21/10/07 cant believe it!!, last time they played here was liek 8 years ago or something!! on sale on friday :)
the tour WILL BEGIN!
is club academy, which is like teeny, last tiem i saw them play here they played the academy 2 which is a lot bigger. this was 8 years ago though so maybe they were bigger then? i hope it doesnt sell out too fast!
but its 6 hours on train from here... i'm gonna go to london + brighton definitely, maybe bristol if its at a weekend?...
they played with mars volta and the apes.i was at that.got a really good recording of it
it was 27th march 2002
i remember it was around then as we went for my mates bday and his birthday was around then. i didnt knwo they played with mars volta :( gutted i missed that
i will still have to go, trains or no trains.
I thought it was the Late Rooms, actually.
...for what WE know.
Bristol date if there is one. There
Brighton date. Quite possibly there.
as grateful dead fans once did.
brighton promoters and they're trying to make it HAPPEN in the smallest venue possible...
which is why I want to go there.
...we'll see what can be done.
the promoters i was talkin to...
lovely folk, v professional...
God, how I hope I can make it
is playing In The City somewhere that afternoon, this would be brilliant if we could go along to the gig after! Timing or what!
anyone know what the guarantee is?
i'd have it a guess at around 3-4k
less in the smaller towns
actually, more like 1-2k judging from these small venues....its wierd some promoters lately must be getting some great prices in order to put some big bands at such small places, i.e. rilo kiley in academy 3, we offered the ritz and a lot more money, but dont have the ability to offer 5 shows around the uk in one go like SJM, so lost out
I can't believe I missed this thread! Wonderful news. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, according to See Tickets.
At Last!!1! Any idea how much ticktes will be? Last band I saw in club academy was Electrelane, and that was about £8 I think...reckon it'll be a similar amount?
and about the same for Hold Steady, so I'm hoping it'll be in that region. Club Academy is a great venue for them to be playing too - it's so easy to get near the stage, and therefore for Tim Carrington to get his sweaty features far, far too close to all of us!
Yup! Cant wait!
