They are their own worst enemy. This is madness. Absolute madness. Chris Moyles does not sell out stadiums and nor do tribute acts.

I did think you might say that!

You might be right, but I'd hope and expect the club have a good idea of what an event like this might sell and the break even point isn't 10,000 or anything silly like that. Generally James Watts seems to know what he's doing on the commercial side, so we'll see I guess. Seems like they've gone cheap and cheerful to test the waters and let's hope it does okay.

I donít think theyíre trying to sell out the stadium though in all honesty, itís more of a party on the pitch vibe.
Maybe Iím in the minority but I donít hate this at all, theyíre trying something different.

Just a quick thought. Arenít those dates the Play Offs Weekend?

Not unless we magically get promoted 2 leagues to the Championship.

There are still significant costs associated with that sort of event in a stadium.

The Party on the Pitch was an EFL funded event I believe... One of the best days I've had as a Town fan. Will never forget Paolo and Toploader.

A fucking DJ night?

Are we sure they don't think they were booking the MECA?

Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

looks good to me. the tribute acts one can be successful (see "fake festival").

90s music could bit good.

I don't know if it'll be successful, but I'll certainly be keeping an eye with a view to going.

I did not think I'd be writing that!

Also, the way Iím reading it, it isnít just going to be Chris Moyles on the Saturday, there will be other acts too.
