Don't forget Dave is the king of hype. Often things are smaller than he predicts. So it could be really JT

That's true. I remember before Sonic Highways he said in every interview that they've done something no band has ever done before, and then he went on Letterman and Letteman went like: ''Paul (Shaffer), didn't you have the same idea for an album once?''.

I don't know, in this case I think it's more the press and fans who ran away with it. When you look at what they actually said about the guest, it never sounded more than some random backing vocals to me. In fact Dave literally said, "we found a backup part for this person to sing".

I guess we'll have to wait

Stadium and huge outdoor shows is where they make their money these days in the UK, with their popularity. Sure, they could play 2/3/4 dates at each arena to get the same overall attendances and revenue but if you can make the same money with one night in a stadium, why wouldn't you? Same with Australia, their other huge market, they haven't played arenas in either since 2007/8. They even graduated from arenas in some of their biggest US markets last tour.

They're a BIG band now. Academys and Arena tours in a chilly November or December are a thing of the past.

Well as I say, now we've seen the CD booklet with good clarity, we can see all of the credited guests. JT isn't one of them, so if he's on the record, he's a secret guest without credit. So unless there are two secret guests and Dave only hinted at one and JT just wasn't in the conversation at all, it's him.

Also I'm kinda guessing RS wasn't really meant to reveal it like that.

I don't think there was a particular plan to announce this secret special guest, particularly if it's just backing vocals. Having it brought to the table like this, in one of the biggest music magazines in the world, can do no harm I say.

Pretty much. I got the impression Dave might never have revealed it had there not been so much follow-up attention and speculation. He joked to me that they'd only reveal it if sales stopped.
