do you want to know how or does anyone give a shit at all? I just got two.
click on pop up of important information
ctrl+f free tickets
click that link
put number of tickets
enter basic contact (no card details)
it does say on a first come, first served basis tho? http://www.bst-hydepark.com/12julyupdate
he's not doing the show which if anything has made it better
because now it's davies, costello and lowe. And not Elton Shithouse John
Is this some Larry David-esque bald thing because he wears a wig?
are you being ironic or something?
Wouldn't go and see Davies if he was out the back.
I just tried again. :(
I'd like to see Ray Davies live.
i think they've made them free because Elton has had to pull out with appendicitis.
Got my two. Was kinda thinking of going anyway for Ray and Elvis, not fussed about Elton, but seeing those two for free = awesome
really want to go :(
"The tickets you selected are not onsale."
but I really don't like Ray Davies or anything he's done.
Lola was alright. You Really Got Me was an ok riff.
Most of it I think is shit. :(
was he nice?
but my Dad turned up and he left.
He's from my area so I like him in that way. His studio is still in Muswell Hill.
it was kind of a jokey post...
ha ha ha
a couple of Hard Rock Calling ones the other week at the Olympic park, then a few more coming up there for Wireless...
it makes for a pretty lousy atmosphere
thought it was a much improved atmosphere than in previous years, and they've made some effort to make the site not so generically shit.
Not quite loud enough still but by no means terrible.
Was thinking about going to this anyway largely to see Elvis Costello again
(it's a lot better freebie than those Kasabian tickets I got the other week)
i'd love to see nick lowe :(
FFS. Gives such a good excuse to take Friday off work too.
I don't have many useful skills but getting tickets, especially free ones, seems to be one of them.
Just need to negotiate (another) early Friday skive.
Look under price selection, the tickets are £0.
If that doesn't work then http://www.bst-hydepark.com/12julyupdate and click "for free tickets click here".
It seems to be going back and forth between having tickets and not, so if you don't get any, hit refresh and try again
I just got two tickets!
i just tried using IE instead of CHROME and it worked
I got knocked back a few dozen times before it finally worked, about a minute ago.
See you there!
that'll do it
who wants two? don't PM me please.
I'm going to feel bad if I don't go. Poor Ray.
with my mum and sisters :)
it'll be great as long as he doesn't play any new stuff.
'None of you paid to get in so I'm going to play my new (shit) album and you can't complain'.
*twinkley eyes, cheeky grin*
proceeds to keep playing a couple more. comes out for an encore and plays a single track from 'Phobia'.
i've seen ray davies before and he was amazing, although i was very fucking drunk, but this should still be good.
I'm busy, but one of my colleagues will love me for getting these for him. Might even get me something from the vending machine in payback
I would assume so. If they're not adding anyone to the bill then will they start a bit later or spread them out more?
Davies 18:45 - 20:00
No need to skip work then....
...these must be the pre-Elton sickie times. They've just removed his mug and neglected to update the stage times, the TWATS.
because it's free n dat and noone can complain.
there's no way they'll not try and maximise the revenue generating opportunities of the post-work drinks crowd, especially as they're not getting any ticket revenue
So must be original times surely (with Lowe on the 2nd stage).
No way is Lowe playing above Costello and Davies, and straight after Davies...surely?
To bring in The Kast Off Kinks for a hits set...
have gone. I've seen Ray Davies three times; The Roundhouse (brilliant gig), The Royal Festival Hall (average gig) and Hyde Park supporting Bon Jovi where he was a bit rubbish. Anyway, a free gig on a hot sunny Friday night can only be great. Have fun you lucky bastards.
setting in London when you have a drink in you're hand is very cheesy but nonetheless gives you a nice feeling inside.
I have an 3-ticket for 3 if anyone wants them. You may have to pretend to be me (just act cooler). Doesn't look like I will be going anymore. If you want them let me know and when I know I'm not going for sure I can bung them over.
(Does that work with e-tickets or do you have to have ID?)
'Artists including RAY DAVIES, the former-Kinks frontman as well as ELVIS COSTELLO, GABRIELLE APLIN and NICK LOWE will perform on The Great Oak Stage...'
So that's either a slight factual inaccuracy or Nick Lowe is being bumped over to the main stage?
Assuming Ray Davies will be a 9:00-10:30-ish slot
