Does Rivers have beef with us or summat?
easier for them to spend their time and energy touring US arenas and making megabuck$$$$
I don't think they *only* play festival gigs. They toured Make Believe in 2005 properly. They've just not been over here at all since then.
Especially seeing as Rivers' songwriting has gone down the shitter. He strikes me as a man who only writes well while under emotional duress. Someone needs to selfishly sabotage his happiness so we can get another angst-filled slice of genius! My thinking is that if this happened, the album would commercially bomb and he'd be forced to play Brixton Academy once again!
the last time they were here in 2005 i saw them a few times and none were festivals.
I wish they were doing other dates other than Reading/Leeds, i just can't bring myself to pay that much to see them there :(
They are the perfect festival band after all. Imagine a run like Jonas, Tired of Sex, Photograph, Keep fishing, Surf Wax, etc. Pure awesomeness!
opened with Jonas I think and got one of the best crowd reactions I've ever seen - everyone was singing along to basically every song.
the problem now is that you'd get that except that run would be punctuated with Can't Stop Partying and We Are All On Drugs and just no.
