Grand final - will it be full?

Just the other day James were headline with Shed 7 one of the supporting acts. Charlatans played in a similar support role in 2019 there. 

I know it's all subjective, but the organisers know what they are doing, and Shed 7 and Charlatans would be nowhere near headlining this festival. 

I know we are off topic somewhat, but it is loosely linked to the GF 😁

Edit: I always do a quick Spotify check:

James - 2.4m monthly listeners

Charlatans - 0.5m monthly listeners

Shed 7 - 0.3m monthly listeners

Fair enough, I stand massively corrected. As a 90s indie kid I’d never have thought that, but the numbers don’t lie.

More importantly, did she support Trin, Fev or Dewsbury?

That's basically just people having Sit Down in their playlists.

I went through this though process last week when watching James and thinking how good a headliner they were for the Grand Final, mainly because of their iconic songs, so id taken a bit of interest in these various bands and their numbers. 

Obviously it's nowhere near an exact science but it's a good indicator.

That's the thing, we don't need new bands with new music at the grand final, the whole point of them is yo help create a party atmosphere so the best band would be one with songs everyone knows, that's why James were perfect, and bands like Madness are ideal.

Mainstream anthems are needed, absolutely. The average person needs to have heard it. 

That could be a modern band with huge hits now - I'd prefer that right now as it helps to modernise us a bit, but if we go old, they have to have genuine anthems, not niche anthems.

Laid? Absolutely nowt to do with rugby league now. 

Yeah, absolute blinder of a track. I'd always wanted to see James so ticked that one off my list last week, they finished with that and the atmosphere was unreal.

Happy to stand corrected, but much of the razzmatazz is still not allowed. That said, there’s still some stuff can continue. 

I’m not sure 100% sure myself, but are there actually any outdoor restrictions still in place? I thought outdoors you can do what you like, vaccinated or not - marquees, beer gardens, music concerts. Whether it’s outside stadia or in a local park, it shouldn’t matter really.

I don't think there are any restrictions. Other sports are doing things, and things are back to normal at other major events.

I believe he was the inspiration for their hit ‘Figaro’. 
“Woh-ho figaro, he’s a Romeo-wo”

I must admit, Shed 7 and James were a bit "retro"...

Wash your mouth out young man… James are quality and modern! 😉

In Karl Fitzpatrick and Kris Radlinski you probably get what you pay for.

I went to school as Karl Fitzpatrick; clearly a late developer off the rugby field!

Cant go wrong with a good sixties artist we had the ZOMBIES and STEVE ELLIS (Love Affair) booked for one of our radio stations summer bashes last year before covid got it cancelled (Neil Diamond maybe a little too expensive and mainly seventies anyway)

I was referring more to the stuff on the pitch, in terms of dancers, flag wavers, mascots etc? I have you right for everything else.

In order of popularity I’d say the charlatans are miles ahead of James or shed 7, with shed 7 slightly ahead of James. 

In your house maybe, not outside it.

Charlatans - 0.5m monthly listeners

Shed 7 - 0.3m monthly listeners

That list correlates with Wikipedia

James: 20.8k page views per month 

Charlatans: 7.5k page views per month 

Shed 7: 4.2k page views per month

 

Prior to looking at any data I’d have had James ahead by a street, primarily as they have the best known songs by some distance.
