A band of this size playing venues that large? no way they're the sole agents for tickets.

ticketline would implode with even 10% of the traffic generated if it was the sole ticket seller, which it won't be I'm sure/

rumours posted on that forum:

Glasgow
Sunderland
Manchester
Coventry
Wembley
Wembley
Glastonbury

if that's the case then hopefully tickets are decently priced for all of them (discounting glasto as that's its own entity)

probably see, TM, ticketline and maybe even stargreen for the wembley dates, could even use AXS now as well. Been looking in to the australian tour and they stagger the on sale times for the venue, why on earth do we not do that here?

If the rumour is correct and they do Coventry, it'll be interesting to see if they do do the kick start thing

i would lean towards it not happening, but who knows.

anyway with that list i've calculated theres 400kish tickets maximum to be sold (probably a bit under - say 380k). which is ridiculous. unless some parts of the stadium are closed

No irish date on that list either - I'd take it with a pinch of salt because headliners don't announce themselves for Glastonbury either.

with glasto they could self confirm, but then it wouldn't get announced until april anyway so that's irrelevant.

and indeed, huge pinch of salt as really don't think they'd do 6 stadium dates - especially with that list not showing one in wales.

and probably an irish date would be on the list (could be announced seperately?), just that what was posted

oh and edit:

they would play murrayfield in scotland right? so that would be edinburgh not glasgow.

rubbish list
could see this as being plausible:

Edinburgh
Manchester
Cardiff
London (maybe twice).
Dublin.

I think the list could be accurate, but you're right that glastonbury headliners usually keep the secret until michael and emily reveal it later. Usually you can tell but it is speculation until they confirm it, like dolly this year had a perfect sized gap in her tour for it. Foo's don't seem like the sort of band that would blab about playing there if they were told not to. It's fitting for them to play there now though with their current running around to places with history

I can be a non-noob and moan about where they're not playing if you like But yeah. Same old. People don't realise they have more than 50,000 fans.

I would still love it if they played Cardiff, but I never expect it any more as we get left out of so many bands' 'UK' tours. Not making the trek to Manc for that gig, but I'd aim for a Coventry.

I managed to see them years ago as a "support" to oasis at the millenium stadium, it was December and freezing but that was one hell of a day out, a nice stadium you've got there, it's a shame more bands don't play it

I totally agree the stadium is a great venue. I saw Bruce Springsteen last summer such a great gig!
