Tonight hosted this year’s Relentless Energy Drink Kerrang! Awards which saw a few surprise winners and few patently obvious ones along the way.

The full list can be seen here: Kerrang.com, just happy Lostprophets walked away with something eventhough I am sure people will think it an odd choice. Also well done to Paramore, a well deserved win.

Extra tickets released for Reading Festival

July 23, 2010 at 4:49 pm (Music News) (, , , , , , , , , )

The iconic summer festival, which this year features headlining sets from Blink 182, Guns n’ Roses and Arcade Fire, has now released an extra 3,500 tickets.

Thanks to Reading Borough Council agreeing to increase the capacity the site can now hold a massive 82,000 plus 4,999 guests!

Just a shame that one of the days is ruined by a band that shouldn’t even be headlining. They’re aren’t Guns n’ Roses anymore. They are just one troubled man trying to cling on to a name that means nothing without the full line-up.

The fresh batch of tickets will go on sale tomorrow morning (24th) at 10am.

Following back surgery that forced them to pull out of Glastonbury this year, U2’s Bono is set to return to the stage and resume their US tour.

Bono told E! Online: “I’m ready, rebuilt by German engineering. Better design, I’m told.

“I actually wanted to apologise for the trouble that this injury has put you all through and those of you that bought tickets and organised hotels and travel plans, it’s a very big deal… we don’t take you for granted.”
