Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Brilliant mate. Faith No More were the best band of the day, though watching Soundgarden do the whole of "Superunknown" was magic. I'd seen Sabbath the week before at a festival in France and they were just as good. Fair play to Lemmy, he's gonna be 70 this year and he still rocks more than bands a ...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I paid £2.50 to see Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Soundgarden, Soulfly and Faith No More last summer.

Price of a pint was MORE than double my ticket :D

Re: Discussions/Predictions about TMW's potential for succes

Exactly. From 1994 onwards, they pretty much owned the rest of the 90s (at least in Britain anyway) and if you factor in the Gorillaz and Coxon's solo hits, from 1994 to 2006. That's an incredibly long time.

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

the real question is... will they play glasto? I don't think they should. If they did, it'll be the 3rd time in 6 years that a Damon band would have headlined. That's too often for casual fans. They've already announced the Foo Fighters (good choice imo). I reckon the other two should be AC/DC and ...

Re: Discussions/Predictions about TMW's potential for succes

Everyday Robots got to number 2 in the UK. Considering they'll be more interest in a Blur record, I think it'll go to number 1 and probably reach silver disc status (60,000), hopefully gold (100,000). Not in a million years will it go platinum though. The last Kaiser Chiefs album was number 1 for 2 ...

What's the reference to Notting Hill about? Is that a Blur lyric?

Re: Favourite Blur album

For me, the self titled. It's the only Blur album where I like every single track. MLIR is a VERY close second but I nearly always skip Miss America and Turn It Up. Unless the b-sides were recorded later after the album was released, I don't understand why Miss America and Turn It Up are on the albu...

If Supergrass reformed for the Blur gig, I'd spend the rest of the evening on the ceiling! Bloody love that band.

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

In an ideal world, some bands I'd like to see have seen supporting Blur at Hyde Park: Jimmy Cliff Killing Joke (might be too heavy for a Blur gig but listen to KJ's early stuff then play Bugman, Song 2, Death of a Party, I'm Just A Killer For Your Love etc. ). My Bloody Valentine Public Image Ltd. A...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

Hyde Park not sold out. So people have either decided that twice was enough for blur in hyde park - probably not helped by all the talk of the terrible sound when they played in 2012 - or were put off by the price I think it's the price, this is £20 more than Hyde Park 2012. I doubt I'm getting £20...

Re: The Magic Whip Tour

I just checked stargreen and ticketmaster about 15 minutes ago. Tickets were still available and there was no internet queuing. Sounds like there isn't a mad rush this time.

.....she hasn't even listened to it yet.

Reads like a Guardian online article.
