  1. Strange and intoxicating! I'll tell you in London! [emoji6]
  2. Frohes Neues Jahr - Blwyddyn Newydd Dda - Happy New Year to my fellow farmers! See ya on the road! Gesendet von meinem SM-G925F mit Tapatalk
  3. I was very sad when I read about his passing yesterday. I used to like WHAM! and his solo work in the late 80s and early 90s a lot. I was a teenager then and his cleverly made pop music was omnipresent. He was a very gifted songwriter and a gentle soul. I only learned of his generosity today, he gave so much of his wealth to charity. Rest well, Yog.
  4. - acoustic version of Learning to Fly - Two Men Talkin was better live in Mannheim than it was on the Soundstage recording (okay, both live, but hey...) Gesendet von meinem SM-G925F mit Tapatalk

  6. Yep. The kids aren't old enough and the wife isn't tall enough for the event. I'll get back to you when the time comes. I'm sure we can meet for a cold one in that Summer Garden!
  7. At least I'm getting some ultra-fragrant super special separate toilet facilities at that Hyde Park gig for that kinda money! I call it the "First Flush of Freedom Package"! [emoji23] Gesendet von meinem SM-G925F mit Tapatalk
  8. [emoji23] We both wish!
  9. Good luck to all of you!
  10. You're absolutely right. And I'll quit the "bribery" the minute Tom & the boys stop touring. Promise! Until then, I don't need to swallow or feel bad about anything. I'm just happy to see my favorite band live.
  11. Hey! You should have received a separate code for Hyde Park. It came in a mail from HCC re "London Show at Hyde Park Announced!" and is 6 characters long. This one worked for me.
  12. Okay, after almost 24 hours I'm able to breathe again... - I got a Diamond Circle Ticket (and payed more for admission than I initially wanted - but hey, you get separate toilet facilities! ) - I booked a sleazy hotel room (because, let's face it, anything below 400 quid for 2 nights in London is sleazy) - and I booked a flight (which was a bargain compared to #s 1 and 2) The only other option for me would have been attending the two shows at Red Rocks, but airfare alone would have been what ticket, hotel and flight sum up to. Hyde Park isn't my venue of choice, but it'll sure be a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
  13. What would be the alternative except for low-res DVD?
  14. The only venue that would justify 5000 miles of air travel for me is Red Rocks. Two concert tickets plus airfare from Europe, plus a rental car, plus accommodation plus a ridiculuous amount of beer would come to around 1100$. However, I'm pretty sure this will be another greatest hits tour, it's their 40th anniversary tour after all - playing Wildflowers + its phantom "all the rest" in its entirety doesn't make any sense here. So with a heavy heart I believe -again- I must hope for a concert BluRay that will never come.
