Got the Dream Wife album launch in a couple of weeks time.

Planning to go to all the APE days if the magic money tree in my garden grows in time.

B0llocks - The Cure at Hyde Park has sold out!

Bollocks indeed. Was thinking of going to that, mainly for the supports.

Is anyone familiar with next-concert? It's a service offering tickets to expected upcoming gigs with refunds if the gig doesn't happen and part refunds of the difference if their ticket price is higher than the reality once the gig goes on sale. They claim to guarantee tickets (I expect for a not insignificant commission fee). Is it legit? Is it reliable?

Thanks

Don't use it mate. There's no guarantee they'll get you a ticket. You're paying for someone to get you a ticket rather than just doing it yourself, so even assuming it's legit you're better off doing it yourself.

never heard of them, but on the basis of them promoting stuff that's not even announced yet my take is that they're dodgy as fuck and should be avoided like a plague -flea-ridden rat a man with plague carrying fleas*.

(* a bit of topical history for you there :P)

Yeah there's a pre-sale on Thursday and general sale on Friday. If you go to Editors' page on Facebook there's a post saying you need to preorder the album to access the pre-sale. But click on the link and then the "no purchase necessary" bit and you can sign up there for free. They'll then email you a code and a link, got mine straight away when I signed up earlier.

On-sale for David Byrne is Friday, with presale tomorrow apparently. Tix starting at £33.50 and topping out at £47.50 for the Manchester date, according to Ticketmaster.

The U2 tix top out at £190.00 apparently too - though start at £35.00.

Jack White just announced for 2 nights at Hammersmith at the end of June.

I was just thinking this morning how if I don’t see Jack at a festival it’s no bother cos he usually does shows around England and not just London. This is some bullshit.

Looks like I'm off to London in June.

Already asked for time off work for both shows.

Still nervous about Jack White's new album though.

Make sure you get there early enough that your stood in the main square in front of the stage, waste of time if you'e anywhere outside it. I've been to a couple of gigs there, it's pretty enough but I'm not clambering to go back. Soundsystem couldn't handle django django but I guess that shouldn't be a problem with Editors, it was fine at the other gigs I've been to.

I just realised that he has done the Hammersmith Apollo last two album tours and then come back to the UK in November, so from what I’ve heard of the album I’m set on waiting. Would be cool to see him in a venue he clearly prefers though.

Yeah he's done London early on then come back later on. I'll hopefully get to as many as possible.

What are Jack White tickets likely to cost? Something daft like the best part of £60? I'm kinda tempted to go down for him as it's so close to the QOTSA gig in London so it's not too inconvenient if I can find a mate's to stay at. I'm having a White Stripes day to catch up on the last 20 years and De Stijl has just clicked with me, and Icky Thump is unbelievable. Seems silly to consider a gig in London when I've heard one of his solo albums once as of yet but he's gotta be worth seeing.

Also seeing Wolf Alice at the Gorilla would be cool. I thought their gig at the Ritz a few years ago was a lot better than their recent Apollo gig so maybe the smaller the better with them. Gotta be worth entering knowing worst case scenario you've donated a fiver to charity.

When I saw him at Hammersmith in 2014 it was £45, so yeah I would imagine £55+ for this. He plays a great selection of stuff at his gigs, I'm always blown away. Theres a couple of presales for it so could be worth registering for one, these will go quickly.

Hmmmm that's a lot. I'm going to Bilbao BBK and I guarantee he will get announced as the last headliner for that if I buy a ticket for London haha. Might buy one if it's not a gig where you need ID to get in so I at least have the option to sell the ticket. Cheers for the info! :)
