yeow, that actually is just about worth 12 sobs, count me in, last night out before the world cup, thank god i dont have to look at that ugly bastard rooney for four weeks, holland is going to win by the way but im cheering on the dominion of togo, go on....
No sign of the tickets on [url=http://www.ticketmaster.ie]ticketmaster[/url] yet. Anyone bought one from the shops or bars?
I do hate ticketmaster though, last time after thinking I'd bought tickets for a gig, I received an e-mail [b:66f36c6f53][i:66f36c6f53]four days[/i:66f36c6f53][/b:66f36c6f53] later saying "sorry, there was a problem with your credit card". So maybe I got a digit wrong, or more likely some spotty back-office clerk got a digit wrong, since it's obviously a manual process if it takes 4 days.
Tickets are available now at Virgin, Backbeat and Katy Daly's. There is no booking fee with KD's, but Virgin and Backbeat charge £1 and 50p respectively. They will also be available via ticketmaster before the end of the week.
it was a fantastic day and i agree with tom, panda kopanda were great. one of the best on the day though i thought lafaro were great too, esp the reworked oldie - "dougan loves dick", brilliant!!
I agree, LaFaro were the best band of the day, the new songs sounded amazing. A lot of good music yesterday and everything ran smoothly, congrats to all the bands and everyone involved. I will put up some pics soon
