I was going to get a ticket for Cardiff before they SOLD OUT but £50.00 ??. Come on Brian and Roger £50.00 quid WHY that much ?. I only paid £15.00 quid yesterday for 7 hours of pure entertainment at the Tsunami gig in Cardiff.

Granted if Freddie was alive then yes but considering we are only getting 50% of QUEEN don't people think it should be halfed to £25.00 ?

BUT you guys and others seem happy to shell out the cash. Must have more money than me LOL!!

7 hours of Quality Entertainment??? I saw it and it was Shite mate. The only saving grace was Eric Clapton and Jools Holland. What the fekk are that Goldie Looking Chain bollocks all about. Id have paid £50 to get in there and shoot those twats.


There are tickets from £29.

They had to appeal to ALL ages it wasn't just a rock concert. It was never going to be a LIVE AID nothing will ever beat that day. I agree with you GLC were not my taste either nor Liberty (miming). However for someone like me who is 30 and still stuck in the 70's 80's it was freshing to know there are good bands still out there (Keane, Snow Patrol, Feeder , Embrace were all excellent. THEN of course the Legend himself Clapton who's effortless performance was just brilliant (Clapton is always at his best doing the Blues)

Not forgetting the fab Jools Holland! Are GLC for real? I'm undecided if they are taking the p*** or really are like that! I agree with what you said about the ticket prices. It is a bit steep. I'm just lucky that I'm getting mine as an early birthday present, being a poor student!

Hi fabness

Yes GLC are rappers taking the piZZ out of other rappers(especially American ones)Must admit I had never heard of them. Not my scene but the young un's seemed to like them. I've really got into Snow Patrol after seeing them yesterday. They did a song called RUN it was awesome. Keane were very good as well BETTER than Coldplay

Gosh, it's sure hard to argue with "logic" like that... only 50%, eh? Better phone the Better Business Bureau, 'cuz the billing reads as though it's 100%. Hmmmm. You know, it's especially unforgivable, I suppose, in the wake of Madonna charging $250 US for tickets in some venues for a show that's partially lip-synched for these guys to try to get away with $80-85 (roughly).

Seriously, you ought to launch a protest by refusing to buy tickets. That's right, hit 'em where it hurts - in the pocketbook! Don't go. I'm quite sure they'll take immediate notice of your protest, and repent once they've seen the error of their ways. Let's start by holding our breath right now! Go!

Hopefully these prices will weed out the sort of idiots who stand and converse loudly and endlessly throughout the entire show, without regard to the actual performance going on. I am beginning to lose my patience with ejits like that...

It would have been over £100 for all four members so £50 is quite good value.

I had the mis-fortune of seeing Clapton at Hyde Park in 1996 and have never been so thoroughly bored in my entire life.

His "From The Cradle" album was excellent and the recent Robert Johnson tribute album was OK, but to be honest, he's never been as good as he was before he started Cream and Derek & The Dominoes.

Add to that the rather expensive flights, train tickets etc. And yes, it was still worth every penny!!

I was also at this gig...Princes Trust if I remember. I was also totally bored with his performance....too much blues is BORING.Went back to the bus before the end!

I preferred Bob Dylan's set....although before this gig I hated Bob Dylan!! Only really went to see the Who's Quadrophenia..which was brilliant.


We all of us deeply apologise for this god forsaken shit heap of a building...but we will make it rock.
