Bristol Rob

Ashton Gate Summer Gigs (Merged)

Recommended Posts

I'm waiting for Tommy to rock up and make some case for Bristol Sport not knowing their arse from their elbow* and championing some obscure Swedish rock band no one has heard of.

*Yes, I am aware that elbow is also the name of a band.

As opposed to being in town where you get glass with your £5 pint but no music?!

Re The Killers...

They have played Bristol before, anyone catch them at The Fleece back in 2004?

Straight from work I suggest. Macc Lads on at 8pm so time to have a few in the Hatchet, Rappin’ Andy and Chief are also coming.

Saw the Killers in Hyde Park, 2 years back I think. Terrific terrific band. So many anthems. 

Listening now to them on my Sonos. Great anthems

They may not be to your taste but the Killers are right up there with some of the best in the world, ive not seen them live yet but from what I've seen on YouTube and heard off of people they are amazing live, many acts fail to deliver live but these dont.They absolutely killed Glastonbury (see what I did there? I'll get my coat 🙈)

This is a huge result for Ashton Gate and I think we can safely say we have established ourselves as a top concert venue.

Yep, their tour tickets are pretty pricey! Both legends though, Daltrey is 75 and Townshend is 74 I think ... fair play to them for keeping it going ...

Nothing beats the buzz of coming offstage after a gig ; not drugs, not alcohol, not sex .

You can’t really host A list international Rock bands AND show the likes of Home Alone as a drive in cinema, at the same time. 

I think we’ve probably missed the boat with the drive in cinema, now they’ve established themselves as THE go to venue for such events, so we are going to just have to settle for the Rock concerts for now and just home the the cinema screening out grow the Mems capacity, then we might be able to do a “Matty Taylor” with them..!

Saw the killers at Wembley maybe 6 years ago, they wrote a song just for that gig. All about the history of Wembley. The twin towers appeared on the big screen, then the three lions and Bobby Moore lifting the World Cup. Sends shivers down my spine still. Look it up on YouTube. Killers Wembley song. Brilliant. 
thanks for the link to pre sale above. I’m in !!

We tried to get them a couple of years ago but they opted for Swansea instead as they had the experience. Looks like they intended playing here and have kept to their word that they would now we are proven

Do the kids still like the Killers? Hot Fuss was pretty much the soundtrack of my teenage years, topped off by seeing them smash the Friday night pyramid stage at Glastonbury in 2004. Big band to get down the gate.

Only seen them once at Wembley in (I think) 2013 and they were awesome. 

The Royal Albert Hall concert is one of my favourite concert DVDs, just a great show.

'The kids' probably aren't the target audience these days. With ticket prices from fifty quid upwards.

Could not agree more - for £30 a ticket they are outstanding value for money. 

I saw the proper Mac a few years ago in Birmingham and left very disappointed. Saw Rumours last year and I would say they were everything I wanted from the actual line-up. 

Saw them at Weston playhouse, thought their version of Albatross was better than the original, it's great they do the old songs as well.

I’m in the minority probably but I really don’t see £50 as unreasonable at all for a night’s entertainment like that when you compare it to the cost of other leisure activities.

“We’ve worked closely with Bristol Bears to ensure that this event won’t have any impact on the playing surface should the rugby club achieve a home semi-final in the Gallagher Premiership."

Good luck with that, as any if there is a play-off game to be played, it would be three days after this gig :blink:

In comparison 90 minutes of football is 30 quid.

If I'm able to secure tickets I'll be making a whole day of this, starting on the harbourside and making my way down stopping at all the pubs on the way.

Agree with you that fifty quid isn't unreasonable, but when you consider pitch standing is seventy quid, if you were 15 or 16 and wanted to go with a few school mates, it might be beyond the average youth to get the coins together. 

The Jam used to play afternoon matinee gigs for kids!

Tickets for Wembley Arena were £5 back in 82.

Not sure what that would equate to in today's money, but that was about the price of an album.

I was robbed, paid £7:50 and ended up at the furthest seats from the stage possible 🙄

You could wear a pink carnation and have a rolled up copy of the evening post under your arm and agree to meet at 6pm on the centre.

Oh my god so did I.

They were amazing, I still remember Mr Brightside.
