I'd say that £50 is about the going rate for bands of the Manics size and reputation. Tickets for Suede's coming tour are pretty much the same price and I'd put them in the same bracket, whereas Supergrass (who I'd put down as being slightly lower level) are £40.

It's one of the sad facts of life, but for bands of the nineties the majority of their fanbase are probably around the forty years old age, which promoters realise and adjust their prices according to what they perceive their disposable income as being.

Yes, probably it is about right on reflection. I really fancy seeing Suede playing Coming Up but I’ve probably got a marathon the next day and they aren’t really compatible..

Piece Hall is 7,500 capacity apparently so it’s half arena sized and probably about top weight of what they could draw nowadays if the last (ill advised) arena tour is anything to go by.

Looks like a nice venue. It’s going to be sunny, right?
