    Has the Thursday been spoken about anywhere else seriously? Thought it was just an idea on here

    Nothing to do with his voice though. It's that he plays new and sometimes weird arrangements of songs that alienate many fans let alone casuals.
  3. I think Diana Ross is perhaps big enough not to have to worry about those things as much.

    Would that fit in with the chatter about the rock/metal slot being 'big' for next year?

    I just said that in my book people should turn it down. Only my opinion and people can do as they wish. Lots of people who I respect/admire have accepted them.

    As everyone should
  7. Opposite to what he was saying in interviews this year though.

    In the Rock Werchter thread some seem to suggest they might be touring.
  10. I think he didn't entirely get festivals to be honest. He seemed to have been briefed almost too much if anything - opening with Coma Girl for example was a great gesture but one that 99% didn't get the reference too. Enjoyed it a lot but I have seen him a lot better since (including at IOW where he understood the festival vibe)

    I'm assuming he means the act, but they do have a band too.
  12. Oh yes, that's all I meant. The local sale is a big plus but obviously as the festival's demand has gone up across the country more have relied on the extra sale which means some have missed out recently - hence the extra tickets. I imagine the festival are aware and keen to make sure most get sorted.
  13. there are non-comp village tickets which they can buy though. Those are in the new year. They are transferable. I think it will likely be ok. I think most got sorted last year and they make it clear they have increased the amount available. in theory, considering there were 7000 extra tickets overall (allocated against the coaches), they should have been able to increase the local allocation without the overall total in the two main sales taking a hit.
  14. Wide suspicion? It’s fact. Until recently, all who those who wanted one still got sorted and it allowed local residents to take some close friends and family who were often just outside the boundary. Indeed I’m 100% sure I remember that the festival had actually (several years back when demand was not as high) even advertised it in the paper as allowing friends and family to attend. You even could change your registration to a local one right up until the date. However now that demand is higher a few it makes sense that the really close villages are guaranteed ones and there will be more available for the ‘outer circle’. Considering there’s 7000 extra coach tickets this year I guess they’ve been able to add a reasonable to the locals pot without substantially reducing those available to the wider public.
  15. More tickets than usual to meet demand and the very close villages essentially guaranteed them. Think that’s a good, cost effective way for them to please locals and means almost all should get sorted.
  16. All of that and he’s still made 80

    Coach Question

    Got through in the first minute or so several times but not a sniff last year.

    Coach Question

    Used to be pretty easy. Don’t think that’s the case now

    A front man does tend to feel a bit different though. Especially for Queen. If Flowers had left The Killers and the others 2 remain they have more original members but feel less like the original band. Probably not logical/fair but Queen without Freddie feel less 'Queen' than The Killers feel less 'Killers' without a couple of blokes I can't name. Have any bands headlined when their front man isn't the one who sang any of the hits?
  20. Don’t think that is completely out of the realms of possibility. Or maybe Billie Joe turning up somewhere considering he was on the farm for a day this time. But does seem the full show isn’t happening.
  21. Springsteen would definitely get me back out to Belgium...

    Whilst what he said is probably nonsense, the headliners aren't usually all locked in by this stage so it's entirely possible.

    Would think if it’s being mentioned again it’s for next year. Without being too bleak he’s 77 now... Obviously Neil had heard next year was a non-starter but maybe things have changed?

    I thought they would never reform based on their past comments but... There has been recent activity with the URL remtour.com and they posted this video on their Facebook: (Saw this all from a retweet of this link https://www.foryoursociety.com/is-r-e-m-about-to-announce-a-surprise-reunion-tour/)
  25. Normally sells out yep. Always possible to get your hands on a spare but can't remember it being this slow for some time - I think the line-up is seen as a bit of a come down after the locals got Liam last year.
