Just saw this!!

I'll take anything but hopefully it's not a TIH themed show, it's never been much of a favourite of mine.

Who am I kidding, they could play an hour long instrumental version of A Little Soul and i'd be delighted!

I wonder does this mean that Jarv Is...won't release/tour a second record til afterwards. Hope not. I think they're just getting into their stride.

OK so in terms of the previous theory that it might be a Leadmill related reunion....is the Leadmill still being shut down next year or..?

Found this: www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/music/2022/apr/01/sheffield-music-venue-the-leadmill-at-centre-of-closure-row

Not from the UK, so forgive my ignorances about this stuff.

If this is 'legally' all he can tell us, I'm guessing a major event would figure in there somewhere... Somewhere controlling the flow of information. Hyde Park seems likely, since announcemens are staggered. Maybe bigger?

I dont know what the latest is, but if it's a question of cash and Pulp are now reactivated, I'm really surprised that the Leadmill live isn't on the cards unless the campaign goes into next year and Pulp do a warm-up show there or something.

Personally, I just don't think Pulp are suited to an open-air daylight gig. Dark and covered works best atmosphere-wise although if it's about finances, I can understand why they'd do festivals again and probably headline some and be second or third on the bill on others.

 Yeah - it'd be something else to have the chance to see them in a small venue. Eyes peeled for any warm-up shows in particular. I'm sensing a few road trips on the horizon. It's been framed as an 'encore' - best savour it while we can...

Unless, of course, these gigs are supporting new music. Seems unlikely, but 16% of the cognoscenti voted that way in the poll

What would be bigger than that? The Olympic Stadium?  

I suspect Glastonbury could be one, but they wont announce headliners for a while.

What's the likelihood they'll play the USA?

Didn't they do two nights at NY Radio City a decade ago? Presumably they'll get similar offers again. It's sad in some ways but nostalgia props-up the music industry and heritage acts cut through in terms of interest and excitement so much more than most of the big modern-day artists.

You'll have swathes of Latin America rabid to see them again too (remember they did their own show to nearly 20 thousand Mexicans in 2012). Probably depends on how arsed they are and band-members' health. Pulp have never overdone it with touring aside from the DC era, late 1995 to summer '96.

Do you think they could fill Wembley?

Arena, yes (Though Libertines had much of arena curtained out the other night). Stadium, unlikely without some good support.  Also you wouldnt really want to see a concert at Wembley Stadium.  I went once to see The Who who didnt sell out.  I got a resale ticket in front row upper tier for about £40 and the stage was so far away!  And food and drink was very expensive, so I just refilled my bottle of water.  That written it was better than seeing The Who at Hyde Park on the edge of the Golden Circle where I must have been about 300m from the stage with the sound cutting in and out with the wind.  Wasnt an issue with Pulp as there was no Golden Circle when they played.  Also Wembley is impossible to get home from.  

 

IMHO best venue last time out was Albert Hall, though tickets there are expensive.  Brixton was manic enough in my 40s, so not sure I could do it again in my 50s.  A few nights at The Barbican like Divine Comedy in September is what I would like.  All the LPs + B sides

.. I can dream.

It'd be nice if they went worldwide. If they can't for whatever reason, I understand, I'm just happy that they'll be playing shows at all.

Maybe this is a bit materialistic of me but I hope Pulp release some snazzy merch. I've always wanted a Pulp shirt without buying a bootleg - official shirts tend to be expensive! Would love the Mis-Shapes sleeve design on a shirt. Might end up making my own 80s Pulp one by block printing (either the My Lighthouse fish, Everybody's Problem design or something from the Freaks era).

EDIT: by 'official' I mean the secondhand ones from the 90s which are usually at least $100. Typically they aren't even in great condition!

Best start saving my pocket money. A UK tour would be nice. I haven't been to Glasto for 10 years & was toying with going next year... more than toying now.

Very unexpected and exciting times.

I'd love to know the angle behind the decision this time though, given that the last reunion was based around 'if we don't do it now while we're all still here, we might not get the chance again'.

And Jarvis was making noises towards the end/shortly after that if they did do any further activity, they'd have to have some form of new music behind it to validate it, but then nothing ever came. One of the last things Nick said in that on stage discussion thing they had around the time the movie was released was 'if you love doing something, keep doing it', so I get the idea he was always pushing to do some more.

It's going to be very interesting to know the story why they're back again 10 years on. If they reveal anything that is. I find it pretty cool how they've reformed twice over 2 10 year gaps since the original 2002 split, or hiatus or whatever you want to call it.

The money they all made in 2011/12 from the last reunion is running-out now. One last round of gigging to see them through to retirement. Help The Aged!
