Interestingly, Download announced Refused as a UK festival exclusive, not a UK exclusive. That means maybe a tour or a UK show might be in the works for Refused.

Or maybe I'm reading too much into it.

Desperate to see Refused... however, I wasn't into paying to go see Sonisphere, and probably even less so for Download (only 2 bands I'd like to see that day)...

REALLY hope they announce a UK club show

Sonisphere billed it as Refused's "only UK show". Really hope that's changed.

The way the MCS show was announced was pretty awesome. Got my ticket to the London Commit THis TO Memory gig

I'm selling two Wonder Years tickets to the 23rd April show at The Peel. If anyone's interested get in contact.
