saw them at Reading about 30 years ago. Didn't do much for me.

Nobody like everything, 's a fact. Many great reviews of his 2018 gigs. (Fukk I sound like Trump) 😱

Still baffling me.

Every act I come up with I think they would be more suited to Ramblin Man or Download.

 I think the best I can come up with to fit Beardy would be Dinosaur Jnr , who are excellent live and were brilliant at EOTR a few years back , but not sure they would be the stellar headliner .

Same here. Then the Pixies came on my headphones and I thought 'OOoh...hello!'. Can't see it but that would be immense...they were sooo good at Bluedot a couple of years back. Actually, Bluedot is half the capacity of Bearded so maybe its not outside the realms of possibility.

I saw Pixies on the Doolittle tour , what a night we started near the front and by the end of the gig  who we found ourselves near the back.

It was soo hot and what I remember also is before they came on Black Francis came from the side of the stage in bare feet and checked out the set up on  stage ( sort of checking out how much room he had or where he was going to stand )  before wandering back to the dressing room.

What I find hard is trying to think what headliner BT would go for .

Its far easier guessing them for Glasto , Leeds & Reading etc

Band or an individual ? Both

It's this bit that is intriguing me (I'm resisting asking for a PM as I'm quite enjoying the speculation). 

Alice Cooper fits that description better than anyone else I can think of unless it's a Singer and The Backing Band kind of name.

Has anyone who's received the PM been able to poo-poo the idea?

 

Love a poo-poo.

I wouldn't worry - I asked for a PM but haven't got one so am still speculating!  😃

I just see Alice more as a Ramblin Man headliner or lower down the slot at Download and not Beardy .

Me too But I'd be made up, especially if he brought the old band over. And let me choose the setlist.

I'm not sure how well the theatrical side of it would go down, if he still does all that....

Lord if the Boa when missing I would just abandon my tent and check into the nearest hotel .

Woodland Stage would be a no go with that on the loose , that would be native habitat !

Would Bryan Adams be a Beardy booking ?

I reckon he'd have to do the theatrical stuff to keep the casual observer happy but the best I ever saw him was the time he many dispensed with all that stuff and just delivered a killer set list.

Nah. Another one I've seen loads of times and was always good despite diminishing album output but I couldn't see him at Bearded.

He played Cropredy in 2013 (and went down a storm apparently) so I don't doubt that he'd play BT and go down trifficly.

Don't normally enjoy "crowd footage" but this is worth watching

I reckon this is the best shout yet, but does rely the dude who said he’d heard a rumour incorrectly saying he wasn’t English

Barstewards aren't there next year which is a shame as I really enjoyed them this year. 

Last time they were not there they did an open mic slot in the Tea Tent :ph34r:
