I actually knew New Model Army through my cousin and back in the day when I dabbled in promotions nearly got them to do a gig in Bangor supported by the lovely Joolz his partner.

Good news that the lads will be up and about,so to speak, next year, hopefully as John R says above this will be the first announcement of many.

Digger will be delighted with the news !

I've been checking out where this place is and it's a small place out in the sticks somewhere north of Stuttgart which is probably not too easy to get to with public transport(I've never learned to drive and probably just as well for the rest of the world)but I have plenty of time to get more info.If I can make it I will,Oysterband and Fairport also playing the same day.

I know it's early days but would anyone be interested in pooling costs for car hire from Frankfurt to yon gig? ShiteAir fly from Dublin to Frankfurt and I think a 2 hour drive will take one to the gig site. Returns flights seem to be less than 100 euro.

For Cropredy myself, Stephen, Hugh and eh..........someone else joined forces.

Brendan, that is a great idea ! Thank you for suggesting the plan.

Unfortunately I couldn't go for it. I couldn't really justify the overall costs plus Her Nibs and I tend to be in Norn Iron at some point during July.

I am sure you will get a gang together...maybe Digger could also join up with you ?

Best to all, John R.

Wouldnt be practical for me to go all the way to Frankfurt first as Frankfurt is further north than the venue for the festival.

Was checking train prices today and from what I can see it costs more there and back by train than it did to fly to Dublin return for the concerts last year,crazy or what?It's early days yet but getting time off work could also be a problem,would be better if they played on a Saturday.

I'm also not a fan of open air festivals to be honest.

AFAIK they are playing both Friday and Saturday with a mystery venue for Sunday on the cards.

Digger, There ya go playing all 3 days hopefully you can get to see them I remember Barry telling me they loved playing there. Wished they could somehow miraculously get over this part of the world the man above knows there are many many fans here waiting. The new job is going to be challenging but hopefully also rewarding. Much to learn had to put the book down will be off 9 days starting Dec. 23 will be reading it over a few Jameson's and a fire going. Don glad the weather has calmed for ya Ill never whine again ha. Cheers Mick

Like Digger, I also would be reluctant to attend a 'festival'.. now that I think of it ! In fact Cropredy would be the only one that I would contemplate going to.

I hope that if there is a return to action over here it is not a round of summer festivals....We want a proper adult concert hall tour !

However....three nights? Wow!!!

Insider....Daragh gave us a tease and now one from you ! Come on, come on , come on !!! We won't tell.....I will phone Mrs Taff and ask her to get him to sit on his hands for a fortnight !!!!!

Best to all, John R.

There are number of folk who I need to write to....I think I will have to get busy over the next few days!!!!

Brendan,
Barry mentioned playing Germany in one (or more) of the pre Xmas radio reviews. I reckon it's on. I don't see anything formal.
I'm scoping out a family holiday in July to stay with my nephew in Stuttgart. I'm working on the assumption that Horslips will play Bad Rappenau-Bonfeld but the family won't mind if we do something else.

In terms of booking flights, my experience says that the lowest prices become available about 10 weeks before the trip.
