Title: Friday headliner 2019
Post by: Simon Withers on September 26, 2018, 09:18:55 AM
No what about the Friday headliner?

I would love to see Big Big Train headline the Friday night.

Me too - just discovered them recently, and they'd be great!

A decent Saturday late afternoon slot maybe but not headliners IMHO

No , Big Big Train would be an ideal headliner on Friday.

Crossover appeal, energy, enthusiasm and great musicians.

Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott, the last king of pop

I'm guessing that they would be right at the edge of the budget. Maybe £100K+.

Really?!  Jesus, the last time I saw Heaton live was in a pub.  It wasn't that long ago...

Their gig at Sheffield is sold out but tickets were Stg33, less than RT!

They sold out the Albert Hall in under an hour. Again reasonable ticket prices. (£35ish)

I was thinking they might be in the price range and apparently sell loads of tickets.

They would be brilliant as the Friday headliner.

That's a lot more than James Taylor isn't it?

I know how much James Taylor would have wanted about 15 years ago. Less than that, but not a lot.

Fantastic option,a massive back catalogue. Saw them at Cannock Chase in the summer and got tickets for Sheffield in November. Love em.

I'm not sure they'd be right for a Cropredy crowd. Erudite for sure, and melodic, but so were Divine Comedy...

More singalong pieces than Divine Comedy ( whom I actually loved, anyway).

Their current tour is 'The Last King of Pop' (look on Amazon)

All the hits from Housemartins, Beautiful South and their duo stuff. Thirty something straight hits.

Steve Hackett for a return visit? Thoroughly enjoyable last time, and he definitely "got" Cropredy.

I'd be happy for Steve with his brilliant band to return every year. I thought they were stunning. He's touring "Selling England By the Pound" and "Spectral Mornings" next year so he could easily make a little diversion to Oxford....  ;D

After last night's concert (see Recent gigs thread), I would be heartily behind this suggestion!

Iíd love to see They Might Be Giants on that stage - they played Edinburgh a few weeks ago, and were superb.

Well I would like to see them. They would strengthen the bill in general, but would they sell extra tickets?
