SeaSick Steve: Live at Oxegen 2008

    I think fans should boycott these gigs.
    45 euro for an (admittedly great) artist who just a few months ago played crawdaddy for less than half the price!

    To put it into perspective: He’s playing the Royal Albert Hall in London this winter too, and tickets for that are between €20-31.

    I know where i’d rather see him, and it’s not in a tent in the middle of winter..

    I agree with the above comments perhaps if ticket sales are low similar to groove armada/dizzie rascal gig last year it will be moved into the cosy snug surroundings of the tripod! however you are also getting one of the finest live bands in the world supporting him… MMJ are a superb band (especially live) so i prob will fork out the money to see the show..

  • I think Pod Concerts have overstretched themselves with this one. It seems absurdly optimistic that they will sell out a tent at the end of October for what can only be described as a cult artist with limited appeal. It would make more sense with MMJ headlining and Seasick Steve supporting, but even then a 45 euro ticket price is too much. Follwing the cancellation of quite a few festivals this summer I’d say we’ll see a reduction in the amount of these ‘event’ type gigs in the coming year. I don’t think many will miss them – the best place to hear live music is with a solid roof over your head and a bar near-at-hand IMO!
