We have to refer to Neil by his full name in case any of you think you’re buying tickets to Will Young and end up bitterly disappointed. Evil multiconglomerate Barclaycard has announced its first two headliners for its British Summer Time Hyde Park events for 2019 – and they’re both playing the same night which could make getting hold of tickets interesting – no less than Bob Dylan and Neil Young are joint headliners. The organisers describe it as “a unique occasion, perhaps never to be repeated. Considered the greatest songwriters of their generation, their contribution to the history of rock music puts them above even their most legendary peers. ” So no pressure then.
Last year’s event featured the Rolling Stones and Carole King among others. Presale tickets via Barclaycard are available now, and general admission tickets go on sale from this Friday at 9am, starting at £75 and rising to £299 for diamond tickets, presumably not actually printed on diamonds.
