I wonder if they'll announce a couple of the support acts ahead of Fridays general sale. Im pretty sure the other 3 BST concerts had their line ups revealed.

It was a bit steep £80 all in and yes, I expect a couple of great supporting acts for that price. I'm still hoping for more shows after Hyde Park, maybe in the autumn, something smaller and cheaper. I'll probably do one of those on top of Hyde Park, anyway.

Are people meeting up at Hyde Park? Wouldn't mind getting together with people from the board :)

I put me trousers on, have a cup of tea, and think about leaving the house...

Yes! :mrgreen:
There were some worrying crowd safety issues at the front at the Libertines set last year, I'd be careful!

Do we have any idea of when are they going to announce more gigs? Maybe they said something in any of the interviews...

All I've heard, I may have missed something, was Dave mentioning to Jo Whiley that announcements on other gigs would be this week, as things were still being arranged at the time of the interview. Have to wait and see.

That's because the Libertines attract some seriously dodgy fans. I have experienced crowds of all kinds and learned that some bands have more rowdy followers than others. A section of The Stone Roses followers are yobos, too. Generally speaking Blur have nicer fans - of course you can always get the piss-head that ruins it for everyone.

So I made the switch to the new forum after the unexpected news. What leads us to believe the shows will be announced this week? Sorry if I missed something...
Sunn amps and smashed guitars.

:shock: It's sooner than I expected then! Well, so much better for me because I'll have to make a bunch of extra arrangements if I want to attend to any gig XD
