    Playing Newcastle Arena next October.

    O2 Priority tickets were advertised as going on sale tomorrow, but I've just been on the website and got mine today, if anyone was planning on getting them through O2.
  2. Great band but Jeff is a right boring fucker on stage.

    Yeah ours were £115 face value for Row 5 of Block A, but went up to £129.50 with all the fees. Think lowest was about £57

    Good job him, David Gilmour and Bill Wyman didn't form a band :lol:

    £130 to see a band in that barn is ludicrous. But if people want to pay it they will charge it.

    Agree the venue is very poor.

    I went the last time and the band were amazing.

    I balked at the price this time, but at least it means I don't have to pay for travel, hotel or take time off work. I'm really looking forward to the day they pull the arena down and build that new one in Gateshead.

    We saw them in Birmingham on the last tour, they were excellent. But midweek in Brum or London is a no go for me.

    He doesn't need to do fuck all, the songs do it.
    Did Roy Orbison jump around like fuckin Iggy Pop?

    True. When it was the ELO most of us knew, Mik Kaminski would be doing the jumping around and Kelly would be buzzing. Have to say I went to Manchester gig last time around and as big a fan as I am, it left me torn between feeling cheated that it was indeed Jeff Lynnes ELO I was watching and not ELO and happy to hear all the old songs.
