    Out of interest what size venues did All Saints play to on the last tour?

    I mean, let’s not forget Rick Astley only had 2 hit albums 30 YEARS AGO. :rolleyes:

    I think they did the Academy circuit. Most of those are larger than theatres but smaller than arenas, I believe.

    This is really VERY VERY good - I'm enjoying it hugely. The songs are gorgeous and the production is just perfect. Orbit may have nothing new in the tank, but BOY, does it work here. I hope the girls don't give a fuck about the SALES as that is surely the true All Saints way (and they all - bar MEL - must be loaded anyway).

    Top tracks today:

    - Who Do You Love
    - After All
    - I Would
    - Testament In Motion

    Not wanting to come over all @Halli :D, but Queen Nat's voice is a think of absolute WONDER. I'd kill for an Everything's Eventual II :disco:

    It's just over half the number she's playing to (though I agree that depends on if she sells out) plus there's also that Radio 2 thing she's headlining.

    We should probably take this to the Kylie forum.

    Rickrolling was a truly global phenomenon however.

    I rather imagine both Kylie and ver Saints were less in need of topping up the pension fund than old Rick, who was presumably on a MONSTROUS PWL deal which delivered him diddly squat during his hey day.

    I know there are several academies dotted around the country but is an "academy" even a proper category?

    I'd have thought the next level up from theatres was concert halls (such as Hammersmith Apollo and the one in Bournemouth whose name I forget).

    Probably not a category as such. But considering acts who appear at one often do a lot of them and sometimes only them I'd say they are pretty distinct.

    Is the Bournemouth venue the one now known as Windsor Hall? That is the same venue as the one I knew as Bournemouth Arena isn't it? I thought it was just a smaller arena, like Cardiff. Which probably have a capacity more like Hammersmith Apollo, and certainly a lot less than the O2.

    Are we talking Kylie in Bournemouth? That's the BIC- which is actually a pretty decent sized arena...

    Actually you're right. Windsor Hall is an arena. The name threw me.

    The Windsor Hall is IN the BIC, isn't it? And seems to have a capacity of 4100.

    Oh I don't know. It must be the main hall of the BIC then...

    Looking at pictures on the net now, I'd go back on what I just said and say it's a large concert hall. The equivalent in London is surely the Apollo?

    That must make it one of the smallest arenas (if not the smallest) in the country I'd have thought. Cardiff is about 5k, I believe.

    I think the last time I saw a concert at Bournemouth was kd lang. To this day I've never seen so many women jumping up, cheering and crying throughout a set.

    I'm geeking out reading about concert venues in London.

    Poor Earls Court :( (yes I know the acoustics were a bit crap but still). Not so poor London Arena (though I saw Kylie there in 1990).

    Rick Astley was on some tv programme the other day, and was asked how it felt to be a millionaire at 21? He said he had so much money he had no clue what to do with it, and never expected to be a millionaire so young.

    Wasn’t Rick Astley one of the few SAW acts to get a writing credit on his early hits? Presumably he could live comfortably off Never Gonna Give You Up alone...

    That first album was globally huge as well. Didn't it sell in excess of 10m?

    I imagine he did probably have a crap deal, but even so he would have made a fortune out of it.

    So it ended #15 which is rather disappointing

    The promotion has been pretty scarce this time round. I think as long as they get festival slots and their own tour they are pretty happy.

    Even the one performance of 'LLF' this week was a pre-record on This morning and cut off half way through, didn't even get to Queen Nats bit which would have secured another 7 or so streams at least

    Their set at R2 live (with Kylie) was GOOD but most people were like WTF when it was just 5 songs....

    this is all I can find from YT

    They have recorded Girls On Film for Trevor Horn's recently announced (but not released until next year) 'Trevor Horn Reimagines The 80s' album.

    Unfortunately they are going with Robbie Williams's cover of 'Everybody Rules The World' on radio at least.

    Yeah I actually pretty gutted I didn't bother with the London date this time. I passed as I went to the Hyde Park thingy thinking they would do a fuller setlist but only did 5 songs

    I got a ticket for tomorrow now. Very excited they are at least doing part of All Hooked Up. They hate it so it’s odd that now they are, but I guess they need to mix it up as the two years or so have been very similar setlists.

    First time in a long time no War of Nerves

    The inclusion of One Woman Man is great though, that song is everything

    Well that was tremendous as per normal.

    The minute of All Hooked Up though - Nic seemed okay but the other three had faces of absolute thunder :D

    Mel specifically prefaced All Hooked Up by saying they were doing a medley of their favourites from the first two albums - WHY would she lie? :D

    Also Nat spent most of that minute groping Shaznay's ass.
