Come­back trail gets con­gested

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Re­union fever is very much in the air at present. This week saw hoary, over-rated, dull rock di­nosaurs Led Zep­pelin re­duce grown men to tears when they per­formed in Lon­don.

Given the fact that more than 20 mil­lion al­legedly en­tered a lot­tery for tick­ets for this show and that some venues are be­lieved to be on hold for next sum­mer, a full Led Zep tour can be ex­pected in 2008.

Tick­ets for My Bloody Valen­tine’s come­back shows next sum­mer are also in de­mand and all seven UK shows next June and July are sold out. Spec­u­la­tion is also rife about pos­si­ble fes­ti­val dates.

The best news of all, though, is That Petrol Emo­tion have be­came the latest band to suc­cumb to re­union fever.

The band, fea­tur­ing var­i­ous Un­der­tones and Yank singer Steve Mack, an­nounced on their web­site that they’re plan­ning a 2008 tour, with Ir­ish dates for April or May.
