Arsenal lose high court battle over concerts


The BBC report that Arsenal have lost a high court fight which would have enabled them to hold more concerts at Emirates Stadium.

At the moment there’s a restriction to three per year which the club wanted to increase to six because of a ‘clear error’ in the planning process.

At the hearing Ken Friar said that the increased income was necessary for the club to be as competitive as possible. However, 0fficials said that if Arsenal could afford to pay £42.5m for Mesut Ozil, they could certainly afford to eat in a moderately priced restaurant.

It now seems as if they’ll have to scrape by on just three and could miss out on a killer shows from the likes of:

– Gunns ‘n’ Roses

– Basement Jaxx Wilshere

– Muset Ozil

– Belle and Sebastian Squillaci

– Linkin Park Chu Young

– Roarie Deacon Blue

– Mikael Sylvesyter

– Coleplay

– Robin van Morrisson

– Le Saux Solid Crew

– Taribo Westlife
