I guess i was in the other 15% that night lol I watched Andy C over Eminem lol

British Sea Power for me

The Eminem crowd was unbelievable huge though, down the left hand side of the stage anyway, which is where most latecomers end up

The sound was also utterly terrible there, you literally could barely hear it, was funny seeing fans still obviously trying to get involved

Come again?

”If” Jay Z could draw a crowd? “IF”???

The man is considered the greatest rapper alive and the king of the game by the US scene he comes from.

Other than Kanye there is nobody on that level in terms of respect and reverence.

”If” Jay Z could draw a crowd...starting to really question the level of people’s knowledge of music on these boards reading this thread.

Fair play, although when he headlined V in 2017 I got 2-4-1 tickets.

Wasn’t that the one where someone climbed the speaker stand

there was a lad on another topic who works for Ticketmaster. He told us when MCR would be announcing this tour and was correct. He's also saying there's a second show to be announced on the 21st, i assume it'll be at the same venue.

I wish i would have came here and read this and got those tickets before the huge scramble 😔 after buying flights ans a hotel for the weekend and didnt get a ticket. Been on ticketmaster and gigs and tours for over and hour solid and theyr all gone

Just a heads up MCR sold out instantly..... the demand is there.

I don’t think anyone expected it to be any different. This is their first UK gig in nearly ten years.

does anyone have any info on the 1975 outdoor show?

Finsbury Park has been booked out for as a ‘Music concert’ on the 11th of July, could be that?

Looks like it’s defo happening as I was reading an article on NME the other day and Matt was saying they wouldn’t be playing Glastonbury this year as they were working on their own independent gig. 

So I’d say it’s going to happen but I don’t know any details.

No mate, as I said, they’re doing their own independent show.

So like Slipknot are doing with their Knotfest, that type of thing.

When Nas (as legendary but not more for rap afficionados) played he barely drew a crowd.

 

When Pharrel William's (as relevant as Jay Z imo) played last year with NERD he barely drew a crowd.

 

Jay Z hasn't done anything worthwhile for a long time, new gen of kids dont bump his stuff and everyone just sees him as some family man and Mr Beyonce rather than a huge act.

Forgot how big Cage The Elephant are and there new single with Iggy Pop is pretty nice I can see them definitely 4th/3rd down main stage. 

Anyone else think much?

BSP?  Quite possibly but I can't remember it distinctly. They had techincal issues and were on really late but otherwise pretty brilliant as ever.

Just seen The Streets are to be confirmed for Victorious festival so guess that rules them out.

Yep. Between that and SW4, they're out.

Jay-z is less of a pull for the younger crowd than Travis, post,drake, Kendrick etc. Regardless of legacy it’s a zeitgeist fest and not sure how bothered the 16-24 crowd would be with a jay z headline.

Calvin Harris has released 2 new tracks under the alias “Love Regenerator” and they’re banging. Completely different from his usual stuff,  early rave, house-techno kinda music straight out of the 90’s. Sounds very much like early chemical brothers, early prodigy, early Andy C, etc. 
 

Would make a great dance tent headliner if he’s touring it this summer.

I was more talking about a DJ set of strictly the material that’s released as Love Regenerator. In a similar way to Chase & Statis doing a RTRN II JUNGLE set would get away with headlining the dance tent. Obviously if it was a Calvin Harris set, headline or nothing.

Can you even imagine the crowd crush if they put Calvin Harris in the Dance Tent.

You may be right but I assumed if it wasn’t a Calvin Harris set it would be fine. Similar to how TLSP have done midway down the R1 in the past and it’s not been a massive crush just because it’s Alex Turner as it’s not advertised as the act that would be an obvious headliner. Again, might be wrong was just my thinking.

 

(Also just wanted to mention this project incase anyone wasn’t aware because the two tracks released are genuinely really good)

I still think he'd be waaaaaay too big to play the Dance Tent. I could maybe see him doing a special set headlining the R1 billed as Love Regenerator, but even that would be a push I'd say.

I think we can all accept at this stage given the availability of bands and summer gig announcements of bands like MCR and others that the likelihood is that 2 of the headliners at least are going to be in the form of Bring me the horizon and Blink 182 (love them or loathe them). 

I was speaking to people close to bring me the horizon last year at the festival and they pretty much confirmed they are headlining in 2020. As for Blink they STILL haven't announced any summer shows and its now January. Every time they are in the UK in the summer they announce it in November/December at latest. That and a subtle hint from Mark Hoppus when he tweeted last year during a Reading live Stream saying "Needs more Blink". They also havent played since 2014 so are due a visit. 

So yeah I think Bring me are 100% gonna be one headliner and pretty sure the other is Blink 182. Personally I hope some how RHCP is the last one!

Honestly think Jay-Z would sell just as many tickets as the likes of Stormzy or a few other rap headliners. Travis Scott, Post Malone and Eminem obviously would all sell more, but would be great to be able to see someone as legendary as Jay-Z is to the rap genre, would also do a tribute to Chester Bennington which would be amazing to see
