- Kasabian summer solstice. Anyone else going?
“Interesting” support for sure! Zane is quality as a warm up man.Posted 3 years ago
Where’s the best pubs in town these days. We’ll be coming in via train and staying at the ibis. 18 years nearly since I was last out in Leicester in the uni days, much changed? 39 steps still going 🙂
Steaming Billy pub next to the train station called the ‘Parcel Yard’ – not bad – big with decent beers….’The Hind’ adjacent is a bit rough and ready.
Further into town there’s ‘The Globe’ on the corner of Silver Street and O’Neills opposite that.Posted 3 years ago
‘The Pub’ is good on New Walk but as that’s close to the gig that will be rammed to I think.
Can’t tell you where I’m going as it shouldn’t be that busy (fingers crossed) but it will be if enough people know about it 😉
‘The Orange Tree’ on High Street is pretty cool with nice beers and a beer garden.
Loads of bars down Braunstone Gate too.
Not sure about 39 Steps, though it was a proper grot hole in years gone by!
Ibis is just behind the train station which is at the bottom of London Rd…Vicky Park is at the top – no more than 10 mins walk. As I said it’s next to The Parcel Yard (should be your first stop) but you’ll pass The Hind, The Lansdowne and The Marquis of Wellington which I forgot about and I’d say was the best of all the London Road boozers but VERY close to the venue….though not as close as the Old Horse which is almost behind where the stage is allegedly going to be!Posted 3 years ago
About 20 of us going from deepest Leicestershire.
More pubs and bars around Clarendon Park / London Road than you can shake a stick at.
Rascal I might see you in the Parcel Yard if you are about?
P.S. Nobody else should even think about going to the Parcel Yard, it will be utterly rubbish, don’t go in there 😛Posted 3 years agoCountZeroMember

I don’t really know much about Kasabian, but I know that Billy Bragg is now just a curmudgeonly self-parody.
He’s just so crushingly predictable nowadays that he really ought to give panto a crack.Posted 3 years ago
Really? He seemed chirpy enough when he played Frome, chatting to us queuing outside before the doors opened, and again afterwards, and went back for Record Store Day, and played outside the store without a PA for around 2000 people, then hung around chatting for ages after that.
But then, I’ve yet to meet an artist after a gig who was anything but cheerful and a pleasure to talk to.
Just woke up. Got four rows from the front with veteran gig goer wife and two newbies. Met loads of nice folk. Was king of the mosh pit for <2 seconds, quickly realised I’m 40 next year but still know I’ll be up the front somewhere this summer. Brilliant day but as usual not enough fuvking toilets!!!Posted 3 years agoskiMember

Omg! Was that the mosh right of the stage? You weren’t the naked bloke were you? 😉Posted 3 years ago
