Hmmm, I reckon I've been banned from that forum many, many times.... But i ain't a woman.....

Now if you want to talk gossip..... well..... What can i say!

As for bands, well that ian bloke was in some dodgy northern band wasn't he?

The manchester sound in the 90s and all that - have they never been to london!

Most people would've heard of the headline acts, Echo & The Bunnymen being probably the best of the 3. Other acts to enjoy would be:- Doves (who are AMAZING live!), The Courteeners, Futureheads, The Automatic, Super Furry Animals and Ocean Colour Scene are OK live. If you like more Pop Gabriella Cilmi and Alphabeat are fun. Ladytron are also worth a look if you like 80's sounding stuff!!

As for Ian Brown.... What a legend... I'm there!!

Is anyone going to the Killers concert? Does anyone know if there are still tickets available? I'm coming out in 2 weeks, but don't want to buy a ticket before a actually arrive, and I've found some people to go with... concerts just aren't them same on your own!

Some Other Events
'Rat Pack Party' an old-pop-Jazz show featuring songs that Frank Sinatra and pals made famous is on the Madinat Theatre now and until 10 October. The show got OK reviews when it was on in London. See madinattheatre dot com for details of that and other October shows, including Russian theatre and a dance company from Scotland. Tickets CAN be bought on this website, by the way, despite their statement to the contrary. Just go to 'Quick Buy' on the right of the screen.
You'll get details of the comedy nights if you go to TimeOut tickets.

PS - moderator - I tried to give this a fresh subtitle, to separate it from the rock concert discussion above, but every time I clicked reply, I got told I wasn't logged in any more. Logged in about 6 times before giving up on that approach.

An F1 related party but not those acts; not with what they are being paid to perform at the Grand Prix. They are being paid millions of Dirhams to come out so will no tbe doing free concerts. That's not how it happens here.

mmm this is the offical web site... check it Beats on the Beach Think Flash
I checked it out, it's not the main acts... but the GREATEST news is (drum roll please!) Freshly Ground is playing! They are a really fantastic South African group. Anyone who wants to go please let me know! I would love to join you and introduce you to some true talent.

I does seem to be a free event on the beach... will have to organize when I arrive. I haven't seen them live yet (sat for a whole day in drizzly cape town weather once, and then faded before they played :( )

Freshlyground is a South African Afro-fusion band that was formed in Cape Town in 2002. The band members are from South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Stylistically, Freshlyground incorporates elements of traditional South African music (such as kwela and African folk), blues and jazz, as well as features of indie rock. The lead singer is Zolani Mahola whose distinctive voice contributes much to the band's unique sound.
