  1. I presume the implication is that they'll be on stage and the fans will be below, by the front row on the barrier? I saw a picture of Boyzlife somewhere which was a similar set up. It was... grim to say the least.

    Hopefully it won't be that bad. I have faith (that's a lie, I don't, it's going to be dreadful)
     
  3. Okay but if H was on a platform above me in a kilt and I knew he had a jockstrap on....
    I need to lie down.
     
  4. I've just cancelled mine and taken the £100 hit whilst I still can. I had such a lovely time at the HMV signing that I don't think this will come anywhere close.

  5. I'm hoping it won't be too bad and awkward if it is a bad scenario hopefully they have the foresight that there will be some sort of opportunity during the festival/anniversary and offer a voucher for next year and people that have booked this year will reach some sort of deal
     
  6. I'm kinda amazed anyone booked M&G without automatically assuming it would be a set up like this? I only have regular tickets and when I booked I half wasn't even expecting the tour to go ahead. Surely it was always going to be this way if at all?

    I think it’s unfair to judge anyone’s expectations on the meet and greet front. How were we to know a year ago when most of us booked our tickets that we’d still be in this kind of situation? We didn’t, it’s been twists and turns at every corner.

  9. It's a shame they never streamed the Attitude Awards there was a bit Lisa walked to the front of the stage during her solo verse and kneeled down and was sublime but there seems to be very little footage about about only from phones and mini clips
     
  10. I feel the same. I'm still hoping it's not going to be too bad. However if it is, due to the above, it's not completely out of the question to expect a part refund. Even if it's like £50 or something.
    ...the gig would still be great though!
     
  11. Not judging anyone, just a bit taken aback. But I apologise to anyone I might have offended with that assertion because in hindsight, my profession means I have perhaps been more exposed to certain details that might have made me more pessimistic when the tickets went on sale.

  15. I'm not judging anyone who have any opinions regarding the meet and greets, but this time last year, politically we were promised that anyone vaccinated's lives would pretty much be back to normal, that the vaccines would be in circulation from the start of the year onwards and that everyone over 18 would have been offered it by the summer.

    The fact that we're still living a very sensitive and sheltered life despite most people now having either had Covid or being double vaccinated, makes me wonder why those who have 'negative' results, or a covid passport cannot be within a certain distance to the group. There were people closer to the group at the attitude awards than there will be at the Meet and Greet, who won't have paid £500 for the privilidge.

    I see we still can’t turn “slightest touch” up on the radio yet (as it’s not on the radio2 playlist next week)
     
  17. I think they meant that we can turn it up on H's radio show only...
     
  18. Awkward. That post definitely felt like a knee jerk reaction to stuff they're seeing online. I'm sure they have someone in here. Because let's be honest, Radio 2 would eat that up if they were asked to add it. At this point, I'm not expecting any kind of promo or video for it.
     
  19. Jeez! Went on Facebook today for the first time in ages and wow at the reactions of some fans over the meet and greet situation. Absolutely fuming that all 5 of them wont sign their skip load of Steps related paraphernalia. It's a bit entitled to think in the currant global situation that you'd actually be able to meet the group. It only takes one person who has been in contact with someone with Covid to infect a member of the group, who could infect the rest of them or the crew and then the whole tour is shut down. And you can carry the virus even if you are vaccinated and have no symptoms. There's a lot of talk about the vaccines effectiveness. I think it starts waning after about 6-9 months and so is less effective then. I have seen vaccinated people who are ill with Covid now. Being vaccinated isn't a magical cure, it doesn't mean you can do what you want. Precautions still need to be taken.
     
  20. Yeah, weird to think you could meet the group you’ve paid for a meet and greet with.
