Beck confirms brixton academy show in July

Was gutted to miss out on the 2016 date at Brixton so this is of interest.

Quite something that I initially thought this year was going to be quiet for gigs after 2018/19 were intense on that front... there's like a good 10 things I want to do already. 😝

Biffy Clyro’s absence from R/L has surely got to make them seem likely for this now considering there’s few festivals left for them to be at? 

I'm not sure what their options really are. I'm aware that until it became apparent Stormzy was going to do R&L on top of his pre-announced arena commitments, Biffy were linked with it. So this has to be up there for them though.

Unless there's some other event we've all missed. Personally I think them subbing Foos at BST Hyde Park would be pretty awesome, but that's fantasy shit. Even if that would be better in a stadium imo as Hyde Park's acoustics are patchy.

For a festival that's pretty much one of the first in the festival calendar you'd think they'd be eager to get the line up and tickets in. 

Would be chuffed with a Biffy/Lana double header on the Saturday and Sunday of the second weekend.

Which would both explain the late announcements. Biffy once their album/tour is announced (you'd imagine imminently, maybe next week?) and Lana after her UK arena tour finishes so would probably be a 3rd March announcement if it happens.

I don't think there's any reason to delay a Lana announcement until March – her O2 date has sold out and the rest of the regional dates are pretty much all gone as well.

Her team might just be insisting on it being announced after the tour

Can’t see any benefit to anyone for doing that...

Her and her team! LDR's solo tour will almost certainly be a type of deal where if she passes 'x' amount of ticket sales, she makes more money. Festivals play flat fees so that's not applicable.

As previously stated, her O2 date has sold out, and the rest of the tour is basically there, so can’t see the benefit.  In fact, if tickets sell poorly as a result of the delay it would be incredibly bad PR and damage her brand, like it did for C&TQ’s

Do we think someone pulled out?

Well, it’s likely NIN did, but that was a while back. Arcade Fire may have as well, or at least they could have been involved in protracted negotiations which didn’t succeed. Same could be true for RATM or MCR.

RATM probably just got offered more money by reading and leeds

Morrissey is playing the Goldenvoice backed cruel world festival in the US in May. He also has a Wembley date in early March which would explain a delay in announcing along the same lines as Lana.

I'm not saying he'd be first choice for the festival or that it would sell especially well, but if they stack the undercard along the same lines of the cruel world festival it could be an option.

Not a chance. His name is mud in the UK. Who'd support him?

Well if he can be booked for Wembley, then isn't that proof that he has a critical mass of supporters in 2020?

I don't agree with his views but I guess enough people do or can dissemble the personal views from the artist.

it’s interesting that they have made another big Twitter push today. Just announce the rest of the dates and people will make a decision. Until then they loosing punters to other festivals or holidays every day.

As Grumpyraver already stated that still doesn't affect why the show couldn't be announced now if she was playing.

The longer the tickets are on sale the better, otherwise people may decide not to attend due to other plans.

I thought Morrisey was refusing to play any festivals that sells meat or was that just him chatting shit again?

I think a lot of Americans are unaware of how much of a c**t he is. I know a few members of Broken Social Scene did something with him on that covers album and then publically said they didn't know when made aware.

Same with Billie Joe Armstrong 

I cant see any uk artist risking the backlash of supporting a racist in the UK or APE risking a shitstorm on someone unreliable and not a ticket seller.

If they aim at people who are already going to see her this month, if makes sense to wait after the shows. Why would they buy a new ticket if they haven't seen the show yet? Then they might forgot about it. I would think regional dates are important too.
