Re: TV theme

Wow!

Of course you're all assuming that they have ripped Frank off, but what if it's Frank who has ripped them off? :wink:

Re: 2018 tour- belfast

Not that I'd advocate breaking the rules, but, last time Frank played the Limelight I had my then 17 year old daughter with me. We were obviously concerned that she would be asked for ID. As is turned out, the door staff checked out the tickets of those early in the queue and gave out wristbands wit...

Re: Van the Man

Saw him in 2000ish when he played when he played a show here in the Isle of Man in TT week. Since the promoter was IOM Government, he made them keep the airport open so he didn't have to spend a night in the IOM! Whilst the musicianship was excellent, the interaction with the crowd was literally zer...

Evan Dando. So disappointed to read that because I was a big Lemonheads fan, in fact my daughter would have been named Evan if she had been born a boy. Personally I always think Bono.

Cardiff Accommodation

Any recommendations of places to stay in Cardiff, hopefully near the venue with decent public transport links? I've booked digs for Coventry (night before) and Oxford (night after) but Cardiff seems hella expensive everywhere I've looked (perhaps something else on the same night)

Re: Boss in Paris

Hi Watergirl, Were you right up at the barrier at the Bruce gig in Rome? Were you also at the FT gig in Belfast this year? Due to delayed flights and then a confused taxi driver we didn't get to the Circus Maximus until much later then we'd intended, so were quite far back, and watched the gig throu...

Hey Frank,

Are you still intending to hit 2,000 on your birthday, and have the recent cancellations fucked that up?

Re: Dublin Gig - Ticket Master - Advice Please

All sorted with a phone call in the end - though he couldn't give a reason for me not being given a reference number at the time.

There is a way that you can link phone purchases to your online account, but must be done within 30 days of purchase (for future reference if any one needs to know)

Dublin Gig - Ticket Master - Advice Please

Hi all, Bought tickets for Belfast gig as soon as they came out. Had to buy through Ticket Master, who I'd never used before. I registered my details and bought the tickets - so far so good. I then tried to buy Dublin tickets, logged into Ticket Master, it asked for card details, which I punched in,...
