Clever one, Rockula.

I was plotting (more like fantasizing) how I might get myself from the States to some of The Stranglers' gigs in France this November when I noticed that Simple Minds have concerts not too far away near the same dates. Could the timing have them together? I'd enjoy that double bill... but I want a vote in who opens for whom.

Obviously the stranglers will be the support band & open for simple minds. Nobody has promised you a miracle

Yes it was when Bucks Fizz reformed but Spandau Ballet got the gig in the end.

Damn I was going to suggest Madonna. I once met her tour manager (friend of a friend). Seemed a decent chap. Mates with Simon Cowell though.....

Hold up! Don't tell me they will be the opening act for Clarkson Hammond and May! I would love to see Clarkson pick a fight with JJ.
