tickets go on sale in 7 hours and I can't go. This is a bad thing.
That's okay - neither's he!
otherwise I'd be all over these
just out of interest.
I may get summarily dismissed from DiS for this but I'd pay £60plus to see Steveland way before I would give Tom Waits £75.
depends on what he's playing. Both of those prices are absolutely ridiculous. I know they don't tour much these days, and thus I suppose £30 tickets won't cover costs, but, and especially in Stevie's case, surely that isn't such a big deal anymore, what with the multi-million-selling albums and all? Greedy promorters.
And I'd plump for Stevie over Tom, too.
At least someone round these parts knows the score.
And yes anything over 45£ really does stick in my throat but they know what to do with the 'legend' pricing game. Just enough to make a killing but not too much as to fail to sell. Cunning bastards.
Do you reckon he still does Uptight, or will it be all the shitty 70s80s stuff and that boyband one?
I'm sorry, I can't help that, it's a twitch reaction. I'm under the impression that it would be a greatest hits style package. Also 4 of his finest albums were made in the 70's!
what shit stuff from the 70's?? He didn't do ANY bad music in the 70's! In fact, most fans would probably consider Music of my Mind, Talking Book, Innervisions, Fulfillingness' First Finale and Songs in the Key of Life to be a fucking awesome golden run of albums!
tickets from your usual internet merchants I expect.
I've just googled it. And I can't go either, so never mind; just shelled out 45 nicker on Radiohead next Tuesday.
I'm about to start a new thread so watch out.
for Manchester, up in the god's somewhere but will have made my wife's day as he's on her "Top Ten People to See Before I Die" list.
Originally tried to get tickets for London as much I hate the *spit* O2 *spit* but they were gone in an instant. What is the MEN Arena like? As cavernous and anonymous as Wembley and Earls Court?
but wouldnt order me a ticket
was £150 for 2 at the o2
