My eyesight must be going, despite quoting it I totally didn't see the Glastonbury part of your message.

I mean I can't deny that happened, but patterns are there to be broken I guess. There would be a LOT of unhappy Foo fans if the only gigs in the London area next year is Reading Festival, when in the past they've done 2 nights at Wembley. Sure there is the 02 show, but that is only 20,000.

My theory is that they will potentially play Wembley stadium next september - this weekend but next year - as Reading will have already sold out by time they announce that gig - so Reading contracts won't be broken...Reading also means Leeds - which means they could do Scotland and Wales and Ireland still..

Maybe, it'll be a bit late though. British weather and all, I'm sure they would prefer June/July. Would a Reading/Leeds payday really be better than their own gigs? I've no idea what fee headline bands are commanding these days.

There's usually a Wembley stadium concert and a Hyde Park concert this weekend every year...Last year Wembley had Billy Joel...

Don't forget Reading signed Eminem this year - and they sell out every year - they can pretty much afford anyone...

I agree, I'd much rather they did Wembley or the MK Bowl or something similar again then just festival dates.

Fair enough, but ever since 2006 FF have done the big UK shows in June or July, the exception being 2015 when he broke his leg and they had to add the last minute MK shows.

Well I guess in the end all we can do is wait and see.

Been to every NZ gig except Galatos in 03 when I was out of the country and the Town Hall Chch benefit when couldn't get away from work. Shame there is only one this time round.

Maybe we will finally get that Hall repeat though - must be hard to crash a truck between Mt Smart and the CBD surely

I hope they play a secret gig somewhere else on the Friday night, with the Town Hall already being booked for The Stranglers that night, rather than playing a gig on the Sunday night, which I'd need to book extra accommodation for.

The question is, where would it be?
