as a European, I'll be seeing them on the continent -

no need for 'kilos' of heavy-weight 'pounds' in my pocket; nor for paying hefty roaming costs; nor for endless identity check queues at ports & stations etc.

It's been fun while it lasted; but "the hour is getting late "... smoking smiley

BST is a lot of fun but my trip across the pond is for Clapton at Royal Albert Hall this year. Neil would be great, Bob I do not need to see again.

Over £300 to be anywhere near the front.
Will pick up a general admission ticket outside on the night for around £30 and work some magic.

Should be a great show.

Apparently Neil Young is considering pulling out of this as he’s not at all happy about the organisers announcing him without his knowledge and the fact that the festival is sponsored by Barclays Bank.

From Neil Young Archives::



You. . . . . . . who were taken by surprise waking up to the BOB DYLAN / NEIL YOUNG - HYDE PARK CONCERT announcement posted on every outlet except NYA, might wonder why it was not on NYA. . . .and you should. We’re sorry.

Like you, I had no idea the announcement was coming that day…

I was still finessing the art for the poster and trying to make sure that all the details of the show were agreeable to me. Then, suddenly, someone jumped the gun. The tickets were put on sale and the announcement was made, all without my knowledge.

We promised you that you would learn first at NYA about all of my activities and have first access to pre-sale tickets. You didn’t.
I was angry.

At NYA, our subscribers, excited to order their pre-sale tickets, were frustrated and dismayed to find tickets were not available.

‘Letters to the Editor’ began arriving. Some folks felt confused, resentful, even angry, left dumbfounded or simply curious.

The revelations kept coming.

I’m a vampire baby
-suckin’ blood from the Earth

-In addition, I learned that the show had a sponsor, ‘Barclays Bank’, a fossil fuel funding entity.

That doesn’t work for me. I believe in Science. I worry about the Climate Crisis and am deeply concerned about its massive global ramifications and my beautiful grandchildren’s future.



I ain’t singin’ for Pepsi;
Don’t sing for Coke.
I won’t sing for nobody
makes me feel like a joke. . . .

There’s no doubt about it - Its been a massive @#$%& up!

Subsequently, the NYA team has had many ‘Come to Jesus’ meetings.

At the moment, we are trying to rectify the situation and will soon update you on the status of the Hyde Park show. We have been talking about requiring a different sponsor as one option.

We are quite confident that nothing like this will ever happen again. We’re sorry for this situation - it is - and shall remain an anomaly.

All of us here at NYA are continuing to work to provide you with the best, no bullshit, immersive quality experience, exactly what you deserve, without compromising our integrity.
It’s on the line.

________________________________________________________________________________
And:


To Neil and Neil Young
Archives subscribers:

12-7-18

We take great pride in being the guardian of Neil’s music for over 50 years.

And equal pride in Neil Young Archives, something we believe is a very important work. To our subscribers, we made a promise that they would be the first ones advised of any shows and the first to be able to buy tickets.

To say we fell short of our obligations on the announcement and pre-sales for the Hyde Park show is an understatement and we disappointed a lot of people. We lost focus and the entire team at Lookout Management apologizes for promises not kept to our subscribers.

We have tried to rectify this as best we can by making sure that tickets are available for Neil Young Archives subscribers. I personally really must apologize for this lapse because working as the custodian of Neil Young Archives is very serious to me. Neil’s life’s work has been mine as well. We will make every effort to ensure that this doesn’t happen again.

Respectfully,
Elliot Roberts

_____________________________________________________________________

And from Thrashers Wheat:


We here at Thrasher's Wheat are totally down with Neil on getting righteous about the rampant unethical promoters. In fact, we're totally down with everyone also getting down on corruption and speakin' out.

Neil has been trying to be as upfront as he can with the NYA subscriptions. So, as soon as the site finally launches and ... BOOM. What might have been the biggest pre-sale the site will possibly ever see again suddenly goes out the window. The concert of a lifetime for both Bob and Neil's entire respective careers and yet the rollout is so totally f-'ed up by the greedy hands.

Respect, trust, full disclosure, transparency are what matters and Neil's taking the stand. Taking the rap.

So who else is gonna standup?

As a Briton, I’ll be attending gigs in the United Kingdom.

I enjoyed seeing the Stones in Munich, some fifteen-or-so years ago. It was fun while it lasted, but times marches on. See ya, Europe winking smiley

I think it'll still be there. I don't think we're about to be towed out into the middle of the Atlantic eye rolling smiley

I plan to continue visiting as much as I do now regardless.

Neil Young must of been about to pull out of this show as Barclays have now been forced to pull out from sponsoring this particular show at the festival.

I think it's to do with power........The Mega corporations and banks have the power to change things (or at least start to change things things that are screwing nature so badly) ........Neil Young or you or I don't......We can make our little moves but until these mega entities start producing clean transport on mass we're stuck with it...........

All the 'little' person can do is be as conscientious as possible in our own dealings........

Maybe for Neil that means threatening to boycott an event where a destructive 'mega' is present................

That was my first thought exactly. Those who decry the use of fossil fuels seem to utilize them as much as anyone else. I’m all for developing other forms of energy and fuels. But to target one particular bank? Anyway, I hope NY sorts this out. It could be a very good show.
