This fucking event just keeps on getting better NOT! So the only compensation for such a Crap line up was that blur would be on longer the any of the other headline acts however now that's supposedly been shoetened by TWENTY minutes in effect that's FIVE songs!!!

I wish I'd NEVER brought tickets on pre sale, it'll be the last time I ever buy tickets for such a event on pre sale again, because had I waited and seen what shit the line up was I would have tried to blag a cheap ticket online or on the day.

At least I only live a bus ride away, I'm getting there for around 7', at least I don't have to hang around listening to shit until blur come on, The Specials were the support last time and were superb, now we have some Kitty bollocks and Metro WHO????

Has anyone found out the deal why they don't play 'Ice Cream Man' live? I can only presume they don't like the track and refuse to play it live, similar to how they never play 'Bang' and have disowned that song (I like it).

Pretty strange seeing they'll be a big ice cream van on stage tonight (Facebook have a video of it being put on stage) and they'll be surrounded by plastic ice cream etc.

I think it's a good song and it's strange it's not being played, if there's a thread about the track not being played please show me the link and I'll repost this there.

Some huge March full of dirty unwashed Lefties is taking place in London today so be prepared especially if you're travelling anywhere into town or near Trafalgar Square. One of the unwashed said she would go to hyde park and sabotage the blur gig by throwing warm piss over Alex James :o
.................

massive anti-austerity protest is heading for London this weekend this morning.

This is following recent protests also organised by The People's Assembly following the Queen's Speech and people protesting against proposed Tory cuts.

The demonstrations are happening all over the UK, but the main group will be in London.

Anti war factions, anti-racist and anti-fascist groups, along with protests on housing and changes to strike laws will meet in Central London for the huge event.

According to the protest's Facebook group, more than 71,000 people are set to descend on London. But why is it happening and how can you join in?

This wasn't really necessary, was it?

Can't stand dirty Lefties especially the great unwashed with their dogs on strings,most of them living off their rich parents trust funds having opted out of society because they refuse to do a decent days work, hopefully it'll piss down and they'll all get a decent wash for a change :D

These marches are just another excuse for them to riot it's bound to kick off at some point today, hope they all get nicked,I'd start with that cnut Russell Brand, West Ham cnut!!!

Up the Tories!!!!

Anyone by any chance know if there'll be a front pit, or is it just a free-for-all?

Me and my brother can't decide whether to get there as soon as doors open or not!

Someone said at the Strokes gig there was a huge golden circle, not sure if that's there for blur, perhaps that is something to do with the VIP packages or some other bollocks.

Good luck listening to utter crap for hours before blur come on,

Looks like the sun is meant to come out at around 7/8pm but there could be rain before then.

Surprises me to see people slag off the left wing on here when, let's face it, blur are a left wing band.

I know some people don't like to mix politics and music but it makes a difference to me at least

Looks as if blur have been delayed later on (apparently 8:30 or 8:15 onstage now)
