That reminds me too much like when Thrice and Refused were gonna do a co-headline show at Brixton, they downgraded it to Shepards Bush but ALL of the Brixton tixs sold become standing tixs at Shepards Bush so the stalls were incredibly rammed and it just became a hellish gig which is such a shame as both Thrice and Refused were great.

By the time I go to this it'll be 16 and 17 years since I've seen those respective bands. A lot of people probably have the same experience, but it's the first time I can see such a massive bridge between me now and me as a yoot.

I saw TBS on their anniversary tour a couple of years ago (after around a 10 year gap) and they were great, had a thoroughly great night. They played their first album in full which helped a bit but newer songs like Tidal Wave go down well. Never really been into AT outside if a few songs and fucking hate viccy warehouse so I'll swerve it this time though.

I got freebies for the brum date of that, having eschewed buying the tickets due to the price (and knowing exactly what would happen)

A co-headline tour should cost between 1 and 1.5 times what you'd expect for just one of the acts. This makes it value for the consumer, and they can play a larger venue. Thrice and Refused basically stuck their prices together and thought they could play rooms bigger than they'd ever played on a headline before. They multiplied 1 by 1 and thought the answer was 4.

Yeah I was surprised they went for a venue that big and thought I might be able to get cheap tixs closer to the time but I was happy to pay the price as both bands are awesome live so it would make a great night out rather than being stingy like Gazza who counts the amount of songs he likes from a band against the ticket price to see if it's worth going.

It was the fucking horrible overselling the smaller venue from underselling the big venue that ruined it for me.

Been to a few gigs and wrestling shows like that. Worst was At the Drive In's comeback a few years ago. Got downgraded from the academy to the institute, and tickets were half price in the lead up. Absolutely rammo. Think they should've either downgraded or discounted the tickets, but not both.

The shine was off the first chance to see them in 2 decades when they opted to tour as support for Royal Blood first.

Yeah, At The Drive In were proper shit when I saw them supporting Royal Blood at Ally Pally. They should have stayed broken up lol.

Awh yeah I’m so there. Swear my 2022 gig schedule so far is almost exclusively 2002-07 emo kid favourites, and I’m pretty stoked about that. 

Guessing the support will end up being somebody new-ish, although it’d be nice if it was another band from that scene/time.

Me too. Definitely makes up for not catching them at Slam Dunk. Honestly didn't see this happening.

Thought Catfish were breaking up?! Or at least that’s what the word was on the R/L section after their headline sets there.

Haha I did think this when I saw the poster! I've reserved a hotel for the December days just in case, though I'd expect it to actually happen some time next year.

A stadium show in December sounds cold 

They put the roof on last time, back when it was the Millennium Stadium in 2005. Was a bit chilly still but wasn't too bad 

What a day that was - Oasis supported by Foo Fighters, with Razorlight at their height, The Coral and the Subways

In what seems to be a regular occurrence for me at the moment, work commitments are disrupting my gig-going and as such I have a spare ticket for Squid's gig at the Marble Factory in Bristol on Thursday. Gutted about missing this one as I really think no one is making music like them at the moment and it's set to be a tremendous show in a venue I really like. Anyway eFests friends, if anyone wants the ticket free of charge, drop me a message on here
