Hoping for a good one, and that it is OK in Brussels after that epic mass shooting earlier today...

Should be okay, if any problem I'll update here as I arrive in Brussels tonight after work.
This is the venue where I saw the Manics for the first time and I've been back 8 times for different bands, one of the best in the world, great lights, great sound!

Perfect place for a beer before the gig: O'Reillys Irish pub is about 1 minute walk away from the venue!
We'll be(er) there! :-)

No the Carrefour Markey but I saw the Lidl on my way back to the hotel.
Very important, there's free WiFi at the venue

Gig to be broadcasted?

Thought I read somewhere that the Brussels gig may be broadcasted on tv.
Does anyone know if and when?

Thanx in advance.
