Is it seriously just going to be Bat for Lashes?
why yr worried?
surely yr goin for radiohead? y'll be able to see any of the support bands in better, smaller venues.
that, given their last few outdoor tours, one support act of bat for lashes size/status/popularity/whatever doesn't really justify the ticket price.
£40+ with fees for Glasgow this year, while Edinburgh Meadowbank was £25ish August 2006 with Beck and Deerhoof. Admittedly, 2006 was a T on the fringe show, so Tennents would have run it as cheaply as possible, while this is an 'eco-friendly' tour, which inevitably costs more.
I'm not unhappy, and would probably pay even more to see them, it's just that one act seems a little sparse at the moment, given price and past line ups.
it wasn't a t on the fringe show
it happened to take place during the festivals run but tennents had not a hand in it.
but yeah, was part of t on the fringe so that may well have kept prices lower. Before that on the big top tour it was about £28, and the only support was clinic, and that was 8 years ago. Inflation eh.
should have read above about totf
i mean across europe in 06 it was Beck and Deerhoff.
but just Bat for Lashes will be a bit on the cheap side for pretty big shows.
I mean, even the chili peppers when they were doing those mediocre hyde park gigs actually got James Brown to support.
as a warm up for Glastonbury though. Can't imagine for a second that he needed the money, he just wanted to play to a 50,00 + crowd.
And warm up he did. Christ, he sung "I feel good" for what seemed like 45 minutes.
JAMES BROWN supporting Red Hot Chili Peppers. i know they're a huge band and everything, but it's like Public Enemy supporting Uncle Kracker.
considering how average RHCP was too. Brown was a legend! Opening with Soul Power too - after like that 10 minute introduction
but that's maybe a little optimistic
...have improved their live act significantly since I saw them a few months back. I like the album, but live they were pretty flat.
I'm seeing BfL again in Oxford tomorrow, and I'm sure she'll be wonderful, but while she's brilliant in a small venue, I'm wondering how well she'll scale up to the sort of places Radiohead are playing.
just so long as they didn't play anything from their sophomore album.
because I saw them last week and they still are, when they do their occasional get-togethers.
Tony Wright's still the best frontman I've ever seen.
more support would be cool, but id be happy if it was just bfl. i dont actually think 50 quid is that much to pay for a 'big name' act like radiohead. i seem to be in the minority as far as that goes though
i'm started to get paranoid
They said so. I got my Dublin tickets last week! :D
...there'll be another support band, as MGMT have been announced for Manc. I would love it to be the National :D
to save the world
I'm worried about, looking at latest Radiohead live videos it looks like they will fully justify the ticket price - it's just that there's probably gonna be around 5 hours between gates opening and Radiohead coming on with nothing but overly priced food mobiles and BFL to pass my time
radiohead reggae for the win
I've not. I'm worried.
get over it.
underworld are playing too right?
Forgot that it was coming up so soon. Need to sort transport.
I've had a look around and seen three different times (4pm, 7pm and 8pm) listed. But don't know which, if any, are right.
