I know PSB previously said they will now only play in the dark BUT does the prospect of subbing Elton possibly change their mind?

Obviously I don't know their thought process, but it really shouldn't. They need the darkness (or more accurately, the lighting possibilities that darkness allows) more than most acts. If you take away the "show" aspects of their performance, they'd be two blokes stood largely static on stage for an hour - one behind a microphone stand and the other behind some keyboards.

I've not seen their current show, so this may be different now, but the couple times I have seen them they leaned heavily on lighting and the show wouldn't work nearly as well without full control.

This may sound slightly dismissive but it's absolutely not intended that way - their Other Stage show in 2010 was one of the best things I've ever seen on that stage.

I've seen The Strokes live 7 times, and I maintain that they were only crap once (and even then I'd lay the blame squarly at the foot of the venue, there's a reason Braehead Arena's gigs had been few and far between since those days). Even the time they played Glasgow Green when Julian was in a wheelchair was terrific.

That looks absolutely shite tbh.

Yeah pretty “meh” for me. 

Would probably head to The Glade to get my ears smashed in. 

Love it, that would give me serious headaches between Isley Brothers, Manics and PSB!

On reflection I’d probably end up at Isley Bro’s or PSB, but neither are must sees for me.

Tbh if we get Reg and/or Macca it would be more than enough for me.

PSBs were extremely good when they subbed the Pyramid... they just banged out the hits (... in daylight).

I’d challenge anyone to say they don’t know 5 songs in a psb set …. Covered the generations but maybe I’m a bit swayed by my best friend being a super fan … and owning a pair of £1000 PSB shoes … currently hidden in his shed as he doesn’t want the wife to see them 🙂

You could move PSB opposite Billie and then stick bands in the JP and up in the Park and everyone would be happy. Something like:

  • Pyramid - Billie
  • Other - PSB
  • Holts - Isley Bros
  • Park - Manics
  • JP - Fontaines DC

I’m really not digging that Manics / Fontaines clash 😡

I love the strokes but julians unbothered nature seems to grate on me when they play live. Some acts can do the moody frontman really well - but Julian really gives off the impression he doesn’t want to be on stage.

Saw them at Bilbao bbk, left me cold and I own a few of their albums, others seemed to be enjoying.
