  2. Sorry, I didn't see it mentioned in here. A few days ago people were speculating

  3. It has slowly been selling but I can see the black curtain being utilised at some of the concerts. I'm sure it'll sell nearer the time too, people thinking "ooh what's on" and grabbing some cheap tickets. They could do worse than put out a Groupon. I know there's a couple of NHS/carers incentives where tickets are being balloted for the O2 as well. Even if they gave tickets away for free, they'd still make money on the merch.

  4. Better than empty seats I suppose

    I agree, if you take a look at any tour that's happening before the end of the year and non are sold out. JLS for example is probably about on a par seating chart wise give or take a couple of venues.

  6. Plus again surely having half a venue buying drinks, food and merch is better than another 6 months empty.

  7. Gave H & Claire's album a go and...I have thoughts.
    Were some of the songs meant for Steps? Because there are some that sound like rejected B-sides. Some of the slower ones are great though and I am shocked how good H sounds on most of it.
    The Beauty & The Beast cover is stunning and I liked their take on the Jessica Simpson x Marc Anthony song There You Were too.
    Centre of My Heart would be perfect as a closing credit song to a 00's Rom Com. I live.

    Cover art is awful though, they both look about 20 years older than they were. The look younger now than they did on the cover.

  10. Yep it's not a home run of an album by any stretch, but the highs are high. And they both sound absolutely incredible on it.

    Honestly though, All Out Of Love is just solid gold, grade A pop music. They were never going to do anything that topped that. What a fucking banger.

    It also gave us this, which is bloody fantastic in terms of pure pop performance. This is surely the most challenging dance Claire has ever attempted, and she largely pulls it off with ease.

     
  11. Wasn’t All Out Of Love recorded as a knee jerk reaction to Half A Heart ‘only’ getting to #8? The record company made them record something “a bit more Steps”? I wonder if any other songs on the album were added around that time because of that?

  12. Yeah I do remember that story. I'm not mad at the record company interference on that occasion.
     
  13. All Out of Love brings memories of Jo Whiley being incredible snotty when she was doing the chart countdown one week
     
  14. What did she say?
     
  15. From the conventions photo ops I've seen it's the best screen pic I've seen but it still looks like an awkward photo. If there is a safe way the photo op could be on stage while the group and separated equal distance too so at least they could do One for Sorrow/Tragedy pose and bring the Neon Steps logo out behind them

    Or we just parody the LSL glass photo

  17. The Collarbone pic a few pages back seems like the best idea.

  20. Jo Whiley scared they'd stop her free Melody Maker subscription.
