1982 to 2005! That’s mad. Maiden were such an oddity though, even in ‘05. 

Crazy isn't it. I don't think anyone can beat David Bowie's record.. headlining Glastonbury in 1971 & 2000.

But back to R&L 2022.

Metallica.

No UK show for them yet. I'm not sure if there's space left at BST for them. London stadium gigs are non-stop next summer already. I know they're in Europe June/July, but they did the same in 2015 before returning to Europe in August for R&L and a few other shows.

What i have gathered is nobody really knows anything then and they are assumed to play London. As long as its not Glasto weekend should be ok

Btw not confirmed they are doing BST, just a rumour going about but not sure if fallen through. They defo have something planned down south otherwise the Lytham would've been english exclusive

I’m leaning towards them being back at APE. It was a quick sell out for APE in the past and I can imagine they would want that to return. They had great sales this year but that was kinda because we’d all been let out of lockdown and could attend events again.

Only thing is with the sound issues I think for APE, obviously it would be fixed but it left a lot of people with a sour taste. Saying that though, it would 100% sell out again.

For Reading what about Florence? Quite random but theres always a bit of a strange act, definitely has some well known songs and big on tiktok at the moment too. Not really what I want but just another name to throw in the mix + female fronted as well

Yeah I was at that one and aside from Jarvis Cocker's set on a tent stage, the outdoor sound quality was weird. Interpol on the 2nd stage was very much lower than I expected and The Strokes had a strange paradox of better sound the further I was from the stage. Which I didn't get at all.

I guess it depends when APE is. If they're in the UK for Lytham and TRNSMT, maybe they'll end up just doing their own arena show around that time. But that's a guess as much as anything else.

I would love this but if R&L got Metallica it would mean no RATM. I get the feeling Metallica will be playing BST or another London venue on 3rd of July though.

I think The Killers would go down fantastically but they haven’t been back in what will be 15 years come 2023 so if they haven’t come back in that time, I don’t think they ever will. That’s a long gap between headliners and there can’t be many examples of headliners having such a long gap between appearances like that. Can anyone think of any? 

Thought I had a cracker in The Cure but turns out they weren’t headliners in 1979. It was 33 until the next time they played the festival though returning to headline in 2012.

I had a quick look at the old line ups to see for some massive years long return headliners but instead I'm just wondering why Porno for Pyros and Black Grape headlined when Jane's Addiction and Happy Mondays never did.

Had never heard of the former before... that is a hell of an eye-catching band name. And something to think they've headlined R&L given until this post, I didn't even know there was ever such a band with such a name.

Weren't Janes' Addiction meant to be playing 2nd stage years ago but pulled out at the last minute?

Took them 12 years to come back and do Glastonbury, and if anything they seem to be even more popular than on the Wonderful Wonderful cycle, given most of this UK stadium tour was sold out for 2020 before 2020 turned out to be shit. Guess it's as much a timing thing given they seem to usually end up on the US circuit in August-time.

You'd imagine right offer and timing might bring them back eventually. Even if it's been ages.

I can't remember which festival it was (either R&L or Sonisphere) but when NIN and Janes Addiction were doing that co-headlining tour both were meant to be at a festival as part of the tour but only NIN appeared as Jane's Addiction never got round to doing the paperwork so the fest just got someone else to play in their spot.

Interesting. I was thinking of Reading 2011, where Jane's Addiction were NME/R1 headliners but pulled out due to Perry Farrell being unable to sing due a vocal cord strain (so says headlines from the time).

It said Nine Inch Nails played Sonisphere in 2009 and had Janes' Addiction in support for shows around that time, so maybe that was it.

Are we just gonna pretend like RATM weren’t originally booked for 2020 then?

I personally think they will be back but their EU August run seems a bit quiet and their day didn’t sell out when they were announced last time. They aren’t back at Rock En Seine which is a bit concerning and didn’t Rosklide booker say their touring plans didn’t include Europe? Or is that me getting something confused.

Lollapalooza clashed with Reading in 1991 and 1992, and Perry Farrell had moved on to Porno for Pyros by the time of the latter anyway. 

I remember Happy Mondays doing their own big outdoor shows around that time so they maybe priotised those over Reading.  Black Grape were a big deal for a while - I've seen it claimed that they actually sold more albums than the Mondays but never seen it proved.

Rock En Seine haven’t finished announcing their headliners yet, there’s one more still to come.

The scene was certainly much bigger as a whole, so it wouldnt be surprising
