Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

I’ve just talked to my sister in Italy. They are all confined to their apartments. You’re not allowed to go for a walk unless you apply for permission. Knowing the British mindset, I think there would be absolutely no way the British people would go along with something like that. Heck, I wouldn’t, ...

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

It really bugs me that so many are saying that masks are ineffective - purely on the basis that virus particles are so small - when research has shown they increase protection five-fold (because particles travel in large water droplets). I just read in Hong Kong just about everyone has been wearing...

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

I see Madonna has just cancelled the last two dates of her tour, on police orders. To be fair, I think at this point she was looking for any reason to cancel the rest of that tour that didn't put all the blame on herself. Yes, that’s the impression I get. She probably wants to get herself fit for P...

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

Waste of time buying masks - in fact it may increase your risk - google it. Yeah, I read an article that said it’s a waste of time wearing a mask because they’re ineffective. And then went on to say that you shouldn’t stockpile masks because it will stop the essential medical people from wearing th...

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

Oh blow. I just bought a ticket (fairly reasonably priced) but I forgot all about the virus. I don’t fancy sitting in a crowd for three hours.

Re: Neil Tennant in conversation, Saturday 5 October 2019, RNCM Theatre

I bought a ticket for this and was looking forward to it. Unfortunately, I just got back from Italy and I’m exhausted and skint, and the cost of rail travel is getting crazy (£130 single from Gatwick back to Swansea). Factoring in the price of a hotel in Manchester as well, too much. So if anyone de...

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

I'm seen them so many times. I dunno this time. If there was going to be something really different, OK. But if it's just more banging lasers, I think I'll pass this one. In the old days, it was always something radically different each time. I’m going to Neil’s talk in Manchester. Hopefully no bang...

Cheers for those mate

Any revelations about the upcoming album?
Hi, he said the next album would be Berlin-style (which I think we know), but there will be some German language on it.

Re: Neil talks about Pop etc - Royal Academy of Arts

Strewth, I can’t remember. My brain’s going. I’ll try ... Neil hated Go West when Chris first played the record, and was sure they’d never release it, so he didn’t even bother writing down the lyrics (which is why there are apparently some mistakes in their recorded version). Neil hasn’t got a clue ...

Re: Neil talks about Pop etc - Royal Academy of Arts

I just got back from this. It was excellent. Neil was forthcoming and very funny. The interviewer from BBC radio was a class act. Really good night out. Sorry, I can’t remember a thing that was said, but there were many revealing titbits. I’d much rather do something like this than go to a gig, to b...

How did you get a ticket?
The RA website. Yeah, I know it's annoying the tickets didn't go on sale until 10:15 (not 10:00), and then sold out.
