  2. Well,if i may say..FF, are entertaining live..White lies(Fiction records)got good write up everywhere here in the UK(their album came out yesterday),Crystal Castles are a very good act live and Justice are the "new-ish" Daft Punk(enough said)....Great line up me thinks...the odd one out in terms of new music is our favourite band...but still, that's what we'll be there for won't we???...I would imagine The Cure on stage at 10pm ...10.15(on a thursday night)latest.... having said that there's lots of restaurants/bars at the venue for you to kill time should you not want to see the above mentionned acts...

  3. Ooh that's good.

    DBC: Let's hope the Cure are on as early as poss. I'm travelling up by train and I don't want to get stranded (my brother spent the night at Gatwick airport after the Wembley show!).

    Anyone else had problems with their tickets? My bro paid for ours ages ago and they still haven't turned up.

  9. yeah i forgot about Foals...another good reason to go IMO....I wonder how much input(if any) the band had with the line up..

  10. I freakin knew it!!!

    I God damn hate those indie acts as they attract a terrible crowd. You're going to get a shit load of people turning up to see FF and not giving a flying fuck about The Cure. I can guarantee you are going to see people leaving after those dross idiots have finished.

    franz ferdinand
    crystal castles
    white lies

  14. Well you can count me as loving Indie acts and new music and am THERE for the Cure. FF is a fun band live.

  15. Thing is, I should love FF. I am in their target age group and plenty of my friends like them, but to me they are missing one essential thing...TALENT!!

  16. white lies are indeed a good band

    crystal castles sound alright i guess... they are kind of techno-ey sounding haha

    http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewProfile&friendID=30627193


    and everyone knows franz ferdinand... in my opinion FF is awesome. im not digging crystal castle too much but white lies are awesome!

  23. too clever, Craig. I've never worked out how to do that.

  24. Thank you Craig and deadboycraved for the links :).
    I would have thought the O2 may have its own travelodge facility or something, its bloody annoying that it doesn't.
    I will hopefully find somewhere now though :).

  25. Cheers for that, Dead Boy Craved (and Craig for the link). I have to work the next day though, so I'm going to have to try and get home if I can!

  26. I think this is all very exciting!

  27. Kate - you are right - it is EXCITING!

    Only 29 sleeps until I fly to London.

    For those playing at home, it is also:
    Only 30 sleeps until I meet Rev IRL
    Only 17 more working days
    Only 34 sleeps until I meet the other COF peeps heading to London
    AND, MOST IMPORTANTLY
    Only 35 sleeps until I see the Cure again!!!!
