You can but dream

With Pearl Jam announced yesterday for BST at Hyde Park I think they need to perform a warm-up gig somewhere in the UK. What an antidote to the boyband/ girl band line-up we have so far that would be.

Now that's a concert.
Trouble for Kingsholm is it is not as large or as established as the Ricoh as a concert venue. The club are no doubt getting the best acts in that they can.

Killers/Manics combo are playing Ashton Gate as well IIRC. After a bad experience with concert parking at the Ricoh I may go for that instead.

Yes. I'd go to AG, just for the much shorter trip.
But it is frustrating to see such stadia attracting bands that offer more in the indie/rock category, than what's offered at KH - the bland, "legacy performers", and the MoR.

I realise that all tastes need to be catered for, so a kiddies' act is a likelihood for one of the concerts. But is it really too much to ask for someone credible that is/has recently been doing the Summer circuit such as The Cure, Snow Patrol, one of the Gallaghers, The Specials, James, The Foos, Arctic Monkeys, Richard Ashcroft, Weller etc? I live in hope.
