As soon as they said there was going to be a one-off thing at the end of this year I thought it'd be the O2 somehow. Kind of weird it's on 17th December as I saw Lady Gaga on the same date at the O2 last year as well. At least I'll get to hear some songs I've not heard live before. Good job they're not doing them in order though; there'd be nobody left by the end.

I hope O2 priority is better than it was last time I used it for the O2; it only offered me the really shit seats and not standing. Can't believe people are panicking about getting tickets though; have you seen the size of the venue? It's hardly going to sell out in minutes, or at all.

Can't wait to hear how James will cope with singing 38 songs in a row, it's not like Nicky is going to do a solo spot half way through

I can finally cross Love's Sweet Exile, Revol and She Is Suffering off the list. But yes, Grace Of God again after all these years! Excited!

This sounds special. I think I'll go. Fingers crossed that James stays indoors all winter and saves his voice.

Good point. He should keep some warm honey and lemon tea or some steroids handy.

We have managed to get a hotel in the Docklands area for 54 which is pretty good for London.
