Was in a horrid crammed, stuffy lecture when my friend text me about this. i thought she was joking at first.
Will be going! Just checked and it dosen't clash with any exams. Another friend has said i could crash at her house, so i have somewhere to stay sorted. Will bring back memories of the first time i saw Frank at Wembley Stadium with Green Day.

Right, time to get that day off, should be easy with no Glastonbury next year. All in favour of Beans on Toast on right before Frank say aye.

Fantastic news.

I've been to lots of arena shows, never enjoyed one, but I'm looking forward to being shown how it should be done :)

Congratulations Frank. Can't wait to see who the other artists will be.

On 4th July 1985, Bruce opened with an acoustic 'Independence Day' before bringing on the band for 'Born In the USA' - How I wish I'd been at that show.

Anyway, any chance you'll stroll out with an acoustic guitar & play a quiet tune to open, before rocking the roof off?

Amy worked in a bar in Exeter, Springsteen came clear in my headphones - Frank, did you write these lyrics for me?

Didn't Foo Fighters once do one where there was a walkway all the way through the crowd with another stage at the other end of the venue?

Do that.

Even though I will never be able to go to this concert (Damn being an American...) these guys definitely deserve the recognition. Crazy Arm would be awesome too.

what a nasty bunch of twats ... always amazes me how people can be so negative - i generally think its jealousy and the fact that someone has acheived so much make them feel worthless.

it will be amazing hearing 12500 people singing along to ft songs ... especially if there is that walk way i talked of ;)
