Stromae is a work of many years trying to get him back on stage. 

A day event like Boutique was the reason to be back. I don’t think this would have happen without Boutique. 

yes it would, you don't decide to make a new album and a tour thanks to ONE show 😕

I think it's more of an image thing - he headlines big one day event on a festival venue in his native country, it's a great way to come back. After he agreed to play this show persuade him to do some others probably was easier.

in this way, I get it lol ^^ and of course he HAS to make his come back in Belgium ! 😄 but I can't imagine him being back "thanks to one show", it would have happened anyway.

It was mean of me, and for that I regret saying it, however I still do believe she'll fade away when the next pop princess is in town. Ellie Goulding was doing pretty well, but haven't since heard from her. Lily Allen was also on quite a high, same story.

Dua Lipa is miles bigger than both of them. People are saying she could do Glastonbury next year, those two never even got close. Didn't even think they were particularly big outside the UK honestly - dua lipa is massive. 4 songs with over a billion spotify streams too and currently #4 in the world. She's not going anywhere.

Yes, that’s the thing. Why would they create a day event for him, if he was available for every festival, they would have put him on Rock Werchter. 
Stromae himself was perfectly fine with creating a new album and not to tour.

With Stromae playing another belgian festivals, is he big enough to sell out Werchter field?

My biggest questions right now are:

1. Are NIN still Hellfest exclusive or Trent can top The Barn on Saturday?

2. Will The Strokes support/sub RHCP on Sunday? (hopefully)

3. Who's subbing Pearl Jam? The War on Drugs or Pixies ?

Dua Lipa's tour isn't yet sold out. She has dates that if she was that huge as is said there wouldn't be standing left. As said before, anyone can go on Spotify and listen, they didn't buy Spotify just to listen to Dua Lipa. 

If we want to know how big an artist really is then look at what they can sell. Currently, Dua Lipa is not headlining Glastonbury. She will need to take the sub slot/Other headliner this time I think and next time come with a banger album. 

Her album wasn't as good as her debut, her best song recently was on two later relases of the album with Miley and the pandemic delay has affected her.

I 100% agree with that, I think many female pop-RnB artists are just here for 2 albums top, but Dua Lipa seems to me way bigger, I hope she will confirm with her next album. Then we'll see if she's in the "Katy Perry - Shakira - Pink" etc.. category, or in the other... But TODAY, she might be the biggest female artist, with Billie Eilish.

The Strokes para mim seria incrível, amo a banda. Espero que algumas bandas como Sum 41, The lumineers, Girl in red e The Pretty Reckless ainda estejam na formação. Além disso, gostaria de ver Wolf Alice e Phoebe Bridgers

I agree with you about Wolf Alice and Phoebe Bridgers... but I also liked St. Vincent... all 3 on different days.

 

 

As for Dua Lipa who are here talking on the forum , she will perform here in Portugal in two places , in the Capital and in my city which rarely receives international artists and even so she has not sold out any concerts so far .

In America The Strokes open for the PJ, but only if they don't like to do it in Europe.

I think it fits The War on Drugs better

Seems like RW will be the cheapest way to have a good view at a RHCP show... Never seen tickets so expensive for their shows. Golden circle is 139€ in Paris: it was 67€ in 2012... For Nijmegen, tickets are almost the same price. Wondering if they won't ask too much for festivals soon...

Golden Circle in London is equal to €196 after fees. Fucking ridiculous. Or you can stand at the back half of the football pitch for €114.
