Woo! That was absolutely fucking immense. LOVED IT. So happy. First gig in two years and it was so absolutely worth it. I was on the barrier bang in front of Nicky and honestly the crowd looked to be having a really good time from where I was standing. Acoustic Postcards took me completely by surprise and was wonderful (I've always loved that song), and Slash and Burn was completely unexpected and resulted in me doing actual jumping up and down which I NEVER do (so possibly was quite bad at), and that excitement carried over into LBN and YLU. Fantastic night. I was going to do a sort of proper write up, but I'm buzzing too much so this'll have to do.

Honestly, one of my all time favourite Manics gigs. Other's experience will vary.

What happened in the front rows?

I was halfway back tonight, much further than usual but I’m battling a very ill-timed IBS flare up today and needed some breathing space. Still had a great time.

Some thoughts:

Can Cat Southall do all the Manics duets from now on?

I liked PFAYM much more in this version than the regular one!

Slash’n’ burn was a thrill but I overdid it with the leapin’ about and my pain came back in a big way, had to spend the rest of the gig clutching my abdomen with one hand while throwing the other in the air triumphantly to YLU and ADFL.

All in all preferred Sunday but both were great gigs!

Oh, Fluffy introduced Complicated Illusions by saying it was about the peace and serenity he experienced whenever he heard his mother's voice, which choked me up a bit. Poor poppets.

They let me in. After all that worry she just looked at the covid pass

It was brilliant ..didn't want to queue but still ended up third row so not complaining. Got some clips of PFAYM which I really like acoustic ..James playing the intro to sweet child of mine and the chat before can't take my eyes off you plus the first bit of the song

Guitar packed up half way through you love us and he had to run over to get another one cos tech wouldn't come out...that's happened before ...is he shy or something? Didn't stop the song or anything but much gesticulating.

James introduced Cat Southall as Cat Power before LBN ...that was funny ... She was great ..as said above can she do all the shows please?

There's more but can't remember now...I was so close to not going and sooo glad I did

Highlights for me were PFAYM acoustic ,unexpectedly lovely and highlighted the strength of that song perfectly .Tsunami being played just right with a very heavy chorus and Slash&Burn being played with energy.

Wasn't sure if it took them a few songs to get going again after ME (Orwellian sounded distinctly out of tune up in the balcony) or if it was just me but once they clicked it was great

That was a nice surprise. How dare people talk around me when a bona-fide rarity was taking place, and may never be posted on the set list again.


The sound was quite bad to my ears before the acoustic section. JDB's guitar sounded like it was being strangled, vocals quite low, drums too prominent. After acoustic section, it sounded pretty much fine.

Agree with pretty much all of this. Only my sixth Manics gig, a newbie compared to a lot of you, but loved every second of tonight's gig.

I didn't see them but interested to hear their take on acoustic Postcards From A Young Man… I really enjoyed it. It felt so much more raw and nostalgic.

50 seconds of acoustic PFAYM: https://youtu.be/iAKv_tPu4aI

Agree about annoying crowd. First a random drunk woman pushed in front of me and kept flopping her very tickly curly hair on my arm, then her even drunker boyfriend arrived and kept putting his arm around me and for some reason he then kissed my head - this was between support and Manics! I know they were just being friendly and "letting their hair down", ho ho, but it was more than I was up for after 18 months of blissful isolation. Suffice to say... I moved.
