Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Yeah but Damon's other recent activities might swell the fan base? This happened to me in 2009 when my love for GBQ and Gorillaz reignited my interest in blur (confined at that point to Parklife and ST which I had bought when they came out). I took my daughter to Hyde Park and was knocked sideways b...

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

Just read that the song "There Are Too Many Of Us" from the new album was inspired by the Sydney hostage situation. Pretty recent then, unlike other tracks that originated in 2013. I think it's the lyrics that reflect (very) recent work from Damon, with the music dating back to those initial workou...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

my favourite band last year was Temples who I saw live and are very good. partial thread hijack alert Agree - if you can get past their dogged retro styling (all grandad shirts, loons, waistcoats, kaftans - I've been there, done that in '72 :roll: ) the music is pretty good. Here's my vid of them a...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Damon's pretty much committed this year though - there's the Alice thing plus new Gorillaz and GBQ records (allegedly...) that boy needs to sit down and catch up with himself! Otherwise he's putting out stuff already a couple of years old - like Everyday Robots and - er - (in a way) Magic Whip (thou...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

'warm ups' will be before, but your question raises the intriguing possibility of other stuff afterwards...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I know, I know - I thought I'd skip Hyde Park as it's not ideal really, and look out for the warm up gigs - but then I got swept up in the excitement and just couldn't resist :roll: I will still hope to catch a warm up gig as well though, because these really are the ones to look out for. At Wolves ...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Just spoken to them and the transaction went through successfully, just for whatever reason the email was never sent. At least I have the booking confirmation now. yeah I got the same - they confirmed the transaction and said they'd send another email, but this didn't appear either. I think I'll pr...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I've had 2 e-mails too. I thought yesterday was the most hassle free pre-sale I'd experienced. Maybe some people had problems with the no purchase necessary code rather than the Amazon pre-sale one. hmmm - mine was the no purchase code... I was intending to use the Amazon code I had but at the last...
