Maiden are a pretty good shout. Would probably sell well especially with a biggish band supporting and bands like Saxon etc underneath. 

I think Paramore probably end up there if they're not at Reading.

Looks like Maiden might be touring so if they don’t do their own shows it’ll be this and Paramore for R&L as you’ve said. Paramore have only got the two options really

Foo Fighters? A picture of each band member every couple hours would lead to an announcement tonight  maybe?

We’d have heard off BST by now if there was another headliner coming so soon wouldn’t we? Besides, Foos can sell out Wembley twice over so BST is a bit beneath them (or I’d think as much).

Agreed.

Plus, interest in the Foos is at a peak it's not been at for a decade. If they're doing a fest it'll be R/L (and perhaps Glasgow Green too) to give the best spread, and otherwise (or as well) they'll do a decent demographic spread of stadiums.

So the 6 mentioned above sounds a good shout.

If six then maybe:

- London

- Manchester

- Sunderland

- Coventry

- Edinburgh/Glasgow

- Dublin/Belfast

?

I know Dublin isn't in the UK but I guess it'd be included in the UK tour.

I’m thinking P!nk for this year...

And Fleetwood Mac playing Rumours in full ...

I had Pink down for this too but she's announced a whole bunch of dates in Australia starting July 3rd so very unlikely now :(

I’d have thought it’s someone who just released an album. And not Dad rock as Roger has baggsied that slot for now. Different genre to Roger. Hence why I’m thinking P!nk.

Wonder if it might be Liam having a crack at it. Might be a bit of a bold move, but his tour is sold out and it would be pretty easy to book a sell-able undercard

Oh hold on

Sounds about right. They're doing well to be still headlining BST at this point imo. Thought they'd be at Kendal next year. :lol:

He's meant to be doing something big next summer but I'd expect it to be in one of the big outdoor venues of Gtr Manchester.

I'll be all over a Biffy BST date. If they got the right support it'd be a great day. It'd be great regardless because, you know, Biffy.

What are we thinking about a QOTSA, Arctic monkeys or U2 day? Or does Biffys seemingly imminent announcement rule Arctic Monkeys out? 

Not sure why that'd rule Arctics out.

Roger, Maiden, Paramore, Kanye, Kasabian, Pumpkins sounds good

I'd say Biffy but I'll go for them doing a Puzzle celebration this year (plz)

Just the bands seem like they'd pull similar crowds to me and thought they wanna mix it up? 

Kanye would be interesting!

Oh wow! What's biffy doing then? IOW?

It's probably a one-off Puzzle anniversary show. There's a t-shirt up on their store saying something about 31st Oct so could be a small show up in Scotland on that date or something.
