Everyone down south was stopped in their tracks around the Hatfield show, not us northeners though Wink

I had to drive the last 30 minutes in a blizzard with no windscreen wipers as the convinently decided to pack up, it was horrific. Even worse if I had to stop as all the snow settled on the windscreen!

I would be up for doing a few dates of the next tour probably. If there is a date in Norwich (which there usually is) wouldn't mind doing a few leading up to/after that, wouldn' mind driving if people needed a ride and were willing to chip in on diesel.



Is there actually anyone on here from around my way?

If this was a serious thought, you could get a van for like £50 + petrol per day?

Its being looked at Joe...ther are people up for it. I am old enough and have had a licence long enough to drive a minubus, problem is Imgenerally not sober enough on tour to drive.

If anyone wanted to do 10 dates, drink and use publc transport, your going to need £1000. A bus with 7 or 8 people in it would work but a hotel each night would be too.

Do you have to be 21 to drive a rented people carrier van? as it would be unfair one person do all the driving.

Pretty sure you have to be 21 to hire a car, so would think it would be the same or older for a van/minibus.

Tell me about it, I've done it twice. Fuck knows how much £££ i've clocked up.


Hobbsy, wonder if you remember Southampton 08, part way through the aftershow i think, i rejoiced in the street at being paid that night at like 1am so i could get on itttt. that pay lasted 2 days Crying or Very sad
me and coops went that secret kerrang halloween party in London 2 days later and cried at it costing like £4-5 for a can cause we had no cash, so went to costcutter to buy cheaper booze, bumped into keith trying to tap into our travelodges wifi and he gave us a bottle of JD. saved our asses.

i'm rambling... ahhhh tour memories.

I think its 23 actually? Or you need 3 years experience or something?
Added bonus with a minibus/van is that some people could kip in it each night? 5 people could have a fairly decent night sleep in a minibus

I think it is over 21, when I moved house my housemate had to hire the van as he was 22 and I was 21. And like you say, you must have passed you're test for 3 years.

Ah okay, I'm sure it wasn't the same as a bog standard license.
Either way, I'm up for this. Sounds great. Does anyone know any details of the tour? I know the bands and that its in October, but not dates.

If people are thinking of cheap ways to follow a tour, try camping?! I just chucked my tent in the cloak room for the xmas gig.
I'm starting teaching so just hoping some of this tour falls over half term then i shud b able to follow it round a bit.
That tour bus sounds like an awesome idea. Good luck if anyone tries it out!

You camped after the xmas gig? Got balls if you did in that weather.

We can just rent a hotel room between us, will cost us a few quid each and just have to sneak in and can easily get 10-15 people in one room on the floor.

I never said it was announced, but the tour has been booked with supports already, for October.

If you can't tell us then can you at least tell us are the supports good or bad? Wink

My best guess would be True Tiger in some way/shape/form, LGB/Qemists and a bit of a bigger band

This is a fun game, we may have to start a new thread for guessing which bands are supporting and people who know saying whether we're hot or cold haha
