With the band's 40th anniversary looming, wonder how it will be marked/celebrated?

 

Anyone got any ideas?

 

Wonder if there will be some special releases to mark the occasion?  A box set of every CD single would be nice.

 

What would you like to see?

 

:P

Well they didn't do much to mark their 30th anniversary in 2006. We had the release of U218 singles in Nov of that year - they were still touring HTDAAB I guess. Do they really do the anniversary thing? Not so sure. 20 years ago PoP was in the making I guess.

I think we gotta see what Sept brings with this LA gig - will it simply be an awards type performance with a couple of greatest hits thrashed out - or will there be something else?

In terms of the lifetime of any band though, it is quite a milestone - even more of a milestone that it's still the original line up - the same four lads that have evolved, grown with each other, and that is really a big part of the appeal of the band, in my view anyway.

For me, if SOE ain't ready to unleash to the world - perhaps a teaser - that would be good - an EP - 4 track teaser. I'd rather have new material than something else. I mean, not so long since the Paris DVD, so hope next releases would be focusing on something new (akind to an Electrical Storm or a Window in the Sky).

I only know of what fans have planned for them. They've never been ones to really celebrate anniversaries publicly at least that I'm aware of. I think something marking their career would be fun. I'm thinking a video look back kind of thing.
