Just heard on BBC News that Bury have been granted a license to hold up to 10 concerts a year and their manager has said that good times are just around the corner because of this. Would this be the catalyst that would boost us to full-time and a possible return to the Football League, or is it something that is just never going to happen. Discuss.

Does this not sound so very familiar, I understand the Chairman also want to hold boxing at Gigg Lane, was on BBC news today boasting how he has spent 1.5 million paying off Bury's debts, also sounds familiar

No reason not to hold a fight there as they currently have a world champion from the town who is proving very popular. I think it's a goer unlike the Vaughan bulls**t

Good one, also the only way they will get any decent players there.

It will be imteresting to see who they can actually attract to play there. Most big stadium acts probably wont look twice at it with both the Etihad and Old Trafford cricket ground both available as better options to host a large outdoor concert in Manchester and the MEN arena hosting huge names too. Non stadium sized acts would probably struggle to half fill even Bury's ground unless tickets were dirt cheap. Im sure most bands would rather play any number of Manchesters dedicated libe music venues than a half full football stadium.

all 'pie in the sky' fc united are leaving gigg lane and bury will miss the rent off them badly which is why they are looking at ways to make up the shortfall

They'll be looking at securing some local talent for this no doubt... Gary and Phil Neville must have already been booked,
as I saw a flyer recently advertising the Chuckle brothers, and they were down to play in Bury next summer rolleyes.gif

Our midfield could learn a thing or two from them. "From me to you, from me to you" rather than just "from me to the opposition!" biggrin.gif

I don't imagine they'll be booking currently successful acts any time soon. It'll probably be some 80's revival night once a Summer, with Rick Astley and Bananarama, if they're lucky.
