My friend on Sunday luckily got Me and friends tickets from the Glastonbury resale and I'm off to Worthy Farm for the second year running!

I might go see Billy Joel again, this time he'll be here in Indianapolis (where I now live) in November.

I'm bummed though because in the same week, Ride and Gorillaz will be playing in Boston in July and I can't go :cry: If I was still living back home, I'd be at both shows in a heartbeat, and in a normal year I'd travel back for them, but we're buying a new house and moving in June so I just can't swing it. At least I've seen them both before... :|

Louie - the only names familiar to me on the Phoenix event are The Killers, Huey Lewis & The News and The Pixies.

Mark72 - I loved the festival atmosphere as it was in the 90s. Never went to a Glastonbury - I was at some of the 'V' events :D

MrMagpie - life often takes over, and you have to miss the gigs :| I wish you well in your new home.

Apparently the other artists are more popular to the "Hipster" crowd so it seems! I guess I must finally accept that I'm a geezer! :lol:

Very true, mate, but it's ok. We're buying a new house so the money is better spent there anyway. At least I've seen all of them before, although I always hate to miss out...especially two of my favorite bands who don't tour that often. Oh well, that's life! I may regret not seeing those gigs, but I'll never regret finally having my wife and kids under the same roof with me again and settling into a new house. :D

Seeing Franz Ferdinand next week.
Turns out they have new members, I hope they still sound good.

Nick McCarthy quit? That's a shame.

Can't say how the album's gonna turn out but they kicked ass live, anyway.

This is probably my favorite of the new ones they're playing.

Saw Metronomy yesterday - they had a killer set, all of Summer 08 was played, which was awesome! Happy I got to catch them on the solo act, and not on festival with the smaller set.

I'm off to see The Bluetones at The Bullingdon Arms on the Cowley Road. Really small venue too, so it should a fantastic night!

Yes, that seems the sort of venue for such a band.

Enjoy.... :D
