    Years ago now, (early internet days and pre on line digital tickets) when PJ Harvey was just breaking, she was doing a gig in London. I rang the venue at lunchtime a couple of weeks ahead of the show, to check ticket availability was told they had nearly 300 left. I diverted on my way home from work and went to the venue to get a ticket. Sold Out. Someone from her management company had been along that afternoon and bought all the remaining tickets.

    Tour t-shirts might be collectors' items in years to come, mind.

    This is really weird.

    A ‘crowd video’ obviously fake because you can’t even see the band

    And the music is fucking awful so probably best if the venues are empty.

    I think somebody will have lost loads of money now they have been caught out :thumbs:

    Feel sorry for The Exchange. They are a decent venue and let me use some space for free recently.
