Also, what were you thinking? I know the price put many people off, and I also know that if we hadn't lucked out and gotten some of the best seats in the house I'd be really pissed off about the gig instead of singing its praises, but really yellie, you should have known better!
It was, incidentally, the quietest gig I've ever been at. And that definitely was a good thing.
Now, here's hoping Tom Waits provides as much bang per buck next month... (€137 per ticket - nearly $200. How much did any of you Mericans have to pay for a TW ticket?)
Ha, I thought as much. I seem to recall you voicing your opinion about poor Damien a few times! But yeah, I think you're right; the price was just a little too high for me. I mean, I was reluctant about paying €70 for Radiohead, and I had been waiting to see them live for years
As for Tom Waits... I think I had a stroke when I heard how much it would be. I'm well aware he's a god, but c'mon! It's ridiculous.

*clicks on link* Whoa, Jay Z
is playing Glastonbury?? That's uh... unexpected.
Oh man, the "Other Stage" looks amazing! Granted, the only two names I saw were We Are Scientists and Ben Folds. Although, now that I see the Wombats, Scouting For Girls and Mark Ronson, I'm beginning to not like the Other Stage quite as much.
