    The vaccines
    The specials
    Richard Ashcroft
    James bay

    Ireland gets

    The academic! Cheap option again!
  2. Possibly the greatest rock band ever in their day.

    As long as they keep going I don't feel quite so old

    I've noticed that at a few Irish gigs, get in some local band. To be fair to The Academic, just heard their single on Nova and it's bearable but Irish fans ripped off again I fear. On the plus side, looks like the touts will be left with plenty tix. Not a sell out.

    I’ve nothing against the academic either tbf, they’re not really my thing but there’s far worse out there and if they were third on the bill I’d have no problem with it. Nice to see bands like that getting on bills of that size. Just not as the main support act.

    Richard Ashcroft for Edinburgh. Canny if I wasn't already due to see him support Roger Waters at Hyde Park. Woulda much preferred to see Liam support. :cool:

    Anyway, I wonder if he plays Bittersweet Symphony. :lol:

    Disappointed with Ashcroft when I saw Liam Gallagher’s name in the email. But aye, a setlist from Mexico on Saturday included Sonnet, drugs don’t work, bittersweet symphony and lucky man

    Being a Saturday gig like I would have expected maybe one or two more support acts so maybe more to come - obvously don't expect it to be Liam like but still.

    I’m glad Richard Ashcroft is playing some Verve tunes as his solo stuff is awful, or at least what I’ve heard of it.
