Why do bands play Newcastle? Shows seem to always sell much shitter there. Example being Brand New's show still having Standing & Seating on sale. Also, have seen people who go to gigs in Newcastle say the crowds can be terrible there too.

I find it strange how bands keep missing out Birmingham but the play in Southampton... I remember seeing tour dates a few days ago for a band where they were playing a 2,500 capacity venue in London, and then a 400 capacity venue in Southampton. Surely that means there isn't enough demand in Southampton? I would have thought so anyway. The band probably could have played a ~1,500 in Birmingham instead (if there is one), since it is our second biggest city.

Can't believe Hit the Deck managed to get Brand New such a great year for them.

Are you serious? Newcastle shows are the only time bands play the North at all, let alone the North East. For many, many people Newcastle is the only chance they have to go to gigs, even if it means a 40 minute drive to do so.

This. If tours don't go to Newcastle there's nothing else close.

I feel equally as left out in Hull, closest usual place is Leeds. Trains don't run late enough and it's a solid 60 miles drive each way

Yup, love it here - there's almost no question whether the band you want to see are stopping by.

I say that, but there was a point when a few of the smaller bands would do a circuit where they missed out Manchester in favour of doing 3 slightly smaller gigs in Leeds/Liverpool/Stoke. Front Bottoms did this last time they were over, notably. Not that common though.

Yeah agreed, always annoying when bands pick Leeds over Manchester. Thought we might have lost some gigs with Moho burning down but there seems to be no stopping the tours coming here.

Is their potentially a promoter in the area not in business anymore or something?

I get your point, for sure. It just seems like shows their don't get the sort of crowds other places do though.

Who are these 'people who go to gigs' ? I've seen some of the best crowds ever in Newcastle and lots and lots of bands genuinely love it here too. Granted, the scene used to be a bit shittier when 'hardcore' first became a thing and everyone decided to hate anything that they couldn't two-step to.
