    Paul McCartney Tour

    Only seen him a few times on the TV in recent years, so will take your word for it.

    Paul McCartney Tour

    14 years! Jeez. I'm not sure if I'd want him to do Glastonbury again, just in case it wasn't as good. What an amazing set that was. A little while back I was backing up some files and found an old phone recording of me and all my mates singing along to Yesterday during his set. Goosebumps! That said, if he was there I couldn't miss it!

    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Just got x2 tickets for Phoebe Bridgers @ Thekla a couple of days after Green Man. Was just randomly googling to see if she was over here playing again and BOOM! she was.

    Oooh, was flirting with going to Bath but definitely will do now!
  5. Magic Numbers in the John Peel was bloody brilliant! Kings of Leon in 2004 before Oasis springs to mind. Loved that first album, hadn't seen them, but they were boring, played everything too slow and barely spoke. Can't think of many bands I've loved who have disappointed.

    2019 Headliners

    From the times I've heard the band are OK, but always sounds just a bit tinny. Listened back to the 2002 Finsbury Park gig a while ago and it sounded great. Just abit too much treble on the guitars at the minute from what I've heard on the telly, but then that's not 'being there' so welcome to correct me. His singing has improved again, but still not quite what it was, but then who'd expect it to be!

    Worst Headliner?

    I quite enjoyed that set, although even as a naive youth it raised a smirk when they announced a new song they were playing was called 'Safe'.

    Worst Headliner?

    I was a big Oasis fan and thought 2004 was great (hammered). But hearing it back it is truly awful, and I know some of our group buggered off elsewhere whilst I moshed drunkenly at the front. Stereophonics was just boring. They would be my choice. Two worthy nominations for this award! Watching on TV obviously doesn't compare, but Kanye came across very badly. Regardless of whether you like him or his music, I'd love to know how many Pyramid Headliners have had to completely stop songs and re-start them, more than once! Embarrassing.

    Why don't they let this many people in any more?

    Could well be true. I remember 2002 seeming absolutely bare in comparison though.

    Why don't they let this many people in any more?

    I don't remember 2000 as being that bad..... I think it's worse these days to be honest, definitely around the pyramid. Maybe people are just more concentrated to the main stages. Chemical Brothers I remember dancing from the back right to the front on Superstar DJ's very easily. That video of the Pet Shop Boys and group walking down to the stage is how I remember it, pretty open and with loads of space around and fires and groups chilling. Remember the camping was alot more of a free for all though. Tents in all sort of odd places.

    Bon Iver 2017

    Last night was one of the best gigs I've ever been to. Sound was spot on from the word go. New stuff sounds incredible! Enjoyed the mix of all 3 records - not a bad track amongst them. Might have had something in my eye during "29 #Strafford APTS". Real pain in the arse getting to and from the gig but soooo glad I did - life affirming stuff. Not a chatterer near us either, but we did go very near the front. Beautiful.

    Hoping the weather doesn't scupper my plans to get to this gig.
