    In the long-drops.

    Has anyone here ever met the band New Order ?

    I'm glad the OP has clarified that it's the band New Order they're interested in hearing our anecdotes about, not the geo-political and ideological future goals of the Third Reich during the 1940s.

    The Kinks

    I saw them in 1994 in Folkestone, and for every banger played, there was another that only the band and a few diehards seemed to know, resulting in a bit of a deflated gig. Their Sunny Afternoon musical did very well recently, and won awards (rightfully too, great show), so I'd say their stock has risen since then. If they stick to the hits they'd be great in the Legends spot, or even subbing. They've got such a great catalogue to delve into, it could be a real 'follow that!' set. 2020 would be appropriate, to play 50 years after they pulled out of headlining the first one.

    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    It's a world where The Kooks also play arenas. Personally I don't know what the fuck's going on.

    I loved The Smiths back in the day, and saw them 3 times. I've never felt compelled to see Moz solo though, and certainly won't be now. I did quite enjoy his autobiography though, simply because it was such an over-indulgence in complete megalomania and utter miserablism that it had (presumably unintentional) great comedic value.

    Pink Floyd?

    Lucky you - enjoy!

    2019 Headliners

    Betway are apparently offering 2/1 that Led Zeppelin will headline next year. Ridiculous - it'll never happen.

    Ed Sheeran's piss break?

    I take it you’re not a fan of GG Allin?

    Has anyone here ever met Jarvis Cocker of Pulp?

    Btw, helpful of the OP to clarify which Jarvis Cocker he means.

    Has anyone here ever met Jarvis Cocker of Pulp?

    I worked in Paris for a while a few years ago, and apparently the cafe a few doors down from my apartment was owned by Jarvis, but unfortunately I never saw him. So, no.

    Pink Floyd?

    I’m really looking forward to (hopefully) catching Nick Mason, when he announces, as promised, more dates. Would be great to see him in a smallish venue bashing out the likes of Astronomy Domine and Bike.

    Wonder how Moz’s ticket sales have been affected by his latest outbursts? It’s got to the stage where you’re almost making a political point if you go see him.

    Foo Fighters

    When I was there on Friday I was thinking how amazing it must have been for the crowd at the Olympics as the stadium’s obviously built for athletics rather than football. I remember the night when Mo Farah won the 10,000 gold - I missed it because I was watching the useless GB football team whimper out of the competition against the mighty South Korea at the Millennium Stadium. So wish I’d been in London.

    Foo Fighters

    To be fair, it was very entertaining, enjoyed them a lot more than at GF last year. Not my favourite band at all, but they do the stadium rock thing very well and DG holds the crowd like few others. Could have done without the Imagine/Jump mash-up (waste of a space on the setlist), and, as @Matt42 says above, £6.20 a pint - wtf! As stadiums go, this was ok for concerts but not the easiest to get to. Was anticipating a right scrum trying to get into the Underground station at the end, but walked straight in and onto the train.

    Foo Fighters

    Disappointingly the first rule of Foo Fighters crowd etiquette wasn’t adhered to: Don’t clap until you’re sure the fuckers have stopped playing.
