I was told to hold these dates clear as someone 'amazing' was coming. Can't say I agree with their definition of amazing.

Oh well, more false hope curtsey of the UAE.

I actually saw the Proclaimers when they played the Abu Dhabi Club car park in around 2002. A massive turn out of about 150 jocks...

What is it with people who try to sound like music aficionados when they go on about how bands used to be good but aren't now? Pretentious twaddle. "Oh, I remember them when NOBODY knew them...playing sweaty clubs to a handful of fans...blah, blah, blah!"

Still, this generic statement is actually true about Oasis.

And Simple Minds.

And Auto, I thought the Killers woud be far too mainstream for you!
