Definitely worth it, I always thought there would be some songs from that album I'd never get to hear live, and some great choices of rarities played to boot!

Well worth going but it was not 1994 nor were the Manics, James won't learn about his smoking & then giving people on the 1st night at the Roundhouse his soar throat in a evening which should have been much better but was mediocre but top set list.

Finally voted on this, 89 yes, 2 no. Wonder if the 2 no actually went. Yeah remember a few nay sayers last year and I don't really get why. Yeah, there's the Richey worship but they're still 75% of the band that made The Holy Bible. Do New Order have no right to perform Joy Division songs? Got a feeling for some of the nay sayers it might be a case of oh I was old enough to see them in 94, they're mine, not yours and anything now won't be the same. Ageism, nothing more.

I fucking loved it anyway, both the UK tours. Managed to get to eight all in all and loved each one of them. I loved the choice of venues too, don't think academies or arenas would've done it justice, Usher Hall, Olympia and Albert Hall were lovely and historic. Barrowlands is always a good time, it looks like a fucking carnival. Ending in a castle... Seeing my favourite band perform my favourite album, hearing songs I never thought I'd see live.. Definitely worth it. Financially crippled me but completely worth it.
