciting than what I saw of Radiohead on the Friday night, yet no one is moaning about a them headlining. They were three very different headliners, and that's a good thing. I wouldn't pay to go and see him, but really don't understand where the dislike of him comes from. He's worked hard to get where he is, writes his own songs and seems likes a decent chap.
  13. She's nowhere near in his league though. She's an arena act at the moment, and probably needed the festival more than it needed her. I would imagine he sold more records/ had more downloads and streams than any other artist on the planet over the last year. You can dislike him, but can't deny he deserves a headline spot. I absolutely hate Muse, but could see why they were headlining last year.
  14. Everyone was dancing and singing where I was stood. Looked like they were having the time of their lives. I would have been at Justice if mt brother hadn't want to see him, but I went along with an open mind and enjoyed it.
  15. The bloke has sold out Wembley Stadium three nights running. On what planet would he accept a slot below Biffy Clyro?
