  1. She has been picked up to write the new Bond film now too, I take it her work on Killing Eve is what got her the job rather than Fleabag tho.
  2. They have added Brandy Thieves and Iamwarface now, both are very entertaining live even if their music is a bit iffy. Also for Seetickets enter the code CAMDENLOYAL as you get 25% off for tixs.
  3. Do you mean on the 2018 tours? I maybe wrong but I'm pretty sure Paramore just did one date at the London O2 and Maiden did two nights.
  4. Tbh I don't even know who the main ticket seller is for APE, it's one of those events I plan on going to only if I see a cheap tix closer to the time. I was talking in more general terms for other events as I've found using smaller ticket sellers more successful at getting tixs for the quick sell outs shows than the likes of Ticketmaster.
  5. Before you exclaim more blasphemy against our lord you're coming across as a bit of touch. R&L are normally more than happy to give a smaller band a bump up the card as long as the band are trendy enough to get away with it which in Idles case they are. Also those are some of the best independent venues in the country, I'd rather bands book their tours at those venues rather the smaller o2 academies.
  6. I've used Gigantic before and they are fine. Each ticket sellers (Seetickets, Ticketweb etc)are given an allocation of tixs to sell and once its gone but whilst Ticketmaster get the biggest allocation the smaller ticket sellers have less demand. Stargreen in particular for me has meant I been able to get tixs for instant sell out shows as everyone else is trying to get on Ticketmaster to buy them in case anyone wants to try that trick in the future.
  7. 3 nights at Electric Ballroom is about 4,500 people which is almost as big as Brixton Academy. You could tell the were alot of the crowd who don't normally follow acts who fill venues that small. There was one guy there telling me in the smoking area about how he doesn't like the security measures at the Ballroom and it should be more like the 02 arena with metal detectors.

    So if only the MEGA MEGA stars can influence creative the it's hardly surprising the roster isn't actually that creative then. Speaking of creative...Road Dogg has quit as head booker/writer of Smackdown, apparently he's pissed with Vince changes all the time. That's a shame as Smackdown has been consistently good under him.

    I thought he was great when they first split the Shield and he was going after Rollins all the time, then he went downhill. I pinpoint that feud with Lesnar where it started, simple enough story of does Ambrose + chainsaw = the might of Lesnar but Lesnar couldn't be arsed with it, apparently there's beef between the two over it. Ambrose was a hardcore wrestler when WWE doesn't want to do hardcore so instead they shoved goofy stuff like being afraid of germs and James Ellesworth onto him.

    That's not true, just before the brand split he was made champ as his house shows and merch were outselling Romans also there's The Shield which does business.

    I've already mentioned Ambrose, one of the biggest current wrestlers in the company quitting as they haven't got creative control.

    It's not the 90s anymore, the "creative" process is completely different now.
  13. I was just buying tixs for Frank Carter and whilst doing it I had a pop up ad for Van Gogh at the Tate come up, is it just me or do they look alike?

    I'm not buying that. It's well known the current crop of WWE wrestlers aren't allowed creative control anymore, it's only the likes of Cena, Trips, Bryan etc where there are big enough names that they are allowed to write their own lines, give ideas over to creative. It's the main reason Ambrose has left as he couldn't stand the "hokey shit" they create for him as well as others like Cody Rhodes. WWE wrestlers have a ghoulish tour schedule where they are constantly on the road, they aren't sitting on the arse playing games all day and wrestlers are under orders to post shit on social media after seeing how the likes of how Zack Ryder and The Young Buck got massive from it.
  15. It's listed on the promoters website there's a support band and it's the very much the norm to have a support band. The miserable sods that are Machine Head made a song and dance about how they wont have a support band last year beforehand.
  16. Of course there will be a support band, it's silly to suggest there wouldn't be one.

    Obviously it's The Spirit Squad... The Four Horsemen are probably the one most people would say but Evolution, Bullet Club, The Shield, The Corporation, The Fabulous Freebirds and The New Day are all worth a mention but personally I like Nation of Domination and Too Cool.

    It wont be Bryan, he refuses to do the Saudi Arabia shows (which make more money than 'mania?!?!?) which are coming up soon. I would like to see the feud continue tho as there's untapped points it can lead to still.
  19. It's definitely not Babymetal as they have announced their own Japan tour during those dates.

    Why do wrestling fans always bring it back to the attitude? I reckon Kofi holds it longer than the next PPV but he is a short term champ, unless WWE makes a few new stables it will be too weird having Kofi with two guys behind facing one on one challengers all the time.
  21. The booking is down to Kerrang isn't it or are they just the sponsor? Not that Download see Slam Dunk as a rival but yeah, Avalanche is horrendous for "punk" fans. If you look at fests like Reading or Boomtown they got some decent bookers just for their punks stage in Mike Davies and Last Gang In Town without the need to spend money on big names. There's a thought, get Mike Davies in since he's not a Reading anymore.
  22. It could be worse and they decide Plain White Ts were the extra headliner option.
  23. ^Fullee Love are decent and well worth a watch.
  24. Yeah the non-main stages finishing early is odd especially as you'd think it'll help with splitting the crowd but it's not uncommon for them to do that and tbh I was always going to see either Bullet or NoFX as the headliners so I'm not fussed. My day is going; Milk Teeth > Anti-Flag > Mad Caddies > The Interrupters > Cancer Bats > The Bronx > Less Than Jake/Gallows > Bad Religion/Menzingers > Bullet/NoFX I'll end up missing The Get Up Kids, Chas, Angel Du$t and Millencolin but I can live with that.
  25. From the 2000 trees thread; I've just gone onto Clashfinder and they are already up with the correct times. https://clashfinder.com/s/slamdunkfestivalsouth/?user=0f6hqb.a6& I'm pleased with the times, my main concerns of Cancer Bats & Interrupters and Anti-Flag & Milk Teeth only slightly overlap, the other clashes I'm not hugely fussed about. I've still got to decided between NoFX or Bullet tho, I may just flip a coin to choose.
