Now, today we’re going back till last Thursday today when I went BST at Hyde Park. I managed to snag 4 tickets for BST at Hyde Park for £2.50 and despite seeing Arcade Fire the week before I was super excited about seeing them again. Right now they are up they are with my current favourite bands. I last saw them back at Reading 07 and I remember them being a band that really stuck out in my mind for me. Suburbs is and album you just HAVE to listen to and their newest offering is really on point. In fact, all their stuff is really good, especially Rebellion (Lies) from their first album.

I’ll start off by saying BST is really overpriced. I think the tickets were originally about £60 odd before adding upgrades to VIP and different areas. Apparently the tickets didn’t sell very well and a link was leaked with a bunch of F&F tickets for £2.50 each. I wasn’t sure if it was legit but I thought what the hell and bought them anyway and hoped for the best. I have a feeling a lot of people did that actually because according to people in the know the show didn’t sell very well. Despite this, it was packed out with people (who knows how much they’d paid for them). I don’t think I’d have paid £60 odd to see them, but I think maybe I would for the Libertines but I am seeing them on Sunday anyway!

We had some lovely drinks at the bar which I decided to get errr 4 of. So I ended up with two pint glasses of G&T. We keep it classy here on LLYMLRS. Ahem. Oh well! Was a nice end to a busy day for all of us so it was so relaxing to chill on a park bench and catchup.

So music wise. We didn’t get there till late so missed Wild Beasts and got there as Jake Bugg took the stage. I dislike Jake Bugg, I just don’t like his sound or his look. It’s not my kinda thing. I also really wanted to catch Band of Skulls but I didn’t realise they were playing in a different tent (in fact I didn’t even SEE there was a different tent - apparently it was super crowded anyway and hardly anyone got in). Arcade Fire played a wonderful set of joyful indie rock with a theatrical twist. The crowed were all oohing and ahhhhing to their big songs all the while we had a good old dance. The show wasn’t quite as good as their Southside one, but I think that's more down to stage limitations. It still had their trademark over the top stage show. It was the last night of the tour too so they did look a little tired, but it didn’t really show in the actual performance.

I really enjoyed my sunny evening in Hyde Park seeing a really magical band. I just can see why it didn’t sell as well as they’d hoped. BST was way too expensive and overpriced for what it is. Obviously £2.50 is way too low, but I just despair for all those who did pay for a premium experience. Something a bit more mid range would have been more appropriate. Us Londoners are so cheap.
