Okay so you've probably just realised, along with me, that the Sonisphere and T in the Park dates clash. If you're going to one of them (Sonisphere tickets out now, T in the Park come out Wednesday) then have a good time, stay safe and how come you never invited me? But if you plan to stay in the warm and dry using the telly / radio then you can catch Sonisphere on the website and T in the Park will be all over Radio 1 and the BBC.
