Concerted frustrations

So, this summer Penny is going to three different concerts. She’s going to see the Foo Fighters, the Chillis and Radiohead. I’m very happy for her, but I was somewhat grumbley since there was nothing that I was desperate to see or could make time for.

Then I saw it in this morning’s Metro. The O2 Wireless Festival 2006:

Friday: Massive Attack and DJ Shadow
Saturday: Zero 7 (which even makes up for James Blunt being there)
Sunday: Depeche Mode, Goldfrapp and Bauhaus

Genius!

Then I catch the dates, and it’s the 23rd to the 25th of June.
I’m in Germany. Aaargh!

There’s no justice in the world.

Update: There might be a way around this: Go to see Goldfrapp at the end of March and then just go to the Friday afternoon/evening part of the O2 festival to see Massive Attack and DJ Shadow…
It’s a crazy idea, but it might just work! Now just to check whether or not I’m booking one lot of tickets or two…

Update 2: Goldfrapp tickets booked, and just waiting to see if Alex & Alison are joining me for Massive Attack. Nice!
