Any Christmas gigs???

Does anyone reckon we'll get any seasonal Christmas gigs this year? It could be a nice link between both album releases.

Wouldn't it be brilliant to have something special at Christmas James could sing Last Christmas, we could all worry about colds and waiting in the wind and rain and wear leopard print fur coats 'cos we need to!

God yes. I kind of don't think there's been a Manic's tour without a Christmas gig (and the cold, wind, rain and the need for the fake fur coat of course)

YES I WOULD LIKE THIS AND KIND OF NEED IT.

Post-tour blues kicking in big time, along with gross Glaswegian-sweat-related post-tour lurgy. Eurgh.

So cheer me up Manics! Announce a Christmas show at the O2, promise to play something off every album, and have Nicky dress as a Christmas tree. With fairy lights and everything.

Post tour blues have certainly hit me too The thought of a Christmas gig would be just what I need, glitter, leopard print, boas, plenty of festive "fizz" and Nicky in a skirt (even if it was one last time) could really do with it after Manchester. After a night that great I need to start planning the next.

Winter Wonderland would be amazing.

A friend of mine got me one and I will love them forever for it. They are my guardian angel and I owe them big-time. It was a very special gig.
