This old bugger saw them at the Tourhout festival in Belgium in 1989. If anyone's interested the lineup that day was, in no particular order, Texas, Tanita Tikaram (who got bottled off stage quite rightly), REM, Pixies, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Elvis Costello, Joe Jackson and Lou Reed. There may have been others but as I was so drunk I missed Lou Reed, you will forgive me if my memory is a little hazy. Bloody good day though. :rockon:

Don't complain about the price yet...another three major live acts will be supporting. To be announced soon. But I bet you can all guess them.


If it was part of the overall package - i.e. a co - headliner or something I'd be interested. But to me it's 35 to see the Pixies.

I can safely say it'll be one gig where the headliners will be the best band that plays that day. Unless Husker Du have reformed to play at this event.....................
