Concerts at the Gate

Recommended Posts

Mark Kelly just on local news. They said the stadium had been contacted by music promotors after the second gig enquiring about availability in the future. Some of the artists were big names who haven’t toured for a while, I think he mentioned five gigs? 

I guess if we did do five nights it could be an artist who might do more than one night here?

With Glasto 50 next year, there is probably likely to be a fair few opportunities for some eye catching gigs on the build up.

True but Glastonbury is at the end of the month, will be too late for people "passing by" for the one off gig in the area.

Do people actually tour the same year they headline somewhere list Glastonbury?

I think Glastonbury normally (not all the time) have exclusivity on their headliners for the summer. I’d be surprised if a band big enough to fill AG then played Glastonbury as well in the same month. But, you never know. 

If I had to have a guess;

Foo Fighters, Kasabian, Ed Sheeran, could sell a stadium tour? Could also just as easily do a night or two nights at Wembley stadium which is what bigger bands tend to do nowadays instead of going around the country.

This year The Killers play Cardiff Castle on Friday night before headlining Glasto on Saturday ( I can’t wait!). In the past George Ezra played the Harbourside the night before he did Glastonbury too ( not headlining). Maybe our stadium gigs will have to be over a little too early in the month,  but some bands do tour and then fit Glastonbury in. I saw Coldplay and then saw them again only a few days later at the festival. It’s mixed really, some only do a festival or two others take festivals in as part of a tour.

When The Stones headlined Glastonbury a few years ago the BBC could only show about half of it as they still had other gigs to play and did not want to spoil it for there paying fans.

They clash with Chemical Brothers so that’s where I will be going.  

Never really been a fan of the Killers. Probably because Mr Brightside is always the last song at a fcking party event.

I know, that clash hurts like hell but I love The Killers, but they have much better songs than Mr Brightside. I think I will be seeing a lot of stuff I don’t normally see as there’s not that much for me this year. Stuff like The Proclaimers, Gerry Cinnamon and Kylie all for the laughs rather than serious appreciation of music.

70s/80s male solo artist wanting to make a comeback and could bring in 35k according to article...

ANNOUNCE PHIL COLLINS @Mkelly

That was my top guess as well. The only male solo artist from 70s/80s not currently touring (or actively recording) that I could think of - and who'd also be 'big enough' to sell out 35k.

Could also be Ozzy but thought he'd retired now?

Cliff? Not my cup of tea at all but would sell a load of tickets I would imagine.

Springsteen has been mentioned on here, he'd sell out the ground.

David Gilmour?

BTW, do they announce the attendance at the end of the gig?

International in music terms means successful worldwide. 

Phil Collins/Lionel Ritchie/Bruce Springsteen it is then.

Just can't see Lionel Richie setting 35,000 tickets.

He usually sells out his “arena”venues of 10-15k

saw him at Edinburgh Castle about 5 years ago. Was very good! But no, not a 20/30k+ stadium filler.

Peter Gabriel or Sting could each be due a comeback tour and could fill the ground. Stevie Wonder would be top of my oldies list. Any of Eminem, Adele or Ed Sheehan would be great to see in Bristol.
