Right. Looks like I've been jumping the gun again. Why can I never just sit back and wait for developments? Don't I know that good things come to those that wait? Aaarrrggghhh!

I've arranged to go see Common Rotation in Milton Keynes on Oct 2nd. It was the first I heard of any date they were contracted to in the UK this year, and I was afraid of missing out if I didn't snap up a ticket straightaway, even if they're appearing as the musical interlude to a massive sci-fi convention party (1,000 plus people -- really not my scene).

Still, not quite content with this (and who would be?), I felt I had to try and find out if there would be any other dates (I figured it wouldn't be good business sense if they came over for just the one gig), and so I sent my spies to Oakland with a detailed briefing -- and now I've just heard back from them. Having quizzed Adam on my behalf, this comes straight from the horse's mouth:

YES, there will be more shows, and with respect to where else they will be playing, in about a week, the UK venues and dates will be listed on their website. And (joy of joys), Jordan will be with them as well.

I will need to arrange for more time off from work, because if I can catch them at a later, smaller venue, that would certainly make me happier -- although I'm not sure at this stage if I can get anyone to come with me...and it means I still have to put off booking a flight until I know more. Damnit, Adam! You could have just let me know if you'd be touring for x amount of weeks!

Are you still going to the thing on the second? I'd much rather go to a smaller gig if that's an option. I'll still pay you the £15 of course

I am committed to go to the thing on the 2nd. But being greedy for more CoRo (yes Cass, CoRo), now I also want to go to at least one more show ;-). Maybe there'll be a living room concert in the SE somewhere, the Mon or Tue following. Warning: this is just me fanwanking; we'll have to wait for details to go up on the website later.

You decide what you want to do. Since we still don't know when and where exactly, there's no hurry for you to make up your mind. I'd still like you to come as it would be wonderful to meet you, but I do understand that crowds may not be your thing...and who knows, maybe we'll see one another at another venue.

I'm quite happy to go to the thing on the 2nd if you guys are still going. I just wasn't sure if you were or not

Let me know details and whatnot when you've picked a hotel. I need to work out where I'm going. LOL

Wonderful! And we may even have accommodation sharing a family sized room at the Travelodge directly opposite the stadium, too: roissy0 has just mentioned she's looking for roommate(s), so I've let her know we might be interested...

I've taken the week off work, and I'm hoping I'll get to see the band at some club or LRS venue in the SE during that time in addition to catching them in MK before I have to return home --I've turned into quite the fangirl, haven't I? -- but we are definitely on for Oct 2nd!

Marvellous. Sounds like this is all coming together quite nicely. Do you know where the nearest train station is to the gig? I'll need to sort out tickets some time this month

Do you know where the nearest train station is to the gig?

As far as I can tell, there's only 1 train station in MK...MK Central, located somewhere between Wolverton and Bletchley. Apparently, "The city has excellent rail connections provided by Virgin Rail which operate the North Western Premier line and Silverlink providing local services." Hmph - I guess you'll need to google it some more to find any real useful information...The homepage for the MK Dons wouldn't even say where the blasted stadium is!

Oh wait a minute - will this help: TRAINS:

From Luton Airport to/from Milton Keynes via Luton Town Centre Station
Every 2 hours
From London: Euston to/from Milton Keynes via Harrow, Watford, Hemel Hempstead, Birkhampstead and Leighton Buzzard
Every hour
From Northampton to/from Milton Keynes via Wolverton
Every hour
From Wolverhampton to/from Milton Keynes via Birmingham, Coventry and Rugby
Every hour
From Oxford to/from Milton Keynes via Buckingham and Bicester
Every hour

Anyway, the address you need to get to is:

Middleton Hall, thecentre:mk, Midsummer Arcade, Central Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, MK9 3BA.

Ok, I guess I'll sort out a train to MK and then get a taxi from the Station to the stadium

BTW, forget that address I gave earlier. That's the venue for the convention, not the party, which is in the MK Dons stadium.

Let us know what time your train arrives, and we can -probably- come and meet you at the station!
Sep. 4th, 2004 07:39 am (UTC)
Cool! I'll have a look now
Sep. 4th, 2004 07:43 am (UTC)
These are the times I can arrive. What time will you guys be aiming to get there for?
