    ….sweet.
    Yeah, I know it isn’t the “real” GNR without Slash, McKagan and Soran, but still………Axl rules.

    Motley Crue are supporting, so could be a great gig

    Guns and roses….lol…well i suppose someone has to like them. I used to follow them back in the 90’s but soon woke up. I didnt realise they were still going. Is it all old stuff or do they actually have new material now

    i’ll believe it when i see it, the ‘new’ guns n’ roses have had too many false starts for me to get excited by this news,

    i am looking forward to seeing The Who though:

    That said, the songs leaked so far have been very promising. Axl hasn’t strayed much from the classic GnR sound and the solos on some of songs are still just as catchy. Still doesnt sound like an album 10 years in the making though! :D

    What would an album 10 years in the making sound like? :?

    Apparently the, albeit very few, live gigs they have done over the past few years have been fantastic.

    Thats the weakest Oxegen lienup in years :(

    Myself and sum mates (who were pissed at how expensive Oxegen is) decided to go abroad for our music need lats year. We went to Rock-Werchter in Belgium, a 4 day festival in Belgium.

    The lineup last year is here: http://www.rockwerchter.be/RW2005/site_en.htm

    It cost 35 euro for return flights, transport to the festival was free inside the country, and for a 4 DAY (thats twice as long as Oxegen) it was 120 euro. Oh, and 15 euro for 4 nights of camping.

    Ill never go to Oxegen again, RW was one of the best trips ive ever been on, and this year were planning to go to RockAM Ring (www.rockamring.net).

    The lineup is looking class already (rock/metal festival).

    Id definetly recomend ditching Oxegen to go abroad.
    Its only when u go to one abroad u realise how crap and badly run the ones in this country are.

    You do realise that Oxegen isn’t a rock festival?

    Maybe you had false expectations?

    (That is a sweet line up though on Rock-Werchter)

    Mein gud, that is some line up at the Belgium fest :)

    Well, if you ain’t afraid to travel a bit, there are some seriously cool festivals in Europe over the summer. If you are a rock fan, it’s almost a requirement.
    Didn’t know about that one you mention, but in Belgium they have Pukkelpop. It’s more of the level of a Glastonbury, really.
    In the same spirit there is the Paleofestival of Nyon, in Switzerland.
    And I don’t remember, but we have tons of other festivals throughout the summer in France. The 21st of June is also the Day of Music, where you get all sorts of animations all over France, it’s pretty cool :P

    Hrm, don’t forget about Wacken in Germany and Graspop in Belgium for the metalers out there. Talk about fantastic lineups. Download was also class last year and I’m ragin I didnt go. Havnt been to Oxygen since it was called Witness and Oasis were playing. Havnt been to Slane since, hrm, it was midly decent? :D

    The local metal bar in Belfast is as far as I go to see a concert. That’s not for any ‘street-cred’. I just don’t want to pay a fortune for a ticket. GnR were a fantastic band, but it might well be time to let it go.

    EDIT: Just heard one of their new songs. It’s nothing to get excited about.

    Saw Velvet Revolver at the Point last year, AMAZING gig, they don’t take themselves as seriously as to not cover old GNR/STP songs, the best gig in a long time.

    Velvet Revolver are class.

    Velvet Revolver have to be one of the best hard rock bands around at the moment. They don’t have any BS image, don’t take s**t of anyone and are just there to rock and roll, like it should be. They even started out as a jam session group! Big Machine and Slither and by far two of the best rock songs released in the last 2 years.

    Most of every debut album ever?
    “Ten years for the debut, ten months to follow up”…don’t remember who said that, Thom Yorke or summun, but its not just coke and touring that renders most bands one-hit wonders…

    Oh well if your into Hard Rock then you should check out Alter Bridge, absolutly fantastic band and their album “One Day Remains” was one of the best of 2004 imho.

    As a festival Electric Picnic sounds great, its just the music/bands themselves that wouldnt appeal to me in the slightest. :?

    i must say i do enjoy the old GnR but this new chinese democracy pap just isnt tickling me up too nicely. i think the ten years has just built the album up to be this great rock classic and from what iv heard of it……well it aint too good.

    Not about the music/bands my young apprentice…you must give in to the power of the snark side!

    Eh, still though, its three years old now, it’ll probably be Oxegen’s mini-me this year, Diageo ads every-fucking-where and 3 thousand noodle vendors…at least it doesnt get too muddy
