Glastonbury / Hard Rock calling now looks more likely
Glastonbury link up?
However I was naughty and couldn't resist.
I hope not. I'm currently absolutely absolutely obsessed with CSN. But what robbing wankshafters.
I'm gonna go to that without doubt. On my own, probably.
Amazing news! This'll totally make up for the time I decided to miss his set at Phoenix 96 so I could watch Lush and Shed Seven.
I missed Bowie the night before to watch Kula Shaker too.
on efestivals claiming that Neil Young has pulled out of Glasto for IOW. I can't get on the forums though if anyone wants to check for an update?
The concert (Primavera) will also be the first European tour of his new album, Fork in the road. The route of the tour was being organized on the basis of their performance at Glastonbury festival in England in late June. The singer's original intention was to give several concerts in July, and why there was another festival Catalan bid for the contract. However, those responsible for the Primavera Sound pressed with such insistence that Young has restructured its entire tour, which now starts in late May.
Ticketmaster says he's also playing in Aberdeen and Nottingham. I've booked tickets, I just hope it's true.
Neil Young summer concert tour dates are starting to fall in place.

Blur are confirmed for Sunday headliners...
Does anyone know what the weather will be like over there? I hope its not unbearably hot.
I don't explode with glee like the last time I saw him. Its not a pretty sight. Its usually not unbearably hot at all around Primavera time. I mean, its quite warm, but you'll probably need a very light jacket around evening maybe.
Are they easy to come by at Primavera? I realize they are not big or clever.
not easy. We got offered a load on the second night last year, but seemed like a quite random random. Not that I would do such things, but if I did, I have a mate who lives in Barcelona who takes care of such matters.
I got offered a couple of times but on the whole it's not that easy - if I was to do such a thing I'd go to one of those side streets of La Ramblas where there's a few dodgy folk around.
you get ripped right off if you buy a tomato sandwich, let alone anything more dodgy. there are often some people round the vice stage. i was offered by two amazing goth girls who seemed to appear out of nowhere, was a surreal experience, possibly even angelic, if that's your thing.
and i'm pretty sure you'll be able to find what you're after.
