However, Kieran Evans said that they’ve been rehearsing some very rare stuff for the second half. Looking forward to seeing that.
I wonder what that very rare stuff was.....

I guess it depends on what you class as very rare.... Obvious the covers were but that kind of feels like cheating. This was the fourth tour since 2007 featuring Sleepflower, although I'll admit Solitude Sometimes Is is a bit less performed than I realised.

But compared to previous album tours it felt like we were missing something of the rarity of Donkeys/Natwest/Condemned to Rock n Roll/Sorrow 16 that have popped up previously.

They’ve never really done it and won’t start now, but I would like a bit more variation on the songs that they play each night. You get a maximum of 25 songs each tour with a couple of them being rotated throughout with 20-22 staples.

Can’t grumble too much I suppose as the last few years we’ve had The Holy Bible, EMG, and TIMT in full. Plus stuff like Condemned to Rock N Roll, Donkeys, Dreaming A City, Umbrella, The Second Great Depression, Horses Under Starlight etc.

Really hope that we get a nod to KYE in a few years time, give a couple of tracks a go that haven’t been played live (and IA which was only played once).

I love them but kin hell it can be frustrating live sometimes. Went to see Suede two nights at Manchester Albert Hall in April

First night
Second night

Manics at the Ritz a month later;
First night
Second night

Course there are plenty of bands who are as bad or worse for mixing it up as Manics and relatively, Suede are bloody good for mixing it up. Was gonna say I probably wouldn't moan if any band besides my favourite were so rigid with their sets, but thinking about it Manics and Suede are the only two bands I've ever seen more than once on the same tour.

I dunno... hopes and expectations aren't gonna be the same for everyone, but when it comes to your favourite band ever naturally they're gonna be a bit higher. They're such twats for writing off their own material, wouldn't be surprised if International Blue is the only song from the last album that gets played on future tours. I get why they'd steer from performing certain songs and why James wouldn't want to sing certain lyrics, but kin hell they've got 30 years of material to choose from now. Suppose it's a partly a familiarity thing too, to me, recently they look like they're going through the motions. Just done my 68th gig, which is a lot to me but bugger all compared to some I know. Wonder what the gigs I've been to last couple of years would've looked like to someone who'd only seen them a handful of times.

Ah, just wish they'd mix it up a bit more.

I was in my car earlier, and I suddenly remembered that after A Design For Life Nicky used to get out a skipping rope and skip at the end of Manics gigs.

This did happen, didn't it, and I haven't imagined it? I think it may have been the Greatest Hits tour, but I'm happy to be corrected.

Yes! He did it on the 1998 tour, here’s my blog post about one of the gigs where he did it

No problem, I enjoy reading your blog!

I thought it came about a bit later than that, but he must have been skipping for longer than I thought..... Can't remember it happening in 1998 when I saw the Manics, then didn't see them again till 2003....

Just had a quick trawl through some later diary entries and Nicky was skipping again on the last night of the December 2002 tour in Cardiff, so it’s likely that he skipped in 2003 too!

Yep, Sarah Sayuri Hare:

Good info page here with lists of what she's been in/upcoming if interested:

https://www.spotlight.com/interactive/cv/1/F245839.html

Looks like she's doing well, good for her, I think she was great in the Manics vids.

Interviewed James last night for an upcoming piece in my newspaper (The Japan Times). One of the best interviewees I've ever worked with - interesting, funny, engaging... swears a lot!

Will post the article here in due course (just ahead of the Japan gigs in Sept).

Months later and after the recent backlash against Jo Brand for joking about throwing acid instead of milkshakes over the likes of Nigel Farage, I’m still waiting for JDB to wise up to what a vile lyric this is in the current climate of acid attacks occurring and ruining lives on a regular basis.
