Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Live Performances Thread

Thanks for the info guys! I've contacted the venue and they don't have a support act listed yet, but if there happens to be one last minute, they'll be on at 19.30 and GBQ will be on at 20.30. Really looking forward to tomorrow. The setlist seems to be a good balance between Merrie Land first half, ...

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Live Performances Thread

I'm off to see TGTBTQ in Amsterdam on Thursday. Does anyone know if there's going to be a support act? The venue's website doesn't seem to state one but was just wondering.

Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Live Performances Thread

There's a Merrie England bar on the North pier in Blackpool...

Don't think I'll make it to this gig but if anyone is lucky enough to get tickets, I can totally recommend the Ibis Styles hotel at crawling distance from the North Pier!

Re: Damon Albarn OBE

I saw this photo on FB saying that Damon received his OBE today. I didn't see anything in the news or anywhere else on the web. Has anyone else heard/seen anything? https://scontent-lga3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xfa1/v/t1.0-9/10603759_1737957119756696_2262930513616171198_n.jpg?oh=acb06b2125b1b0012e3d...

Re: NEW ALBUM: The Magic Whip

Feb 19th is my birthday, so you can imagine the news and the release of Go Out was the best birthday present in YEARS. :D I was at a work meeting when WhatsApp-messages from friends started coming in. Was in meetings all day so couldn't watch the press conference live and had to wait until I got hom...

Re: Gig: Los Angeles, 20 Oct

The guest star was Fred Armisen. Never heard of him, apparently he's a Saturday Night Live comedian.

My money's on Fallon for NY!

I love how the NME seems to think ice cream vans are typically British.

Re: Gig: Blackpool, 10 June

I had a fantastic night - was 3rd/4th row but moved more to the side after the barrier incident, thinking I'd prefer a care-free concert rather than keeping an eye on the barrier the whole time if I'd stayed where I was, and I think I made the right decision. The atmosphere on stage seemed a bit sub...

I've already collected mine, too! So, where is everybody? Which pub are you all hiding at? :-)

Re: Gig: Blackpool, 10 June

I never got that e-mail about international tickets being box office collection only, but maybe that's because I'd already called to arrange that. I'm actually starting to wonder if they even bothered with sending tickets abroad, since they knew there was no way they'd arrive in time. Only one more ...

Re: Gig: Blackpool, 10 June

Don't forget to bring your credit card to the box office. Axs told me they'd need to see that as well as my ID.

Re: Blackpool Show Thread

Mine still hasn't. I called AXS and they'be arranged a box office pick-up. I asked if I could pick it up during the day but they said there's a possibility that they might not be starting the distribution of the tickets until 5 pm.

Re: Blackpool Show Thread

Haha, true, that. Never a dull moment!

On a side note - at which pub will the pre-gig forum meet-up be? I'm not sure if I'll be able to make it, but it would be nice to know which place to go to if I do decide to pop in.

Re: Blackpool Show Thread

And you're all in the UK, right? If they haven't arrived there yet, there's absolutely no way they'll be in other countries in time. How amateurish. The gig was sold out by noon on the day it went on sale. The whole batch of tickets for that show could have been printed and dispatched on that very s...

Re: Blackpool Show Thread

I'm abroad, so I don't think I'll get mine in time. If they haven't arrived by Saturday I'll give AXS a ring, as there's no mail delivery here on Mondays and Tuesday will probably be too late for them to get the tickets to Blackpool in time. All those worries could have been avoided if they'd just g...
