Song of the Day: The Killers - Smile Like You Mean It
Fuck me. Glastonbury tickets went on sale at 9am today.. I was primed and ready..
Had a full on military style operation complete with multiple contingency plans.. much to Stuart's consternation! I have lost loads of sleep in the last 2 weeks, smoking like a fiend, and hopped up on caffeine...
And fuck me if I didn't get tickets.
9.07am I was in, got mine & Stu's tickets, bit more work and got Jason's ticket also.. I'm going to the world's best festival with my two favourite guys. Jesus, I'm flummoxed.
112,000 tickets sold out in 3 hours. You can read all about it here.. confirmed to be playing are The White Stripes (get in!), Coldplay (still rumored but will confirm soon), The Killers (oh thank you God!), Bloc Party, Embrace, Interpol.. and Kylie (ahem). Full line up/rumors/rampant bullshit can be found here. With only a 25% chance of success, I say thank you to whichever deity granted my prayers. For the second time in my life I'm going to where I felt most at home and I couldn't be happier.
